  • Journées Filles et Maths
    Dec 10, 2015

    Il s'agit d'un temps de réflexion, d'échange, et d'information, destiné à des lycéennes, sur les études et métiers des mathématiques, et les stéréotypes qui freinent souvent les jeunes femmes pour s'orienter vers ces parcours.
    Destinées à encourager les jeunes filles à s'orienter vers des études de mathématiques et plus généralement des études scientifiques et techniques, ces journées sont organisées par les associations Femmes et mathématiques et Animath, depuis fin décembre 2009.

    L'Université de Rennes 1 et le Centre de mathématiques Henri Lebesgue s'associent à cette initiative et organisent le 10 décembre 2015 la prochaine manifestation "Filles et mathématiques : une équation lumineuse !" pour les lycéennes de la région Bretagne.

    Programme de la journée :

    09h30-10h00 : Ouverture autour de jeux mathématiques

    Organization board: Pierre Ailliot, Denis Allard, Anne Cuzol, Ronan Fablet, William Kleiber, Etienne Mémin, Valérie Monbet, Philippe Naveau, Pierre Tandeo, Ying Sun

    How can we reliably predict climate-related risks? Stochastic weather generators give us this ability by simulating sequences of daily weather and climate consistent with specific aspects of climate variability and change. The simulated sequences of meteorological variables (rainfall, wind, temperature,...) are typically used as inputs into complex environmental and ecosystem models. They have a wide range of applications in hydrology, agriculture and environmental management.

    This workshop aims at bringing together a wide range of researchers, practitioners, and graduate students whose work is related to the stochastic modelling of meteorological variables and stochastic weather generators.
