e-SOCiety Culture and Art (e-SOCCA)
Socca is an interdisciplinary project on
networking aspects that have an impact on society
culture and art.
"Socca" is also the French name of a mediteranian
dish (pancake of chickpea flour)
that one can find from Nice to Pisa,
also known as "Farinatta" ("made
of flour") in Italian, "Faina" in Genova, and
"Cecina" in Tuscany.
My work in SOCCA is part of the involvment of INRIA
in a new Interdisciplinary Research Initiative on
e-Culture and Societies, called
centered at the University of Avignon, and
co-founded by INRIA and the CNRS. Research axes in e-SOCCA:
AccesS To knowledgE and Culture (ASTEC):
The interplay between legislation, Economics and information technology
ITACA - Information Technology and Artistic CreAtion
DODESCADEN - Data and cOntent DElivery in SoCiAl
networks: an epiDEmic aNalysis.
