EURASIP Fellow 2019 – Rachid Deriche

Rachid Deriche, directeur de recherche Inria, vient d’être nommé EURASIP Fellow 2019.

La distinction sera officiellement remise lors de la cérémonie d’ouverture et de remise des prix à ‘EUSIPCO 2019 , qui se tiendra à la Corogne (Espagne) du 2 au 6 septembre 2019. Depuis 2007, l’Association européenne pour le traitement du signal (EURASIP) élit chaque année un groupe restreint de quatre chercheurs maximum au rang de EURASIP Fellow . Sur quatre récompenses, deux ont été attribuées aux chercheurs Inria (R. Deriche & J. Zerubia). Cette distinction a pour objectif de saluer des réalisations exceptionnelles dans le domaine du traitement du signal.

Une distinction prestigieuse qui vient récompenser ses travaux  pour sa contribution en imagerie computationnelle du cerveau.

Winter School Workshop on Computational Brain Connectivity Mapping

Winter School Workshop on Computational Brain Connectivity Mapping

CoBCoM – Conference Center Juan les Pins, Côte d’Azur (FR) – 20-24 Nov. 2017

The CoBCoM Winter School Workshop, running from November 20 to 24, 2017 is targeted at graduate students, early career and senior
researchers interested in structural and functional brain connectivities via multi imaging modalities including diffusion MRI, functional MRI, MEG, and EEG.

Held at the Antibes – Juan les Pins Conference Center, in the heart of the French Riviera, the Winter School Workshop will offer several tutorials and advanced lectures from  leading researchers and experts on computational brain connectivity mapping. In addition, it will include sessions dedicated
to poster presentations from participants.

This Winter School Workshop will be an exciting opportunity for graduate students and researchers to learn and exchange about the current trends in computational models of brain connectivity, building dynamic connectomes,
and meet the invited experts and leading researchers spearheading the field.

Have a look at the program for more details and please note that a particular  effort has been paid to welcome you to participate by offering an affordable registration package including admission to all seminars,  all lunches and refreshments, and a wine reception and formal dinner.

This Winter School & Workshop is part of the ERC Advanced grant for the project  CoBCoM “Computational Brain Connectivity Mapping” P.I Rachid Deriche – Project ID: 694665-Funded under: H2020-EU.1.1. – EXCELLENT SCIENCE – European Research Council (ERC).
