International Initiatives

Inria International Labs

  • Title: Joint Laboratory for Extreme-Scale-Computing.

  • International Partners:

    • University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign (USA)

    • Argonne National Laboratory (USA),

    • Barcelona Supercomputing Center (Spain),

    • Jülich Supercomputing Centre (Germany)

    • Riken Advanced Institute for Computational Science (Japan)

  • Start year: 2009

  • The purpose of the Joint Laboratory for Extreme Scale Computing is to be an international, virtual organization whose goal is to enhance the ability of member organizations and investigators to make the bridge between Petascale and Extreme computing. The JLESC organizes a workshop every 6 months DataMove participates to. DataMove developed several collaborations related to in situ processing with Tom Peterka group (ANL) , the Argo exascale operating system with Swann Perarnau (ANL).

  • Title: Anomalies Detection and Handling towards Exascale Platforms

  • International Partner:

    • University of Chicago (United States) - Argonne National Laboratory (ANL)

  • Start year: 2014. End year: 2016.

  • The Anomalies@exascale project intends to prospect new scheduling solutions for very large parallel computing platforms. In particular, we consider the new problems related to fault tolerance raising with the developments of exascale platforms. We expect to define new ways to detect both execution failures and more transient performance anomalies. Information gathered from the detectors will then be taken into account by schedulers to implement corrective measures. PI: Frederic Wagner

Inria Associate Teams Not Involved in an Inria International Labs

  • Title: Exascale Computing Scheduling and Energy

  • International Partners:

    • UFRGS, PUC Minas and UPS (Brazil)

  • Duration: 2014 - 2016

  • See also: https://team.inria.fr/exase/

  • The main scientific context of this project is high performance computing on Exascale systems: large-scale machines with billions of processing cores and complex hierarchical structures. This project intends to explore the relationship between scheduling algorithms and techniques and the energy constraints present on such exascale systems. PI: Jean-Marc Vincent (Polaris)

Participation in Other International Programs

  • Title: International Laboratory in High Performance and Ubiquitous Computing

  • International Partner (Institution - Laboratory - Researcher):

    • UFRGS (Brazil)

  • Duration: 2011 - 2018

  • See also: http://licia-lab.org/

  • The LICIA is an Internacional Laboratory and High Performance and Ubiquitous Computing born in 2011 from the common desire of members of Informatics Institute of the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul and of Laboratoire d’Informatique de Grenoble to enhance and develop their scientific partnership that started by the end of the 1970. LICIA is an Internacional Associated Lab of the CNRS, a public french research institution. It has support from several brazilian and french research funding agencies, such as CNRS, Inria, ANR, European Union (from the french side) and CAPES, CNPq, FAPERGS (from the Brazilian side). DataMove is deeply involved in the animation of LICIA. Bruno Raffin is LICIA associate director.

  • International Partner (Institution - Laboratory - Researcher):

    • UFRGS (Brazil)

  • Duration: 2013 - 2016

  • PI: Bruno Raffin (DataMove) and Alexandre Carissimi (UFRGS)
