The Center of Modeling, Simulation and Interactions (MSI)


 Mastering the methods and tools of modeling and simulation, as well those for structuring and exploiting data, presents many challenges for scientists in a variety of current and future areas of research and innovation. Thus, the UCAJEDI IDEX project has promoted the creation of the Center of Modeling, Simulation, and Interactions (MSI), which is a member of the MSO (Modeling, Simulation, Optimization) network.

The Center of Modeling, Simulation, and Interactions offers:

  • High-level training programs and the development of strong links with local industry, by supporting the organization of thematic schools for public and industrial partners on various key themes (Deep Learning, Cybersecurity, HPC, etc.) for the SUD Region (Région Sud-Provence-Alpes-Côte-d'Azur).
  • Scientific workshops in which key players from the Université Côte d’Azur gather to discuss modeling, simulation, data analysis, computation, and visualization.
  • Financial support through calls for proposals so as to develop transdisciplinary projects internally between laboratories of the ComUE UCA or externally between a ComUE UCA laboratory and an industrial partner.

To build a transversal scientific and technical approach that specifically targets the academic and business communities, the MSI also relies on a team of expert engineers who are dedicated to working on research projects within the Université Côte d’Azur.

Some of these experts support various thematic centers of expertise requiring strong skills in modeling, simulation and data science.

Thus far, three centers are emerging, dedicated to the processing and exploitation of data from:

  • the medical field (Medical Data Laboratory);
  • the Social Sciences and Humanities;
  • the Sciences of the Planet and the Universe.
