Section: Other Grants and Activities
We are the leader of the COST (European Cooperation in the field of Scientific and Technical Research) Action IC0805 called ComplexHPC ComplexHPC . The goal of the Action is to establish a European research network focused on high performance heterogeneous computing in order to address the whole range of challenges posed by these new platforms including models, algorithms, programming tools and applications.
Energy efficiency in large scale distributed systems
We participate to the COST (European Cooperation in the field of Scientific and Technical Research) Action IC0804 Energy efficiency in large scale distributed systems , started this year. We plan several contributions to this project. First, we want to integrate into the SimG rid tool the energy models developed in the work package 2 of this project to allow the use of our simulator during the evaluation of algorithms aimed by the work package 3. Second, in the work package 2 we want to design energy models compatibles with our experiments on the CPU+GPU clusters of SUPÉLEC, and in the work package 3 we aim to use these models and our various experiments to design parallel algorithms for CPU+GPU clusters, that will be optimized both in speed and in energy consumption (tracking a right compromise).
We maintain several European collaborations with other research teams. We work with Vandy Berten and Joël Goossens of the Université Libre de Bruxelles on scheduling problems under stochastic models. We work with the team led by Thomas Rauber (University of Bayreuth, Germany) on parallel task graph scheduling.
