Some news about my work. It's not complete, it's just what I might
have found important or interesting at the time.
Our (Franklin Delehelle, Patricia Balaresque, Sylvain Cussat-Blanc,
Hervé Luga) paper "ASGART: fast and parallel genome scale segmental
duplications mapping" has been accepted for publications in
Bioinformatics (impact factor: 7). (02/2018)
Publication in the ICGA journal of my article "Who is the master?" about the evaluation of chess players. More informations and a draft of the article are available here. The official press release of CNRS is
and the article in the Journal of the CNRS is
here. There has been various coverage of this article, in the french national press but also on various english websites (Chessbase, etc...)
Publication by Springer of
Paraconsistent Engineering. We have written one of the chapter of
Logic Modeling of Biological Systems. (08/2016)
Our article on the logical modeling of biological system has been
published at the 7th European Symposium on
Computational Intelligence and Mathematics. It is available
. A longer version should be published in PLOS One in a few months
if everything goes well.
Metaheuristics for Air Traffic Management
has been published by Wiley and ISTE (in France). It is the
bitter-sweet legacy of
my former years as head of the R&D department of DSNA, some time
My student Charlie Vanaret received the Computer Science and Mathematics award
from the Toulouse Academy of Science for his

parallel optimization. A preliminary paper (in english) which was the
basis of this PhD was published in the ECAI 2012 proceedings. A
preprint is available

If you don't understand a thing about the above diplomas list, don't
worry, nobody does except the french. The french academic system is a

what we call "diplomes d'ingénieurs" delivered by the "Grandes
Ecoles". A mess really...
