Supercomputing and grid computing days at Lille

The first edition of the supercomputing and grid computing days at Lille will be held at Université de Lille1 and INRIA Lille - Nord Europe on December 2, 3 and 7, 2009. Half of the event is dedicated to the Grid5000 nation-wide grid infrastructure. A series of presentations including feedbacks on the use of Grid5000 is scheduled together with a one day practical training on it. The detailed program is available at: ---

Research in Grids - Production Grids workshop held October 13th, 2009

L’Institut des Grilles (IdG) et l’action Aladdin INRIA lancent un appel commun à propositions pour dynamiser les recherches à l’interface entre la recherche sur les grilles, les grilles de recherche, et les grilles de production.

Le colloque présentera les questions ouvertes aux interfaces et les projets proposés dans le cadre de cet appel, afin de favoriser la création de nouveaux réseaux. Le but de la journée est de faire émerger des synergies. La présentation de travaux en cours est donc vivement encouragée. Plus d’informations.


Grid'5000 Tutorial at CLCAR 2009 in Venezuela

Yiannis Georgiou will present a Grid5000 tutorial at the 2nd edition of Latin American Conference on High Performance Computing (CLCAR) held in Merida, Venezuela (21-25 September 2009).

Best Student Demo Award given to Grid'5000 users at Sigmetrics/Performance 2009 at Seattle

This award was given to Patrick Loiseau, Romaric Guillier, Oana Goga, Matthieu Imbert, Paulo Goncalves, Pascale Vicat-Blanc Primet (INRIA, ENS-Lyon, University of Lyon, France) for their demo Automated Traffic Measurements and Analysis in Grid'5000 demo at the demo session

Grid'5000 under extension to Porto Alegre, Brazil

July 21st, 2009, INRIA and UFRGS signed a Memorandum of Understanding marking the cooperation of the two institutes towards the extension of the Grid'5000 platform to Brazil.

According to the terms of this memo, UFRGS will contribute to Grid'5000 by operating a local site in Porto Alegre and INRIA will fully integrate this local site into Grid'5000 in order to gain an international scale. Researchers from both partners will therefore gain access to one of the major scientific instruments for the study of large-scale parallel and distributed problems in computer science. With this cooperation, Grid'5000 gives its users the possibility to study the effects of inter-continental networks links on these problems.

For Grid'5000 users, access to the new site during the integration phase is possible using portoalegre.grenoble as name of the new site

Grid'5000 showcased during the Open Days of Bell Labs France

June 2nd, 2009, MEtroflux/NXE tools where shown using Grid'5000 during a week during the Open Days of Bell Labs France, demonstrating the potential of Grid'5000 as a research instrument.


Second Grid'5000 award given to Lucas Nussbaum

During Grid'5000 Spring School 2009, Lucas Nussbaum was given the second Grid'5000 award, in recognition of his outstanding contribution to ALADDIN / Grid'5000.
