Ecole Suprieure dIngnieurs en Electronique et Electrotechnique

The ESIEE (Ecole Suprieure dIngnieurs en Electronique et Electrotechnique: ESIEE - Noisy Le Grand) group is a center for higher education in technology and science of the Chambre de Commerce et dIndustrie de Paris. It is situated within the Cit Descartes that groups the Universit de Marne la Valle (UMLV), the Ecole Nationale des Ponts et Chausses among other higher educational institutes and research and development centers. It offers engineering curricula in the fields of electronics and microelectronics, signal processing and telecommunication, control and embedded systems and computer science. ESIEE has an active research program and is a partner of the UMLV in the doctorate program. The ESIEE Group will be involved in vAssist mainly through its Algorithm IT Department Laboratory. The fields of interests of ESIEE are teaching, research, and development carried out by IT department with a focus on information systems, i.e. assemblies of hardware and software components used for the transmission, processing, and storage of data. Different research topics deal with A) Algorithms and modeling: including combinatorial optimization, physical and biological algorithms, distributed and parallel algorithms, stochastic algorithms, and Markov models. B) Architecture design: including co-design, computational architectures and models, machine architectures, mapping algorithms on architectures, and dedicated circuits (e.g., specific integrated circuits, reconfigurable circuits, and DSP processors). C) Software architectures and distributed information systems: including distributed databases, object-oriented languages, software development methods, and integrated software. D) Discrete structures and imaging: including discrete topology, graph theory, ordered sets, and discrete models for imaging, information processing and physics. The major focus of applied research is on E) Imaging: including medical and biological imaging, image compression and coding, microscopic image analysis, and image segmentation. Further, F) Integrating engineering and life sciences: including cell dynamics and modeling, medical monitoring and diagnosis, and telemedicine.
