University of Montepllier Web Science Master Proposal - Stefano A. Cerri

  1. 1. Web Science Master 2011-> Université Montpellier 2 FdS-Informatique LIRMM Stefano Cerri, Madalina Croitorou, Patrick Valduriez and the Web Science team (16+)
  2. 2. Historical trace2004 : attempt to launch an Erasmus Mundus «Euro Agents » (Artificial Intelligence) at FdS. 4 EU Universities contacted. Initiative: Daniele Herin. Operation: Stefano Cerri and Fred Koriche. Reasons of the failure: no money for paying the classes in English.2006: attempt to launch an English Master in « Human and Robot Services and Cognition » at Polytech (Duby). Stefano Cerri (FdS) and Maguelone Teisseire (Polytech). Reasons of failure: opposition of FdS.2009: attempt to launch a Master « Web Science » at FdS (habilitation 2011->). Stefano Cerri (FdS) and Madalina Croitorou (IUT MPL) (+ A. Château FdS; C. Tibermacine IUT Bezier, M. Huchard FdS, T.Stratulat Polytech, C. Dony FdS, T. Libourel FdS, I. Mougenot FdS, J.Ferber FdS, F. Michel IUT MPL, V. Prince FdS, P. Valduriez INRIA, E. Pacitti Polytech, Z. Bellahsene IUT MPL, M. Hascoet FdS, A. Laurent Polytech, A. Gouaich IUT MPL, E. Bourreau FdS, Vincent Douzal Cemagref, … )Reaction AERES: very positive (call to UM2 for support).
  3. 3. AERES about Web Science Master Web science Avis :L’objectif de la spécialité est de proposer une formation en anglais sur le thèmenovateur d’une science du Web qui va bien au-delà des technologies du Web pourenglober une réflexion pluridisciplinaire sur la réalité et les impacts du Web. Il s’agitd’un projet en construction qui doit associer des partenaires étrangers. Ce projettrès ambitieux, sur un domaine novateur et qui contribue à l’ouvertureinternationale, mérite d’être fortement soutenu. Points forts : Thématique originale sur un domaine en expansion. "Adossement au LIRMM, laboratoire très reconnu. "Partenaires envisagés très prestigieux (MIT, Southampton). "UE proposées en anglais. "Points faibles : " "Le projet est encore à mettre en place. " "Il manque une étude sur l’insertion professionnelle ou sur la poursuite d’études après le master.
  4. 4. AERES about Web Science MasterWeb science Recommandations pour l’établissement :Le projet est très prometteur et mérite d’être fortement soutenu. En revanche, aumoment de l’évaluation, ce projet n’est pas suffisamment mûr pour pouvoir prendreposition. Parmi les questions importantes restant ouvertes, citons les suivantes :Qu’en est-il des relations avec les partenaires envisagés ?Cette spécialité sera-t-elle à vocation « recherche », professionnelle ouindifférenciée ?Dans les deux derniers cas, l’implication de partenaires industriels dans la formationdevrait être prévue. NOTATION (A+, A, B ou C) : B
  5. 5. Support: MANY THANKS TO:March 2009 : visit of Jerôme Galy (International Um2) to LIRMMProject IMI (Internationalisation of Masters in Informatics)supported with 3K€ in 2009(one travel MC to Southampton, one travel SAC to Stanford)Project Web Science Spécialité Nouvelle Habilitation FdS UM2: Main supporter: Thérèse Libourel
  6. 6. Goals of the Web Science Masterinitiative at UM2:Widen the students potential marketEnhance the « international » with Countries from the « north » the Informatics curriculum and organisation focussing of the jobs of the future
  7. 7. Widen and better the students potential market:“Bassin de recrutement” multiplied by a factor 10-20 to allthe English speaking communitieswithout excluding the French speaking onesCLIL method (Content Language Integrated Learning, checkthe EU web site concerning this)High chances to select « the best students » not only « morestudents » : attract international talents to France
  8. 8. Enhance the « international » with Countries from the « north »The « international » already existing at the UM2 (wrt pedagogy)is *** mainly *** with Countries from the « south »:Maghreb, Lebanon, Vietnam, Thailand, ...Enhance it with a significant joint Master with Countries fromthe « north » (Europe, US, Israel, Japan, …)without excluding the Countries from the south (Brazil, India, …)Erasmus Mundus if possible(high chances to get it, but huge time and efforts needed: manyadministrative pbs to solve + win the bid at the EU ...)
  9. 9. Enhance the Informatics curriculumUsage-centered development of Web 3.0 : a science of the Web: study billions of machines and billions of humans connected before engineering infrastructures and applicationsspecial fit to MPLs priorities in Agro-Bio-Health-EnvironmentSciences Southampton agrees to share the concernssee Web Science Trust and Southampton-Oxford Web ScienceInstitute (30M ) Southampton: EE & CS; Oxford: Humanities & Social Sciencessee also the Brazilian Web Science Research initiative.
  10. 10. Reshape the Informatics organisationfocus on research and innovation (no strong distinction)less classes in presence (max 15 hrs per week) much more personal and group studydynamic content capitalysing from richness of scientific events in MPLwhen Erasmus then mobility ensured in Europe and elsewere (US, Brazil, ...)direct links with researchers LIRMM A+ in France , but also organisms eg INRIA, CEMAGREF, INRA, CIRAD, IRD, ... ??? other UM2 Labs ??? UM1? UM3?
  11. 11. focussing of the jobs of the futureresearch and innovation in administrations and enterpsises in anypossible domain where the Web induces « virtualisation » eg: distance work, commerce, learning, entertainement, health, justice, politics, ...high level of conception difference with web technologies synergies with application scenarios abstraction with respect to technologiesstrategic jobs, not just technical skills (US: 80% of classical « technical » jobs are delocalized !)technical immediate adoption of the paradigm shift introduced by Service Oriented Computing = Semantics (meaning is central in focus) + Processes (distributed human and artifical processes) + Agents (autonomous, distributed, heterogeneous, communicating, asynchronous, dynamic entities)
  12. 12. Conclusion: Need for a Curriculum Development project Supported at the level of UM2 (even if under the initiative of the FdS) See the following proposal by Madalina Croitorou
