Inria International Partners
Declared Inria International Partners
We have submitted a proposal for an Inria North-European Lab Lille-Oxford, which has been accepted. The main people involved are Joachim Niehren (leader), Pierre Bourhis and Angela Bonifati, but the cooperation is equally relevant for Iovka Boneva, Aurélien Lemay, Slawek Staworko, Sophie Tison, Radu Ciucanu (PhD student). The Oxford database group (http://www.cs.ox.ac.uk/isg/db ) is one of the top database groups world wide. The main persons involved will be Michael Benedikt (leader), Dan Olteanu, Andreas Pieris (postdoc). Further promising cooperation opportunities are to be explored with members of Georg Gottlob's ERC project DiaDem (http://www.cs.ox.ac.uk/projects/DIADEM/index.html ) on semantics-based information ex- traction.
