Scientific Events Organisation

General Chair, Scientific Chair

The cut locus: A bridge over differential geometry, optimal control and transport, Bangkok, August 2016 (B. Bonnard, J.-B. Caillau, K. Kondo, L. Rifford, M. Tanaka). The conference was organized with the support of the Thai KMITL University and gathered 30 people mostly from Japan, Thailand and France.

Member of the Organizing Committees

Séminaire de géométrie hamiltonienne, Paris 6 (J.-B. Caillau). Bi-mensual seminar.

Journée McTAO, Inria Sophia, January 2016. One day event organized by the team with four invited speakers.

10th International Young Researcher Workshop on Geometry, Mechanics and Control, Paris (IHP), January 2016 (J.-B. Caillau). The workshop gathered 50 people for conferences and mini-courses.

Journées SMAI-MODE, Toulouse, March 2016 (J.-B. Caillau). The conference gathered 140 researchers, and was coupled with a series of two mini-courses co-organized with GdR MOA.

Journée MokaTAO, Inria Paris, October 2016. Two-day event co-organized by Mokaplan (Inria Paris) and McTAO teams, with talks by members of these teams. The two teams share common interests in optimization and optimal transportation.

Groupe de travail "Optimisation et applications", Inria Sophia Antipolis, November 2016 (J.-B. Caillau). One day event with four invited speakers.


Springer briefs

B. Bonnard and J. Rouot, together with M. Chyba, have written the series of notes [28], submitted as Springer briefsPublications. They were the basis of courses at the Phd level given at the University of Burgundy and at the institute of Mathematics for industry at Fukuoka (Japan)

Springer Maths and Industry

B. Bonnard, together with M. Chyba, served as an editor of the volume [18], which gather contributions on the subject by specialists of both academics and space agencies.

Radon Series on Comput. and Applied Math.

J.-B. Caillau, together with M. Bergounioux, G. Peyré, C. Schnörr and T. Haberkorn, served as an editor for the volume [21]. With a focus on the interplay between mathematics and applications of imaging, the first part covers topics from optimization, inverse problems and shape spaces to computer vision and computational anatomy. The second part is geared towards geometric control and related topics, including Riemannian geometry, celestial mechanics and quantum control.


Member of the Editorial Boards

L. Rifford has been a member of the Editorial Board of the journal "Discrete and Continuous Dynamical Systems - A" since 2014.
