As I promised before, you’ll find here the text and slides of my Ph.D. thesis (btw text and slides are in French). The oral presentation was on March 24th, 2010 and everything was fine 🙂 Slides can be watched below.

A new website for Open Clip Art Library
A small post to welcome the new website for the Open Clip Art Library (OCAL). The OCAL was created more than 6 years ago and now has more than 24.000 vector illustrations in the Public Domain (in the SVG format that can be read by most graphic software). For me, a major improvement is the direct visualisation of thumbnails. In the previous version of the website, it was indeed painfull to open each result of a search in order to see if the illustration was what one was looking for. I’m using the Library since a few years and I am always amazed at the quality of most illustrations in the science and biology sections (the two sections I use the most).
So, if you didn’t know OCAL or didn’t have a look at it since a long time, it’s worth visiting their new website now!
Every year the same?
Every year, same resolutions. And same end? As I did previous years, I promised to myself to update this blog more often but it seems “daily life” events caught me up.
This year, I resigned from my position at Callataÿ & Wouters (C&W). A lot can be said and written but overall, it was an interesting experience. I’ve learned a lot about software development and how to manage people (or not). Finally, I’ve met some very interesting people. Let’s close this chapter now.
This year, I finally finished my Ph.D. thesis! The public defense will be on March 24th, 2010 in Liege (Roskam lecture hall). I’ll talk about rat hippocampus, proteins, stress, sleep (deprivation) and cognition. The final text will be available here after that.
And finally, I’m joining GSK biologicals. This is a new challenge but, from what I’ve seen so far, I think I’ll enjoy it a lot!
So I hope to resume posting more frequently on this blog (and with stuff more interesting than my own personal life) 🙂 Stay tuned!
