  Vincent Calvez: Organization of a thematic trimester in Lyon "Mathematical Biology 2013" (ENS and Univ. Lyon 1): 3 months, 4 conferences, 1 workshop and 1 summer school, more than 400 participants, focus on interdisciplinary conferences with biologists and theoretical physicists (evolutionary biology, cell biology, drug development, system biology).

  Paul Vigneaux and Vincent Calvez are editors of the CEMRACS 2009 - Mathematical Modelling in Medicine Proceedings. ESAIM. Vol. 30, August 2010, 165 pages.

  Organization of Conferences :

In 2008/2009, Vincent Calvez and Paul Vigneaux co-organize the CEMRACS 2009 - Mathematical Modelling in Medicine, 14th edition of this 6-week international summer school (at the CIRM, Marseille, France, July 20 to August 28, 2009). CEMRACS is supported by the SMAI (French Industrial and Applied Mathematics Society).

In 2010, Paul Vigneaux co-organizes the 8th JERAA, 25-26 Nov., a two days conference on Partial Differential Equations gathering the community from Rhône-Alpes-Auvergne (France).

  Seminars :

Since September 2008, Paul Vigneaux and Vincent Calvez co-organize the "Modelling and Partial Differential Equations" seminar, joint with ENS de Lyon and Institut Camille Jordan (4 talks by month, from September to June).

  Commissions and Boards :

  • Paul Vigneaux is member of the Board of MILYON, the Laboratory of Excellence (Labex) in Mathematics of Lyon. This Labex aims at federating international research, higher education and society activities.

  • Paul Vigneaux is member of the Hiring Commissions (“Comités de Sélection”) at the University of Clermont-Ferrand 2, Lyon 1, Montpellier 2, Centrale Nantes, INSA Lyon and ENS de Lyon : it consists in the selection of candidates for permanent positions in the Mathematics department.

  • Paul Vigneaux is member of the Boards of the Numerical Modelling Center (PSMN) of Lyon, of UMPA, the mathematics research lab at ENS de Lyon, of the Board of the Department of Mathematics (teaching) at ENS de Lyon.

  • Emmanuel Grenier created, together with Didier Bresch, the first national network gathering most of the french academic teams working on mathematical models for life sciences (GDR Mabem 2008-2011). He is in the scientific board of the GDR Metice, successor of GDR Mabem.
