International Advisory Board

The Advisory Board consists of 10 world leading experts in mathematics and computer science. Its role is to make recommendations on the main scientific orientations of the research and prospective at CIMI, to identify the areas to develop and to suggest strategic priorities. The committee meets once a year, in Toulouse, but is systematically consulted (by email) on any major decision.
