Interfaces Symposium

Towards an algorithmic of nanosciences integration?

"Interfaces", Aquitaine scientific symposium for digital sciences. This serie of talks will host several times a year, scientists from entire world, recognized for the quality of their work and the results they produce. Topics will treat about computer sciences and applied mathematics but mostly about their intersections with others sciences and fields. Medicine, Social sciences and humanities, art, etc. are such topics that are addressed.

  • Date : 7/07/2016
  • Place : IOA - Institut d'Optique Aquitain, Rue François Mitterrand 33400 Talence at 11h00
  • Guest(s) : Gianluca Iaccarino - Mechanical Engineering Department & Institute for Computational Mathematical Engineering, Stanford University
  • Organiser(s) : Centre de Recherche Inria Bordeaux - Sud-Ouest

For its third edition, Interfaces •  Aquitaine scientific symposium for digital sciences , welcomes : 

Stéphane Redon

The talk will held in French and will be followed by a drink.   

Towards an algorithmic of nanoscience integration?

The first-ever nanocar race will be held in Toulouse in October, 2016, and will show the last improvements in the field of nanosystems design. Modeling and simulation could be very helpful for molecular cars or other complex nanosystems (such as drug carriers, electronic devices, nano-sensors, etc.) design and analysis phases. Unfortunately, the interdisciplinarity which is required to study or design complex nanosystems slows down nanosciences growth. Moreover, the current software platforms are often used for specific applications. SAMSON, a new software platform which aims at  associating/combining algorithmic nanosciences and making easier the study and the design of complex nanosystems, will be introduced upon the talk (

Inria, Grenoble - Rhone-Alpes 

Stephane Redon leads the NANO-D research group at the INRIA Grenoble – Rhone-Alpes Research Center. He graduated from Ecole Polytechnique in 1998, and received his M.S. in 1999 from Pierre and Marie Curie University, France. He received a Ph.D. in Computer Science in 2002 from INRIA Rocquencourt – Evry University, France, while working with Dr. Sabine Coquillart and Prof. Abderrahmane Kheddar on robust interactive simulation of rigid body systems and its applications to virtual prototyping and animation. He spent two years in the Department of Computer Science of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill as a Post-Doctoral Research Associate, working with Prof. Ming C. Lin in the GAMMA research team. His research interests have included the design of robust and realistic real-time virtual environments, collision detection, haptics, motion planning, simulation levels of detail, and computational molecular biology. His current research is centered on the development of computational methods for modeling and simulation of natural and artificial nanosystems. He is the principal architect and lead developer of the SAMSON software platform for computational nanoscience.
