Image Sciences, Computer Sciences and Remote Sensing Laboratory
The Image Sciences, Computer Sciences and Remote Sensing Laboratory (LSIIT) is a mixed research unit (UMR UDS-CNRS 7005) of the National Scientific Research Centre (CNRS) and the University Louis Pasteur (ULP). Its activities lie in the field of information and communication sciences and technology, and are federated by the computer-generated (or digital) imaging. Fundamental as well as applied researches are developed in a wide spectrum of domains, including computer sciences, control systems and robotics, image processing and remote sensing. In all these fields, the image - real or synthetically generated, 2D or 3D, fixed or animated, multimodal - plays an important role.
The image is the goal itself of studies in geometric modelling and in animation, in visualisation and in image or image sequences processing. It is a complex data type, which is favoured in research on algorithms, computer programming, classification, data mining and visual servoing.
Its coding and transport feed research on communication networks, its processing's optimisation mobilises the competences in parallel computing. Its capture and analysis are essential for robot control by visual servoing, and it represents one of the fundamental bases of remote sensing studies. Finally the digital representation and computer manipulation of molecules are a must in bioinformatics.
The LSIIT has decided to mobilise its competences and to centre its valorisation projects on three broad transverse programs, along with other partners:
(1)Medical and surgical imaging and robotics,
(2)Virtual and augmented reality, simulation and High Performance Computing,
(3)Embedded mobile environments.

Cross-disciplinary research program
The LSIIT teams are integrated with the regional research poles of the CPER (Imaging Pole), with "Iconoval" (Imaging Pole of Alsace), with the national programs and actions of the CNRS, MENESR, RNRT, RNTS, INRIA and INSU. They participate in European contracts of the 6th PCRDT and of the ESA, and soon in the Networks and Integrated Programs of the 7th PCRDT. They have cooperation agreements with numerous research laboratories of foreign universities. The LSIIT develops partnerships with industrial companies, namely by the way of a technological research team involved in very high speed automatic windings (ERT #8). Finally, the LSIIT is one of the partner laboratories of the pole of competitiveness, with opening on to the world, "Therapeutic Innovations" (through its "Medical and Surgical Imaging and Robotics" activity).
Teaching and exchanges
The LSIIT members are actively involved in courses for the License and the Master's degree of the University Louis Pasteur (ULP) with specialisation "Computer Sciences", in the courses for the Engineer's degree of the "National Superior School of Physics of Strasbourg (ENSPS)", in the "Imaging, Information Sciences and Technology" Master and in the "Mathematics, Information Sciences and Engineering" Doctoral School. The laboratory welcomes yearly about thirty training students from various universities and engineering schools, as well as a dozen foreign visitors.
