The TransForm School on Research Directions in Distributed Computing (SRDC 2013) was held in Heraklion, Crete Island, Greece, on June 10-14, 2013 at the premises of the Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas (FORTH). It was organized by Prof. Panagiota Fatourou in the context of the EC-funded Marie Curie Initial Training Network, called TransForm.

The school included a series of talks by twenty renowned researchers covering hot topics on current research in the general area of distributed computing with emphasis on multi-core computing, synchronization protocols, and transactional memory. Additionally, it provided discussion sections on future research directions in the field. The school also hosted short presentations by graduate students and early-stage researchers where they had the chance to discuss their current research work.

The school was very successful with about 65 participants in total. Out of them, 23 were well-known researchers (both in academia and the industry) from all over the world, and the rest were early stage researchers and graduate students from 16 different Universities and Institutions located in Europe, Israel, Canada or the US. The school served as a major dissemination and training activity of TransForm and significantly contributed towards the dissemination of advanced scientific knowledge on the field and the promotion of international contacts among key scientists from academia and industry.
