We are looking forward to celebrating the BSC staff annual meeting this year.

As in the previous edition, the event will be online and shorter.

The event will begin on December 15th at 10:30 am. We will send you a link nearer the time so you can connect.

Even more than normal, we hope that as many BSC staff as possible will be able to attend and participate.

You can participate by telling us:

What you would like to know about?

Let us know which subjects you find interesting to be incorporated into the BSC directors’ presentations.
Deadline exceeded

What would you like to listen to?

What you would like to share?

We would like to know more about your work, so we have booked one hour of the Annual Meeting to listen to 6 BSC employees that will explain what they do. We encourage you to be one of them.

What I would like to explain

Coming soon

 BSC Talks

We have booked time for 6 employees to explain in 6 minutes what you do at BSC.

The event will be VIRTUAL but the BSC Talks will be presented from the studio where the event is taking place.

We would like you to make short, attractive presentations (6 minutes) so all the BSC staff know what you do.

You could be one of those to go up the stage, and we will help you to prepare it.

What will you need to do?

  1. Let us know about what you would like to explain.
    • Send us a short video (landscape) of 45 seconds’ maximum explaining what you would like to present at
    • State your name, department, research group and a provisional title for your talk.
    • Deadline: November 29th.
  2. All the BSC staff will vote for the 6 most interesting proposals.
    • All videos will be available at the web page and the voting process will be open. Each employee will be able to vote up to 3 proposals.
  3. If your proposal is one of the chosen ones:
    • A training session will be organized for the 6 most voted.
  4. Prepare a 6 minutes’ presentation.
  5. The best presentation of December 15th will be awarded!

Directors’ presentation of 2022

We would like to know what subjects you are interested in so as to incorporate them in the directors’ presentation of the center. Fill in this form with your questions.

Nowadays, thanks to the spectacular progress of Artificial Intelligence, High Performance Computing, the Cloud and the Internet of Things (IoT), the Computer Aided Design and Engineering is undergoing a fundamental and deep transformation. Innovation is indeed moving more from product life cycle management to in-service performance. This new requirement has led to a fundamental and disruptive transformation of the manufacturing industry towards a high level integrated digital industry, which must now provide an enhanced numerical description of the Product. This fundamental evolution of the Product's life cycle with its in-service performance monitoring is at the heart of the expectations of industry 4.0. This seminar gives an overview of the research carried out at Mines ParisTech to meet these new challenges.

Short bio:

Youssef Mesri, Associate Professor at Mines ParisTech, joined CEMEF -Center of Material Forming- in January 2015 to develop research and teaching activities in computational high performance mechanics. He is director of the Master program in High Performance Computing and Data Science and deputy head of Computing and Fluids research group. Ex-engineer of IFP Energies Nouvelles, specializing in high-performance numerical methods, Youssef Mesri is one of the designers of the ARCANE computing platform to model and analyze fluid mechanics phenomena. Initially developed for nuclear applications (CEA), ARCANE is now enriched with new applications, such as multi-phased multi-species flows in geosciences, enabling it to widen the scope of its potential use. He is reviewer of several international journals, including the Computer Methods in Applied Mechanics and Engineering, the Journal of Computational Physics, and Computers and Fluids. His research is about efficient algorithms for the simulation of incompressible/compressible materials using high performance computing methods designed for unstructured meshes.
