Inria: "Smartphones: our applications are getting smarter"
Romain Rouvoy, a researcher in the Spirals team at Inria Lille - Nord Europe, was awarded accreditation to supervise research (HDR, Habilitation à diriger des recherches) in December 2014.
This prestigious academic award recognises his research in software engineering applied to smartphones.
In a world where smartphones and digital applications are becoming more and more present, academic research is now focusing on next-generation applications, able to understand the user’s needs.
Romain Rouvoy is exploring with his team three interconnected areas of research:
elasticity of ubiquitous systems;
contextualizing in ubiquitous systems;
self-adapting ubiquitous systems.
The combination of these three areas can lead to the development of new applications, more adaptable to users’ expectations and environment.
