Located in Grenoble, the University Joseph Fourier (UJF) is a university of science, technology and health. Within more than 50 laboratories, UJF develop research excellence in partnership with national research organizations and major international instruments.
LIG (Laboratoire d'Informatique de Grenoble, Grenoble computer science laboratory) is composed of nearly 500 researchers, teachers, PhD students and staff in support of research. The LIG scientific project GIL is "l’Informatique ambiante et durable". The ambition is to rely on the complementarity and the recognized quality of the 23 research teams from LIG to contribute to the development of the fundamental aspects of the discipline (models, languages, methods, algorithms) and to develop synergy between the conceptual challenges technological and societal associated with this topic.
ERODS (http://erods.imag.fr/) and SARDES (http://sardes.inrialpes.fr/) teams, which belong to LIG, are involved in the project Ctrl-Green. Their goal in this project is to study the design and the management of Green and Cloud Computing infrastructures.
