The Inria International partnership AMICI follows up from the INRIA Associated Team SIMBIOSI that started in January of 2009 and ended in December of 2011. The three coordinators of SIMBIOSI were Marie-France Sagot for the INRIA, Alberto Marchetti-Spaccamela (University of Rome La Sapienza) and Leen Stougie (Free University of Amsterdam and CWI).
The members of AMICI are the three above, together with the whole of BAMBOO, plus:
- Nadia Pisanti and Roberto Grossi from the university of Pisa, Italy, with whom we have been collaborating since the PhD of Nadia Pisanti in 2002′
- Pierluigi Crescenzi from the University of Florence, Italy, who joined the Associated Team SIMBIOSI as collaborator early on in its creation (in mid-2009). He is also since March 2011 co-supervisor of two PhD students (Gustavo Sacomoto and Beatrice Donati) with Marie-France Sagot (PhDs funded by the ERC AdG Sisyphe).
BAMBOO is currently proposing an evolution of AMICI towards another structure. More information about this will be indicated here as soon as it is available.
