Florence Bertails-Descoubes: From a real object to its virtual avatar

Martin Bellet / Citizen Press - 12/12/2014

For the experts in computer animation, simulating the movement of hair and clothing in the most realistic way possible is a more complex problem than it first appears. The work carried out by Florence Bertails-Descoubes in the inverse modelling of irregular dynamic systems could just be the solution they are looking for. She has recently been awarded a Starting Grant by the European Research Council (ERC).

Steve Kremer: how can we make electronic voting secure?

Olivier Constant - 9/02/2015

Although electronic voting is still relatively uncommon, it could soon replace the traditional ballot paper. Faced with the risk of piracy, we require new digital tools in order to guarantee voting probity. This is the subject of the research project being carried out by Steve Kremer, recipient of aConsolidator Grantawarded by the European Research Council (ERC).

Vadim Lyubashevsky: making cryptographic systems more secure

12/01/2015

Protected by cryptography, what we share over the Net is secure… for the time being. Vadim Lyubashevsky is a researcher working in the Cascade project team. He designs data protection protocols with improved security. His project is supported by the European Research Council (ERC), which has awarded him aStarting Grant.

Democratizing Proof Assistants

Jean-Michel Prima - 10/02/2015

Proving theorem and software correctness are the two raisons d'être of proof assistants. Coq, the result of a 25-year project driven by Inria, has become a preeminent tool in this domain. Yet, a recent breakthrough in mathematics by Fields medal Vladimir Voevosdky has opened the door to a huge improvement of formal verification. Inria scientist Nicolas Tabareau is being granted funding by the European Research Council (ERC) in order to explore how this finding could indeed pave the way to a novel and much enhanced version of Coq. As he explains, this work is expected to have a very strong impact and spread the use of this proof assistant across the industry.

ERC Consolidator Grant for Martin Vohralík

Hélène Robak - 29/01/2015

Can we guarantee the accuracy in numerical simulations? And can we make the different components of numerical algorithms interact more efficiently so as to speed-up the present-day simulations up to orders of magnitude? These are the questions asked in the European Research Council (ERC) consolidator project GATIPOR (Guaranteed fully adaptive algorithms with tailored inexact solvers for complex porous media flows) of Martin Vohralík.

Visual recognition made super scalable

Jean-Michel Prima - 13/11/2013

Freshly granted funding by the European Research Council (ERC), Inria scientist Hervé Jégou is to start a new project meant to explore methodologies that could automatically discover visual links between images. As he explains, a paradigm shift is needed to overcome the scalability problem resulting from the cross-matching of all the images within a giant collection.

Provide mathematical tools to the community of physics researchers

8/11/2013

For Antoine Gloria, bringing the benefit of mathematics to the physical sciences is more than just a passion: it's a calling. His work in the area of composite materials, which is supported jointly by Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) and Inria Lille, led to his being awarded the Starting Grant in 2013 by the European Research Council (ERC).
