Teaching - Supervision - Juries


  • Marie-Paule Cani is responsible for two courses at Ensimag/Grenoble-INP: 3D Graphics (a course that attracts about 80 master 1 students per year) and IRL (introduction à la recherche en laboratoire), a course enabling engineering students to work on a personal project in a research lab during one semester, to get an idea of what academic research is.

  • Stefanie Hahmann is co-responsible for the department MMIS (Images and Applied Maths) at Grenoble INP with 120 students. (http://ensimag.grenoble-inp.fr/cursus-ingenieur/modelisation-mathematique-images-simulation-124674.kjsp)

    Stefanie Hahmann had teaching load of 192h per year. She is responsible for 3 courses at Ensimag/Grenoble INP: Numerical Methods (240 students, 3rd year Bachelor level), Geometric Modeling (60 students, Master 1st year) and Surface Modeling (30 students, Master 2nd year).

  • Olivier Palombi is responsible for the French Campus numérique of anatomy. He is responsible and national leader of the project SIDES (http://side-sante.org/). All the French medical schools (43) have planed to use the same e-learning framework (SIDES) to manage evaluations and to create a large shared database of questions.

  • Damien Rohmer is coordinator of the Math, Signal, Image program at the engineering school CPE Lyon in supervising the scientific and technical content of the program. He is also co-responsible for the Image, Modeling & Computing specialization program attracting 35 students per year. He gives, and is responsible for one Computer Science class (130 student, 3rd year Bachelor level), an introductory Computer Graphics class (110 students, Master 1st year), and 5 specialization classes on C++ programming, OpenGL programming, 3D modeling, animation and rendering (35 students, Master 1st and 2nd year). He coordinates the association between CPE and the new computer graphics master program ID3D (Image, Développement et Technologie 3D) from University Lyon1. He also coordinates the association between CPE and the Gamagora computer game project.

  • Rémi Ronfard taught courses in Computational modeling of narrative texts, movies and games, MSTII Doctoral School, University Grenoble Alpes (18 hours in March-April 2017); Game Engine Programming, M2R IMAGINA, University of Montpellier (36 hours in October-December 2017) and Advanced 3D animation, M2R MOSIG, University of Grenoble Alpes (12 hours in December 2017).

  • Jean-Claude Léon is in charge of the module Mechanical Systems at Grenoble-INP ENSE3 (300 students, 64h, coordination of three courses)

  • Frederic Devernay teaches Computer Science at CPP - La prépa des ING, Grenoble (50h, 200 students).

Note that MOSIG is a joint master program between University Joseph Fourier (UJF) and Institut Polytechnique de Grenoble (INPG) taught in English since it hosts a number of internal students. It belongs to the doctoral school MSTII.
