Research teams

The Gaspard-Monge computer science research laboratory (LIGM) is supported jointly by the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), by the Université Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée (UPEMLV), by ESIEE Paris and by l'École des Ponts ParisTech (ENPC).

The computer science research laboratory CERTIS of the engineer school École des Ponts ParisTech has joined us since october 2009. The number of permanent researchers working at LIGM is 68 (10 CNRS, 32 UPEMLV, 16 ESIEE, 6 ENPC, and 4 from other institutions). The number Ph.D.students is about 70.

The Gaspard-Monge computer science research laboratory carries out research in computer science. The actual themes of research include theoretical computer science, analysis of natural languages, image and signal processing, the common link being the use of formalized methods that aim to accurately describe the phenomena under study.

The computer science research laboratory is composed of five teams that can be identified thanks to their research themes which are at the origin of the projects of the laboratory. These themes are:

> Algebraic combinatorics and symbolic computation

> Models and Algorithmics

> Algorithms, architectures, image analysis and computer graphics

> Software, Networks and Real-time

> Signal and communications

The computer science research laboratory is a centre of scientific activity which is developing thanks to the contacts established between the University Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée and the different engineer schools (ENPC, ESIEE) found on the campus.

Researchers from the laboratory take an important part in the preparation of the Postgraduate Diploma (they teach courses, supervise students). They are members of the MSTIC Ph.D. School of University Paris-Est. The University Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée is also involved in developing international collaborations, which implies exchanging researchers, trainees and postdocs.
