Vice-President Anne Ruas

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.
