Laurent Lefevre is a research associate in Inria (Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et en Automatique) in Ecole Normale Superieure of Lyon, France.

Laurent Lefèvre obtained his Ph.D. in Computer Science in January 1997 at LIP Laboratory (Laboratoire Informatique du Parallelisme) in ENS-Lyon (Ecole Normale Superieure), France. From 1997 to 2001, he was assistant professor in computer science in Lyon 1 University and a member of the RESAM Laboratory (High Performance Networks and Multimedia Application Support Lab.). Since 2001, he is research associate in computer science at Inria (the French Institute for Research in Computer Science and Control). He is a member of the Inria AVALON team (Algorithms and Software Architectures for Distributed and HPC systems) from the LIP laboratory in Lyon, France.

His research interests focus on Green and Energy Efficient Computing and Networking. He has organized several conferences in high performance networking and computing and he is a member of several program committees. Recently, he was co-general chair of ICPP2013 conference (42th International Conference on Parallel Processing), CGC2013 (Third International Conference on Cloud and Green Computing) and program chair of the IEEE International Conference on Green Computing and Communications (GreenCom 2012). He has co-authored more than 100 papers published in refereed journals and conference proceedings. He participates in several national, European and international projects on energy efficiency in HPC, Clouds and networks. From 2010 to 2012, he was involved in the PrimeEnergyIT european project on energy efficiency in small and medium datacenters (Intelligent Energy in Europe). From 2009 to 2013, he was management committee member and co Working Group leader in the COST IC804 action on “Energy efficiency in large scale distributed systems”. Since 2010, he is executive board member and participant in the GreenTouch consortium focusing on energy efficiency in communication networks. He is currently involved in the design of Green Clouds through several french projects (FSN XLCLOUD (2012-2015) and  FUI CompatibleOne (2010-2012)). He is co-leader of Working Group on Energy Efficiency of the IC1305 COST Action “Network for Sustainable Ultrascale Computing Systems (NESUS)”.
