Leslie Lamport, a researcher at the Inria-Microsoft Research joint laboratory, has been named as the winner of the Turing Award for 2013. The accolade is conferred by the Association for Computing Machinery and considered the "Nobel prize for computing."
Held over 4 days, the 42th annual edition will focus on parallel and distributed computing, a central topic in science, engineering and society.

This winter school will feature a series of talks by renowned researchers in hot topics in distributed computing, from both a theoretical and a practical perspective. Topics covered by the school typically include databases, multi-core computing, computer architecture, cryptography, social networks, software transactional memory, and replication-based fault-tolerance. This year, the scope of the school extends toward high performance computing and cloud computing platforms and algorithms.

The Centre INRIA Grenoble Rhône-Alpes organizes the 10th international conference on emerging issues in distributed computing (DisCoTec).
Place : Inria, Montbonnot
Euro-Par 2016, international conference dedicated to parallel and distributed computing, will take place in Grenoble, the french capital of the Alps, from August 24-26. It will be organized by Inria, Université Grenoble-Alpes and IUT 2 Grenoble.

DeFab developed a water-heater with integrated computing modules. The heat produced by those modules is used to heat the water. Specific job dispatching algorithms assure a regular heat supply for the water-heater. These algorithms have been developed jointly with the Inria team Avalon.
DIET is a middleware allowing plug-in development for job dispatching in data centres based on energy-related criteria. In case of energy consumption peaks, jobs can bemigrated dynamically to another node. DIET offers a multi-criteria and dynamic dispatching method that is extensible to large computing systems. DIET is integrated into the Nueva platform, in collaboration with NewGeneration-SR.
Fields of research
Frédéric Desprez is the Deputy Scientific Director in charge of the field "Networks, Systems, Services and Distributed Computing".
The Avalon research team, a joint team between Inria, CNRS, ENS de Lyon and the University Lyon1, in collaboration with the start-up Stimergy, is proposing a new distributed Cloud approach. This approach notably opens up prospects in the field of optimising the use of data centers with a reduction in their environmental footprint.
Olivier Temam, Research Director at Inria, was awarded a Best Paper Award at the ASPLOS Conference, held in Salt Lake City from 1 to 5 March 2014. The reason for this award was his research into IT accelerators, which are infinitely more effective than traditional processors. This work has opened up new possibilities in the field of machine-learning.
