The RSE and the French Embassy in London are collaborating in a three-year programme of science events designed to explore and publicly present areas of science where both Scotland and France have a powerful presence. On 13 February 2014, the RSE hosted one of these Franco-Scottish seminars which focused on the area of Computer Science. The workshop brought together academics and practitioners to exchange ideas and experiences on Computer Science in Scotland and France.
Four themes were selected for initiating new collaborations between Scotland and France to expand alongside ongoing strong research such as Formal Methods and Semantics Quantum Information. These themes were Algorithms and Complexity, Security, Modelling and Learning.
