Grenoble INP is a highly selective technological university. Energumen will be conducted by LIG federating researchers from the community of universities which gather UGA (University Grenoble-Alpes), Grenoble INP, CNRS and Inria.
In short, the scientific project of the LIG deals with ambient and sustainable IT. The goal is to leverage the complementary nature and quality of the 24 research teams of the LIG to contribute to fundamental aspects of the discipline and to create a synergy between the conceptual, technological and societal challenges that surround these topics. 8 of these 24 teams are associated with Inria, including Datamove which is involved in this project. The Datamove team has a permanent staff of 8 permanent researchers, one postdoc, 6 full-time Ph.D students and 2 engineers. The originality of the Datamove approach is to use the application's adaptability to enable its control by scheduling. The critical points concern designing adaptive malleable algorithms and coupling the various components of the application to reach interactivity with performance guarantees. Besides a strong publication activity, Datamove participates in various National and European projects.
The main research activities of the group with respect to Energumen include the design of low cost algorithms for batch scheduling with worst case guarantees, as well as, multi-objective analysis for both energy and performance optimization. It also rely on the softwares developed for years by the Datamove researchers, including Batsim and OAR.
IRIT (Toulouse Institute of Computer Science Research) is one of the biggest lab. in computer science in France. The SEPIA team is centered on the efficient conception and usage of distributed operating systems, for clusters, grids and clouds, and is managing the Grid5000 node in Toulouse. SEPIA developed a strong expertise in energy consumption, management and reduction. SEPIA participated in EU CoolEmAll project (2011-2014, on middleware and cooling data centers), ANR SOP project (2011-2015), EU COST Action IC804 and IC1305 on “Sustainable Ultrascale Computing” (2014-2018).
The LIP6, Sorbonne Université and CNRS, is a computer science research laboratory dedicated to the modeling and the resolution of fundamental problems driven by applications, as well as to the implementation and the validation through academic and industrial partnerships. The main themes of LIP6 are: Safety, security and reliability ; Data science, intelligence and optimization ; Smart devices. The Operations Research group of LIP6 has a permanent staff of 14 researchers and 6 PhD students. The research activities of the group are mainly focused on scheduling and graph problems. The global approach of the group when facing an optimization problem consists in developing a mathematical model, searching for its combinatorial complexity, finding good properties of its optimal solutions and deriving an exact or approximation algorithm. The team has been recognized for its results in scheduling with communication delays. The current work of the group is focused on just in time scheduling problems and other more specific scheduling models such as non-idling scheduling, or energy minimization.
The main research activities within projname include the design and analysis of algorithms for scheduling problems, as well as the study of energy optimization mechanisms and data movements.
The University of Luxembourg (UL) brings the expertise of the Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT). In the Times Higher Education ranking of 2015, UL has been ranked 14 out of 150 young universities (less than 50 years old) created world-wide and number 193 of all universities. The University of Luxembourg (UL) launched the SnT in 2009 to achieve high impact and excellence well beyond the academic community by collaborating with external partners such as industry, government bodies, institutions, and international actors.
The Technical University of Munich (TUM) is one of Europe’s top universities. It is committed to excellence in research and teaching, interdisciplinary education and the active promotion of promising young scientists. The university also forges strong links with companies and scientific institutions across the world. TUM was one of the first universities in Germany to be named a University of Excellence. Moreover, TUM regularly ranks among the best European universities in international rankings.
