Presentation

The Laboratoire d’Informatique, de Robotique et de Microélectronique de Montpellier (Laboratory of Computer Science, Robotics and Microelectronics of Montpellier) is a is a joint research unit of University of Montpellier and the French National Center for Scientific Research (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique, CNRS). Its secondary supervisors are the University Paul Valéry Montpellier3 (UPVM), the University Perpignan Via Domicial (UPVD) and the National Institute for Research in Digital Science and Technology (INRIA).

It is located on the Saint-Priest Campus of the UM. Its research activities fully position the LIRMM at the heart of information, communication and systems sciences and technologies. The work is carried out in three scientific research departments, themselves organised into research teams.

The Computer Science Department’s research activities range from fundamental mathematics to applied research, and include: algorithmic graphs, bioinformatics, cryptography, networks, databases and information systems (data integration, data mining, consistency maintenance); software engineering (programming languages, objects, components, models); artificial intelligence (learning, constraints, knowledge representation, multi-agent systems); and human-machine interactions (natural language, visualization, semantic web and e-learning).

Harnessing the vitality of emerging technologies, LIRMM’s Microelectronics Department conducts specialized research on innovative solutions to embed additional intelligence into integrated electronic systems. The resulting scientific challenges include assessing the quality, reliability, testing, adaptability, efficiency, and security of these systems, while paying particular attention to digital security, energy efficiency, resilience, and handling complexity. Most of our activities find applications in high-performance computing hardware architecture, communicating objects for living things and environments, including harsh (spatial, radiative, high temperature) environments.

The research activities of the Robotics department focus on medical and parallel robotics (DEXTER team), perception and underwater exploration robotics (EXPLORE and ICAR teams) as well as human-robot physical interaction and humanoid robotics (IDH team). These activities are notably applied to manufacturing industry, healthcare, environment and human in his daily environment.
