inHEART, using 3D for better and more reliable cardiac procedures


inHEART is a start-up project created by Inria Sophia Antipolis- Méditerranée, the University Hospital Centre in Bordeaux and the University of Bordeaux via the Liryc University Hospital Institute. Its aim is to build on several years of top quality research and development in the field of computer-guided procedures for cardiac rhythm disorders using 3D medical imagery.



Scientific award

Xavier Pennec Fellow of the MICCAI scientific society


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

Michel Buffa honoured at the 2017 WebAudio Conference


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.

PhD Seminars Anniversary

PhD students from Sophia Antipolis organize, exchange, communicate

Communication department - 1/09/2017

"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."
