Curriculum vitae :

William Derigent is a full Professor at the Research Centre for Automatic Control (CRAN), from the University of Lorraine, located in Nancy, France. After the obtention of a PhD in automated manufacturing in 2006, he dedicated his research time to study information management for intelligent products and especially communicating materials, namely materials embedding electronic chips, conferring augmented communication capabilities (data storage and communication). He has studied for about 10 years the different problems related to data modelling, synchronisation, selection and distribution related to these materials, on different case studies related to the manufacturing or the construction industry. In 2018, he began to explore the notion of cyber-physical production entity, considered as an abstraction of communicating materials, and to study Cyber-Physical Production Systems with a focus on digital twin creation. He is currently managing the French Project McBIM (for “Materials communicating with the BIM”) which aims to develop intelligent pre-fabricated concrete elements capable to store, manage and exchange data with their environment. During his career, he participated to more than 40 conferences, and published regularly in journals with high impact-factors.
