About ISC-PIF

An inter-institutional organization. ISC-PIF is a unit of the National Center for Scientific Research (UPS3611), one of the largest french research organisation, and is in partnership with more than a dozen of Universities and other french research organisations, as well as with the city of Paris and Ile-de-France Region.This latter has given ISC-PIF the label of major research area since 2006 (Domaine d’Intérêt Majeur).

Interface between disciplines, but also between research organizations and higher education, the Complex Systems Institute of Paris Ile-de-France (ISC-PIF) is a place dedicated to the development of innovative and interdisciplinary research on complex systems at the crossroad between high performance computing and big data. It catalyzes, since 2005, the emergence of common and interdisciplinary practices, facilitating access to skills, work areas and pooled research resources. The residents of ISC-PIF, who are staff and student employed by the institute or by a partner institution, work on projects that are hosted onsite. They are the first contributors to the activities and dynamism of ISC-PIF.

Serving the common good and innovation. The activities of ISC-PIF are conducted and supervised by our team composed of highly qualified scientists affiliated with higher education institutions and a support staff dedicated to facilitating the researcher’s initiatives through communication, ressource sharing event organization, development and transnational activities. Our institution also interacts with the general public which can attend seminars and training sessions. Members of partners institutions can book a room at ISC for an event, access to “coworking” spaces and pooled ressources, increased visibility in development and transnational activities.
