Bilateral Contracts with Industry

Nokia Bell Labs

AVALON has been actively collaborating with Nokia, formerly Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs, in the framework of the Nokia/Alcatel-Lucent Inria Joint Laboratory. We was involved in the following Research Actions (Actions de Recherche (ADR) in French) of this laboratory. ADR Nokia Bell Labs /Inria: Procedural Generation of Networks for Security Research & Experimentations. The objective of this project is to address such challenge. We aim at devising a new way where researchers can communicate in a comprehensive and accurate way the experimentation set-up used in their work. The main objective would be to research and develop the procedural generation of credible network topologies and test beds resembling real operational infrastructures of various kinds (e.g. classical ICT, virtualized Cloud or SDN based, SCADA infrastructures etc.), as a method of creating data algorithmically as opposed to manually. This work is done with a postdoc position: Cyril Seguin.

MUMPS Technologies

AVALON has a collaboration with MUMPS Technologies. The funding is dedicated for Marie Durand during few months to make experimental validation of the interest of using XKBLAS library to let MUMPS software to gain in performance on multi-GPUs server.
