Senior Associate Professor Abderazek Ben Abdallah of the Adaptive Systems Laboratory was invited to Huazhong University of Science and Technology, China, as a lecturer of an intensive course entitled  Distributed Computing .
During his visit to HUST for about 2 weeks from March 1, he gave a series of lectures on the design of distributed systems to about 70 students in the School of Software Engineering. Lectures covering various topics such as software architecture, computer communication and process synchronization were provided to help students understand the fundamental concepts and techniques in distributed computing. By the end of the course, the students reached their goal to develop a complete system using techniques such as process, thread management, synchronization and sockets/RPCs.
He also visited Hong Kong University of Science and Technology from March 25 and gave 4 lectures about Network-on-Chip to approximately 80 graduate students.
At both universities, he discussed possible collaborations with the University of Aizu.
