Berlin's Anthropocene Curriculum Campus: participation of 2 of our researchers
One works on Big Data, the other studies the forces involved in plant development: Stéphane Grumbach, a computer science researcher, and Olivier Hamant, a biologist, will attend this year's Anthropocène Curriculum, the international conference held in Berlin from April 15 to 21. Ioan Negrutiu, director of the Michel Serres Institute, is a member of the scientific committee, in association with the Max Planck Institute for the History of Sciences, and various other German institutions (universities, research centers, museums, etc.).
This world-class event is a must for researchers from various fields to reflect on humanity's impact on the planet. As part of this year's Technosphere project, our two researchers will work with English, American, Japanese, German researchers and artists to lead three half-days of debate and study as part of a seminar on the theme "Algorithmic Intermediation and Smartness". This event will also feed into an academic project on the Anthropocene for all of the ENS de Lyon's Bachelor's and Master's students starting next fall, as well as an international research project on natural resources and their evaluation, led by the Michel Serres Institute.
Olivier Hamant is a biologist at the ENS de Lyon's laboratory of Plant Reproduction and Development (RDP); Stéphane Grumbach is a researcher with the French Institute for Research in Computer Science and Automation (Inria) and the director of the IXXI research center.
