Optimal scheduling of clinical pathway - Under care quality, resource, and ethical constraints

A clinical pathway is a multi-disciplinary view of the care process for a group of similar patients suffering from the same disease and with predictable evolution. While scheduling the care for a single patient is straightforward, scheduling the care for a group of patient, and under limited resources is much more complex, and software tooling might provide useful help to deliver quality schedules.

Management of Procurement Risks on Manufacturing Processes - Results of a survey about the state of the practices and their requirements

The management of procurement risks induced by suppliers and their impact on industrial processes chains is still arduously evaluated and handled by the companies today, in particular by SMEs. In the context of the CORNET SimQRi project, CETIC and the Institut Fraunhofer led an survey with Walloon and German SMEs in order to establish the current state of risk management practices and identify the associated requirements.

OscaR - An open source platform for operational research (LGPL)

OscaR is a software framework that includes the three major optimization engines that are commonly used in operational research, namely: constraint programming, constraint-based local search, and MIP. The goal of OscaR is to address industrial problems, by making these solvers available, efficient and easy to use. The engines of OscaR have similar API, making them easy to use and hybridize for complex applications.

The BonFIRE Infrastructure Is Now Open for Free Access

CETIC took part to the BonFIRE project’s first Open Call for experiments, one and a half year ago. Read more about our contribution to this project through the BonFIRE-ExSec experiment lead by our CETIC experts in Gestion d’infrastructures de Cloud.
Overall, the first two Open Calls have given academic researchers, developers and SMEs access to BonFIRE’s Cloud infrastructures named Open Access.

Paravirtualize an Ubuntu VM using XenServer - Convert a Ubuntu 11.10 DomU from HVM to PV using XenServer 6.0 is not trivial

In the ComodIT project, every ways to boot virtual machines using OpenStack are tested. It happens that one of these methods is only available using VMs hypervised with XenServer. A documentation explains how to install and configure OpenStack in a Ubuntu DomU to control a Dom0 XenServer. However, this DomU have to run in paravirtualized (PV) mode rather than in hardware virtualization (HVM) mode.
Such a conversion from HVM to PV isn’t trivial, especially for the Oneiric release. This article explains how to convert a Ubuntu 11.10 DomU to PV using XenServer 6.0.
