World Wide Web Consortium
To strengthen its relations with industry and research activities in France and Europe, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) announces today the opening of a W3C Office in France, hosted by Inria (French National Computer Science Research Institute). To mark the launch, the Office is organizing a session on Open Data at the Open World Forum on 22 September in Paris, in cooperation with Inria and Paris City Hall.
Michel Cosnard, President of Inria was elected President of ERCIM at the last ERCIM Board of Directors, held in Brno, Czech Republic, November 4 2010. Michel Cosnard will take office as ERCIM president 1st January 2011 for a two-year term. Michel will succeed Keith Jeffery who served as ERCIM President since January 2005.
Bull and Inria launch a strategic partnership to tackle the challenges of future exascale supercomputers
Michel Cosnard, Chairman and CEO of Inria (the French National Institute for Research in Computer Science and Control), and Philippe Vannier, Chairman and CEO of Bull, have signed a partnership agreement to carry out joint research in High-Performance Computing (HPC). The main aim of this partnership – between a leading research lab and one of the industry leaders in its field – is to help overcome the challenges posed by the coming generation of ‘exascale’ supercomputers. A roadmap has already been set out, enabling the teams involved to work together on supercomputer architecture, software environments and services.
In the presence of Jean Botti, Technical Director of EADS and Chairman of the EADS Corporate Foundation, Jean-Claude Bermond, Senior Research Scientist at the French National Centre for Scientific Research, and David Guiraud, Senior Research Scientist at Inria respectively received the Grand Prize in Computer Science and the Prize for Information Sciences on December 6.
