# Curriculum Vitae

My name is François Boulier. I was born on August 6th, 1965 at Alençon. I am a Full Professor in Computer Science at the Engineering School Polytech'Lille since 2010. I was Head of the Computer Algebra Team from 2011 to 2014. Since 2015, I have been Head of the Computer Algebra and High Performance Computing Team. I am a member of the Inria GAIA Team since January 1st, 2018.Since June 1st 2018, I am the Head of the GIS Department at Polytech'Lille.

### Research

My specialty is the differential algebra and, more precisely, the simplification theory of nonlinear systems of differential equations. Targeted applications come from biological modelling and nonlinear control theory.

I have been a member of the scientific committee of the *Journées Nationales de Calcul Formel* since 2010 and General Chair of CASC since 2018. I co-organized the fifth edition of Differential Algebra and Related Topics (DART, 2013). I was the *Software Demonstration Chair* of the *International Symposium on Symbolic and Algebraic Computation* (ISSAC, 2012) and a co-organizer of a Dagstuhl seminar (2012). I was an invited speaker at CASC (2011), ICMM (Conference in the honor of professor Wu Wen-Tsun 90th birthday, 2009), *Algebraic Biology* (2008), DARCA (Conference in the honor of Giuseppa Carrà, 2008).

**2018**. Head of the Lille Partner of the ANR France-Germany PRCI Symbiont.**2018**. General Chair of the CASC conference with Werner Seiler and Vladimir Gerdt (as well as local organizer of 2018 edition).**2010**. Head of the Lille Partner of the ANR BLAN LEDA project, up to 2013.**2010**. Release of the MAPLE DifferentialAlgebra package, in collaboration with Edgardo Cheb-Terrab, in MAPLE 14 standard library. This package relies on the BLAD libraries, that I started to develop around 2000.**2006**. Habilitation à Diriger des recherches (May, 4th).**2000**. Two years CNRS delegation. Associated member of the INRIA SPACES project (Paris VI).**1995**. One-year post-doc at the*Symbolic Computation Group*of the University of Waterloo (Ontario, Canada). Release of the*diffalg*MAPLE package first version.**1994**. PhD thesis under the direction of Gérard Jacob, at the LIFL (June, 27th). First version of the*Rosenfeld-Gröbner*algorithm, which is the first complete elimination algorithm for polynomial differential systems.

### Teaching

Since 2010, I have been teaching almost exclusively in the *Génie Informatique et Statistique* (GIS) Dept at Polytech'Lille.

**2018**. Head of the GIS Department.**2012**. Head of the 5th year of the GIS Department.**2010**. Full Professorr at Polytech'Lille.

I have been in charge of the lectures Data Structures (GIS3) and Initiation to Research (GIS4) since 2010. Because of Serge Petiton's delegation, I was in charge of the Numerical Computing lecture (GIS3, GIS4, GIS2A5) for a few years.

I gave lectures at Kent university (Erasmus exchange, LTCC, collaboration with Markus Rosenkranz, 2010) and at Bonn university (collaboration with Andreas Weber, 2011).

I was *Chargé de Mission* by the University President for the implementation of the *Certificat Informatique et Internet* level one, in 2008-2010.

I was in charge of many other lectures the former years.
