REGAL project-team (Inria Paris - Rocquencourt / LIP6, coordinator), SCORE team, Trifork A/S (Denmark), Universidade Nova de Lisboa (Portugal), Technische Universität Kaiserslautern (Germany), Basho Technologies (United Kingdom), Rovio Entertainment (Finland), Université Catholique de Louvain (Belgium), Koç Üniversitesi (Turkey)



SyncFree FP7-ICT project brings together academic researchers and industrial practitioners to explore new approaches to data consistency at a massive scale. On-line services including social networks and multi-player games handle huge quantities of frequently changing shared data. Maintaining its consistency is simple in a centralised cloud, but no longer possible due to increased scalability requirements. Instead, data must be replicated across several distributed data centers, requiring new principled approaches.

In this context, SCORE team is interested in designing new and useful replicated data types and in evaluating their performance and behaviour using the massive corpus of real-usage data provided by industrial partners.

Collaborations in European Programs, except FP7

  • Program: EIT ICT Labs

  • Project acronym: CityCrowdSource

  • Project title:

  • Duration: 12 months 2013 - 2013

  • Coordinator: Thomas Silverston

  • Other partners: BMU (Hungary), Imperial College London (UK), SAP (Germany), Cap Digital (France)

  • Abstract: This activity aims at leveraging the potential of crowd-based applications in urban contexts. Crowd-based data collection in combination with official data will lead to a vastly improved coverage and quality of digital information for urban areas.The added-value of the proposal is in : (1) the three services: trust, privacy and crowd processes modelling that are not present in any crowd-sourcing platform available today, (2) the deployment and of these services on top of different crowd-sourcing platforms and (3) the experimentation of these platforms in real life city scenarios. To this end, the activity combines Test bed, Open Source and Living labs catalysts.
