POTIOC presents its latest scientific results and innovations in Human-computer interaction at the 2017 CHI conference
The POTIOC team from Inria Bordeaux - Sud-Ouest center is presenting its Human-computer interaction (HCI) expertise at the 2017 annual CHI conference taking place this year in Denver, USA, from 6 to 11 May. Each year, this very prestigious and selective event rewards the best research carried out throughout the world in the field of HMI. An historic event in the field, this year it is focusing on the theme "Explore, Innovate, Inspire" and will bring together people from multiple disciplines and cultures in order to explore new ways to design, develop and assess methods and systems... Several Inria research teams, who have distinguished themselves as being among the best in the world in this domain, are taking part. Here is a close-up of the work carried out within Potioc, the Bordeaux-based team.

Ayoub Tamim, former PhD student from the Geostat project team, receives the 2017 Hubert Curien Thesis Award gold medal for the quality of the work carried out in his thesis entitled "Segmentation and classification of satellite images: application to the detection of Moroccan coastal upwelling zones and implementation of a spatio-temporal monitoring software program".
The reproducibility of experiments and observations is the very basis of the scientific approach, and the computational sciences are not an exception. Indeed, code should also be reproducible, which means that codes from original works must be accessible and functional. This is, however, far from being the case - as Nicolas Rougier, a researcher with the MNEMOSYNE project team, recently observed.
In 2017, Inria is celebrating its 50 years and Plug'In its fifth publication!
Innovations, discoveries, passions, collaborations...This year - once again - dive into the heart of digital science research in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region. Plug'In's ambition: to let people see and understand the digital revolution in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine.
In this new edition, we find the shared views of Virginie Calmels - deputy mayor of Bordeaux, in charge of the economy, employment and sustainable growth - and François Cansell, director-general of graduate school Bordeaux INP, on the actions put in place within Bordeaux Métropole in order to raise awareness among young people with regard to the digital sciences and, in particular, encourage the access of young women to scientific courses; advances with regard to augmented and virtual reality; a zoom on PhDs; a perspective on digital science researchers and showcasing of researcher-entrepreneurs who have decided to create their start-up.
Have a great read!
'Le Monde' Research Prize 2016
Last December Julien Jouganous, former Phd student in the Monc team, received the 2016 Research Prize awarded by the prestigious French newspaper 'Le Monde' for his research work on modelling and simulation in oncology, at a time when cancer remains one of the major public health challenges of the 21st century.
2016 Serge Hocquenghem Prize
Didier Roy has been awarded the 2016 Serge Hocquenghem prize for his work in computer science and education sciences.
He was all the more “happy and honoured” to receive this prize as it is named after the creator of Geoplan, an innovative geometry software tool that this former mathematics teacher adopted as soon as it came out (more than twenty years ago). “This tool did a great deal to stimulate my interest in the use of digital technology in teaching,” he remembers.
European Research Council 2016
Fabien Lotte is a researcher at Inria’s Bordeaux centre. He works on brain-computer interfaces by modelling the learning processes. He has just been awarded an ERC Starting Grant, which will allow him to open up this still recent field of research to the human factor, an aspect that has been largely overlooked by the specialists and that could help improve the use of interfaces.
Inria joins OpenMP ARB to take up one of the major challenges of the Exascale era: parallel language standardisation
On 22 July 2016 Inria joined the OpenMP Architecture Review Board (OpenMP ARB), an association of 28 manufacturers, software publishers and research bodies, all leaders in their field, to collaborate in the design of a standard parallel programming model using shared memory.
