LIRIS, Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1

LIRIS (Laboratoire d’InfoRmatique en Image et Systèmes d’information) was created in 2003 through the merging of several former laboratories involved in Communication and Information Technology research. The laboratory involves 320 researchers from INSA de Lyon, Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1, Ecole Centrale de Lyon, Université Lumière Lyon 2 and CNRS.

The research activities of LIRIS are classified into two major categories: Image Processing and Data, Knowledge, and Services. The image processing department consists of five different teams that are working in three topics.

      • Cooperation, analysis and geometric modeling for 3D objects.
      • Simulation and realistic rendering and augmented reality.
      • information extraction and object recognition.

The data, knowledge, services department consists of five teams as well. These teams work in two areas: Knowledge discovery (data mining, modeling of complex systems, knowledge engineering), and Engineering data and services (security and confidentiality, data modeling, integration and querying, service composition).

LIRIS performs background research activity on both scientific subjects while developing applications focused on the activities of the company with three areas: digital entertainment, culture and heritage, and healthcare (medicine, biology, etc.)
