Laboratoire d'Informatique de Grenoble
The Laboratoire d'Informatique de Grenoble (LIG, Grenoble Computer Science Laboratory) is the largest research laboratory of Informatics in Grenoble, France. It was created 1 January 2007, as the result of a union of the 24 research teams of the previous IMAG Institute and the INRIA Rhône-Alpes.
The scientific project of the LIG is "ambient and sustainable IT". The goal is to leverage the complementary nature and recognised quality of the 23 research teams of the LIG to contribute to fundamental aspects of the discipline (modelling, languages, methods, algorithms) and to create a synergy between the conceptual, technological and societal challenges that surround this theme.
The Grenoble Informatics Laboratory (Laboratoire d’Informatique de Grenoble - LIG) is a laboratory of quite some scale, the academic partners being:
The LIG is formed by about 500 people:
- 41% of PhD students,
- 26% of teacher-researchers,
- 14% of post-doc, invited, contracts,
- 10% of full-time researchers,
- 9% of administrative and technical staff.
LIG research covers a very large range of domains in Informatics. Topics includes for instance Software Engineering, Formal Methods, Multimedia, Natural Language Processing, Databases, Knowledge representation, Geographic Information Systems Virtual reality, Multi-agent systems, Distributed systems, Information systems, Quantum Computation, etc.
