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 AGORANTIC, 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
* Network Neutrality
* ITACA - Information Technology and Artistic CreAtion
* DODESCADEN - Data and cOntent DElivery in SoCiAl networks: an epiDEmic aNalysis.
