Depth Imaging Partnership

Magique-3D maintains active collaborations with Total. In the context of Depth Imaging, Magique-3D coordinates research activities dealing with the development of high-performance numerical methods for solving wave equations in complex media. This project has involved 2 other Inria Team-Projects (Hiepacs and Nachos) which have complementary skills in mathematics, computing and in geophysics. DIP is fully funded by Total by the way of an outline agreement with Inria .

In 2014, the second phase of DIP has begun. Lionel Boillot has been hired as engineer to work on the DIP platform. 4 PhD students have defended their PhD in 2015 and they have now post-doctoral researchers in Europe. DIP is currently employing 2 PhD students and one post-doctoral researcher.

ANR Num4Sun

The ANR has launched a specific program for supporting and promoting applications to European or more generally International projects. Magique-3D has been selected in 2016 after proposing a project to be applied as a FET project on the occasion of a call that will open in 2017 April. This project will gather researchers of the MPS (https://www.mps.mpg.de/en), of the BSC (https://www.bsc.es/), of the BCAM (http://www.bcamath.org/en/), of Heriot-Watt University (https://www.hw.ac.uk/) and Inria teams.

A kick-off meeting has been held in November in Strasbourg. The second one will be held in Paris in March 2017. The project is funded for 18 months starting from August 2016. The funding amounts 30000€.
