Informal International Partners
We maintain a strong line of collaborations with the Technical University Federico Santa María (UTFSM), Valparaíso, Chile. Over the years, this has taken different forms (associated team Manap, Stic AmSud project “AMMA”, Stic AmSud project “DAT”). In 2018, we finished a joint PhD work (co-tutelle PhD of Nicolás Jara), and a new joint PhD will start in 2019 (PhD of Jonathan Olavarría). The first one was on optical network analysis and design; the second one's topic is on modeling evaluation techniques, with focus on Stochastic Activity Networks.
Participation in Other International Programs
ECOS-Sud project MASC: Mathematical Algorithms for Semantic Cognition. MASC is a three-year project (code U17E03) with the Faculty of Sciences of the university of the Republic, in Uruguay, on the application of mathematical modeling tools to a better understanding of a cognitive disease called semantic dementia. This involves Prof. Eduardo Mizraji and Jorge Graneri, a PhD student whose co-advisors are Prof. Mizraji and G. Rubino from Dionysos, plus Pablo Rodríguez Bocca, from the Engineering Faculty of the university of the Republic. Our contribution to this project is around the use of mathematical models of neural structures.
