As Ingenior in geomatics, I worked for the IGN France as a researcher and research director. My initial research interests were concerned with the scale change and automation of generalisation in particular. Since 2000 I expanded my research interests to include semiotics, spatio-temporal modelling and dynamics. I managed French projects on urban densification (GeOpenSim) and currently on population and space growth (GeoPeople). I am working for the Institut Français des Sciences et Technologies des Transports (IFSTTAR) on urban geomatics. I strongly believe in the utility of research network to share knowledge, help young researchers to speed up their knowledge acquisition and strengthen research capacity. I think the ICA has the perfect size and structure for those purposes.

    Bonjour ,

    etre un chercheur de renommé est ce qu’on souhaite tous mais dans ce monde de force diséquilibrée, nous nous retrouvons , nous les chercheurs du tier monde, dans une situation psychologique lamentable car nous sommes marginalisés par nos institutions et nous ne pouvons avancer individuellement.
    J’ai été particulièrement touché par le fait que j’ai tenté de télecharger un de vos articles de 1998 et je n’ai pas pu car il faut l’acheter c’est quoi cette connaissance qui ne peut être partagé avec autrui même apres tant d’années j’était particulièrement touché par ça.
