, the French Institute for research in computer science and control, is the only French public institute entirely dedicated to research in information and communication science and technology (ICST). Throughout its 8 research centres, INRIA has a workforce of 3,800 (2,800 of whom are scientists from INRIA and its partner organizations). INRIA has an annual budget of 186 million Euros, 20% of which comes from its own research contracts and development products. As its strategy closely combines scientific excellence with technology transfer, it develops collaborations with the economic world through strategic industrial partners and the creation of more than 90 companies since 1984. INRIA is a partner in more than 120 FP6 projects (90 in the IST priority) and 50 FP7 projects in the ICT Cooperation programme.
Researchers of theproject-team at INRIA Paris-Rocquencourt will contribute to CHOReOS, bringing expertise in the area of software architecture and middleware for pervasive computing/ambient intelligence systems. Relevant research results for CHOReOS include service-oriented middleware for pervasive computing that allows rigorous description of pervasive services, while enabling efficient location and composition of semantic services. Members of ARLES have contributed to a number of European and industrial research projects investigating new system and middleware architectures for emerging networking technologies, among which flagship European projects OZONE and AMIGO on system infrastructures for ambient intelligence, FP6 PLASTIC project on services engineering for pervasive networks, and FP7 FET CONNECT project on next generation middleware architectures.
INRIA ARLES will leverage its expertise on service-oriented architectures and middleware for pervasive computing, further making evolve the paradigm towards service-oriented computing in the Future Internet embedding the Internet of Things. INRIA ARLES will in particular contribute to the development, from design to prototype implementation, of the service-oriented middleware solution targeted at the Internet of Things. INRIA will further contribute its knowledge on software architecture and dynamic adaptation, contributing to and leading the WP on the elicitation of the CHOReOS architectural style for ultra-large-scale choreography-centric systems and studying middleware solutions to the dynamic adaptation of choreographies.
CHOReOS is a project of the FP7 European program: FP7-ICT-2009-5 - Objective 1.2 (grant agremment n° 257178)
