- Ulm University, Germany.
Michaël Schöttner, Junior Professor at the University of Ulm, Germany, was invited by the Paris Project-Team in January 2003 and presented the Plurix Project at the Irisa Network and System Seminar.
- Rutgers University, USA.
Liviu Iftode, Associate-Professor at Rutgers university and Head of the Discolab Laboratory, visited us in November 2003 to discuss about further cooperation about self-healing cluster operating systems and to work on a joint proposal on this subject to be submitted to the NSF/Inria bi-lateral program.
- Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), USA.
Stephen Scott is a Senior Researcher at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. He was invited by the Paris project in October 2003. The goal of his visit was to discuss about a collaboration between Inria, Edf R&D and ORNL for the integration of Kerrighed into OSCAR ( http://oscar.openclustergroup.org/), a distribution for high performance computing on clusters. Kerrighed would be integrated as a new package, SSI-OSCAR. Stephen Scott also presented the activities of his research group and OSCAR distribution at the Irisa Network and System Seminar.
- Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Portugal.
Paulo Afonso Lopes is a PhD student under the supervision of Prof. Dr. José C. Cunha, in the Distributed System Group of the Computer Science Department of the Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Portugal. He visited the Paris Project-Team for 3 days in November 2003. The goal of his visit was to discuss about high performance I/O in clusters with Gaël Utard and persons involved in the design and implementation of Kerrighed. Paulo Lopes intends to use the Kerrighed software in the high-performance I/O system prototype he will develop during his thesis.
