The Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas (FORTH) is the premier research centre in Greece, internationally acknowledged for its excellence in basic and applied research, in developing applications and products, and in providing services. The Institute of Computer Science (ICS), one of the six Institutes of FORTH, will be contributing to this project. FORTH-ICS has a 35-year history of internationally competitive R&D contributions across the fields of Information & Communication Technologies, as well as of academic and industrial cooperation; it has adopted an evolving strategy to promote the commercial exploitation of R&D results by providing services, licensing products to industrial partners, contracting with industrial partners to jointly develop new products, and participating in spin-off companies and joint ventures. FORTH-ICS represents Greece in the European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics (ERCIM). The Institute ranked first among all Greek institutes of its field in all national evaluation rounds so far (last evaluation 2014). FORTH-ICS participates in the project through its Computer Architecture and VLSI Systems (CARV) laboratory. CARV has a 30-year history, in architecture, hardware, and systems software R&D, with fundamental contributions in high-speed communication, scalable computing, and, more recently, in server architectures, storage systems, programming models, and analytics infrastructure. CARV has been accumulating experience and expertise through a long series of real-life prototypes in both systems software and hardware, with innovations in design, implementation and performance optimisation.


FORTH's contributions in the DEEP-SEA project is focused on three main technical areas, corresponding to work packages “Software Architecture and System Software”, “Node-level programming”, and “System-level programming” respectively: (a) resource manager and scheduling functionality extensions and scalability enhancements (for the Slurm resource manager and scheduler), (b) efficient use and sharing of node-level heterogeneous memory devices, and (c) system software supporting efficient execution of jobs and workflows (with particular emphasis on the use of NVM) and resiliency in large-scale clusters.
