University Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée (UPE-MLV) will be participating to the project through one of its laboratories: the Gaspard Monge Computer Science Laboratory (LIGM). LIGM conducts research in diverse aspects of computer science and its applications. It has been established in 1992 and is now a joint research unit (UMR 8049) of the National Center of Scientific Research (CNRS), the University Paris-Est Marne la Vallée (UPE-MLV), ESIEE post-graduate engineer school, and ENPC post-graduate engineer school. Initially formed around two themes, Theoretical Computer Science and Natural Language Processing, the laboratory now addresses multiple application domains of Computer Science as well as Information and Communication Technologies. The common link being the use of formalized methods that aims to accurately describe the phenomena under study. The laboratory is currently composed of 126 researchers (66 researchers and 60 Ph.D. students) spitted on five research departments: Algebraic combinatorics and symbolic computation; Algorithmics; Algorithms, architectures, image analysis and computer graphics; Computational linguistics; Signal and communications . The “Protocols, Architectures and Software for Network” (PASNet) research group of the Algorithmics department is the group that will participate in the SAN project. The computer science research laboratory is a centre of scientific activity which is developing thanks to the contacts established between the University Paris-Est de Marne-la-Vallée and the different post-graduate engineer schools (ENPC, ESIEE) found on the campus.
