First meeting of SystemX's industrial partners Club
For the first time, SystemX gathered its industrial partners in order to give feedback on the past year. This first industrial partners club above all got a presentation of the new SystemX's projects currently under construction. This was followed by a sharing moment.
In the context of Paris-Sud Doctoriales, ten Phd students came to SystemX and had the opportunity to discuss with four of SystemX's PhDs during two hours : Nicolas Heulot, Mouah Yagoubi, Aymen Boudguiga, and Boussaad Soualmi. They exchanged good pratices (job applications, thesis valorisation, etc.). The visit ended with a demonstration of a 3D immersive vizualisation device used in the ROM project.
A delegation from DGCIS (General direction for industrial and services competitiveness) came to SystemX on June, 12th. They had the opportunity to discover one of SystemX's emblematic projects: MIC (modelization - interoperability - communication
