The 41st edition of the International SIGGRAPH conference meets from 10 to 14 August in Vancouver, Canada. Thousands of researchers and industrialists from computer graphics and interactive techniques domains present their latest advances for special effects in movies, video games production or interaction techniques. On this occasion the Imagine, Maverick and Prima Inria teams present their recent research results and software developments in modeling light effects, animation of drawings and video compositing.

Siggraph is the leading event in the computer graphics and graphics programming world. This year’s conference will be held in Vancouver, Canada from 10 to 14 August.
Last month, the Mint project team (joint with the French National Centre for Scientific Research and the Université Lille 1*) welcomed secondary school pupils and lecturers from the Lycée Baggio in Lille into its laboratory. This meeting was organised by Jonathan Aceituno, a PhD student in the team, and was an opportunity for students to discover the world of research in digital science.

Massive Open Online Courses
MoocLab was established by Inria in May 2013 with the aim of coordinating the activities of Inria and those partners wishing to join it in the field of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). These new digital social entities are still at the experimental stage, but they are poised to enter a period of rapid growth.
The MimeTIC project-team at the Inria Rennes-Bretagne Atlantique research centre stands at the interface between two laboratories: the 'Movement, Sport and Health' laboratory in the science and technique of physical and sports activities, and the Institute for Research in Computer Science and Random Systems (Irisa) in IT. Its research activities focus on three main areas. MimeTIC Manager Franck Multon gives us the low-down.
Deezer, the French leader in Web-based music streaming, is attempting to win over the American market. With Inria, the company is developing a music recommendation system to attract new listeners.
Supercomputers allow the smooth running of programmes intended to solve major scientific challenges, whether they involve the discovery of new proteins or climate modelling. They are composed of thousands of processors working in parallel and are governed by algorithms which constantly change to adapt to their increasingly complex architectures. The algorithm researcher Yves Robert is one of the global specialists in this discipline. He is also the first European to receive the IEEE TCSC Award, which rewards the work of a researcher in the field of high-performance computing.
Futur en Seine
As part of the Futur en Seine, Inria is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Web alongside Tim Berners Lee, the inventor of this fantastic tool! On 13 June, at a conference, Sir Tim will share the challenges that, from his point of view, await the Web in the next 25 years. His speech will be followed by a discussion with various Web experts, including Fabien Gandon, manager of the Inria Wimmics project team, who will give us his vision of the Web.
