Creation of the KerData Team.

The KerData Team was created on July 1st, 2009. We are strongly committed to engage in becoming a Project-Team in 2010.

Strong collaboration with the “Politehnica” University of Bucharest.

We have strengthened our collaboration with the Distributed Systems and Grids Group of the Computer Science and Engineering Department ( ) of the Politehnica University of Bucharest (PUB). Three of our current PhD students originate from this department. In 2009, we hosted one PhD student (one month) and one Master student (5 months) from PUB, who contributed to a bilateral project under way. An Associate Team Abroad proposal has been accepted in Autumn 2009 in partnership with the Myriads Project-Team.
