The Coordination Action InterLink (International Cooperation Activities in Future And Emerging ICTs), coordinated by ERCIM and ICS-FORTH, and funded by the Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) Programme of the European Commission, has elaborated research roadmaps for international collaboration in the domains of Software-Intensive Systems and New Computing Paradigms; Ambient Computing and Communication Environments and Intelligent and Cognitive Systems.

In November the book Advanced Computational Methods in Science and Engineering was published by Springer, edited by Barry Koren and Kees Vuik. The aim of the book is to show the state-of-the-art in computational science and engineering. It deals with fast and accurate numerical algorithms, model-order reduction, grid computing, immersed-boundary methods, and specific computational methods for simulating a wide variety of challenging problems. Examples of these problems are fluid-structure interaction, turbulent flames, bone-fracture healing, micro-electro-mechanical systems, failure of composite materials, storm surges, and particulate flows. The authors of the chapters are all specialists from the separate disciplines.

Christer Norström has been appointed new CEO for the Swedish Institute of Computer Science, SICS. Christer Norström leaves his position as a Professor and vice president at Mälardalen University to take over the leadership of SICS on February 1st, as Staffan Truvé moves on to take the chair of the Board.

In 2010, the Institute is recruiting 45 scientists for its eight research centres spread across France.

INRIA is opening a competitive selection process to recruit  18 senior research scientists, eight experienced research scientists and 19 Junior research scientists. Positions are offered in its five major research fields:

Turn Europe into the global leader in ICT innovation - this is the mission for “EIT ICT Labs”, the new Knowledge and Innovation Community (KIC) selected in December 2009 in a tough competition by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). The EIT is a new independent community body which was set up to address Europe's innovation gap. The aim of EIT is to rapidly emerge as a key driver of EU sustainable growth and competitiveness through the stimulation of world-leading innovation.
