On 01/07/2022 from 10:00 to 11:30. Place: Nautibus, C5
We have the pleasure to welcome Pr James Gain (Cape Town) for a LIRIS seminar around the authoring of digital terrains in room C5 in Nautibus, on Friday, July 1st, at 10am. Abstract: Simulated natural phenomena, including terrain, river networks, ecosystems, and weather effects, are an essential feature in many games, films, and virtual environments. However, creating such scenes using a traditional geometric modelling pipeline places a considerable burden on digital artists. In this talk two case studies in ecosystem and weather modelling will be presented to support the contention that in building more effective modelling frameworks the focus should be on a balance of visual plausibility, computational efficiency and authoring control. Furthermore, the best way to achieve this is through a mix of procedural, simulation and data-driven approaches, coupled with sketching and painting interfaces with which digital artists have a natural familiarity. Bio: Prof James Gain is a Professor of Computer Science at the University of Cape Town, South Africa. He received his BSc(Hons) and MSc degrees in Computer Science from Rhodes University, South Africa, in 1994 and 1996, respectively. In 2000 he obtained his PhD entitled “Enhancing Spatial Deformation for Virtual Sculpting” from the University of Cambridge. He is a former president of the African Computer Graphics Association (Afrigraph) and a winner of the University of Cape Town Distinguished Teacher’s Award. Prof Gain's research is primarily focused on the computer science domains of computer graphics, high-performance computing, human-computer interaction, virtual reality and visualization, with cross-disciplinary application. Within computer graphics he focuses on procedural and geometric modelling as a means of empowering computer animators to create natural scenes and objects more effectively. In the area of high-performance computing his expertise is in accelerating computational science problems using graphical processing units, with a particular focus on radio astronomy. Similarly, with respect to visualization, he is interested in the visualization of computational science datasets, in fields such as astronomy, geomatics and computational chemistry.Read more… Share

Since their emergence, crypto-currencies have attracted a lot of attention, both in the public sphere and in the academic world. One of the particularities of this alternative currency is that it is a complex socio-technical system, which cannot be studied or understood from the perspective of a single discipline. Monetary innovation, societal and environmental perspectives, decentralized computing systems, financial issues, legal questions: all these issues are intertwined and require researchers to think outside the box in order to understand the challenges and opportunities offered by crypto-currencies and other digital alternative currencies. The objective of these days is to bring together all young researchers -doctoral students, post-doctoral students- interested and working on the subject in France or in the French-speaking world, to discuss their respective work in a friendly atmosphere and a spirit of openness, conducive to the discovery of new areas of research and the launch of collaborations.Read more… Share

To overcome the lack of conviviality and togetherness, the LIRIS management thought of setting up breakfasts. This is a warm moment designed to create a close relationship between all LIRIS staff, regardless of their employer (CNRS, Lyon 1, Lyon 2, INSA, ECL, other partners (INRIA, Lyon 3, CPE, etc.) or their status (trainees, post-doctoral students, doctoral students, engineers, technical or administrative staff, senior researchers, university professors, researchers, research directors).Read more… Share

On 01/02/2022 from 09:30 to 16:30. Place: Salle Fontanes (Bât. Darwin) et C1 (Nautibus) à Lyon 1
Mardi 1er février de 9h30 à 16h30 se déroulera la 14ème édition de la journée des thèses du LIRIS. Le format de la journée a subi quelques évolutions cette année pour mettre en valeur les thématiques des équipes et les synergies au sein de chaque pôle scientifique. Pour cette 14ème édition, les doctorants en D2 présenteront leur travail sur un format court à l'oral (10 min de prise de parole partagée entre présentation et questions). Tout le monde est convié à cet événement annuel incontournable pour nos doctorants et permanents. Sous réserve de nouvelles contraintes sanitaires, la journée se déroulera en présentiel dans les salles Fontanes (Bâtiment Darwin) et C1 (Nautibus) à l'université Lyon 1 qui pourront accueillir chacune une quarantaine de personnes simultanément. Nous vous présentons nos meilleurs vœux pour cette nouvelle année 2022 et pour chacun de vous la joie de vous épanouir et de réussir dans vos projets !Read more… Share
