VERSIM McLeod Modeling and Simulation NetworkJuly 2005 The French Research Group VERSIM VERs une théorie de la SIMulation "towards a simulation theory" http://www.lsis.org/versim
VERSIM McLeod Modeling and Simulation NetworkJuly 2005 VERSIM I3 Research Group http://sis.univ-tln.fr/gdri3/ (created in 1998) National Center of Scientific Research www.cnrs.fr/STIC/ STIC STIC Department (Sciences and Technologies of Information and Communication) www.cnrs.fr/STIC/ Organization VERSIM Group http://www.lsis.org/versim (created in 2004)
VERSIM McLeod Modeling and Simulation NetworkJuly 2005 CNRS The French National Center for Scientific Research publicly-funded research organization 26,000 employees (among which 11,600 researchers and 14,400 engineers and technical and administrative staff) 1,260 service and research units budget for the year 2004 = 2.214 billion euros Vocation producing knowledge and making it available to society definig new domains of scientific investigation by developing collaboration between specialists from different fields of expertise: interactions between physics and chemistry of living forms, materials, biotechnologies, environment, urban matters, health, telecommunications and communication. 8 scientific departments that cover all fields of knowledge Nuclear and Particle Physics Physical Sciences and Mathematics Communication and Information Science and Technology STIC Engineering Sciences, Chemical Sciences Earth Sciences and Astronomy, Life Sciences Humanities and Social Sciences.
VERSIM McLeod Modeling and Simulation NetworkJuly 2005 I3 Research Group of CNRS Information-Interaction-Intelligence One of the 5 research groups of the STIC department of CNRS whose vocation is to mobilize researchers on precise themes The objectives of the group consist in defining and acquiring expertise on concepts, methodologies, technics sharing between various communities assembling researchers and industrialists around projects about 900 students, researchers and industrialists, from more than 150 research and development units of CNRS, INRIA and INSERM
VERSIM McLeod Modeling and Simulation NetworkJuly 2005 VERSIM Objectives to identify the elements common to future french research about Modeling and Simulation and about Computer Aided System Theory to describe the state of the art in France to give the precise situation of M&S french research within the M&S international research to participate in projects and form research networks Fundamentally multidisciplinary group Accessible for any researcher from any domain that uses or develops problem solution methods based on simulation
VERSIM McLeod Modeling and Simulation NetworkJuly 2005 Membership Leaders Pr. Norbert Giambiasi (University of Aix-Marseilles, France) Pr. David Hill (University of Clermont-Ferrand, France) 58 registered members 19 scientific laboratories and DGA
VERSIM McLeod Modeling and Simulation NetworkJuly 2005 Working The works are realized both on collaboration via internet and on the form of meetings The reunions use to take place in any site in France : Marseilles, Montpellier, Toulouse, Sophia-Antipolis, … The mean number of participants of each reunion is 25 persons. The frequency is about three reunions a year
VERSIM McLeod Modeling and Simulation NetworkJuly 2005 Activities / Results Cooperating with our colleagues at the University of Genova in creating and organizing the International Mediterranean Modeling Multiconference I3M. The first conference was held in Genoa last year. This years conference will be held in Marseilles. C ooperating with Pr. Tuncer Oren on the french part of the French-English-Turkish M&S dictionary to be published soon. Defining an M&S terminological dictionary. Working on the development of a French M&S course as part of our M&S curriculum development. Working on formal integration and virtual laboratories.
