Institut Villebon Georges Charpak

Institut Villebon Georges Charpak is a new school destined to scientific students that show great curiosity for science but do not find their way in the classical learning methods. It was created by ParisTech, University Paris Descartes (Paris V), University Paris South (Paris XI) and by the Paris Saclay Campus and it is supported, through …

FIT is a platform construction project funded by the “Equipements d’excellence” call. It aims at building a large-scale and federated experimental platform that can be accessed by researchers worldwide to conduct experiments in the Internet of Things. It is composed of wireless sensor networks platforms, cognitive radio platforms and wireless (SDN) platforms, interconnected together through a federation architecture.


Digicosme is a Labex (Laboratoire d’excellence) created in 2012 on the topic of digital worlds. Gathering the main actors from the Saclay/Orsay/Palaiseau activity center, it aims at federating research on software and network aspects of computer science. More information:

SEIDO Joint Lab

SEIDO is a joint lab between Telecom ParisTech and EDF R&D on the Internet of Things and on its security in next generation electrical networks. Started in 2012, it deals with performance and security of micro-grids, smart grids and smart cities. More information can be found here (in French)


The idea with COST-TERRA is to establish a multi-disciplinary European forum, a Think-Tank, focused on coordinating techno-economic studies for the development of a harmonised European regulatory framework to facilitate the advancement and broad commercial deployment of Cognitive Radio/Software Defined Radio (CR/SDR) systems.


Habitele is an ANR-granted project around the sphere that is created by a user’s mobile phone. In this project Telecom ParisTech is interested into privacy issues and trust relationships. A user’s identity is disclosed to multiple service providers who are supposedly trusted. However, leakages can happen and we are currently working to characterize the frequency of such issues.


The CORMORAN project aims at figuring out innovative communication functionalities and radiolocation algorithms that could benefit from cooperation within and between Wireless Body Area Networks (WBAN). More precisely, the idea is to enable accurate nodes/body location, as well as Quality of Service management and communications reliability (from the protocol point of view), while coping with inter-WBAN coexistence, low power constraints and complying with IEEE 802.15.6 standard.


The SMART Labex project aims globally to enhancing the quality of life in our digital societies by building the foundational bases for facilitating the inclusion of intelligent artifacts in our daily life for service and assistance. The project addresses underlying scientific questions raised by the development of Human-centered digital systems and artifacts in a comprehensive way. More …

SINARI is an ANR research project that aims at studying and dealing with the security and safety-related interdependencies between telecommunication networks and the power grid.


The Diaforus project aims at building a framework to facilitate the deployment of a wireless sensor network for area surveillance. Sensors are supposed to be placed around an area of interest and should auto-organize from this point to report meaningful events to a central coordination point while filtering false alarms. Diaforus relies on standard communication layers: Wavenis (Coronis systems technology) at the physical and MAC levels and µIP at the network layer (using RPL for routing).

Euro NF

Funding: IST FP7 Network of Excellence Web: http:// Euro NF gathered 35 partners, spanning over all Europe, around the theme of the Internet of the Future. This European initiatives aims at enhancing collaborations between different institutions, exploring every technological and socio-economical aspect of the Internet evolutions.


Funding: IST FP6 Integrated Project Project Leader: Fraunhofer IAIS Web: IRRIIS aims at studying and proposing software-based solutions to the problem of Critical Infrastructures Interdependencies. This project focuses on the interdependencies between telecommunication and power networks. In this context, it aims at better characterizing the dependencies that may exist between these two very different domains’ infrastructures …

Funding: ANR RIAM program Partners: Trimaran Our contribution in this project focuses on applying ad hoc networking techniques to enhance communication capabilities of GPS-enabled tracking devices used in cyclist races. As these races often pass through areas in which cellular coverage is poor, we study the feasibility of using ad hoc routing protocols between lightweight devices …

Funding: GET Period: 2006 i-Pluton has been a one-year collaboration between ENST and INT on the topic of DTN and ad hoc networking for spatial communications.

Euro FGI / Euro NGI

Funding: IST FP6 Network of Excellence Web: These two network of excellence have been the prequels to the current Euro NF NoE. They both brought together researchers from several institutions to exchange around the theme of next / future generation networks.


Funding: GET Period: 2005 Capt’Adhoc has been a one-year collaboration around the theme of cross-layer design for Wireless Ad hoc and Sensor networks. Involving teams from different schools of the GET, it allowed researchers to meet and exchange around these subjects.
