A talk show during UCA "Big Bang" event

Maha ISSAOUI, Institut Pascal PhD at TGI axis, participated in the "BIG BANG" event on October 3rd, 2017 in Clermont-Ferrand, organized by the University Clermont Auvergne to mark its first re-entry.

Maha commented on her thesis work on "Elastography by shear waves: clinical applications in ultrasound during pregnancy". She adressed also more general topics as freedom of expression through her role as an activist during the Tunisian revolution and the place of women in science as an ambassador for the program "For girls and science" of L'Oréal Foundation.

ICDSC 2017 best paper award

The title of "Best PhD Forum Paper ICDSC 2017-USA" was awarded to Lobna Ben KHALIFA for her paper "LobNet: a low-specification camera network using Ant-Cam".
The paper presents a network of so-called stupid cameras named. Each camera is limited in resolution (30x30 pixels) and in embedded processing capacity. The strength of this project lies in the ability to communicate these sensors to each other with the objective of monitoring people in an environment covered by the network.
