Team Dark-Era

IETR (INSA Rennes)

Jean-François Nezan, Karol Desnos, and Mickael Dardaillon

IETR is expert in dataflow models, Algorithm Architecture Matching methodology, development of prototyping tools and signal processing applications including video coding, telecom and astronomy. IETR leads the development of ORCC and PREESM tools and is involved in SKA since 2014 through the co-supervision of 7 Master and 1 PhD students. J.F. Nezan has worked full-time for six months in 2020 on SKA at AUT.

IRISA (ENS Rennes)

Martin Quinson and Frédéric Suter

The MYRIADS team gathers two core members of the SimGrid tool. They have decades of experience in the optimisation of HPC systems, and the study of scheduling algorithms through simulation of IT systems.

L2S (Univ. Paris-Saclay —CNRS — CentraleSupelec)

Nicolas Gac and François Orieux

The Inverse Problems Team (GPI) has mixed expertise in architecture and signal processing with a long-term experience in deconvolution applied to astronomy. It is notably involved in the radio astronomy Hyperstars project which aims at extracting the skeleton of star formation from massive hyperspectral cubes.

Lagrange (OCA — CNRS — UCA Nice)

André Ferrari, Chiara Ferrari, and Simon Prunet

A. Ferrari has strong expertise on signal processing algorithms dedicated to radio astronomy (leader of the ended ANR MAGELLAN and WP leader in ANR DARLING). C. Ferrari is a radio astronomer, director of SKA-France.

Obs. Nançay (Obs. Paris)

Cédric Dumez-Viou, Cyril Tasse, and Daniel Charlet

C. Dumez-Viou is a research engineer highly involved in NenuFAR telescope. C. Tasse is an astronomer working with O. Smirnov team (SKA SA) on new Direction-Dependent Effects algorithms and the DDFacet library. D. Charlet is a research engineer at IJCLab with strong expertise on FPGA applied on radiotelescopes.
