Visiting - Master students, PhD students, Post-Docs

A number of resources need to be "activated" in order to begin to work in IRIDIA.

  • You need to provide two recent pictures of you (also in electronic format) for your student card and insurance and give them to Muriel Decreton.
    The student card will allow you to have a reduced price in the ULB cantine, as well as cinemas and other places advertising discounts for students.
  • You will need an entry in the IRIDIA people page.
    Contact the administrator of the people page (currently Eliseo Ferrante, he will need your personal information a picture and a link to your home page).
    If you will have a permanent position, make sure you have a page on the iridia web server first.
  • If you need an account on the cluster, please contact the system administrator of IRIDIA's cluster (currently Jérémie Dubois-Lacoste).
  • You are also encouraged to apply for a membership to the iridians mailing list, where you will be kept posted about dinners and other events we might organise. :-) You are more than welcome to propose events!

In this and this page you can find general information about living in Bruxelles (where to search for a flat, French courses, bureaucracy etc.)

For further questions contact Franco Mascia.

PhD students and Post-Docs only

  • Static IP address, WEB server space, and email@iridia.ulb.ac.be.
    Contact the system administrator of the IRIDIA's server (currently Giovanni Pini).
  • Account on the BACKUP server.
    Contact the system administrator of the IRIDIA's backup server (currently Eliseo Ferrante).
  • If you are supposed to have the key of the robotic lab (arena), Mauro Birattari can provide you a copy of the key.
  • If you need an SVN account or a password for the restricted areas of this wiki ask Alessandro Stranieri.
  • You can subscribe to the following two mailing lists:
    • Staff (if you are a new phd student or postdoc)
    • PhD Students(if you are a new phd student)
  • In this page you can find useful information concerning the configuration of email, printers etc.

If you work at IRIDIA for a longer period of time, probably you want also an email @ulb.ac.be. For registering you will need an "Enrollment number" and a "PIN-code/Numéro de lecteur". You can find them on your ULB card. Once you activate the account you can manage your account, access the intranet, and your webmail.


1. ^ a In order not to be submerged by spam, most of the lists accept posts only from email addresses that are in the subscribers list... meaning that if you subscribed to the Staff list with the address xxx@iridia.ulb.ac.be and try to send a message from your other addresses xxx@ulb.ac.be or xyz@gmail.com they will be discarded by the system.
If you have experienced such a problem, or want to be allowed to post from your other addresses, please contact the list owner providing the list of addresses to be added to the "white-list".
