Tezos, a blockchain by scientists: principles and applications
Tezos is a blockchain done by computer scientists most of them related to the INRIA. As a result, Tezos is written in OCaml, advocates solid algorithms, domain specific languages for smart contracts and formal verification. We will expose some of the principles that guided the creation of Tezos, explain the challenges ahead and discuss potential applications.
Diego Olivier Fernandez Pons was a funding board member of the Tezos foundation during its first year. His specialty is mixed integer linear programming and combinatorial optimization applied to industrial problems. He worked for ILOG for many years. He now acts as an advisor in languages and formal verification for Tezos Southeast Asia

Workshop “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango” – 2nd Edition
Title: Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango – 2nd Edition
Dates: October 25-26, 2022
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
