Our research activities range from theoretical bounds to practical protocols and implementations for large-scale distributed dynamic systems. The target applications range from Internet-based applications to wireless autonomic networks. We focus our research on two main areas: resource management and dissemination. We believe that such services are basic building blocks of many distributed applications. We also examine these services in two networking contexts: Internet and wireless sensors. These two classes of applications, although exhibiting very different behaviors and constraints, clearly require scalable solutions.
To achieve this ambitious goal, we tackle the issues both along the theoretical and practical sides of scalable distributed computing and ASAP is organized along the following themes:
