The fifth Inria@SiliconValley workshop with Californian partners


The annual BIS  (Berkeley-Inria-Stanford) workshop is part of the Inria@SiliconValley program. It is co-organized by Inria and its partners in California.  The objectives of the workshop are to present the current status of ongoing scientific collaborations and to work on proposals for future ambitious joint projects. BIS’2015 is organized in partnership with CITRIS, The Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society, and the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs (see the page of The Science Office @ the French Consulate in San Francisco) and will be hosted by CITRIS on May 12-14, 2015 on the University of California Berkeley Campus.
