National Initiatives

Grenoble Idex projects

Mistis is involved in a newly accepted transdiciplinary project NeuroCoG (December 2016). F. Forbes is also responsible for a workpackage in another project entitled "Institut des sciences des données".

Competitivity Clusters

The MINALOGIC VISION 4.0 project:mistis is involved in a new (October 2016) three-year Pôle de competitivité Minalogic project. The project is led by VI-Technology (, a world leader in Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) of a broad range of electronic components. The other partners are the G-Scope Lab in Grenoble and ACTIA company based in Toulouse. Our goal is to exploit more intensively statistical techniques to exploit the large amount of data registered by AOI machines.

Defi Mastodons CNRS

Defi La qualité des données dans le Big Data (2016-17). S. Girard is involved in a 1-year project entitled “Classification de Données Hétérogènes avec valeurs manquantes appliquée au Traitement des Données Satellitaires en écologie et Cartographie du Paysage”, the other partners being members of Modal (Inria Lille Nord-Europe) or ENSAT-Toulouse. The total funding is 10 keuros.

Defi Imag'IN CNRS

Defi Imag'IN MultiPlanNet (2015-2016). This is a 2-year project to build a network for the analysis and fusion of multimodal data from planetology. There are 8 partners: IRCCYN Nantes, GIPSA-lab Grenoble, IPAG Grenoble, CEA Saclay, UPS Toulouse, LGL Lyon1, GEOPS University Orsay and Inria Mistis. F. Forbes is in charge of one work package entitled Massive inversion of multimodal data. Our contribution will be based on our previous work in the VAHINE project on hyperspectral images and recent developments on inverse regression methods. The CNRS support for the network is of 20 keuros.

GDR Madics

Apprentissage, opTimisation à Large-échelle et cAlcul diStribué (ATLAS). Mistis is participating to this action supported by the GDR in 2016 (3 keuros).


MSTGA and AIGM INRA (French National Institute for Agricultural Research) networks: F. Forbes is a member of the INRA network called AIGM (ex MSTGA) network since 2006,, on Algorithmic issues for Inference in Graphical Models. It is funded by INRA MIA and RNSC/ISC Paris. This network gathers researchers from different disciplines. F. Forbes co-organized and hosted 2 of the network meetings in 2008 and 2015 in Grenoble.
