Thesis : Consistency trade-offs in edge computingPhD school thesis
Based on a literature search and on a study of existing systems, the PhD student will study the different facets of causal and stronger consistency, in order to isolate, classify, and formalise the trade-offs. In addition, the student will perform an experimental study (most likely in simulation) of some interesting points in the design space, along metrics such as response time, availability, propagation delay, network cost, loss of parallelism, memory and computation resources, etc.
Ultimately, the goal of the research is to design, implement and evaluate an efficient hybrid consistency model for edge-first systems.
This PhD research project has been submitted for a funding request to “Ecole Doctorale d‘Informatique, Télécommunication et d‘Electronique (EDITE)”. The PhD candidate selected by the project leader will therefore participate in the project selection process (including a file and an interview) to obtain funding.
