Ongoing academic collaborations

  • THANES (March 2014 - December 2016)

    Thanes (THeory and Application of NEtwork Science) is a joint Brazilian-French research team financially supported for 3 years by Inria and FAPERJ (the Research Support Foundation of the State of Rio de Janeiro). The team investigates network science problems with a particular focus on Online Social Networks. The team members include 6 members from Maestro, 4 from Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro and 1 from Carnegie Mellon University.

  • ANR MARMOTE (January 2013 - December 2016)

    MAESTRO is partner of the ANR project MARMOTE: MARkovian MOdeling Tools and Environments. The MARMOTE project aims at realizing the prototype of a software environment dedicated to modeling with Markov chains. It brings together seven partner teams, expert in markovian analysis, who will develop advanced solution algorithms and applications in different scientific domains: reliability, distributed systems, biology, physics and economics. The participants are: University of Versailles Saint-Quentin (PRiSM), Telecom SudParis (SAMOVAR), University Paris-Est Créteil Val de Marne (LACL), University Pierre and Marie Curie (LIP6) and Inria (Project-Teams Diogen, Maestro, Mescal).

  • CONGAS (October 2012 - September 2015)

    MAESTRO is a member of the FP7 STREP european project CONGAS (Dynamics and COevolution in Multi Level Strategic iNteraction GAmeS). The project management of CONGAS is performed by CREATE-NET and the scientific coordination of CONGAS is performed by Inria (MAESTRO). The participants are Université D'Avignon et des Pays de Vaucluse (UAPV, France), Technische Universiteit Delft (TUDelft, The Netherlands), Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine (United Kingdom), Universityá di Pisa (UNIPI, Italy) and Technion - Israel Institute of Techonology (Israel). CONGAS will develop new mathematical models and tools, rooted in game theory, for the analysis, prediction and control of dynamical processes in complex systems. It will provide a coherent theoretical framework for understanding the emergence of structure and patterns in these systems, accounting for interactions spanning various scales in time and space, and acting at different structural and aggregation levels.

  • GANESH (January 2012 - December 2014)

    MAESTRO has privileged collaborations with the Indian Institute of Science at Bangalore and the Indian Institutes of Technology at Mumbai and Madras, through an associated team called GANESH (GAmes, OptimizatioN and Analysis of NEtworkS: THeory and Applications).

Past academic collaborations

  • ANR SYSCOM Modecol (2009-2012)

    MAESTRO is partner of the ANR SYSCOM Modecol project, titled "Using modeling to improve the ecological services of prairial ecosystems". The participants are: UMR Ecobio (CNRS/Univ. Rennes 1, project coordinator), University of Houston (USA), University of La Rochelle, INRIA (Project-Teams Maestro, Mere, Tosca, P. Del Moral), University of Berkeley (USA).

  • DAWN

    MAESTRO has privileged collaborations with the Indian Institute of Science at Bangalore, the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research at Mumbai, and the University of Pennsylvania, through an associated team called DAWN (Distributed Algorithms for Wireless Networks).

  • ECODE (September 2008 - August 2011)

    MAESTRO is a member of the IST STREP europeean project "ECODE" (Experimental cognitive distributed engine). This 3-year project (to be launched in September 2008) is coordinated by A-LBell (Anvers) and envolves UCL, ULg, IBBT, INRIA (MAESTRO and PLANETE), ULANC, and CNRS.

  • EuroNF (2008-2010)

    MAESTRO is a partner of the Network of Excellence (NoE) EuroNF on Anticipating the Network of the Future - From Theory to Design.

  • ECO-NET program

    MAESTRO and its partners, the University of Saint Petersburg and the University of Erevan, are working on "Game Theory for Wireless Networks".

  • CEFIPRA program

    MAESTRO and the IISc, Bangalore, are working on "Emerging Strategies forWireless Communication Networks".

  • BIONETS (January 2006 - February 2010)

    MAESTRO is a member of the IST FET Europeean project BIONETS (Integrated Project BIOlogically-inspired autonomic NETworks and Services).
    The motivation for BIONETS comes from emerging trends towards pervasive computing and communication environments, where myriads of networked devices with very different features will enhance our five senses, our communication and tool manipulation capabilities. The complexity of such environments will not be far from that of biological organisms, ecosystems, and socio-economic communities. Traditional communication approaches are ineffective in this context, since they fail to address several new features: a huge number of nodes including low-cost sensing/identifying devices, a wide heterogeneity in node capabilities, high node mobility, the management complexity, the possibility of exploiting spare node resources. BIONETS aims at a novel approach able to address these challenges.

    See here the list of our partners.
