Laurent Fargues, Jean-François Le Gall, Benoît Perthame et Bertrand Toën, were awarded a ERC Advanced Grant. Congratulations to all four of them!
Julien Jouganous was awarded the 2016 'Le Monde' Research Prize for his PhD entitled Lung metastases growth modeling and simulation, which he did under the supervision of Olivier Saut at the Institut de Mathématiques de Bordeaux (CNRS, Université de Bordeaux, Bordeaux INP), and which he defended on September 2015, 23.
The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters awards the 2017 Abel Prize to Yves Meyer, Centre de mathématiques et de leurs applications (CMLA, CNRS & École normale supérieure Paris-Saclay), "for his pivotal role in the development of the mathematical theory of wavelets".
Congratulations to this remarkable mathematician !
Sharing Science: towards new horizons
is the motto of the 8th EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF), which will take place in Toulouse (France) in July 2018, 9-14th. Its scientific program will address the following themes:
Descartes' rule is one of the first main result of algebraic geometry. Formulated in 1637 in the appendix entitled "La Géométrie" of the famous "Discours de la Méthode" [S], this rule gives an upper bound of the number of positive roots of a polynomial of one real-valued variable. The formulation of a similar rule for multi-variate polynomials has gone through new developements with the works of Frédéric Bihan and his collaborators who propose in [BD] a new upper bound for the number of roots with positive coordinates.
The Interreg Sudoe Programme supports regional development in Southwest Europe financing transnational projects through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
The Programme promotes transnational cooperation to solve common problems in Southwest Europe, such as low investment in research and development, weak competitiveness of the small and medium-sized enterprises and exposure to climate change and environmental risks.
The "ERC Week” will run from the 13 to the 19 March to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the European Research Council. Since 2007, the ERC has had a considerable impact on the European research landscape, funding almost 7,000 researchers in ten years.
The French Embassy and the FACE Foundation are launching the Thomas Jefferson Fund to support new, innovative collaborations between promising young researchers in France and the United States in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), Humanities and Social Sciences (SSH) and Sciences for Society (interdisciplinary STEM-SSH projects). The Thomas Jefferson Fund will fund up to nine original, two-year collaborative projects, addressing the most pressing global challenges.
Modelling-Simulations-Optimization (MSO) initiatives aim to favour interaction between calculus expertise in French mathematical laboratories and the industrial world. French MSO initiatives are about to set up as a network in order to enhance their visibility and to better fulfil the enterprises' expectations.
