Institut image research team is integrated in the laboratory for the engineering of physical and digital systems (LISPEN) of Arts et Métiers. The LISPEN gathers around 100 people (professors, engineers, PhD students, administrative and technicial staff) located on Aix, Chalon and Lille campuses of Arts et Métiers. Research works focus on managing the development and exploitation of multi-physical and virtual dynamic systems for the industry of the future.
