Sparse Days Meeting 2015 in Saint-Girons III, France

Sparse Days Meeting 2015 in Saint-Girons III, France
June 28th-July 2nd, 2015


The annual CERFACS Sparse Days in 2015 was much enhanced by scheduling it within the CIMI semester (http://cimi-semester-hpc.fr) working in collaboration with our colleagues in the CERFACS-IRIT common lab. There were over 100 attendees, half of whom were from outside France and a quarter from the United States. The meeting was held in St Girons, Ariege entitled « Sparse Days in St Girons III » in recognition of two previous conferences that we organized in St Girons in 1994 and 2003.

The meeting was held from Sunday 28th June until Thursday 2nd July and was memorable both for the excellence of the 40 talks and 2 posters as well as the fantastic hospitality of our hosts in St Girons and Ariege. Such was the success of the meeting that we do not feel inclined to wait as long as ten years to repeat the event and venue so watch this space around 2020 for St Girons IV!

Copies of the presentations at the meeting are available from the website.

New research group “Theory and Climate”

Mélanie ROCHOUX |  1 February 2021

CECI is involved in the development of a new research group (GDR for “Groupement De Recherche”) entitled “Theory and Climate”. This GDR aims at bringing together the entire community of theorists (mathematicians, physicists, computer scientists, data scientists, etc.) working on climate sciences, with the goal of developing and sharing innovative concepts and tools relevant for a better understanding of climate dynamics. This GDR is interdisciplinary and involves several CNRS research institutes as well as most of French organizations working in these fields. CECI plans to contribute to issues related to climate dynamics and applied mathematics such as data assimilation and machine learning. Moreover, there are strong links between this GDR and the LEFE-INSU actions, in which CECI researchers are active (LEFE-IMAGO and LEFE-MANU actions). More information here:Read more
