The second Thematic Workshop will take place in Lyon and is organised by PACE partner and beneficiary WTCN, in collaboration with local experts in ‘active Inference’ from the Cortex multi-lab Research Program based in the Université de Lyon.Active inference is an important theoretical framework – developed by Karl Friston (UCL) – which proposes that both perception and action can be cast as Bayesian inference.The work of the UMR relies on analytical equipment from the Ceramology laboratory and the Carbon dating centre and on the competences of its archaeology teams.
UMR 5138 (mixed research unit) was set up in 2001 and is called "Archeometry and archaeology: origin, dating and materials technologies".It was created with a view to boosting the archeometric potential of the Lyon region and to develop joint programmes between the Laboratoire de Céramologie [Ceramology laboratory], the Centre de Datation par le Radiocarbone [Carbon-dating centre], and the Earth sciences UFR (training and research unit).The UMR then gradually grew thanks to the creation of a regional archaeology team, which enabled the Centre de recherche préhistorique Rhône-Alpes de Valence [Rhone-Alpes and Valence prehistoric research centre] to be attached, and agreements to be signed with the French ministry for culture and the INRAP (underway).The UMR is currently extending its research activities to cover a regional, national and international area, for both archaeology and archeometry.The activities of the various components complement each other and combine three main areas of research for which teams have been set up:1 / "Properties and use of raw materials - History of techniques" (managers: E. Schmitt),2 / " Production, distribution, sale" (manager: S. Waksman),3 / "Archaeology in the Rhône-Alpes region" (managers: N. Baud); one looks after "common Gallo-Roman ceramics in the Rhône-Alpes region" (manager: C.
Batigne Vallet); and the third one is concerned with "The great Chasséen terrace sites in the Rhone area." (Manager: A. Now with Lyons Elite Match Making, Emily’s expertise has ventured boldly into the world of dating. And it only makes sense, then for these busy trailblazers to outsource the goal of finding love and romance to elite matchmaking experts. I decided to try out Lyons Elite because of all the great things I’ve heard about this “matchmaking for the successful,” here in Toronto.The end result is a dating service that offers elite clients the very best services available. Entrepreneurs and business leaders who are driven to become a synonym for excellence are relentlessly focused, sacrificing their comfort daily and devoting themselves to their vision. I thought they may be blowing a little smoke but let’s just say I wasn’t disappointed – not even close!As such, they do not hesitate to outsource any and all tasks that someone else can do. All in all, my experience with Lyons Elite has been enjoyable. We love paranormal romance and who hasn't fantasized about finding their own vampire soul mate!The various UMR are involved in a large number of countries: Algeria, Bulgaria, Egypt, Greece, Italy, Lebanon, Libya, Poland, Portugal, Syria, Tunisia, Turkey, Ukraine.
