National actions


Participants : Pascal Fradet [ contact person ] , Marnes Hoff.

The AutoCHEM project aims at investigating and exploring the use of chemical languages (see Section  6.7.1 ) to program complex computing infrastructures such as Grids and real-time deeply-embedded systems. The consortium includes Irisa ( Paris project team, Rennes), Inria -Rhône-Alpes (Pop Art project team, Montbonnot), IBISC ( CNRS /Université d'Evry) and CEA List (Saclay). The project has started at the end of 2007.

ANR Arpège ASOPT : Analyse Statique et OPTimisation

Participants : Bertrand Jeannet, Lies Lakhdar-Chaouch.

The ASOPT (Analyse Statique et OPTimisation) project [end of 2008-2011] brings together static analysis (INRIA-POP ART, VERIMAG, CEA LMeASI), optimisation, and control/game theory experts (CEA LMeASI, INRIA-MAXPLUS) around some program verification problems.

Many abstract interpretations attempt to find "good" geometric shapes verifying certain constraints; this not only applies to purely numerical abstractions (for numerical program variables), but also to abstractions of data structures (arrays and more complex shapes). This problem can often be addressed by optimisation techniques, opening the possibility of exploiting advanced techniques from mathematical programming.

The purpose of ASOPT is to develop new abstract domains and new resolution techniques for embedded control programs, and in the longer run, for numerical simulation programs.

POP ART is the coordinator of the project.

Action INRIA d'envergure nationale “Synchronics”

Participants : Alain Girault, Bertrand Jeannet.

The Synchronics (Language Platform for Embedded System Design) project [beginning of 2008-2011] gathers 9 permanent researchers on the topic of embedded systems design: B. Caillaud (IRISA), A. Cohen, L. Mandel, & M. Pouzet (INRIA-Saclay), A. Girault & B. Jeannet (INRIA-Grenoble – Rhône-Alpes), E. Jahier & P. Raymond (VERIMAG).

Synchronics capitalizes on recent extensions of data-flow synchronous languages, as well as relaxed forms of synchronous composition or compilation techniques for various platform, to address two main challenges with a language-centered approach: (i) the co-simulation of mixed discrete-continuous specifications, and more generally the co-simulation of programs and properties (either discrete or continuous); (ii) the ability, inside the programming model, to account for the architecture constraints (execution time, memory footprint, energy, power, reliability, etc.).
