High speed networks are now providing incredible performances. Software evolution is slow and the old protocol stacks are no longer adequate for these kind of communication speed. When band-width increases, the latency should decrease as much in order to keep the system balance. With the current network technology, the main bottleneck is most of the time(More)
Block cyclic distribution seems to suit well for most linear algebra algorithms and this type of data distribution was chosen for the ScaLAPACK library as well as for the HPF language. But one has to choose a good compromise for the size of the blocks (to achieve a good computation and communication eeciency and a good load balancing). This choice heavily(More)
The lattice Boltzmann method (LBM) is an innovative and promising approach in computational fluid dynamics. From an algorithmic standpoint it reduces to a regular data parallel procedure and is therefore well-suited to high performance computations. Numerous works report efficient implementations of the LBM for the GPU, but very few mention multi-GPU(More)
Emerging many-core processors, like CUDA capable nVidia GPUs, are promising platforms for regular parallel algorithms such as the Lattice Boltzmann Method (LBM). Since global memory on graphic devices shows high latency and LBM is data intensive, memory access pattern is an important issue to achieve good performances. Whenever possible, global memory loads(More)

This paper introduces our work on the communication stack of wireless sensor networks. We present the IPv6 approach for wireless sensor networks called 6LoWPAN in its IETF charter. We then compare the different implementations of 6LoWPAN subsets for several sensor nodes platforms. We present our approach for the 6LoWPAN implementation which aims to preserve(More)
This paper investigates the sinks mobility in IPv6- based wireless sensors networks and specially in the new IETF proposed protocol RPL (Routing Protocol for Low power and Lossy Networks). We also show that even the mobility of sinks is not an explicit design criteria, the use of mobile sinks improves the network lifetime. In this work, we propose a new(More)
