Leaderships, Steering Committees and community service

CNRS, GDR ARP.

L. Bougé chairs the CNRS Research Co-operative Federation (Groupement de recherche, GDR) on Architecture, Networks and Systems, and Parallelism (ARP, http://www.arp.cnrs.fr/). He has been serving since Year 2000. This GDR GDR is run by the STIC CNRS Department. It is one of the 6 nation-wide animation networks (GDR d'animation) run by the Department. It has been renewed for another 4-year term in 2002. Virtually all the French academic researchers active in these areas are registered in the GDR. As of today, this amounts to ca. 900 persons.
