GIPSA-lab: Research and innovation

The GIPSA-lab scientific program is organized in three domains:

  • The Speech and Cognition Department research ranges from physics and cognition to communication; it is the largest speech department in the world and is highly visible internationally. It hosts well-known specialists in signal processing, acoustics, linguistics, and cognitive sciences, to study and model human speech communication. It increases knowledge of language and speech communication, studies and models speech signals together with the physiological and cognitive systems that process them and the linguistic systems that organize them, and creates virtual conversational agents able to communicate with humans.
  • The Images-Signal Department develops advanced models for images and signals by considering problems from physical, biological and technological systems. It shows its scientific excellence in image and signal processing and their application in many areas. It is internationally recognized, for example, for its work on geometric modeling, statistical signal processing and source separation, and in visual perception. It designs efficient algorithms and methods for the multidimensionality and multimodality aspects of images and signal processing, and validates these models through real applications. Areas of application include communications, biomedicine, earth sciences, diagnosis and monitoring, energy and environmental science.
  • The Control Systems Department researches dynamic systems, from modeling to control. It has a prominent first place for the number of authors of accepted papers in the two last IFAC control world congresses (Praha 2005, Seoul 2008). Its expertise is internationally recognized for example in non-linear, predictive and robust control, diagnosis, and networked control systems. The major research themes are modeling and analysis of complex systems, and development of advanced methodologies for control, observation, and diagnosis. Areas of application cover robotics and mechatronics, transport systems, processes and environment, micro- and nano-systems, health engineering, and biomechanical systems.

The GIPSA-lab teams collaborate with more than 100 scientific partners worldwide (bilateral relationships, running discipline-specific networks, European networks, and exchange programs such as Erasmus, Marie-Curie and Egide) as well as involvement in European NoEs. GIPSA-Lab has also organized several international conferences (IEEE GRSS Workshop on Hyperspectral Image and Signal Processing, MLSP'09) and summer schools. GIPSA-Lab researchers are also members of several International Programme Committees (GRETSI, CIFA, EUSIPCO, ICASSP, ICIP, MLSP, IGARSS, URBAN, ICPRAM, ACIVS, ECC, ACC, World IFAC).
