The six faculty members teach at all university levels (IUT, Licence, Master). The main courses they are in charge of are: Logics (L), Databases (M), Web Technologies (IUT), Artificial Intelligence (M), Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (M), Social and Semantic Web (M). Concerning full-time researchers in 2017, Jean-François Baget gave Master courses (40 h) and Rallou Thomopoulos was instructor for “Participative modelling and simulation”, a one week full time training school for INRA-CIRAD researchers (which is held once to twice a year, since 2016).

Moreover, faculty members have some specific responsibilities in the Computer Science Licence and Master:

  • Michel Leclère (Faculty): from 2011 to 2017, he managed the program “Data, Knowledge and Natural Language Processing” (DECOL), part of the Master of Computer Science (about 30 students). This program was co-managed with Federico Ulliana (Faculty) 2016, which became the coordinator for 2017.

  • Marie-Laure Mugnier (Faculty): from 2011 to 2017, she was (co)-director of the Master in Computer Science, which gathers 6 programs (about 250 students). She also led the Master project for the next four years (LMD4, from 2015/16 to 2018/2019).

  • Madalina Croitoru (IUT): since Sept. 2014, she manages the “année spéciale” (about 25 students).

Involvement in University Structures

  • Michel Leclère: since Sept. 2015, he is deputy manager of the Computer Science teaching Department from the Science Faculty, University of Montpellier. He is also coordinator for the Information Systems (“sytèmes d'Informations et salles informatiques”) for the Science Faculty, University of Montpellier.

  • Marie-Laure Mugnier: since 2016, she is member of the Council of the Scientific Department MIPS (Mathematics Informatics Physics and Systems) of the University of Montpellier - Marie-Laure Mugnier.
