Distributed Computing Theory continues to be one of the most active research fields in Theoretical Computer Science today. Besides its foundational topics (such as consensus and synchronization), it is currently being enriched with many new topics inspired from modern technological advances (e.g., the Internet). In this note, we present eight open problems in Distributed Computing Theory that span a wide range of topics – both classical and modern.
