The ROC team was awarded two new research grants from the National Research Agency (ANR):
- HEIDIS (HiErarchIcal DIsaggregated Scheduling for beyond-5G networks): the project will work on novel hierarchical scheduling algorithms and smart network cards making surface in virtualized radio access networks (vRANs), and their integration in the Open RAN architecture. Two use-cases are explored: smart-grid infrastructure communications and resource sharing among multiple providers. The project involves Cnam, EDF, Orange, SMILE, and Univ. Paris-Saclay. The Cnam scientific responsibile is Stefano Secci
- PARFAIT (Planification et apprentissage pour AI-Edge Computing): the project will work toward the definition of novel algorithms and architecture in support of distributed learning for edge computing infrastructures. Particular attention is devoted to crowdsourcing and video distribution use-cases. The partners are Cnam, Inria, Univ. of Avignon, and Univ. Mont Blanc. The Cnam scientific responsible is Françoise Sailhan.
The projects will start next winter and will run for 3 years.
