As part of TANDEM*, an Investment in the Future Programme, the Cardamom project-team is contributing to “the expansion of scientific knowledge of France to anticipate the impact of a tsunami on France's Atlantic coastlines.” Ten renowned partners have committed to the four-year multidisciplinary project designed to provide improved awareness of risks and corrective actions to take.
Fingerprinting makes it possible to secretly collect data from net surfers that makes it possible to identify them. This is known as “fingerprinting”. The process is as effective as it is hard to detect. Two Inria teams, based inRennes and Lille,are seeking to exposethis potential menace to privacy.
Since 1st July 2015, the Inria Grenoble - Rhône-Alpes ERABLE* team has been bringing together biologists and computer scientists to study interactions between species, particularly at cell level. A scientific adventure with an international dimension.
The Inria Saclay - Île-de-France research centre presents Wilder, a video wall composed of 75 screens. The Wilder video wall is part of the Digiscope Equipement d’Excellence programme and is the successor to the Wild project. As well as being bigger than its predecessor, Wilder incorporates screens with virtually invisible edges. The array is designed to allow scientists to view very large images and explore complex data with astonishing comfort.
The Inria Lille - Nord Europe project-team Bonsai (run jointly with the CNRS and Université Lille1*) has created Vidjil, software for high-throughput analysis of white blood cells. Objective: provide physicians with a tool for treating leukemia. As March 28 and 29 are national leukemia days in France, the creators of Vidjil took this opportunity to explain how it works.
What are the laws of physics that determine the movements of millions of grains in a silo?It’s a question that has baffled scientists for over a century.The work of Nicolas Brodu, a post-doctoral researcher in the Geostat project team at Inria Bordeaux - Sud-Ouest, has thrown a little more light on the matter.

Turing Award 2013
On 21 June, the Association for Computing Machinery's Turing Award for 2013 will be presented to Leslie Lamport, a researcher at the Microsoft Research-Inria joint laboratory. Below is a review of the 40-year career of a researcher in mathematics for digital technology
Christophe Godin, of the Inria Virtual Plants team, and Teva Vernoux, of the Laboratory of Plant Reproduction and Development (CNRS/ENS Lyon/INRA/UCBL), have conducted a project whose results cast light on the way plants form their amazing, universal arrangements of organs in spirals or in crowns. A total of 23 researchers and engineers from various disciplines contributed to this discovery, which has been published in the December issue of the journal Nature . A joint interview.
Serge Abiteboul was awarded the 2013 Milner Award in recognition of his database research. Research Director at Inria Saclay, he is also member of the French Academy of Sciences and the Conseil national du numérique (France).
