Distributed and Pervasive Systems Group

Institute of Computer Science, University of Tartu


The Distributed and Pervasive Systems (DPS) Group conducts cutting edge research that focuses on challenges surrounding the development of systems for distributed networking and pervasive sensing. Of particular interest is the design, development, and exploitation of these systems for scientific investigations. Key research challenges addressed by the group include:

  • Energy-efficiency of resource constrained devices
  • Trade-offs for sensor data quality and collaborative sampling (crowdsensing)
  • Automation of distributed pervasive systems
The group is lead by Associate Professor, Huber Flores.


We are contributing in the technical organization of IEEE HotPOST 2020

HotPOST 2020 (co-located with INFOCOM 2020) is the 12th International Workshop on Hot Topics in Pervasive Mobile and Online Social Networking. The workshop will be held in Beijing, China.

Our group is organizing IEEE PerCrowd 2020

PerCrowd 2020 (co-located with PerCom 2020) is the 3rd International Workshop on Context-awareness for Multi-device Pervasive and Mobile Computing. The workshop will take place in Austin, Texas, USA. (March 27, 2020)

Open positions: 2 postdocs and 3 PhD student fellowships at our group
