I have given a talk the 2021-01-27 to the researchers of the Inria Spirals research group in Lille. More details in “talks”!
Title: Toward Safe and Efficient Reconfiguration with Concerto Abstract: For large-scale distributed systems that need to adapt to a changing environment, conducting a reconfiguration is a challenging task. In particular, efficient reconfigurations require the coordination of multiple tasks with complex dependencies. We present Concerto, a model used to manage the lifecycle of software components and coordinate their reconfiguration operations. Concerto promotes efficiency with a fine-grained representation of dependencies and parallel execution of reconfiguration actions, both within components and between them.
The SeMaFoR (Self Management of Fog Resources) project has been accepted by the French national research agency (ANR) and will start in march 2021 for four years. The project is led by Thomas Ledoux. I am the leader of the work package on decentralized reconfiguration.
Since the first of September 2020, I am 20% adjunct professor at the University of Tromsø in Norway for two years. My missions is to work on the DAO project leaded by Otto Anshus. I will bring my expertise in automatic and dynamic adaptations and reconfigurations of distribuetd software systems.
