From biometrics to health care
Antitza Dantcheva, researcher in the Stars team at the Inria Sophia Antipolis - Méditerranée centre, is a recipient of the ANR JCJC (Young researchers grant). She is currently working on concrete applications ranging from security to health care.
Xavier Pennec, Senior researcher at Sophia Antipolis - Méditerranée centre, has been elected as a Fellow
of the MICCAI scientific society for “pioneering theoretical contributions grounding the field of computational anatomy, shape statistics and medical image computing”. He is the second scientist from Asclepios project-team being honored with this distinction, along with team leader Nicholas Ayache.
MICCAI (Medical Image Computing and Computer Assisted Intervention) Society Fellowship was started in 2009 to recognize exceptional contributions to Medical Image Computing and/or Computer-assisted Interventions,of senior members to the MICCAI community.

Best paper award
At WebAudio Conference in August 2017, Michel Buffa received a best paper presentation Award for his demo of the WebAudio Guitar Tube Amp Simulator of the Wasabi Project. Michel Buffa is a lecturer at the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis and member of the joint I3S / Inria Wimmics project-team. His co-author is Jerôme Lebrun researcher at the I3S laboratory of the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis. The Wimmics research team has developed applications using WebAudio emerging technology, a new W3C standard which can be found in recent web browsers and has thus created in a webpage the simulation of a guitar tube amplifier, which is unique in the world. The guitarist can recreate a guitar amp on his computer, with no installation necessary.
Privacy on the internet
Nobody is safe on the Internet: commercial websites are constantly using ingenious ways in which they track, profile and identify users. While European Parliament is discussing these problems in scope of the ePrivacy Regulation, Nataliia Bielova, an expert in the subject and a researcher at the Inria Sophia Antipolis - Méditerranée centre, was invited to present the work of the two project-teams Indes and Privatics, during an event devoted to ePrivacy .

PhD Seminars Anniversary
"The Ph.D. Seminar is now a big success which allows the students to meet, present their currents works and results, better know themselves, and get a wide scientific culture from applied mathematics to computer science, modeling issues to simulation techniques, software environments to biology and physics, etc.
Among the long list of their successes I emphasize the 2017 MOMI workshop.
Joined by Dora Karvouniari, Dimitra Politaki, Milica Tomasevic, and Eleni Vatamidou they organized this meeting to help the Ph.D. students to improve their knowledge of industrial research."
