SuperComputing 2017 : Inria will attend the international conference on Super Computing

Through its start-ups and project teams specialising in High Performance Computing (HPC), Inria will be participating from 12 to 17 November 2017 in the annual international conference on SuperComputing to be held in Denver, Colorado.

As it has done every year for 23 years, Inria is participating in the SuperComputing exhibition that will be held this year in the American city of Denver. Highly active in the field of High Performance Computing (HPC), Big Data, simulation, and networks, Inria will be presenting on its stand the activities of its teams and partners on this occasion.

Among the Inria activities and projects in high performance computing, the following will be in pride of place: 

  • Batsim, developed within the Datamove project team : "A realistic language-independent resources and jobs management systems simulator".
  • DIET , developed within the Avalon project team: "A middleware for HPC and Cloud resources management allowing you to build your own PaaS". 
  • GreenFactory, developed within the Avalon project team: "Reduce energy consumption of large scale systems with realistic multi-level shutdown policies".
  • The work of the Myriads project team on energy consumption issues: "Modeling and simulating the energy consumption of HPC infrastructures for computing and networking resources".
  • The JLESC (Joint Laboratory for Extreme-Scale Computing).
  • Simgrid , developed within the AvalonMyriads and Polaris project teams : "Generic framework for large-scale distributed experiments".

Additionally, two Inria researchers, Issam Raïs and Laurent Lefèvre will be present on the PRACE stand (#2171) at noon on Thursday 16 November for a presentation of their work entitled Large scale shutdown policies for HPC systems : the ELCI solution.

Inria is also heavily involved in the formation of businesses spun out of public research. Among the more than 140 start-ups established over more than thirty years, some have taken advantage of technologies or skills developed within the institute and two of them will be present on the Inria stand:

  • iExec, a spin-off from the Avalon project team, offers a fully decentralised Cloud solution based on blockchain technology. The company is developing a marketplace without a trusted intermediary, enabling suppliers of IT resources to directly monetise their servers, applications, or datasets directly on the blockchain.
  • Xtremlogic, a start-up whose goal is the acceleration of computer speeds, has signed a collaboration agreement with Inria and ENS Lyon to use the algorithms developed by their joint teams, Compsys and Aric.

You will be able to ask the researchers any questions about their technologies on the Inria stand (#2043) from 13 to 16 November and discuss future collaboration with teams geared to partnership research.
