HOOVER: Distributed, Flexible, and Scalable Streaming Graph Processing on OpenSHMEM
RICE UNIVERSITY –
Many problems can benefit from being phrased as a graph processing or graph analytics problem: infectious disease modeling, insider threat detection, fraud prevention, social network analysis, and more. These problems all share a common property: the relationships between entities in these systems are crucial to understanding the overall behavior of the systems themselves. However, relations are rarely if ever static. As our ability to collect information on those relations improve (e.g. on financial transactions in fraud prevention), the value added by large-scale, high-performance, dynamic/streaming (rather than static) graph analysis becomes significant.
This talk introduces HOOVER, a distributed software framework for large-scale, dynamic graph modeling and analysis. HOOVER sits on top of OpenSHMEM, a PGAS programming system, and enables users to plug in application-specific logic while handling all runtime coordination of computation and communication. HOOVER has demonstrated scaling out to 24,576 cores, and is flexible enough to support a wide range of graph-based applications, including infectious disease modeling and anomaly detection.

Workshop “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango” – 2nd Edition
Title: Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango – 2nd Edition
Dates: October 25-26, 2022
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
