“The 20th Annual IEEE Workshop on Signal Processing Advances for Wireless Communications (SPAWC 2019) successfully took place in Cannes from 2 to 5 July 2019.
More than 260 international researchers met to think and share ideas on various research topics which are the core concerns of R&D stakeholders in Sophia Antipolis and in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region: Signal processing (optimization, automatic learning) and wireless communications of the future (5G-6G, connected vehicles, IoT, smart city, smart grids).
With a historical record of participation for this international annual conference, we are proud to testify the extraordinary attractivity of Cannes.
In the name of the organizing team, David Gesbert, Professor at EURECOM and General Chair IEEE SPAWC 2019 would like to thank the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur Region for its financial support, which was essential to a smooth organization.”

“NeuroFrance 2019, international colloquium of the Neuroscience Society, gathered during three days in the Marseille Chanot Convention Centre more than 1300 delegates and exhibitors from 27 different nationalities around a program which highlighted the last scientific and technological advances on the nervous system and its pathologies.
The importance of the local neuroscience community, the commitment of the South Region in research and health sectors and the attractivity of Marseille were decisive elements in the selection of the destination for this 14th edition of our biennal event. We would like to thank all our partners for their support, which was decisive for the success of our conference, and in particular the South Region and Provence Côte d’Azur Events for their contribution with the “Attract Congresses and Event” program.”
Karine MICHEA, Deputy Director, Natural Reserves of France
National Congress of Natural Reserves, Le-Monêtier-les-Bains, 5-8 June 2019
“A landmark congress on natural reserves at the heart of nature in the South Region »
The congress on natural reserves of France took place in Le-Monêtier-les-Bains at the beginning of June 2019 and gathered around 400 professionals in the field of nature.
Numerous participants expressed their great satisfaction on the event destination – which hosted the congress only for the second time in 37 years – as well as the quality of exchanges on the adaptation to the consequences of climate change.
It was indeed the opportunity to discover the Region’s large riches of natural spaces with remarkable heritage, and to be in contact with local public stakeholders. The destination will remain a reference for the congress of natural reserves.
The presence of the Secretary of State to Ecology, Mrs. Emmanuelle Wargon, during the plenary is a strong sign of recognition of the work realised by all the managers of protected natural spaces.
This event was co-organized by the Ecrins National Parc and RNF with the support of local natural reserves managers, the tourism office of Le-Monêtier-les-Bains as well as the region Sud Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur and the Interregional Conventionf of the Alps.”
