The LIP6, Sorbonne University and French National Center for Scientific Research (UMR 7606 Sorbonne University - CNRS), is a computer science research laboratory dedicated to the modeling and the resolution of fundamental problems driven by applications, as well as to the implementation and the validation through academic and industrial partnerships.
Research is performed by 22 teams organized around four transversal axes:
Three teams are common with INRIA Paris. We also host three ERC projects: In-situ Topological Reduction of Scientific 3D Data (TORI), lead by Julien Tierny, Quantum Superiority with Coherent State (QUSCO, starting, lead by ELeni Diamanti) and Modular Open Platform for Static Analysis (MOPSA, consolidator, lead by Antoiné Miné). We also had two other ERC grants obtained at LIP6 by François Pachet and Antoine Joux. LIP6 also hosts the chaire d'excellence of Vanda Luengo about computer based environment for human learning. Wa also hosted the chaire of Giaovanni Pau about autonomous vehicles (ATOS/Renault).
The scientific production represents more than 500 publications per year. approximately sixty theses are defended each year, with 84 patents and softwares resulting. Seven of our faculty members are (or were recently) members of the "Institut Universitaire de France".
LIP6 has recurrent International cooperations within its activities. It maintains close relationships with universities from many countries such as Brazil, the United States, Japan, China and numerous European countries. In addition to academic research, LIP6 has a long history of cooperation with industrial partners within many national, European or international projects.
LIP6 is very active within Sorbonne University and fosters transdisciplinary collaborations between the multiple research units of our university. For instance, LIP6 is a founding and active member of Tremplin Carnot Interfaces, a French state-funded structure aiming at gathering five laboratories around the Human/Machine interactions’ themes. LIP6 is also strongly involved in the SCAI initiative (Sorbonne Center for Artificial Intelligence) initiative launched in 2018 by Sorbonne Université.
LIP6 is deeply involved in teaching its research in master degrees. The doctorate school of Paris EDITE (Ecole Doctorale d'Informatique, Télécommunication et Electronique de Paris) hosts our PhD students.
