On the 13th October at 2pm CET, Yves Frantz successfully defended his work entitled: "Stochastic Simulation of Karstic Systems".

Congratulations to Yves and thanks a lot for the PhD committee members (Anne Johannet, Nicolas Massei, Philippe Renard, Valérie Plagnes, Sophie Viseur) for their participation !



The RING Team is seeking outstanding PhD candidates to address research questions in integrative numerical geology. PhD topics outlined below, can be tailored to the interests and experience of the successful candidate. These full-time positions are for a three-year term and shall start in fall 2020.

PhD Proposal 1: Stochastic seismic structural interpretation of geological faults

PhD Proposal 2: Geomodel updating and transdimensional flow inverse problems

Dear Colleagues, dear Friends,

It is a pleasure to introduce this new volume of proceedings of the RING Consortium Meeting and to look back at a year of Research in Integrative Numerical Geology. As each year, this volume combines papers presenting new methods and applications to integrate not only data, but also concepts in subsurface models. These papers were written by the students and researchers of the RING Team, most of them supported by the RING consortium members, and papers contributed by sponsors and guests. I would like to express my sincere appreciation to all the authors for their contributions and to the industrial and associate RING Consortium members for their invaluable support.

May this holiday season be filled with love, friendship, happiness, sharing …

Best wishes to you!


Congratulations to Dr. Gabriel Godefroy who sucessfully defended his PhD on kinematic and stochastic fault modeling on the 29th of March 2018! You can have a look at the presentation here
