  • FogGuru is a doctoral training project which aims to to train eight talented PhD students with an innovative and inter-sectoral research program to constitute the next generation of European Cloud and Fog computing experts. Besides their scientific and technical education, FogGuru's PhD students will receive extensive training in technological innovation and entrepreneurship as well as soft skills. These combined skills will enable them to fully master the innovation process stemming from fundamental research towards invention and development of innovative products and services, and to real-life deployment, experimentation and engagement with beta-testers.

  • Fed4FIRE+ is a successor project to Fed4FIRE. In Fed4FIRE+, we more directly integrate Grid'5000 into the wider eco-system of experimental platforms in Europe and beyond using results we developed in Fed4FIRE. We have developed a generalized proxy mechanisms to allow users with Fed4FIRE identities to interact with services giving access to different testbeds but not designed to support Fed4FIRE identities. Fed4FIRE+ has started January 1st, 2017.

Collaborations in European Programs, Except FP7 & H2020


Participant : Anne-Cécile Orgerie.

  • Program: ICT COST

  • Project acronym: NESUS

  • Project title: Network for Sustainable Ultrascale Computing (ICT COST Action IC1305)

  • Duration: 2014 - 2018

  • Coordinator: Prof. Jesus Carretero, University Carlos III of Madrid, Spain, http://www.nesus.eu

  • Other partners: 33 COST countries and 11 non-COST countries

  • Abstract: Ultrascale systems are envisioned as large-scale complex systems joining parallel and distributed computing systems that will be two to three orders of magnitude larger that today's systems. The EU is already funding large scale computing systems research, but it is not coordinated across researchers, leading to duplications and inefficiencies. The goal of the NESUS Action is to establish an open European research network targeting sustainable solutions for ultrascale computing aiming at cross fertilization among HPC, large scale distributed systems, and big data management. The network will contribute to gluing disparate researchers working across different areas and provide a meeting ground for researchers in these separate areas to exchange ideas, to identify synergies, and to pursue common activities in research topics such as sustainable software solutions (applications and system software stack), data management, energy efficiency, and resilience. Some of the most active research groups of the world in this area are members of this proposal. This Action will increase the value of these groups at the European-level by reducing duplication of efforts and providing a more holistic view to all researchers, it will promote the leadership of Europe, and it will increase their impact on science, economy, and society. Anne-Cécile Orgerie is co-responsible of the focus group on metrics, monitoring, instrumentation and profiling in the Working Group 5 on Energy Efficiency. A joint paper has been accepted in 2017 on this topic at the Elsevier journal on Sustainable Computing.

Collaborations with Major European Organizations

  • Partner 1: EPFL, Network architecture lab (Switzerland)

  • We collaborate with Katerina Argyraki's research group on the integration of networking and cloud computing technologies in order to support placement constraints between cloud resources.

  • Partner 2: University of Neuchâtel, dept. of Computer Science (Switzerland)

  • We collaborate with Pascal Felber's research group on energy efficiency in Clouds and in particular on the design of energy cost models for virtual machines. A joint journal paper has been accepted in 2017 for publication in Sustainable Computing: Informatics and Systems, Elsevier.

  • Partner 3: Catholic University of Louvain (Belgium)

  • We collaborate with Etienne Riviere's research group on the efficient service placement and discovery in a SaaS context.
