A school for Engineers - Meeting the challenges of digital, energy and environmental transformation.

IRISA (Institut de recherche en informatique et systèmes aléatoires), founded in 1975, is a joint research centre for Informatics, including Robotics and Image and Signal Processing. On these themes, Irisa is positioned as the premier research laboratory in Brittany with campuses in Rennes (35), Vannes (56), Lannion (22), and Brest (29).

750 people, 40 teams, 7 departments (Large Scale Systems/Networks, telecommunications and services/Language and Software Engineering/Digital signals and imaging, robotics/Media and communications/Data and knowledge management) explore the world of digital sciences to find applications in healthcare, ecology-environment, cyber-security, transportation, multimedia, and

With 8 trustees (CentraleSupélec, CNRSENS RennesInriaINSA RennesInstitut Mines-TélécomUniversity of Southern Brittany (UBS), University of Rennes 1), IRISA forms a research cluster of excellence in the domain of Digital Sciences, with scientific priorities that include bioinformatics, software and system security, new software architectures (from IoT to Manycores and Cloud computing), and virtual reality.

The Technical University of Munich (TUM) is one of Europe’s top universities. It is committed to excellence in research and teaching, interdisciplinary education and the active promotion of promising young scientists. The university also forges strong links with companies and scientific institutions across the world. TUM was one of the first universities in Germany to be named a University of Excellence. Moreover, TUM regularly ranks among the best European universities in international rankings.

German-French Academy for the Industry of the Future

Bring new paradigms of the industry of the future

In the framework of the partnership between the French Alliance for Industry of the Future and the German platform Industrie 4.0, IMT (IMT) and Technische Universität München (TUM) decided to create a German-French Academy for Industry of the Future.

Within the framework of the academy, IMT and TUM will be able to move up a gear, develop projects already underway, and initiate new projects related to research and training.




 We are visionaries. We are differentiators. We are TIers. As a global semiconductor company operating in 35 countries, Texas Instruments (TI) is first and foremost a reflection of its people. From the TIer who unveiled the first working integrated circuit in 1958 to the more than 30,000 TIers around the world today who design, manufacture and sell analog and embedded processing chips, we are problem-solvers collaborating to change the world through technology.

Sensors (ISSN 1424-8220) is the leading international, peer-reviewed, open access journal on the science and technology of sensors published monthly online by MDPI. Impact Factor 2016: 2.677

The proceedings of the conference will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).
Selected papers will be invited to submit enhanced version for ITL letters

Brittany is one of metropolitan France's 22 administrative regions. It is managed by a local council, the Brittany Region, which has 2 assemblies: the Regional Council, elected by direct universal suffrage, which decides on regional policy, and the Regional Social and Economic Council which gives its opinion on the main issues that affect the region.
Chaired by Pierrick Massiot, the Regional Council intervenes in most areas that affect daily life in Brittany the future of the region. It seeks to develop the attractiveness of the region and the quality of life for the people who live there through its areas of competence: high school management, professional training, economic development and employment, regional development, research and innovation, transport, tourism, the environment, culture and sport.
Instilled with values that it defines as priority, the region's guiding principles are solidarity, sustainable development, openness to Europe and the world, female-male equality and better access to information technology in most of its missions.

Créé avec le soutien des pouvoirs publics, Pracom est né de la volonté de se doter en France d'un centre de référence pour le développement des communications et les systèmes associés. Pracom ouvre une nouvelle perspective de collaboration permanente et durable entre une institution de recherche publique de renommée internationale, IMT Atlantique (maintes fois primée pour sa recherche sur les turbocodes) et l'industrie, à travers une mutualisation de moyens et de savoir-faire.

Université Bretagne Loire is a federation, a « community of universities and institutions».

It is a territorial, gathering structure in charge of :
