3 October, Paris hosted the sixth CES Unveiled event. Attending this major preparatory show for the world-famous CES Las Vegas was a new startup from La Rochelle, Ullo, which brought a project created as part of an exemplary partnership with the Potioc project team from Inria’s Bordeaux - Sud-Ouest (BSO) Research Centre.

Stéphanie Challita et Fanny Orlhac, deux chercheuses Inria comptent parmi les lauréates de la nouvelle édition des Bourses France L’Oréal-UNESCO « Pour les Femmes et la Science ». Ces bourses récompensent les travaux de recherche de jeunes scientifiques singulièrement talentueuses. En soutenant la place des femmes dans la recherche, et en mettant en avant les portraits de ces chercheuses, ce programme a aussi pour objectif d’inciter plus de jeunes filles à se tourner vers les sciences.
Being able to reproduce the results obtained is a major challenge in biomedical research, and an essential stage in drawing lasting conclusions from them. Olivier Colliot and Stanley Durrleman's ARAMIS team is an Inria team (based at the ICM (Brain and Spine Institute), jointly with the CNRS, Inserm and Sorbonne University) that has developed a set of software tools enabling reproducibility in medical decision-making support system evaluation studies. The results are published in the journal Neuroimage.
This special edition of Plug'In is published on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the creation of the Inria Bordeaux-Sud-Ouest center.
More than ever, its vocation is to implement a dynamic, to provoke meetings, to encourage projects. For that we offer you a trip back in time, to the origins of the creation of the center and the first academic and industrial collaborations, before returning to the present passing through a decade of innovation and discoveries. Then we meet the collaborators of the center: women and men of science of course, but also all people exercising research support functions.
The technology transfer and the stakes of research in digital sciences finally conclude this issue with an opening to the future: we hope that this magazine will make you want to start new collaboration, to study in digital sciences, or event create your start-up!
We wish you a very good read.
As a result of the collaboration between Software Heritage, HAL-Inria and the CCSD (Centre for Direct Scientific Communication), HAL is opening up to a new type of scientific data: software. Henceforth, researchers therefore have the possibility of depositing source code whilst contributing to the software heritage built up by Software Heritage.
Nayat Sanchez-Pi has just been appointed head of Inria Chile, an international laboratory created in 2012 to facilitate Franco-Chilean scientific and industrial exchanges.

Inria is pleased to announce the launch of the scikit-learn initiative, a partnership with companies using scikit-learn. Its objectives are to support the development of this reference software: sustaining its high quality and adding new functionalities. Scikit-learn is a library in Python, an high-level programming language. It is dedicated to statistical learning (machine learning) and can be used as middleware, especially for prediction tasks.
Set up by Florian Bernard, a former PhD student on the Memphis project team, the Nurea startup is rewriting all the rules. Between the worlds of research and industry, as well as the fields of aeronautics and aerospace, and medicine, this is the tale of a scientific and entrepreneurial adventure.
Europe - Research
A European consortium led by Inria and funded by the EU ICT H2020 program, TeamPlay aims at developing new techniques that will allow execution time, energy, security and other important non-functional properties of parallel software to be treated as first-class citizens. As Project Coordinator Olivier Zendra points out, this research is expected to have a significant impact on various sectors of the industry. Results will be evaluated through use cases from various domains such as computer vision, cybersecurity, satellites and drones.
