With a European Research Council (ERC) prize to her name, Wendy Mackay is delighted to be able to explore radical innovations in computer-user interfaces.
The Smart City : Inria and CITRIS chosen by the cities of Paris and San Francisco to conduct research.
The cities of Paris and San Francisco have respectively chosen Inria (Research Center Paris-Rocquencourt) and the University of Berkeley in California to carry out joint research on the smart city.
The chosen topic for the second Semaine des mathématiques (Maths Week), 18th - 24th March 2013, is "Mathematics for planet Earth". This provides us with the perfect opportunity to promote research projects focussing on this subject.
Interview with Olivier Teytaud, from the Tao project team, which is embarking on the POST project with the aim of creating a software platform enabling investment in the electrical system to be optimised on a continental scale.
Inria researchers at the heart of the action around ALMA, the world's largest radio telescope, in Chile
From a plan started in 1995, ALMA, the fruit of a partnership between Europe, North America, Japan and Chile, was officially opened on Wednesday, 13 March, after taking ten years to build. Using its unprecedented radio images, astronomers hope to discover distant galaxies and better understand the processes by which stars are formed. Proper operational use of the giant telescope entails real-time interpretation of thousands of parameters. Emmanuel Pietriga, with members of the Massive Data team at Inria Chile, is in the country for two years, developing the instrument's control user interfaces.

- The Shacra research team has two locations: the Inria Lille - Nord Europe research centre and the Nancy - Grand Est research centre. It works together with Lille1 University
Would you like to carry out rewarding research work in computer science and applied mathematics? Are you a young and talented scientist? Inria can offer you a position in on one of its research teams to work on your PhD thesis. Inria is offering forty-four government funded thesis positions among others in 2013.
Inria and the University of Washington announce the creation of the ns-3 Consortium. The purpose of this consortium is to sustain the ns-3 network simulator, group its users community of users and developers, improve its visibility in the industry and enable it to become a standard in the field of network simulation.

The methods for reconstructing three-dimensional shapes developed by Frédéric Chazal and David Cohen-Steiner, two researchers in the Geometrica team (based at Inria Saclay-Ile-de-France and Sophia Antipolis-Méditerranée) are proving to be of unexpected use to astrophysicists. This discovery may be unexpected, but it is not all that surprising.
