Scientific animation

Focus Cafés are organised regularly, usually targeting a particular tool or technique.

Scientific seminars by external personalities are also regularly organised, in particular when colleagues come for project meetings, thesis defences, or specific 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.

Several working meetings, less formalized, were held regularly on specific scientific topics. These meetings provide an opportunity for cross-cutting and forward-looking discussions.

Scientific commissions :

Every month, a scientific commission gathers all LOCIE members around scientific topics.

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