Collaboration with Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, San Paolo

Patrick Rives and Renato Martins have strong collaborations with two research groups at Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (UFMG), Brazil. The research topics of CHORALE have a large coverage and share common interests with ongoing projects at these groups.

In this context, Patrick Rives spent two months (Nov-Dec 2018) on a Chair Position at UFMG conjointly funded by Le Ministère des Affaires étrangères (France) and UFMG (Brazil). During his stay, he worked with Prof. Alessandro Correa Victorino in the domain of advanced perception for autonomous vehicles.

One objective of his visit was to initiate a long-term scientific collaboration between UFMG and Inria, based on scientific internships of researchers and PhD students (co-tutelle). Originally, this collaboration should be funded by the CAPES-COFECUB International Program. Unfortunately, due to the political changes in Brazil, this project of collaboration is still pending.

Renato Martins, for his part, is a former postdoctoral researcher in the Computer Vision and Robotics Laboratory - VeRLab (UFMG), where he is currently an external collaborator. He actively collaborates on computer vision, perception and robotic vision with Prof. Erikson R. Nascimento, whose research interests and expertise spans from Computer Vision to Computer Graphics.
