I am in Rennes for the University Institute of France annual conference on June 6-8, 2016.
The University Institute of France (IUF) rewards each year a hundred laureates among professors of French universities. IUF members have less teaching assignment and more time for research, as well as funding for their missions.
I was honored to be laureate in 2013, and am now part of the IUF administrative board, where I notably help select the international jury that chooses laureates.
IUF members gather each year for a conference. This year’s theme is “The Image”; from Mathematics to Philosophy and from Astrophysics to Anthropology, conferences are rich and fascinating!
