This book constitutes the proceedings of the 28th International Symposium on Distributed Computing, DISC 2014, held in Austin, TX, USA, in October 2014. The 35 full papers presented in this volume were carefully reviewed and selected from 148 full paper submissions. In the back matter of the volume a total of 18 brief announcements is presented. The papers are organized in topical sections named: concurrency; biological and chemical networks; agreement problems; robot coordination and scheduling; graph distances and routing; radio networks; shared memory; dynamic and social networks; relativistic systems; transactional memory and concurrent data structures; distributed graph algorithms; and communication.
