Paris 6 computer science laboratory - UMR 7606

LIP6 is a research laboratory jointly run by Sorbonne Université and the CNRS. With 128 full time researchers and 231 PhD students, it is one of the main computer science research laboratories in France, and the biggest computer science laboratory in the Paris region.


A few figures:

- 12 patents

- 36 systems or items of software distributed on the internet or by corporate agreement.

- 300 scientific publications per year

- 50 theses defended per year


The laboratory covers a broad spectrum of activities grouped into 5 departments: Scientific Computing; Decision, Intelligent Systems and Operations Research, Data and Artificial Learning; Networks and Distributed Systems, Embedded Systems.


In addition to academic research, LIP6 has a long tradition of cooperation with industrial partners in many national, European or international projects.


Two R & D centers have been established: CERME, European Center for Research in Micro-Electronics on embedded systems, and Euronetlab on the internet and telecommunications networks.


LIP6 is also involved in Paris regional business clusters: Cap Digital on digital content and System@ic on embedded systems.


It also shares joint teams with INRIA on the themes of symbolic computation and distributed systems. International cooperation is a constant for the laboratory’s activities.


LIP6 is a member of several top class networks and also maintains relationships with universities in Brazil, the United States, Japan and many European countries. The laboratory encourages collaborative projects and hosting visiting scientists. The laboratory is involved in research-related teaching, delivered through Sorbonne Université’s Master of Science and Technology.
