Cédric Tavernier Biography

Technologist in radiodiagnostic training I have for passion the computer tool and the programming. So I have participated in many open-source projects as volunteer such as OsiriX, DCM4CHEE, ImageJ, iRad related to my professional field. In 2010 I created IMAGE ET to get a development environment based on the modalities (scanography, digital radiology, ultrasound, …) and still today we support several open-source projects in imaging and propose training, integration, maintenance and support on these open-source software.
We now offer access to the modalities (Scanography, digital radiology, CT and ultrasound) to the new company B.C.R.X (Bretagne Contrôle par Rayons X or Bretagne X-ray Control)

Marie-Anne Paradis Biography

I’m currently working with Archeo-Mamu for summer 2017 on a variety of archaeological projects in close collaboration with the First Nations communities of the Northern Coast of Quebec.
I’m also working on a master’s degree in archeology at Laval University. I’ve also been working in historical and prehistoric archeology in Quebec since summer 2016. My master’s project involves, among other things, the 3D modeling of the architectural plans of the Second Intendant’s Palace (1713 – 1725) in collaboration with Îlot des Palais in Québec. Before getting involved in archaeology, I completed my studies in journalism in 2008. I also studied international relations and modern languages from 2009 to 2012.
