Presenting the ERC Illustrated Talks!

We are pleased & proud to present the first edition of the ERCcOMICS "Illustrated Talks".
The Illustrated talks feature four ERC grantees presenting their research vision, outputs and objectives, accompanied by an illustrator who will draw in real time, inspired by their speech. 

You will discover how artificial intelligence can help musicians to compose a song; why lianas are proliferating in the rainforest; how physics can make an object invisibile; and how graphic interfaces will evolve in the future.

The Illustrated Talks will take place at in Paris at UPMC, Jussieu Campus, on Wednesday June 29, Amphi 25, and they are open to the public, so join us!
