Scientists who study complex systems face many theoretical, methodological and technological challenges every day. At ISC-PIF, we believes that these challenges can be tackled through increased collaboration between researchers from different disciplines. This is why we propose the pooling of technical resources and infrastructures on the scale of the scientific community, and encourage the development of free and open software as well as the sharing of data, publications and replicability practices.
Understanding complex systems requires specific resources for their modeling, simulation and mass data analysis. ISC-PIF offers to residents and scientists affiliated to its partners several tools to reduce these technological barriers:
- Platforms and software (supercomputing, distributed computing, storage and big data mining)
- High Performance Computing (Grid and Cloud).
ISC-PIF is at the heart of a scientific project recognised by the Île-de-France Region as a Domaine d’Intérêt Majeur (DIM) and supported by the City of Paris.
This CNRS unit (UPS3611) brings together several of the most important institutional partners in France: CEA, EHESS, EPHE, ESPCI, INRAE, INSERM, IGN, Institut Curie, Institut Mines Télécom, MNHN, Université de Cergy-Pontoise, Université de Paris, Université Paris 1 – Panthéon Sorbonne, Sorbonne Université.
