Best Paper AwardThe paper entitled “Predicting Mobile Phone User Locations by Exploiting Collective Behavioral Patterns”, authored by Haoyi Xiong, Daqing Zhang and Vincent Gauthier from Telecom SudParis (Institut Mines-Telecom), and developed as part of the team’s research in the EU FP7 SOCIETIES project, won the Best Paper Award at the 9th IEEE Conference on Ubiquitous Intelligence and Computing (UIC 2012), Fukuoka, Japan, Sept. 2012. The acceptance rate of full papers in UIC 2012 is 25%. The SOCIETIES’ Telecom SudParis team, led by Prof. Daqing Zhang, is responsible for the user agent design, user location and intent prediction, mobile social community creation and detection, as well as bridging online social networks and the spontaneous mobile social networks. This paper aims to predict the user’s location as part of the user’s context. While the state-of-the-art research predicts the mobility pattern of individual users based on their historical location traces, we first propose to use the collective behavior of massive user groups mined from cellular trajectories to enhance the prediction of individual user’s future locations, leading to a new type of location predictor considering both individual’s historical mobility pattern and the collective behavioral pattern of the user communities.

Gold MedalFrédérique Silber-Chaussumier and the G2 team from INF department which participated in this project, received the gold medal for the ParMA project, presented at ITEA2 Symposium (26-27 October, Ghent). The ITEA2 ParMA project objective was to allow high performance computing (HPC) applications and traditional applications, to take full advantage of the power of multicore architectures that are deployed, and facilitate the emergence of a new embedded applications type of high power consuming processors whose volume and heat dissipation have been so reduced to take place aboard an aircraft. To achieve this objective, the project has developed advanced technology to exploit the parallelism both of HPC systems on the MPSoC (Multi-Processor on Chip) processor-based multicore. The main results of the project were
- construction and the provision of UNITE package contains all the measurement and performance analysis tools, validated in many contexts;
- delivery of a new software infrastructure, including enhancements developed under the project, for the Bull bullx system, recognized as the best supercomputer in the world;
- new performance gains achieved by all applications for many of them have already resulted in obtaining new contracts.

Best Paper Award
Noël Crespi won the Best Paper Award in the 2010 ICSEA Conference for the paper "Business and Information System Alignment: A Formal Solution for Telecom Services". "The main aim of Enterprise Architecture (EA) is to master the development and the evolutions of Information Systems (IS). The EA process consists in designing on several views the IS target architecture, according to the company strategy. The business view represents the target organization of the considered company. The functional view focuses on the target functional architecture of the considered IS. In this paper, we propose a new formal solution to analyze the consistency between the target functional view and the target business view of telecom services. This solution is based on the definition of a strategic alignment of the target functional view with the target business view. Alignment is illustrated with a real case study achieved with Orange - France Telecom on their messaging service. An alignment measure completing this analysis provides an estimation of the gap between a target functional view and a target business view."
