  • The Inria's Research Teams produce an annual Activity Report presenting their activities and their results of the year. These reports include the team members, the scientific program, the software developed by the team and the new results of the year. The report also describes the grants, contracts and the activities of dissemination and teaching. Finally, the report gives the list of publications of the year.

European Initiatives

FP7 & H2020 Projects

  • BEHAPI (Behavioural Application Program Interfaces) is an European Project H2020-MSCA-RISE-2017, running in the period March 2018 - February 2022. The topic of the project is behavioural types, as a suite of technologies that formalise the intended usage of API interfaces. Indeed, currently APIs are typically flat structures, i.e. sets of service/method signatures specifying the expected service parameters and the kind of results one should expect in return. However, correct API usage also requires the individual services to be invoked in a specific order. Despite its importance, the latter information is either often omitted, or stated informally via textual descriptions. The expected benefits of behavioural types include guarantees such as service compliance, deadlock freedom, dynamic adaptation in the presence of failure, load balancing etc. The proposed project aims to bring the existing prototype tools based on these technologies to mainstream programming languages and development frameworks used in industry.

Collaborations in European Programs, Except FP7 & H2020

  • ICT COST Action IC1405 (Reversible computation - extending horizons of computing). Initiated at the end of April 2015 and with a 4-year duration, this COST Action studies reversible computation and its potential applications, which include circuits, low-power computing, simulation, biological modeling, reliability and debugging. Reversible computation is an emerging paradigm that extends the standard forwards-only mode of computation with the ability to execute in reverse, so that computation can run backwards as naturally as it can go forwards.

    Main persons involved: Lanese (vice-chair of the action).

  • ICT COST Action IC1402 ARVI (Runtime Verification beyond Monitoring). Initiated in December 2014 and with a 4-year duration, this COST Action studies runtime verification, a computing analysis paradigm based on observing a system at runtime to check its expected behaviour.

    Main persons involved: Bravetti, Lanese.
