After our experience with GRiSP 1 in the LightKone project, we are supporting the GRiSP 2 development. GRiSP is a very nice system and software for prototyping IoT applications directly in Erlang, with Pmod modules. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/peerstritzinger/grisp-2?ref=nav_search&result=project&term=grise
Marc Shapiro, LightKone’s researcher, will participate in “Trends in Distributed Computing” symposium, which will be held at Collège de France, France, on the 12th of April 2019. Marc Shapiro’s talk is entitled “Living without consensus”, and is one of 13 different talks in this event. The symposium is organised by Collège de France and will end with a talk […]
Igor Kopestenski, a researcher of LightKone project, has presented a paper entitled “Achlys: Towards a framework for distributed storage and generic computing applications for wireless IoT edge networks with Lasp on GRiSP” at the SmartEdge 2019 Workshop collocated with the IEEE Journal on Pervasive Computing and Communications (IEEE PerCom 2019), which took place at Kyoto, […]
The LightKone paper, entitled “Efficient Synchronization of State-based CRDTs”, was reviewed last Monday by The Morning Paper, a newsletter that is read on a daily basis by thousands of researchers all over the world. This article results from an MSc thesis about CRDTs. CRDTs are key components in modern geo-replicated systems, such as Riak, Redis […]
LightKone has two new papers that were accepted in the 6th Workshop on Principles and Practice of Consistency for Distributed Data (PaPoC). The workshop will take place on March 25th, 2019, in Dresden, Germany, and will be co-located with the EuroSys 2019 international conference. One of the papers is entitled “Invariant Safety for Distributed Applications” […]
Last week, on 4 and 8 February, Dimitrios Vasilas, our partner from Scality, participated in the 4th GDR RSD and ASF Winter School on Distributed Systems and Networks, which took place in the village of Pleynet, Sept Laux. The paper “Towards tunable querying in distributed data stores”, which was presented in this edition, is directly related to […]
The LightKone European project is now on Medium, a blog platform in which content with a big worldwide community can be shared. Every month, the project will share a blog post regarding the corresponding activity of their partners. This posts can be reached by industrial and academic entities.
An article entitled “Efficient Synchronization of State-based CRDTs”, authored by Vítor Enes, Paulo Sérgio Almeida and Carlos Baquero, our partners from INESC TEC, together with João Leitão, our partner from NOVA LINCS, was accepted for publication in the 35th IEEE International Conference on Data Engineering (ICDE 2019). This article results from an MSc thesis about CRDTs. CRDTs are key components in […]
One of Peter van Roy and Seif Haridi book’s chapter, entitled “Programming paradigms for dummies: what every programmer should know”, was discussed in the “The Morning Paper” this week. The chapter gives an introduction to the main programming paradigms and presents a taxonomy of about 30 useful programming paradigms, showing how they relate. For more […]
Peter Van Roy, LightKone coordinator, gave a talk at CETIC, an industrial research laboratory, on January 24, in Charleroi, Belgium. The whole talk was based on LiRA, LightKone Reference Architecture, and was entitled “Practical Edge Computing with LiRA”. This talk was organized as part of CETIC Workshop on Edge Computing.
