We are involved in the following project:
ANR VERSO DataRing(2008-2011)
Participants : Reza Akbarinia, Fady Draidi, Manal El Dick, Mohamed Jawad, Philippe Lamarre, Esther Pacitti, Patrick Valduriez.
The project, headed by P. Valduriez, involves the Gemo project-team (INRIA Saclay Ïle de France), LIG, LIRMM and Telecom ParisTech. The objective is to address the problem of data sharing for online communities, such as social networks (e.g. sites like MySpace and Facebook) and professional communities (e.g. research communities, online technical support groups) which are becoming a major killer application of the web. The project addresses this problem by organizing community members in a peer-to-peer (P2P) network ring across distributed data source owners where each member can share data with the others through a P2P overlay network.
In this project, we study the following problems: query processing with data uncertainty, data indexing and caching, data privacy and trust. To validate our approach, we develop services in the context of the APPA prototype.
