July has been my second month as JSPS fellow in National Institute of Informatics, Tôkyô. I have continued to work on different collaborations here with Japanese researchers, both on bioinformatics (especially in the learning of gene regulatory networks) and systems resilience.
International (peer-reviewed) conferences
I got two new accepted papers:
- T. Ribeiro, M. Magnin, and K. Inoue. Learning delayed influence of dynamical systems from interpretation transition. To appear in the 24th International Conference on Inductive Logic Programming. 6 pages (short paper). Nancy, France, September 2014.In a nutshell: This paper addresses the learning of (synchronous) logical programs with delayed influences from state transition diagrams. Delayed influences are captured with an inductive logic programming methodology.
Note: This paper results from my collaboration with Inoue Lab. at NII.
- S. Carolan, M. Magnin and A-L. Kabalu. Sparking a Digital. Revolution: Digital Educational Tools in Fragile and Emerging Learning Contexts. In the 1st International Conference dedicated to Digital Society and Cultures (DI’2014). Nantes, France, September 2014.In a nutshell: This paper discusses the crucial issue of teaching and learning for people in hard environments (e.g. warzones, countries with poor or broken Internet connections, etc.) and gives insights about the added-value of recent e-Learning methods.
Note: This paper results from joint work with Simon Carolan (2nd year PhD student who I co-supervise) and Anne-Laure Kabalu (Master student who Simon and I have co-supervised this Spring).
Meanwhile, the PhD and Master students I co-supervise have presented some recent works at some international conferences and research schools:
- Works presented at ICALT’2014 in Greece:
- S. Carolan, F. Chinesta, C. Evain, M. Magnin, G. Moreau. Extracting domain ontologies from reference books. Short paper and poster in the 14th IEEE International Conference on Advanced Learning Technologies (ICALT’2014). Athens, Greece. July 2014.
- Talks at the 11th Summer School on Modelling and Verification of Parallel Processes (MOVEP’14, July 2014):
- Exhaustive search of dynamical properties in Process Hitting using Answer Set Programming, by E. Ben Abdallah (joint work with M. Folschette, O. Roux and M. Magnin)
- Efficient analysis on very large models, by M. Folschette (joint work with M. Magnin and O. Roux)
