Development framework using message passing for the CELL processor
The OMTE CELL-MPI is a project bringing together CNRS and Université Paris-Sud 11.
CELL-MPI is a group of C++ libraries for the CELL processor. It features an intuitive interface which facilitates and speeds up programming of the CELL by proposing a list of routines, i.e. portions of code commonly used in C++ language. It can be used in all sectors linked to high-performance computing for applications such as image processing and signal processing, for example. It also encourages the rapid porting of existing parallel applications.

Disconnect tolerant ad hoc routing middleware
A MANET network is an ad hoc wireless network defined by mobile nodes and which has a routing function. This type of network is subject to random disconnection and reconnection.
Université Paris-Sud 11, CNRS (French National Centre for Scientific Research) and INRIA (French National Institute for Research in Computer Science and Control) are working together to develop GRAD, middleware designed to tackle disconnection problems with ad hoc networks (MANET). GRAD will make the user able to re-establish the connection when a session is interrupted. Thanks to it, it will be possible to record the information when a node is disconnected, thereby significantly strengthening networks subject to recurring disconnection. GRAD can be used for military applications, general mobile networks or multi-player network based games.

Real-time Magnetic Resonance Imagery
IRM-TR is a project initiated by INRIA, CEA (French Atomic Energy Commission), INSERM (French national institute of health and medical research) and NEUROSPIN. It is intended to be used in the medical field and more specifically for neuroscience research. It is a computing architecture used for real-time processing of data supplied by an MRI scanner. Doctors can use it, for example, to change MRI acquisition parameters (e.g. repetition time between two excitations and the echo time, etc.) according to information provided by the scanner. Doctors will therefore be able to use this software to analyze a patient’s brain in real-time.
IRM-TR both speeds up the diagnostic carried out by the doctor and reduces examination time.

Maturation and transfer of MONOLIX software, a modelling tool for pharmacometrics and in particular PK-PD (pharmacokinetics-pharmacodynamics)
The INRIA (in collaboration with CNRS, Université Paris-Sud 11 and INSERM) is developing the MONOLIX modelling software used in pharmacometrics*, which is highly effective, flexible and user-friendly. The software uses the most powerful stochastic algorithms, both in terms of speed, quality of results and range of models it can process. It also possesses a graphic interface which is very popular with users. MONOLIX is therefore positioning itself as the leading tool for population pharmacology modelling.
N.B. : *"Pharmacometrics" is a recently developed discipline which aims to provide better analysis of the range of physiological data (concentrations, biomarkers, pharmacological effects, undesirable effects) as well as their development over time and their variability between patients. It aims to achieve a better understanding of the whole dose-response relationship in order to help plan clinical trials, especially through simulation, by taking better account of sources of variability and uncertainty. These analyses rely on more or less simple physiological models and require more complex statistical tools such as non-linear mixed effects modelling.

Software Defined Radio for research and teaching
SDR4all is a result of collaboration between the CEA and Supélec. The software is designed for engineering schools, research institutes and telecommunications companies. It is based on the principle of Software Defined Radio (SDR). It involves a radio receiver created mainly by software and used in mobile radio networks such as GSM for example. Using SDR4all, users can introduce algorithms into transmission channels in real time and test its transmission schemes under real-life conditions. This makes it easy to move through the development stages (theory -> simulation -> implementation) and so considerably reduces the innovation cycle.
TOMO3D-EA : 3D tomographic reconstruction using artificial evolution in medical imaging
The TOMO3D-EA approach derives from an evolutionnary successful algorithm : "the Fly algorithm". The expected result will be an evolutionnary PET tomography reconstruction prototype that :
- Improves the precision of reconstructed images
- Integrates more effectively the diffusion effect
- Facilitates quantitative imagery
TOMO3D-EA technology will be transfered to an Industrial partner to be identified.

A unified simulation environment for the implementation of virtual platforms
The project is focusing on how to optimize current standards in order to specify/implement hardware simulators. A vast library will be provided allowing to implement those methods and to apply them in real applications.
Project highlights :
1. Integration within one unique simulation environment
- Covers the complete development cycle
- Based upon the SystemC industrial standard
- Allows extensive reuse of existing simulators and their components
2. Innovative methods to enhance the tool’s capabilities such as :
- Overall simulation speed
- System design coverage
3. Complete and interoperable model libraries
The project is geared towards system integrators and all system design companies writing software on purposely built hardware platforms. Such companies often need simulation capabilities that are not currently met by commercial products due to the inherent hardware complexity. UNISIM, offering a unified simulation environment, provides an appealing solution thanks to its openness and commitment to open standards.

Security in ad-hoc networks
Securing OLSR version 2 using elliptic curve cryptography and digital signature
The Cryptonet team is currently working towards securing the popular OLSRv2 protocol in order to make it robust against disruptive attacks. Our approach : using digital signatures based on elliptic curves.
Our goal is to spread awareness on major security issues arising in mobile ad-hoc networks, highlight issues arising in mobile ad-hoc networks, attract industrial partners with a practical stance on security and ultimately foster new academic-industrial partnerships.
