International Initiatives


  • Project: Analyzing big data with temporal graphs and machine learning. Application to urban traffic analysis and protein function annotation.

  • Participants: Sabeur Aridhi (PI), Marie-Dominique Devignes, Malika Smaïl-Tabbone, Bishnu Sarker, Wissem Inoubli, Dave Ritchie.

  • Partners: LORIA/Inria NGE, Federal University of Ceará (UFC).

  • Value: 20 k€.

  • Duration: 2017–2020.

  • Description: This project aims to investigate and propose solutions for both urban traffic-related problems and protein annotation problems. In the case of urban traffic analysis, problems such as traffic speed prediction, travel time prediction, traffic congestion identification and nearest neighbors identification will be tackled. In the case of protein annotation problem, protein graphs and/or protein–protein interaction (PPI) networks will be modeled using dynamic time-dependent graph representations.

Inria Associate Teams Not Involved in an Inria International Labs

  • Project: FlexMol. Algorithms for Multiscale Macromolecular Flexibility:

  • Participants: Maria-Elisa Ruiz-Echartea, Dave Ritchie, Isaure Chauvot de Beauchêne.

  • Partners: Nano-D, ChaconLab team, Rocasolano Institute of Physical Chemistry (IQFR-CSIC), Madrid, Spain, as non-beneficiary associated lab.

  • Description: Developing representations of molecular flexibility at different scales, for the 3D modeling of multi-molecular assemblies.
