IN'Tech seminar

Open Source and innovation: Open Source as a development methodology - programme

The IN'Tech technology watch club, led by Inria and the association Grenoble Isère Logiciel (GRILOG), is organising a half-day of forums between researchers and industrial operators on development methodologies and experiments based on open source, on Tuesday, 12 January 2010 from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., at the Inria centre in Montbonnot.

  • Date : 12/01/2010
  • Place : Inria Grenoble - Rhône-Alpes, Montbonnot

  1. Marcos Serrano - IIHM team - LIG  
    OpenInterface is an open-source framework developed by the OpenInterface European consortium, FP6-35182. The framework is downloadable at: 
    The OpenInterface framework is made of an underlying platform, namely OpenInterface platform, and the OpenInterface Interaction Development Environment (OIDE). The OIDE is a component-based system built on top of a run-time kernel, the OpenInterface platform. The platform is able to handle distributed heterogeneous components based on different technologies (Java, C++, Matlab, Python, .NET). The OIDE allows the designer to define a multimodal interaction by assembling components.
    The demonstration will showcase a selection of components from the OIDE component repository, both developed "in-house" (e.g., cubtile-based gesture, accelerometer-based gesture, two-handed interaction) and also accessible via proxies to other component sets (e.g., Phidgets, ARToolkit). Our components include device drivers, interaction techniques, multimodal fusion facilities, development services and developer-defined combinations. The OI components and interaction techniques are downloadable at (OI repository).
  2. Loris Bouzonnet - PhD student at Université de Grenoble (SARDES project-team, Inria Grenoble Rhone Alpes Research Centre) & (JEM team, Bull S.A.S.)  
    Java EE cluster administration with JASMINe.
  3. François Aubriot - DotRiver
  4. Nicolas Guerin - Xerox Codendi
  5. Ludovic Poitou - Sun  

Plenary speeches

4:45 p.m. Use of open-source "forges" in an industrial context.  
Nicolas Guerin, Xerox 
Thierry Jacquin, Xerox

5:15 p.m. Feedback on collaborative development tools inspired by open source  
Laurent Charles, STMicroelectronics

Closing of the seminar
