International initiatives

INRIA Associate Team DAWN - Distributed Algorithms for Wireless Networks (2008-2011)

Participants : Sara Alouf, Eitan Altman, Konstantin Avrachenkov, Amar Azad.

Maestro has privileged collaborations with the Indian Institute of Science at Bangalore, the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research at Mumbai, and the University of Pennsylvania, through the Inria Associate Team “Dawn ” (an Inria program). Dawn stands for “Distributed Algorithms for Wireless Networks”. It was launched on Jan. 1st, 2008.

Dawn involves three Inria project-teams teams (Maestro , the coordinator, Mescal and Trec ) and three foreign teams. The main foreign team is the IISc (Bangalore, India) with Prof. A. Kumar (coordinator), Prof. R. Sundaresan, Prof. V. Sharma and Prof. A Chokalingam. Two other foreign teams are TIFR Mumbay with Prof. V. Borkar and the University of Pennsylvania with Prof. S. Sarkar.

Dawn focuses on “Emerging Strategies for Wireless Communication Networks”. More specifically, the project objectives are to model, analyze, optimize and invent protocols for both cellular as well as ad hoc wireless network.

Dawn was created in the perspective of creating a joint laboratory between Inria and IISc at Bangalore (see "Inedit" magazine No. 63. Bangalore: Managing connections on wireless networks). .

Australian Research Council Discovery Grant (2007-2009)

Participant : Konstantin Avrachenkov.

This is a bilateral collaboration between Maestro team and the School of Mathematics and Statistics of the University of South Australia. The topic of this collaboration is the development of new perturbation methods for solving singular operator equations with applications to Statistics and Complex System Analysis. K. Avrachenkov is the coordinator of this project.
