Asap



Name : As Scalable As Possible (Asap)

Laboratory : IRISA

URL : http://www.irisa.fr/asap/

Description :

Asap is located at Institut de recherche en informatique et systèmes aléatoires (IRISA) and involves researchers from the University of Rennes and Inria Rennes. Asap has currently 16 members: 6 permanents and 10 Phd students.

Their research activities range from theoretical bounds to practical protocols and implementations for large-scale distributed dynamic systems to cope with the recent and tremendous evolution of distributed systems. Effectively we observed huge evolutions:

  • Scale shift in terms of system size, geographical spread, volume of data
  • Dynamic behavior due to versatility, mobility, connectivity patterns

These characteristics lead to a large amount of uncertainty. Mastering such uncertainty is actually our goal.

They aim at providing a wide range of applications (from content delivery networks to sensors networks, from backup systems to voice over IP, from publish-subscribe systems to genomic databases). They focus our research on two main areas: information management and dissemination. They believe such services are basic building blocks of many distributed applications in two networking contexts: Internet and wireless sensors. These two classes of applications, although exhibiting very different behaviors and constraints, clearly require scalable solutions.

To achieve this ambitious goal, they need to tackle the issues both along the theoretical and practical sides of scalable distributed computing and ASAP will be organized along the following themes:

  • Models and abstractions: dealing with dynamics
  • Dealing with Internet-scale resource management
  • Data management in wireless self-organizing networks

BD



Name : Groupe Base de Données (BD)

Laboratory : LIRIS

URL : http://liris.cnrs.fr/equipes?id=61

Description :

The database group (BD) involved in this department includes 14 faculty members (3 professors and 11 associate professors). The group investigates data management techniques for advanced applications such as software services, data streams and dynamic environments. Nowadays, data provenance could be of various sources (sensors, services) and made available on various storage supports. The group builds on (by revising or extending) established techniques from databases, logic and constraints domains.

Without completeness, declarative languages, streams, query processing, security, distributed indexation, distributed query optimization in large and dynamic environments with autonomous participants are pertinent skills for the project, nor can we forget information society, the strategic role of big data, and geopolitical issues. Furthermore, the team experience with the setting-up of experimentation platforms (a service-oriented query platform in OPTIMACS ANR project, a data-oriented Intelligent Building platform at LIRIS/INSA-Lyon) will be particularly useful.

CIDRe



Name : Confidentiality, Integrity, Availability, Repartition (CIDRe)

Laboratory : IRISA

URL : http://www.rennes.supelec.fr/ren/rd/cidre/

Description :

CIDRE (standing for "Confidentiality, Integrity, Availability, repartition") is a joint research group between Inria, University Rennes 1, CNRS and Supélec, focusing on the security of distributed information systems. CIDRE is a research group of the IRISA laboratory, and the continuation of the former SSIR research group.

In the field of security and distributed systems, the CIDRE team focuses mainly on the three following topics:

  • Intrusion Detection;
  • Privacy Protection;
  • Trust Management.

GDD



Name : Gestion de Données Distribuées (GDD)

Laboratory : LINA

URL : https://sites.google.com/site/gddlina/

Description :

GDD is located at Laboratoire d'Informatique de Nantes Atlantique (LINA) and involves researchers from the University of Nantes working on data management, and distributed systems. GDD has currently 18 members: 8 permanents and 10 Phd students.

GDD stands for "Gestion de Données Distribuées" that can be translated to "Distributed Data Management". GDD is mainly focused on distributed data management in large scale distributed systems. GDD has expertise in Distributed Systems, Distributed Collaborative Systems, Distributed Database systems and Web of Data.

Their topics includes:

  • Fundations of distributed system; distributed algorithms, consistency, replication, availability, fault-tolerance, scalability
  • Privacy and confidentiality in distributed data management
  • Distributed Data Management in Web of Data: data integration, social semantic web, linked data.

These topics are present in the following scientific domains:

  • Distributed and Parallel Computing (ICDCS, PODC),
  • Databases (VLDB,SIGMOD),
  • WWW (WWW,ISWC).

GDD is member of Labex Comin Labs. The CominLabs federate the best teams from Bretagne and Nantes regions in the broad area of telecommunications, from electronic devices to wide area distributed applications “over the top”.
