Research at ISEP
Research at ISEP is organised within the framework of the LISITE (Laboratoire d’Informatique, Signal et Image, Électronique et Télécommunications) laboratory, which is constituted of two specialised research groups (DaSSIP and ECoS) but that can interact in the framework of multidisciplinary projects in collaboration with industrial and academic partners, whether they are French or international.
The LISITE includes some 40 researchers : comprises 25 researchers, eight of whom hold an Habilitation à Diriger la Recherche (HDR), more than twenty PhD students and post-doctoral fellows.
The LISITE laboratory is an associate member of the EDITE (Doctoral School on Computer Science, Telecommunications and Electronics) doctoral school in Paris and supervised by Sorbonne University.
Solutions through research
Research at ISEP is carried out within the framework of interdisciplinary projects in collaboration with numerous industrial and academic partners: large industrial groups as well as start-ups, engineering schools and universities, hospitals, public research laboratories.
It is state-recognised research (EESPIG label), which focuses on cutting-edge projects supported by public funds : The National Research Agency (ANR) funding, the single inter-ministerial fund (FUI), Investments for the Future plan, European projects, etc. The issues addressed cover the field of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) and are geared towards the challenges and applications of tomorrow.
ISEP also aims to train researchers through its teaching modules, its innovation programme and the supervision of numerous doctoral students within the EDITE doctoral school.
Interdisciplinary and applied research
The research activities of the LISITE laboratory are in line with the school’s slogan “digital technology at the service of mankind”. It is in this perspective that all the LISITE’s skills in electronics, telecommunications, networks and security, computing, signal and image processing, and data sciences are exploited in interdisciplinary projects with societal aims and issues.
Fields of application
Partnership and collaborative research
Since its creation in 2006, the LISITE has been working to develop partnership and collaborative research. Within the LISITE, various projects have been carried out in collaboration with academic and industrial partners. The research is notably financed by the National Agency for Technical Research (ANRT), the ANR, the European Union funds, University Hospital Research Funds (RHU) and the FUI.
A strong synergy Teaching-Research
Isep’s teacher-researchers participate in the implementation of research activities in the engineering training courses offered by the School. The programmes are regularly updated according to the latest technical and technological advances linked to research. Students work on research initiation projects through internships. They have the possibility of pursuing a doctorate.

Research at the LISITE is organised through two main research groups that are :
Data Science, Signal and Image Processing
Head : Prof. Florence Rossant
The DaSSIP research group focus is on the processing, management and analysis of data, both structured and unstructured. These are massive data and signals from connected objects, sensor networks, the Internet and cellular networks, or images acquired in the context of medical or satellite imagery. The design of distributed architectures (cloud computing, blockchain) for data storage and processing, as well as the interoperability of heterogeneous systems are also among the issues addressed by the group. Artificial intelligence is at the heart of the methods implemented for the interpretation and extraction of information.
The main research focuses are:
- Massive data analysis and data flows,
- Image analysis in the medical and satellite imagery fields,
- The coding of video streams, the reconstruction of signals from parsimonious decompositions,
- Distributed architectures for the storage and data processing,
- Interoperability of distributed and/or heterogeneous systems,
- Human-Computer Interaction, with applications in the field of health and education.
Electronics and Communication System
Head : Dr. Lina Mroueh
The ECoS group focus is on the design and optimisation of embedded systems and connected objects. Hardware design challenges relate to the miniaturisation of electronic circuits, energy autonomy, the implementation of indoor geolocation systems, and the reduction of complexity of electronic systems implemented on various platforms. From the communication network point of view, the topics addressed by the ECoS group aim at designing low energy consumption waveforms, improving resilience and reliability in the network and developing protocols to secure exchanges.
The main research focuses are:
- Energy recovery and remote powering of sensors,
- The design of integrated circuits, memories, processes and printed electronics,
- Digital implementation on various platforms and radio software,
- Indoor geolocation with visible light,
- Waveform design for 5G+ networks,
- Routing, virtualisation and software networks,
- Cybersecurity and blockchain.
