Section: Other Grants and Activities
Together with the INRIA project BIPOP, we obtained an associate team called SHARE with the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver, Canada. This project has three foci:
to design enriched geometric and mechanical models for the shape and motion of soft tissues, skin, cloth and hair;
to significantly improve on existing models of human and animal motion;
to model interaction between moving creatures and complex, realistic environments.
In 2009, several researchers from EVASION visited the University of British Columbia: Adrien Bernhardt, Marie-Paule Cani, Lionel Reveret and Damien Rohmer. In the meanwhile several researchers from UBC visited us: Drek Bradley, Tiberius Popa and Michiel van de Panne. It is also to note that Benjamin Gilles, who is postdoctoral researcher from UBC, came to join us and work with Lionel Reveret from January 1st 2009.
