[Conferences will be in French]

Conference - When art meets science: turbulence as seen as by Léonard De Vinci • Centrale Nantes

  • 2.30 pm -Lecture Theatre B08
As part of events marking the anniversary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci, researchers at Centrale and the CNRS set themselves a challenge: to use today's research tools, such as numerical modelling, to reproduce a da Vinci sketch of turbulent flow. At this conference you'll learn about the secrets of this flow and the genius of da Vinci! Researchers will also present a 3D view of this flow, reproduced using today's tools.

Conference - "Renewable energies for energy transition • Centrale Nantes

 • 11.30 am -Lecture Theatre B08
Climate change is a major issue for humanity in the 21st century. Global awareness has accelerated in recent years, particularly in France since the COP21.

This conference aims to shed light on what science can tell us today about climate change and renewable energies.

Electronic voting is controversial because it lacks transparency and electoral results can't be verified. A "verifiable electronic voting" model emerged a few years ago. We will analyse to what extent it meets, or not, the requirements of democratic polls.
