Teaching Activities

Martin Quinson is teaching the following modules at ÉSIAL (University Henri Poincaré - Nancy 1): “C and Shell ”, “Technics and tools for programming ” (1A) and “Networks and Systems ” (2A). He also participates to the following modules: “Object oriented programming ” (1A), “Parallel and Distributed Algorithms ” (3A) and “Grid and advanced distributed algorithms ” at University Henri Poincaré - Nancy 1. He is also responsible of the specialization “Distributed Systems and Applications ” of ÉSIAL.

Editorial Activities

Since October 2001, Jens Gustedt is Editor-in-Chief of the journal Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science (DMTCS ). DMTCS is a journal that is published electronically by an independent association under French law. Based on a contract with INRIA , its main web-server is located at the LORIA . DMTCS has acquired a good visibility within the concerned domains of Computer Science and Mathematics, which is confirmed by a relatively high impact factor.

In 2009, Jens Gustedt has served as program committee member of the 18th Euromicro International Conference on Parallel, Distributed and network-based Processing PDP 2010 and of the Fifteenth International Conference on Parallel and Distributed Systems (ICPADS'09 ).

Martin Quinson was member of the program committee of the Second International Conference on Simulation Tools and Techniques for Communications, Networks and Systems (SimuTools'09).

Emmanuel Jeannot was program topic chair of Euro-Par 2009 Euro-Par 2009 and Challenges of Large Applications in Distributed Environments (CLADE) 2009 CLADE 2009 . He also was member of the program committee of the High Performance Distributed Computing conference HPDC 2009 , Heteropar Heteropar , the International Conference on Parallel Computing ParCo , the 11th IEEE International Conference on High Performance Computing and Communications HPCC , dixième conférence de la Société Française de Recherche Opérationnelle et d'Aide à la Décision Roadef 2009 , the second International Conference on Computer Science and its Applications CSA 2009 , the Eighth international conference on parallel processing and applied mathematics PPAM 2009 , and of RenPar 2009 Renpar 2009 .

Stéphane Genaud was member of the program committee of the second International Symposium on Grid and Distributed Computing GDC 2009 .

Stéphane Vialle was one of the two Program Chairs of the 2nd International Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Computing in Finance (PDCoF'2009 ). Stéphane Vialle was also member of the program committee of the international conference on Architecture of Computing Systems (ARCS 2010 ), and of the nineteenth RenPar conference ("Rencontres francophones du Parallélisme") (Renpar 2009 ).

Sylvain Contassot-Vivier has been invited in the editorial board of the seventh international conference on Engineering Computational Technology (ECT2010 ) as well as in the organizing committee of the 16th Intl. workshop on cellular automata (AUTOMATA'2010 ).

Lucas Nussbaum was member of the organization and program committee for the Grid'5000 Spring School 2009 .


In 2009, members of the team served as referees for the following journals and conferences:


Future Generation Computer Systems, IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks, Journal of Grid Computing, Journal of SuperComputing, Journal of Parallel and Distributed Computing, Parallel Computing, Software: Practice and Experience, Technique et Science Informatiques
