Company name: CNRS/LIG
The Laboratory of Informatics of Grenoble (LIG) is a research unit whose funding partners are CNRS, INRIA, Grenoble INP, UJF and UPMF. It was created on January 1, 2007. It gathers 500 researchers, lecturers-researchers, students and postdocs, technical and administrative staff members. Research activities are structured around 24 autonomous research groups.
The SARDES group is a research team hosted at INRIA Rhône-Alpes, and is a joint team with LIG and INRIA. The overall goal of the SARDES group is to investigate the construction of distributed software infrastructures (operating system and middleware) to support global computing. Global computing is concerned with a projected environment in which processors will be everywhere and will be interconnected by a diverse array of networks, from ad-hoc pico networks to the global Internet. In this large scale, open, highly heterogeneous and highly dynamic context, the SARDES project-team aims to develop dependable and highly adaptable software infrastructures, by systematically leveraging component-based and reflective programming techniques.
