Visits of International Scientists

Gene Cooperman, Professor at the Northeastern University (Boston, USA), made a one-week visit in Myriads team in June 2015.

Georgios Ioannidis (PhD student at EPFL, Switzerland) made a 7-months visit in the Myriads team (Jun-Dec 2015). The goal was to reinforce the collaboration between the two teams in the context of the HARNESS FP7 project.

Carlos Ruiz Diaz (PhD student at the University of Guadalajara, Mexico) is visiting Myriads for 6 months (Sep 2015-Feb 2016) in the context of his PhD thesis, directed by Héctor Duran-Limon and co-advised by Nikolaos Parlavantzas. The visit is supported by a grant from Rennes Metropole.

Palakiyem Wallah, assistant professor at the University of Kara (Togo) visited Myriads team from September to December 2015 in the framework of his PhD thesis, which is co-advised by Cédric Tedeschi and Jean-Louis Pazat.

Anita Sobe, post-doctoral researcher at the University of Neuchâtel (Switzerland) visited Myriads team for two weeks in April 2015 in the context of the Nesus COST Action. During her stay, she has worked with Anne-Cécile Orgerie and their work has been accepted in the PDP 2016 conference.


Philippe Fabian (M1 Université Rennes 1) did his internship of first year of Master under the supervision of Marin Bertier and Cédric Tedeschi. Philippe devised and tested in a simulator heuristics for speeding-up the execution of chemical programs on top of an unstructured decentralized platform.

Timothée Haudebourg (L3 ENS Rennes) has done a two-month internship (June - July 2015) under the supervision of Anne-Cécile Orgerie. He has worked on quantifying the energy-efficiency of green leverages in wired networks.

David Guyon (M2 Université Rennes 1) has done his master internship under the supervision of Anne-Cécile Orgerie and Christine Morin. He has worked on energy-efficient cloud elasticity for data-driven applications. He has presented this work at the IEEE GreenCom conference (December 2015).

Ghada Moualla (M2 Université Rennes 1) has done his master internship under the supervision of Christine Morin and Matthieu Simonin. She has worked on reliable and efficient data processing in a cloud environment.

Akshat Puri (M2, EIT ICT Labs, Université Rennes 1) has done his internship under the supervision of Nikolaos Parlavantzas and Guillaume Pierre. He worked on elasticity of cloud applications and approaches for application migration across different cloud vendors.

Benjamin Soulas (M2 Université Rennes 1) did its internship of second year of Master under the supervision of Matthieu Simonin and Cédric Tedeschi. Benjamin developed the Storm Watcher prototype, a tool exposing monitoring information about the execution of programs running within the Storm framework.

Research stays abroad

Following a first visit which took place in 2014, Ancuta Iordache visited Maxeler Technologies (London, U.K.) again from February 2015 to April 2015. This visit reinforced the collaboration between the two teams in the context of the HARNESS E.U. project, and was funded by the EIT Digital Doctoral Training Center. A concrete outcome of this visit is a joint research paper which is currently under evaluation.

Ismael Cuadrado Cordero, who is a student of the EIT ICT Labs Doctoral School, visited the Queen Mary University of London (UK) for a research internship from June to August 2015. He was hosted in Chris Phillip's team working on micro-clouds architectures for neighborhood services. A joint research paper is currently under review on this topic.
