Since 2010, the OST has been organizing scientific workshops during the annual France-Atlanta conferences. This event is co-organized by the Consulate General of France in Atlanta and the Georgia Institute of Technology and is centered on innovation and designed to foster French-American cooperation and synergetic exchange in the southeastern U.S.

  • France-Atlanta 2015 - Powering the World with Photovoltaics: Status and Opportunities

    This workshop organized by Georgia Tech (GT) and CEA-Liten (France) will focus on solar energy generation, with a particular emphasis on photovoltaic (PV) materials and devices. An overview of the PV technology landscape in Europe and in the United States will be presented and an outlook on future opportunities and challenges generated by recent progress in research and development will be provided.

  • France-Atlanta 2015 - Seminar and Workshop on the Future of Manufacturing

    Organized by Georgia Tech (GT) and Arts et Métiers ParisTech (AMP), this two-day workshop will enable manufacturing experts to share their experiences in research, development, innovation, commercialization, and education in the domain of advanced manufacturing. Identifying key questions and leveraging mutual strengths are expected, to create new opportunities for joint collaborations both in the US and Europe.

  • France-Atlanta 2014 - French Space Activity

    The Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales (CNES), the French Space Agency, is a pivotal player in Europe’s space program, and a major source of initiatives and proposals that aim to maintain France and Europe’s competitive edge. Mr. Philippe Hazane, Space Attaché and CNES Representative at the French Embassy in the United States, will discuss recent French and European space activities.

  • France-Atlanta 2014 - Drones and Autonomous Aviation: Innovation, Markets, and Regulations

    Open to the public, this workshop will bring together specialists from France and the US to discuss their operational experience, the most recent technical advances and the state of the art in Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) research in both countries. Relations to Air Navigation Service Providers, and safety and regulation aspects will be also developed.

  • France-Atlanta 2014 - Digital Learning in 21st-Century Universities

    Online courses like MOOCs introduce challenging new paradigms regarding classical pedagogy, which include all aspects of public education. The worldwide collaborative learning experience not only builds new relationships in the world, but also leads to the emergence of very broad questions on the fate of this digital revolution. These questions will be discussed in a Franco-American perspective, with participants of the two countries coming from the academic world and from the technical and business ones.

  • France-Atlanta 2014 - New Materials Development at the SOLEIL Synchrotron: an International Collaboration by Ed Conrad and Amina Taleb

    In this lecture, Georgia Tech Physics Professor Ed Conrad and Director of Research at the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) Amina Taleb will give a feel for how modern research is conducted in the era of small materials and big machines, showing an example of an international materials research collaboration between Georgia Tech’s School of Physics and researchers at the synchrotron SOLEIL near Paris.

  • France-Atlanta 2014 - Photo Exhibition: The Goldsmiths of Light by Vincent Moncorgé

    In The Goldsmiths of Light, photographer Vincent Moncorgé invites you into the
    heart of the synchrotron SOLEIL facility, located at the University Paris-Saclay
    in France, where he spent day and night photographing the multidisciplinary
    research facility as part of the celebration of its first decade. The result is a
    stunning glimpse into this French kaleidoscope of technologic and human skills.

  • France-Atlanta 2014 - Documenting Sciences: a Photographer’s Perspective

    Freelance professional photographer Vincent Moncorge will share his experience on documenting science. Following a short historical exploration from the late 19th century and French photographer Etienne Jules Marey’s Chronophotograph, he will detail the new modern story-telling strategies the scientific community is facing today. Then, he will share about his own personal experiences with photographing synchrotron daily life to model organisms such as tiny Drosophila flies.
