ECCOMAS MSF 2017 SHORT COURSE

Short Course held at 3rd ECCOMAS MSF 2017, entitled "Current Research on Solids & Fluids: Computations, FE Code Coupling, Model Reduction, Probability… " has attracted over 40 participants. The lectures were given by Professors Adnan Ibrahimbegovic, Abdellatif Ouahsine and Florian de Vuyst from UTC France, along with Professor Hermann Matthies from TU Bruanschweig Germany and Professor Jose Luis Perez Aparicio from UP Valencia Spain.

The main objective of this course is to provide graduate students and researchers, with an extensive review of numerical models for computational solid and fluid mechanics, and pertinent modern developments in model reduction, probability aspects and uncertainty quantification. It presents the current state-of-the-art in finite element, finite volume and discrete element modeling of nonlinear problems in solid and fluid mechanics, and their coupling with thermal fields and interaction. It will illustrate the difficulties (and their solutions), which appear in a number of applications from mechanical, aerospace and civil engineering or material science. All the sources of nonlinear behavior are presented in a systematic manner, related to kinematics, equilibrium, constitutive equations, or boundary and coupling conditions. Special attention is paid to dealing with a class of problems with nonlinear constitutive behavior of materials, large deformations, and rotations in solid and fluid mechanics. In addition, a detailed presentation of modern probability aspects is given, which is of great interest for current research for quantifying the epistemic uncertainties pertinent to the material heterogeneities, and aleatoric uncertainties pertinent to evolution problems.
Our second objective is to provide the participants with a solid basis for using the FEM, FVM or particle based models and software in trying to achieve the optimal design, and/or to carry out a refined analysis of nonlinear behavior of structures or multibody systems in real-life simulations. The course finally provides a basis to account for any pertinent multi-physics and multi-scale effects, which are most likely to provide significant innovations and break-through in a number of industrial applications.

APPOINTMENT OF ADNAN IBRAHIMBEGOVIC TO IUF

Adnan Ibrahimbegovic, Professor at the University of Technology of Compiegne, has been appointed senior member of IUF Institut Universitaire de France. His appointment will be effective from 1 October 2015 for a period of 5 years.

Institut Universitaire de France counts two categories of members: seniors and juniors. All of them are exclusively professors or lecturers, teaching at a French universities.
They are appointed to the Institut Universitaire de France for a period of five years. For juniors, this appointment is not renewable. For seniors, it can be renewed only once for another 5-year period.

Since the creation of the Institut Universitiaire of France in 1991, fifteen promotions with maximum of 40 members have been appointed. Specifically, 582 research professors, slightly more than 1% of total number of teachers and researchers at French universities, have received or have the status of members of the IUF, including each and every category and branch of teaching and research.

See the ceremony for IUF 2015:

Institut Universitaire de France has the main mission to promote the development of high level research at French universities and strengthen interdisciplinarity, pursuing three objectives:
 Encouraging institutions and faculty to research excellence, with positive consequences that can be expected on teaching, training young researchers and more generally for the dissemination of knowledge;
 Contribute to the feminization of the research sector;
 Contribute to a balanced distribution of university research in the country, and therefore a scientific and better network policy planning.

Some faculty members are appointed annually by the IUF, after examination of their application by an international jury, which assesses the quality of their scientific work and their research project.
The research laureate of the IUF, becomes an active member of this institution for 5 years, it is thereby placed in delegations position with the IUF, by order of the President of the institution with main affiliation.
The status of member of the IUF allows the researcher to receive three types of funding that may be used for the research project for which he was distinguished.
These financial supports are:
1) A scientific credit of € 15 000 per year for 5 years or € 75 000 in total,
2) A research bonus for scientific excellence (PES) of a minimum amount of € 6000 for junior members and € 10,000 for senior members.
3) A service discharge compensation for 2/3 of the statutory teaching services, or 128 annual overtime.

Furthermore, members of the University Institute of France have the opportunity to invite foreign teachers for short stays. Ten invitations are attributed each year on average.

IUF - Institut Universitaire de France
[source: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia]

The Institut Universitaire de France, abbreviated by the acronym IUF is a French service of the Ministry of Higher Education that distinguishes each year a small number of university professors for their research excellence, as evidenced by their international recognition. It was created to become a new "Collège de France", located in French universities. Only 2% of French university professors have been currently distinguished by the Institut Universitaire de France.

Introduction
The Institute was created by decree on 26 of August, 1991.[1] It is an organization without walls whose members remain in their own universities (at least two thirds of the members of the IUF belong to universities outside Paris ). The purpose of the IUF is to give full freedom to its winners to pursue their research and give them the means to disseminate them. There is a strong area of excellence for French research, as evidenced by the international reputation of its members. About 2% of total French faculties are members (active or honorary) of the IUF. Each year a symposium brings together members of the IUF in order to allow exchanges at the highest level of French research. The IUF is composed of two types of members, all faculty members, professors or lecturers, stationed in a French university:
senior members who have reached international recognition.
junior members (under 40 years old), who are promising young scholars.

In addition, about ten foreign teachers may be invited each year. Members are elected for five years (not renewable for the junior, renewable once for seniors).
They are placed in the position of delegation to the IUF, but remain in their home university.
They benefit from a reduction of 2 / 3 of their statutory teaching service.
Specific research money is paid each year to their team or laboratory . The sum is 15,000 euros per year.
They automatically receive the national award of scientific excellence (PES): 6000 euros for junior members, 10 000 euros for senior members.
A progress report is requested their mid-term and after 5 years of their delegation.
IUF members must contribute to the scientific reputation locally, nationally and internationally in a deliberate effort to interdisciplinarity

Jury Selection
Selection boards are partially renewed each year. They have many international members and international character is one of the specificities of the IUF.[2] The use of top international experts avoids any risk of cooptation and guarantees the high quality of appointments to the IUF.

Since 2009, the jury is officially made up for more than half of foreign scientists known for their international reputation. These are the Collège de France, the Academy of Sciences, Academy of Moral and Political Sciences, the National Academy of Medicine, the Conference of University Presidents, the CP-CNU offering the names of persons approached to compose the jury . Its composition is then released and the CV of its members. The jury called for the assessment of candidates’ portfolios, to the rapporteurs of high scientific level, at least twice a candidate to have a disciplinary notice informed. If the CVs submitted by the rapporteurs ensure scientific excellence, statements of interest guarantee their independence vis-à-vis the files they load.[3] New members of the Institute, besides the discharge of service and staffing dedicated to the scientific environment of 15,000 euros since 2012 (20,000 euros until 2011), receive a bonus of 10,000 euros, which represents twice the former RDD.

These changes are partly related to appointments at the Institut Universitaire de France in September, 2008 which caused considerable controversy. The controversy concerns the appointment of additional members, including Michel Maffesoli, including economist and president of the jury Elie Cohen said he "would never have been selected by the jury even if there were more places".[4][5] Some jurors senior and junior of the Institute had protested against these appointments by circulating the September 24, 2008, a declaration that they were indignant "lack of transparency and nominations for 2008".[6] This challenge was supported by the Society Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SMAI)[7] and the French Association for Scientific Information (AFIS).[
