Schools CEA - EDF - INRIA

History

The CEA–EDF–Inria summer schools have existed since 1961! Let us relive together these decades of history of digital sciences.

A bit of history…

At the beginning, there were CEA and EDF

In 1960, CEA, jointly with Electricité de France (EDF), set up a Summer School on Numerical Analysis. In the CEA annual report of 1960, one can read: “The aim of this summer school is to provide to interested University specialists, as well as to those from the main computing centers in France, a high-level education in the field of numerical analysis“.
A first three-week session took place during the summer of 1961 at the Ecole des cadres des Bréaux (EDF). It was attended by 33 participants who followed subjects related to elliptic and parabolic partial differential equations and linear programming. Other sessions were then organized every year in July (1962–1969).

Inria jumps aboard in 1969

In 1969, the National Institute for Research in Computer Science and Automation (Inria) was associated to the project. That same year, the three organizations organized the first session of an Summer School on Informatics.
The CEA, EDF, and Inria still organize these two summer schools every year. Since the 2000s, the themes are often fucused towards high-performance computing.
