A fellowship contract will be celebrated according to:

  1. Law 40/2004 of 18th of August (Scientific Research Fellow Status) and its successive amendments, including the amendments introduced by the Decree Law n. 123/2019 of 28 th of August

    https://dre.pt/web/guest/legislacao-consolidada/-/lc/124281176/201912061112/73740605/diploma/indice?lcq=estatuto+do+bolseiro,

     

  2. Regulations for Research Grants of the Foundation for Science and Technology in force (https://www.fct.pt/apoios/bolsas/docs/RegulamentoBolsasFCT2019.pdf )

     

  3. INESC-ID Lisboa Grant Regulations

https://www.inesc-id.pt/scholarship-regulations/

The fellowship contract is awarded on an exclusive dedication basis – art. 5 of Scientific Research Fellow Status and art. 16 of Regulations for Research Grants of the Foundation for Science and Technology.

4 | MONTHLY AMOUNT

The monthly amount of the grant 875.98€ is in accordance with the values stipulated in the “Regulations for Research Grants of the Foundation for Science and Technology” in force https://www.fct.pt/apoios/bolsas/docs/Tabela_de_Valores_SMM_2022.pdf ) and shall be rendered through a monthly bank transfer to an account held by the grantee

5 | OBJECTIVES/WORKPLAN

Function-as-a-Service (FaaS) is a promising new cloud computing model that is becoming extremely popular, not only for running simple website requests but also for processing complex data analytics tasks, traditionally labelled as Big Data applications. FaaS applications are predominantly developed in high-level languages such as Java and, as consequence, naturally suffer from all the well-known problems related to Garbage Collection, code warmup, etc. However, FaaS imposes new restrictions on many aspects compared to traditional Big Data applications deployed in VMs. These restrictions include smaller task partition, lower compute power available to each worker, tighter time limits for each task, among others. The goal of this task is to evaluate how novaVM behaves in such FaaS environments and to point out its benefits compared to off-the-shelf runtimes. It is also a goal to point out potential areas of future improvement in novaVM so that it could adapt better to this new cloud computing model.

6 | SCIENTIFIC SUPERVISION

The activity will be supervised by Luís Manuel Antunes Veiga, Associate Professor at IST and researcher at INESC-D.
