Matching is a fundamental combinatorial problem that has a wide range of applications. PIKS project focuses on the data reduction rules for the cardinality matching problem proposed by Karp and Sipser and designs efficient parallel algorithms.
PIKS project is funded by PHC AURORA programme. PHC AURORA is the French-Norwegian Hubert Curien Partnership. It is implemented in Norway by the Norwegian Research Council, and in France by Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs (Ministère de l'Europe et des Affaires étrangères) and by the Ministry Higher Education, Research and Innovation (Ministère de l'Enseignement supérieur, de la Recherche et de l'Innovation).
PIKS project is carried out by Johannes Langguth from Simula Research Laboratory, Ioannis Panagiotas, from ENS de Lyon at first and then at LIP6 of the Sorbonne University, and Bora Uçar, from CNRS and LIP, ENS de Lyon.
