International initiatives

Associated team Genepi

Participants : Sylvain Pion, Monique Teillaud.

We are involved in an INRIA associated team with Chee Yap (New York University) around the subjects of generic programming and robustness of geometric algorithms. This work includes the specification of algorithms in terms of concepts of geometries. It also includes the interface between algorithms and data structures, as well as collaborations on robustness issues when dealing with curved objects.

Associated team Geotech

Participants : Pierre Alliez, Jean-Daniel Boissonnat, Mariette Yvinec, Camille Wormser.

Starting from 2007 we have established an INRIA associated team with Craig Gotsman, Gill Barequet and Ayellet Tal from Technion, Israel. Our goal is to collaborate on topics commonly referred to as Geometry Processing. More specifically, we exchange ideas and software on surface reconstruction, geometric routing, quadrangle surface tiling and shape matching.

Associated team TGDA

Participants : Jean-Daniel Boissonnat, Frédéric Chazal, David Cohen-Steiner, Quentin Mérigot, Steve Oudot.

We are involved in an INRIA associated team with Leo Guibas' group at Stanford University since January 2008. Our collaboration focuses on Topological and Geometric Data Analysis. More specifically, we intend to develop new topological and geometric well founded frameworks and algorithms for the analysis of data sets represented by point clouds in possibly non-Euclidean spaces of any dimension.

Scientific and Technological Cooperation between France and Israel

Participants : Jean-Daniel Boissonnat, David Cohen-Steiner, Mariette Yvinec.

In the framework of the Research Networks Program in Medical and Biological Imaging from the High Council for Scientific and Technological Cooperation between France-Israel, we have obtained a financial support for the following project Geometric reconstruction of organs from freehand ultrasound . Our Israelian partner is the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, located in Haifa.

Partenariat Hubert Curien Amadeus with Austria

Participants : Manuel Caroli, Olivier Devillers, Monique Teillaud [ coordinator ] .

The PHC has been funding our project Geometric concepts and cgal for two years (2007-2008). It is a cooperation with the Institute for Software Technology at Graz University of Technology. Several visits were organized. One common paper is currently submitted [39] .
