SFA Wrap is a community effort

We welcome you to join us and benefit from the SFA federation, yet without giving up of any of your own testbed specific functionalities or features.
SFA Wrap is a free open source add-on. It offers you a channel to globally emerging tools and allows another channel to expose your resources to thousands of users - again without giving away your autonomy or control over your resources. You can give or take - or preferably both!
Take the SFA wrapper, give your specifics, contributions to drivers. You + we = we is better and bigger!

The development team is headed by lead developer Thierry Parmentelat, the Generic SFA Wrapper has been developed and the support continues by a team of experienced researchers:

Dr Thierry Parmentelat

Dr Thierry Parmentelat is a senior research engineer at INRIA Sophia-Antipolis, and is currently Technical Director of the OneLab experimental facility. His areas of interest include experimental testbeds, networking, and programming languages. Prior to joining INRIA, he has held various positions within the software industry; he has been CTO with Centile, a VOIP company; and has designed and implemented critical systems for various industrial sectors, such as nuclear energy and aerospace. He graduated from the École Polytechnique in 1984, and received his PhD in 1991.

Panayotis Antoniadis

Panayotis Antoniadis is a postdoctoral fellow at UPMC Sorbonne Universités (UPMC). His main research contributions are in the economic modelling and incentive mechanisms for peer-to-peer systems (2002-2006) and in distributed scheduling algorithms for high-speed switches (2000). He is currently working on the design of incentive mechanisms for resource allocation and provision in shared network facilities in the context of the OneLab experimental facility. He is also exploring the provision of social incentives and social software design for community building over neighbourhood wireless mesh networks. He has contributed to several European Union IST projects in the past (Ca$hman, MMAPPS, WIP, and OneLab2).
He received his BSc and MSc degrees from the Computer Science Department of University of Crete in 1998 and 2000 respectively and his PhD degree from the Department of Informatics of Athens University of Economics and Business in 2006.
