Inria International Labs

JLESC — Joint Laboratory on Extreme Scale Computing

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Inria, the French national computer science institute, Argonne National Laboratory, Barcelona Supercomputing Center, Jülich Supercomputing Centre and the Riken Advanced Institute for Computational Science formed the Joint Laboratory on Extreme Scale Computing, a follow-up of the Inria-Illinois Joint Laboratory for Petascale Computing. The Joint Laboratory is based at Illinois and includes researchers from Inria, and the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, ANL, BSC and JSC. It focuses on software challenges found in extreme scale high-performance computers.

Research areas include:

Several members of the ROMA team are involved in the JLESC joint lab through their research on scheduling and resilience. Yves Robert is the Inria executive director of JLESC.

Cooperation with ECNU

ENS Lyon has launched a partnership with ECNU, the East China Normal University in Shanghai, China. This partnership includes both teaching and research cooperation.

As for teaching, the PROSFER program includes a joint Master of Computer Science between ENS Rennes, ENS Lyon and ECNU. In addition, PhD students from ECNU are selected to conduct a PhD in one of these ENS. Yves Robert is responsible for this cooperation. He has already given four classes at ECNU, on Algorithm Design and Complexity, and on Parallel Algorithms, together with Patrice Quinton (from ENS Rennes).

As for research, the JORISS program funds collaborative research projects between ENS Lyon and ECNU. Anne Benoit and Mingsong Chen have lead a JORISS project on scheduling and resilience in cloud computing. Frédéric Vivien and Jing Liu (ECNU) are leading a JORISS project on resilience for real-time applications. In the context of this collaboration two students from ECNU, Li Han and Changjiang Gou, have joined Roma for their PhD.
