"Connect the Unconnected"

You are cordially invited to attend the closing event of the Digital World Forum (DWF) EU project, on Wednesday 30 September 2009, in Brussels, Belgium

The 5th International Workshop on Software Evolution, organised by the ERCIM Working Group on Software Evolution, will take place on 24-25 August 2009 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, co-located with the 7th joint ESEC/FSE Conference.

ERCIM, the European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics, recently celebrated its 20th anniversary in Paris. The event, co-hosted by INRIA, included presentations by renowned personalities from research and industry, and representatives from the ERCIM community.

ERCIM aims to foster collaborative work within the European ICT research community and to increase co-operation with European industry. Leading research institutes from twenty European countries are members of ERCIM, which therefore represents a force of more than 12,000 scientists and engineers.

GridCOMP, Grid Programming with COMPonents, to stand out as an Advanced Component platform for an Effective Invisible Grid.

GridCOMP is a Specific Targeted Research Project on Grid programming with components, partially funded by the European Commission in the sixth Framework Programme (FP6) from June 2006 to February 2009.

According to Denis Caromel, INRIA, Scientific Coordinator, “The main goal of the project was the design and implementation of a component based framework suitable to support the development of efficient grid applications. The produced framework implements the "invisible grid" concept: abstract away grid related implementation details (hardware, OS, authorization and security, load, failure, etc.) that usually require high programming efforts to be dealt with. Therefore, GridCOMP makes it possible to seamlessly compose applications and services deployed on small to large scale infrastructures.“

From the President

ERCIM has recently celebrated its 20th anniversary: details of the website with all the information about the event is presented below. Reaching 20 years of cooperating for excellence in IT and Applied Mathematics is a significant milestone and a time to reflect on past success and simultaneously plan for the future with both predictions of future challenges and plans for meeting them. Indeed the Strategy Task Group of the ERCIM Board of Directors is considering various radical futures and in September we will meet with our external advisory committee to take this work forward.

E-India 2009 will focus on six emerging application domains of ICT for Development:
• eGov India
• Digital learning India
• eHealth India
• Indian Telecentre Forum
• mConnect India
• eAgriculture India

French press article on the ERCIM-ETSI Seminar by Jean-Pierre Largillet of SophiaNet, le 30 mars 2009

Les deux organismes phares de la technopole organisent jeudi et vendredi avec la Communauté Européenne un séminaire sur ""Bio-ICT : The Heart in the Computer". Histoire de montrer qu'en mettant en synergie recherche et innovation, l'Europe peut faire des miracles...

Deux avancées sont à souligner dans le prochain séminaire qu'organisent l'ETSI (European Telecommunications Standards Institute) et l'ERCIM (Consortium Européen de Recherche en Informatique et Mathématiques), deux organismes phares de Sophia Antipolis, les 2 et 3 avril dans les locaux de l'ETSI. La première tient dans le thème même du séminaire : "Bio-ICT : The Heart in the Computer" qui montre ce que l'informatique peut apporter au domaine de la santé.
