Invited Professors
Mario Rivero

(Professor, Instituto Politécnico Nacional, Mexico) was an invited professor in the KerData team from June to July 2019, through the Scientist Invitation Program of IRISA and ISTIC. During his stay, he gave several talks at Inria/IRISA and worked on the modeling Smart City applications, laying the path for the work program of the upcoming internships of José Aguilar-Canepa and Edgar Romo.

Jose Aguilar-Canepa

(PhD student, Instituto Politécnico Nacional, Mexico) has done a 3-month internship within the team, working with Alexandru Costan and Pedro Silva on hybrid Edge/Cloud stream processing. This work is validated through large scale experiments on Grid’5000 and is subject to a journal paper in submission, currently on the works, to be submitted by January 2020.

Edgar Romo

(PhD student, Instituto Politécnico Nacional, Mexico) did a 3-month internship at KerData from September to November 2019. He worked on Objective 2 of the SmartFastData Associate Team, specifically on designing a complex model for predicting the stream arrival rates for vehicular networks in Smart Cities. To validate this proposal, he carried out several experiments on Grid’5000; this work is currently the topic of a workshop paper submission.

Visits to International Teams

Alexandru Costan and Gabriel Antoniu

visited the NDS-Lab team at Instituto Politécnico Nacional from October 24 to November 3, 2019, in the context of the SmartFastData associate team. Working closely with Rolando Menchaca, they defined the work program for the upcoming year with respect to the team's objectives. They also presented KerData’s vision on future hybrid analytics combining Edge, Cloud and HPC computing.
