Welcome to the home of the Distribution and Concurrency (DisCo) research group.

DisCo is a group within the Software Languages Lab (SOFT) at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) focused on programming languages and tooling for concurrent and distributed systems. In particular, we explore several research topics including debuggers, secure programming technology, and programming abstractions for distributed systems like replicated data types.

The group collaborates nationally and internationally with leading labs on the different research topics. Recent collaborations include work with Prof. Ferreira and Prof. PreguiƧa (Universidade Nova Lisboa) on replicated data types, Dr. Ducasse (INRIA Lille) on the Pharo platform and the lecturer Dr. Marr (University of Kent) on language implementation techniques for concurrent programs.

If you are interested in these topics or our work, feel free to contact us.
