Research field: Computer Science

Updated on June 4, 2013
Most of computer science researchers at UT1C belong to the l'IRIT laboratory (Institut de Recherche en Informatique de Toulouse).IRIT gathers researchers from the four main universities of Toulouse and the CNRS (National Center for Scientific Research). While most members of IRIT are located on the campus of Université Paul Sabatier,
UT1C premises gather 23 members (professors and associate professors), 24 doctoral students (of which 10 are in joint supervision with foreign universities) and 2 post-doctoral students.

Being at UT1C allows these IRIT’s members to undertake specific computer science research applied to social organizations, and to develop human or social aware approaches. This makes it possible for these researchers to establish connections with the other UT1C laboratories such as GREMAQ or LEREPS.

UT1C IRIT members belong to 6 of IRIT research teams (ICS, LILAC, MACAO, SIG, SMAC and VORTEX) and they address the following research  topics :

  • Human computer interaction engineering
  • Reasoning and interaction
  • Model driven engineering
  • Datawarehouse for decision making
  • Flexible modelling and manipulation of semi-structured data
  • Coordination of cooperative information systems
  • Cooperative behaviour of actors in virtual reality, Artificial life, Optimization
  • Cooperative systems as a support for decision making
  • Group decision support systems

UT1C IRIT members are involved in several research networks, at both European and national levels :

Through national and international projects, our researchers have established many partnerships with the industrial world :

  • ID-6
  • ITrust
  • SIMTECH (Australie)
  • Thales Communication.

This results in successful technological transfers and outlets, among which :

  • Virtual laboratory for the study of social organizations (SocLab),
  • Jackaroo, Logiciel primé par la Trading-Agent Competition,

Project Genetic Art, which won the 1st prize “Evolutionary Art” at the GECCO 2011 competition
