Inria Associate Teams Not Involved in an Inria International Labs

Pierre-Louis Curien and Claudia Faggian are members of the CRECOGI associate team, coordinated on one side by Ugo dal Lago (research-team FoCUS, Inria Sophia and Bologna), and on the other side by Ichiro Hasuo (NII, Tokyo). The full name of the project is Concurrent, Resourceful and full Computation, by Geometry of Interaction. This project was renewed in 2019 for a duration of two years.

Presentation of CRECOGI: Game semantics and geometry of interaction (GoI) are two closely related frameworks whose strengh is to have the characters of both a denotational and an operational semantics. They offer a high-level, mathematical (denotational) interpretation, but are interactive in nature. The formalisation in terms of movements of tokens through which programs communicate with each other can actually be seen as a low-level program. The current limit of GoI is that the vast majority of the literature and of the software tools designed around it have a pure, sequential functional language as their source language. This project aims at investigating the application of GoI to concurrent, resourceful, and effectful computation, thus paving the way to the deployment of GoI-based correct-by-construction compilers in real-world software developments in fields like (massively parallel) high-performance computing, embedded and cyberphysical systems, and big data. The presence of both the Japanese GoI community (whose skills are centered around effects and coalgebras) and the French GoI community (more focused on linear logic and complexity analysis) bring essential, complementary, ingredients.

International Initiatives

Pierre-Louis Curien is principal investigator on the French side for a joint project Inria - Chinese Academy of Sciences. The project's title is “Verification, Interaction, and Proofs” (December 2017 – December 2020). The principal investigator on the Chinese side is Ying Jiang, from the Institute of Software (ISCAS) in Beijing. The participants of the project on the French side are Pierre-Louis Curien and Jean-Jacques Lévy, as well as other members of IRIF (Thomas Ehrhard, Jean Krivine, Giovanni Bernardi, Ahmed Bouajjani, Mihaela Sighireanu, Constantin Enea, Gustavo Petri), and Gilles Dowek (Deducteam team of Inria Saclay). On the Chinese side, the participants are Ying Jiang, as well as other members of the ISCAS (Angsheng Li, Xinxin Liu, Yi Lü, Peng Wu, Yan Rongjie, Zhilin Wu, and Wenhui Zhang), and Yuxi Fu (from Shanghai Jiaotong University).
