Section: Overall Objectives
The research of the Delys team addresses the theory and practice of distributed systems, including multicore computers, clusters, networks, peer-to-peer systems, cloud and fog computing systems, and other communicating entities such as swarms of robots. It addresses the challenges of correctly communicating, sharing information, and computing in such large-scale, highly dynamic computer systems. This includes addressing the core problems of communication, consensus and fault detection, scalability, replication and consistency of shared data, information sharing in collaborative groups, dynamic content distribution, and multi- and many-core concurrent algorithms.
Delys is a joint research team between LIP6 (UPMC/CNRS) and Inria Paris.
