Software & Industrial workshop II and ESR Days

February 14, 2023 - February 17, 2023

The Software and Industrial Workshop II (SIW2) is “GRAPES developer days”, allowing for senior researchers and ESRs to partake in coding sessions, completing small coding tasks and learning from each other. These sessions aim to facilitate knowledge transfer towards first solutions of real-world problems posed by our industrial partners.
Confirmed invited speakers include: RISC-Software, Tutorial: Machine Learning for metrology (XMANAI team, Athena RC), Leonidas Guibas (tentative) (Stanford University), André Lieutier (Geometry Engineering, Dassault Systèmes).

The ESR Days is an important aspect of networking and training, collocated with SIW2. The ESRs, through their organisation, coordinated by their representatives and assisted by the Coordinator and the organisers of SIW2, shall have to make choices and assign roles to each other. They shall choose GRAPES and external speakers, shall organise oral or poster presentations by themselves, undertake public engagement activities, and shall interact so as to foster ties useful for their future careers.

Location (UPDATED!)      

The meeting will take place physically at the Fresh Hotel in downtown Athens, see the map below. The hotel is close to the Athens City Hall and within walking distance form the Omonia square and Monastiraki square and the corresponding metro stations. Lunches and coffee breaks will be served on site.

Invited talks and tutorials

André Lieutier (Geometry Engineering) – From topological inference to meshing algorithms

In this tutorial we consider the general problem of retrieving a topologically correct model from partial geometric information. Applications areas span from automated 3D scene faithful reconstruction from scanned points clouds to abstract submanifolds inference from high dimensional data in the context of machine learning.
In a first part, the tutorial will recall several topological notions and consider their possible inference from data. In a second part, we focus on the computation of simplicial complexes homeomorphic to manifolds known through point samples, in other words, manifolds triangulation algorithms with topological guarantees.


Directions from/To the Athens International Airport “E. Venizelos”

The Athens International Airport is located 27 km southeastern of Athens.

Directions to Athens center:

  • The best option is to use cialis dosage range(subway, blue line), and get off at “Syntagma” stop. Timetable: 05:30-24:00. Frequency: 36′
  • Taxis: the taxi stand extends from Door 4 to Door 1 at the Arrivals Level. Fee: 38 or 54 Euro at daytime or evenings, resp.
  • Express Airport Bus X95 (to Syntagma sq.): cialis san francisco. Runs on a 24-hour basis. The duration of the route from and to the Eleftherios Venizelos Airport depends on traffic conditions and on the time of use of the Express bus line. Εstimated duration of route for X95 bus line is approximately 60’.

Directions to the venue (“Fresh Hotel”):
From the airport take Metro Line 3 (blue line) or Express Airport Bus X95 or a taxi and at Syntagma Metro Station change to Metro Line 2 (red line). Get off at “Omonia” stop. From there it is a 6′ walk (500m) to the venue.

ALternatively, from the airport take Metro Line 3 (blue line) and get off at “Monastiraki” stop. From there it is a 8′ walk (700m) to the venue.

Schedule of the metro and tram can be found here and of the buses here.


We have reserved a few rooms at the Fresh hotel where the workshop will take place. Here are some other suggestions for lodging in Athens in the vicinity of the workshop’s venue:
