In June, Université Côte d'Azur hosted the 25th edition of the "Ecole Jeunes Chercheuses et Chercheurs en Informatique Mathématique"

From June 7 to 11, on the premises of the Laboratory Jean Alexandre Dieudonné, Université Côte d'Azur hosted the Ecole Jeunes Chercheurs et Chercheurs en Informatique Mathématique (EJCIM) of the CNRS Mathematics – Computer Science Research Group.

The 25th edition of this event, which was attended by 75 participants, was organized by the Center of Modeling, Simulation and Interaction (MSI) and by the I3S laboratory.

The school is traditionally composed of morning classes and, in the afternoons, either lectures by young researchers or presentations on different themes (e.g. academic jobs and how to apply; cognitive analysis of thoughts). Each of the five courses (artificial intelligence, game theory, dynamical systems, computation, and randomness) was presented through a double perspective: that of a computer scientist and that of a mathematician. The participants were able to discover multiple interactions both between the two perspectives of the same subject and between the different courses. The school ended with a recreational activity: a treasure hunt organized by the association of doctoral students in information and communication sciences and technologies (ADSTIC).

Further information is available on the school's website and in the book containing the proceedings: "Informatique Mathématique. A photograph in 2022".
