Leadership within the Scientific Community

  • Member of the steering committee of the International Conference on Grammatical Inference [F. Coste]

  • The team was involved in the foundation of a national working group on the symbolic study of dynamical systems named bioss [web access]. The group gathers more than 170 scientists, from computer science to biology. Three meetings were organized this year (Rennes, Marseille, Paris). The group is supported by two French National Research Networks: bioinformatics (GDR BIM : bioinformatique moléculaire) and informatics-mathematics (GDR IM : Informatique Mathématique).
