International Research Visitors

Visits of International Scientists

  • Prof. Subrhakanty Dey (University of Uppsala, Sweden) visited the team from June 6th to July 7th, for reserach discussions, in particular with F. Garin and A. Kibangou on privacy issues in cyber-physical systems.

  • Prof. Gerhard Hancke (Dept of Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering, University of Pretoria, South Africa) visited the team and the Doctoral college of UGA in order to set up student exchange program in July 2015.

  • Prof. Paolo Frasca (University of Twente, Enschede, The Netherlands) visited the team for two weeks in October, for research discussions with team members, and in particular with C. Canudas de Wit on open problems in social dynamics related to traffic drivers.

  • Prof. Joao Cesar Moura Mota (Universidade Federal do Ceara, Brazil) visited the team in December 2015 within the framework of the French-Brazilian CAPES-COFECUB project TICO-MED.

  • Tomas Manuel Pippia from University of Pavia, Italy, made his reserach internship for his master thesis in the team, from March to July.

Visits to International Teams

Research stays abroad
  • A. Kibangou visited UC Berkeley during the BIS workshop (Berkeley-Inria-Stanford, May 12-15). During this stay, A. Kibangou participated as a member for the panel dedicated to Urban mobility. He had discussions with G. GOMES (UC Berkeley) on different topics about traffic including flow prediction and interfacing traffic micro-simulator such as AIMSUM with Matlab.

  • C. Canudas de Wit visited UC Berkeley for a week in October. He had research meetings with faculty and students at ITS an PATH, and in particular with prof. Horowitz and dr. Gomes. On Oct 23rd he gave an invited lecture at Institute of Tranpsortation Studies (ITS) and the Transportation Program of the Civil and Enviromental Engineering Department at the University of California, Berkeley, in the ITS tranpsortation seminar program.

  • Various team members attended the IPAM Long Program New Directions in Mathematical Approaches for Traffic Flow Management (http://www.ipam.ucla.edu/programs/long-programs/new-directions-in-mathematical-approaches-for-traffic-flow-management ), at UCLA, Los Angeles. IPAM long programs are a collection of one-week workshops, intertwined with study periods, where participants are encouraged to pursue their own research while interacting with other participants.

    • A. Ladino, 26 Sept. to 24 Oct. (Workshops I Mathematical Foundations of Traffic and II Traffic Estimation, and a study period)

    • P. Grandinetti, 25 Oct. to 20 Nov. (Workshops III Traffic Control and IV Decision Support for Traffic, and a study period)

    • C. Canudas de Wit, Oct. 10-16 and 25-31 (Workshops II Traffic Estimation and III Traffic Control)

    • F. Garin, Oct. 25-30 (Workshop III Traffic Control)
