12 TéSA papers accepted for EUSIPCO 2024!

The European signal and image processing conference EUSIPCO, bringing together more than 700 researchers in the field, will be held in Lyon in August this year and TéSA will be present in force: 12 papers have been accepted. Good job to everyone !

Jihanne El Haouari, Marta Bottani

Two TéSA Phd students finalists in the Best Student Paper Award of IEEE IGARSS 2024

In addition to having their papers accepted at IEEE IGARSS 2024, Marta Bottani (“A Statistical Method for Near Real-Time Deforestation Monitoring Using Time-Series of Sentinel-1 Images”) and Jihanne El Haouari (“Estimation of Instrument Spectral Response Functions Using Sparse Representations in a Dictionary”) will be among the 10 finalists for the Best Student Paper Award, from 375 submissions. Many congratulations to Marta and Jihanne: having 2 TéSA papers among the 10 finalists is already quite a victory! There is no doubt that they will wear the TéSA colors loud and clear during this upcoming competition!

TéSA scientific seminar

No, it was not Calyampudi Radhakrishna Rao who came to TéSA to tell us about his famous bounds (thanks Wikipedia for the picture), he unfortunately died in August 2023 at the age of 102 without having had time to visit us! But it was Sarah El Boulch, post-doctoral researcher at ISAE-SUPAERO who came to share with us the results of her work on “Hybrid and Modified Lower bounds for Discrete-time Markovian Dynamic systems“. Another very interesting seminar!

TéSA in the UTIAS² Forum

TéSA participated in the UTIAS² Forum (Uses of Artificial Intelligence Technologies in the Space Sector), organized by the COMET SIL of CNES on April 4 and 5, 2024 in Toulouse, with a presentation by Corinne Mailhes “AI in TéSA: Machine Learning, anomaly detection and more if affinities” and Léa Dubreil and Gastón de Boni Rovella who presented two posters on their PhD work. Two rich days with great presentations, great discussions… Well done to the organizers and looking forward to attending the session next year!

At TéSA, PhD students are prepared for their “post-PhD”

For 2 years now, Xavier Barichard has been supporting TéSA doctoral students in the final year of their doctoral PhD to prepare them for their future job interviews. Xavier has known TéSA for many years (previously, he was the Collins Aerospace representative, TéSA partner, in the TéSA Board of Directors). The preparation he offers is individual, adapted to each person, centered on self-knowledge to build your professional project and present yourself better to others. The feedback from doctoral students on this support is very positive, “a chance for TéSA doctoral students to have this type of attention” and there is no doubt that TéSA will continue its collaboration with XBcoaching.
