Prix Nexans 2017

Congratulations to my former doctoral student Alberto Ravagnani, who was awarded the prestigious Prix Nexans! In the afternoon of December 20 we held a conference for the general public on Théorie et pratique des codes correcteurs d’erreurs, followed by the ceremony for the attribution of the prize. The event took place at the University of Neuchatel.

Seminar in coding theory and cryptography

I organize a research seminar in coding theory and cryptography, together with J. Rosenthal. The seminar takes place at the Universities of Neuchatel and Zurich.

West Asian Mathematical Schools -- WAMS

I recently joined the WAMS committee. The West Asian Mathematical Schools are organized in collaboration with and under the supervision of CIMPA.


I am member of the management team of CIMPA (International Centre for Pure and Applied Mathematics), a non-profit international organization whose aim is promoting international cooperation in higher education and research in mathematics for the benefit of developing countries. Please contact me if you are interested in organizing a research school in a developing country or in giving a course in such a school.
