ASPIQ (ASP technologIes for Querying large scale multisource heterogeneous web information), is an ANR white program that started in Oct. 2012. The project coordinator is Odile Papini (LSIS), and it involves partners from CRIL and LERIA.

The main objective of this project is to propose:

  • extensions of standard ASP for representing OWL2 tractable sublanguages;

  • new operations for merging conflicting information in this extended ASP;

  • the identification of subclasses of this extended ASP allowing for efficient query answering mechanisms;

  • an implementation of a prototype reasoning system.


Participants : Jean-François Baget, Marie-Laure Mugnier, Mélanie König, Michaël Thomazo.

Pagoda is an ANR JCJC (young researchers) that will begin in Jan. 2013. The project coordinator is Meghyn Bienvenu (LRI), and it involves partners from the EPI LEO, the LIG, and the Anatomy Laboratory of Grenoble.

The primary aim of this project is to help address challenges brought by scalability and the handling of data inconsistencies by developing novel OBDA query answering algorithms and practical methods for handling inconsistent data.


Participants : Michel Leclère, Michel Chein, Madalina Croitoru, Léa Guizol, Akila Ghersedine, Rallou Thomopoulos, Marie-Laure Mugnier.

Qualinca is an ANR Contint project that started in Apr. 2012 and will end in Sept. 2015. The project coordinator is Michel Leclère (GraphIK), and it involves partners from LRI, LIG, ABES and INA.

The main objective is to elaborate mechanisms allowing to:

  • evaluate the quality of an existing documents base;

  • maintain a given level of quality by controlling updating operations;

  • increase the quality of a given base;

  • develop generic methods that take into account the quality of a given base (for instance for searching documents or interconnecting bases).

Competitivity Clusters

We are taking part in the Laboratory of Excellence ("labex") NUMEV (Digital and Hardware Solutions, Modelling for the Environment and Life Sciences), led by University of Montpellier 2 in partnership with CNRS, University of Montpellier 1 and Inria. This project aims at developping information and communication technologies for environmental and life sciences. We are participating to one of the four axis, namely "Scientific Data: processing, integration and security".
