Scientific animation

Cafés-focus " are organized regularly, usually focusing on a particular tool or technique.

Scientific seminars are also regularly organized by outside personalities, notably when colleagues are invited to attend project meetings, thesis defenses or special invitations.

LOCIE's JDD(doctoral students' day) is a highlight of the year. Organized in January by 1st-year doctoral students, it enables all young researchers to present their subjects and scientific advances. Organized entirely in English, it facilitates the integration of international students.

A number of less formal working meetings are held regularly on specific scientific topics. They provide input for cross-functional, forward-looking discussions.

Scientific commissions :

Every month, a scientific commission brings together all LOCIE members to discuss scientific topics.

Three times a year, these scientific commissions open up to the outside world, bringing together presentations by a partner researcher and a LOCIE researcher, with an audience extended to our partners on the Bourget du Lac site, at Polytech Annecy-Chambéry, and beyond by videoconference.
