Collaborative space and facilities

Designed to foster collaborations, the institute boasts informal meeting spaces, state-of-the-art A/V capabilities, and an immersive visualisation room, all shared with SCAI, the center for Artificial Intelligence.
The institute offices and meeting rooms are located on the Campus Pierre et Marie Curie (Jussieu), building Esclangon, 1st floor, facing the Jardin des Plantes, along Cuvier street.

Booking Rooms

Our meeting and seminar rooms have to be requested through the online room reservation service. Rooms are booked in order of priority: ISCD and SCAI staff and affiliates, academics, university, partners.

HPC and software resources

  • HP-CAVe a high performance computing (HPC) platform hosted by Sorbonne Université.
  • Tinker HP a free molecular dynamics software package developed by Prof. Piquemal’s group at LCT-ISCD. It solves multiscale simulations of large complex systems with advanced polarizable force fields on parallel computers;
  • Basilisk a free software developed by Stephane Popinet et al. at D’Alembert laboratory (SU), for the solution of partial differential equations on adaptive Cartesian meshes;
  • MMG Mesh Adaptation an open source software for simplicial remeshing and mesh adaptation. An open-source consortium project is ensuring that Mmg remains a non-competitive and multidisciplinary tool as well as a research framework;
  • ISCD Toolbox Repository provides a collection of open-source finite element solvers for solving Partial Differential Equations on unstructured meshes (fluid mechanics, elasticity, shape optimization, transport).

This note sets out to detail what big data analysis is and presents the possible uses of these technologies, whether it is to make management more efficient, improve services rendered or prevent phenomena. harmful (epidemics, crime, etc.). It sets out the main difficulties associated with these uses: guaranteeing confidentiality and respect for privacy. Finally, it shows how different countries and companies have already invested in this sector.

The National Research Agency (ANR) notebooks explore thematic issues transversal to the various calls for projects of the Agency. They put into perspective the research, innovations and technological advances in progress in a specific field and offer a synthetic presentation of projects funded by the ANR, in order to deepen knowledge in this field.
