The Complex Systems Institute Paris Île-de-France offers several on-site and online services for scholars from labs hosted by ISC-PIF partner institutions. Except for the incubator, these services are free.

To use our services, the first step is to apply for some of them. This will implies that you sign the CNRS IT charts.

If you are not working in one of our partner institutions, but you would like to use some of our services nonetheless, please write to contactcom at iscpif dot fr.

400 m² dedicated to research

Level -1 : Opening of a space dedicated to art and science in 2017

Paris city Hall (Mairie de Paris) is currently renovating the ground floor et basement area of the building hosting ISC-PIF. Designed by Christian de Portzamparc, the two levels will be reorganised in a place dedicated to Arts and Science that will be shared between ISC-PIF, Musaïques association and the city of Paris.

A 130 seats auditorium will be made available for the organisation of conferences and cultural events, as well as a 60m² co-working space to host residents and research projects.

People affiliated with ISC-PIF partner institutions will benefit from a privileged access to those new facilities.

Floor 1 : Science Communication Services

As a research institute, it is our role to help researchers to promote and share their work with their peers and the general audience through the ISC-PIF website, social media and events. Complex systems requires a careful dissemination to reach diverse audiences : peers, public authorities, the general public… At ISC-PIF, we can help you to identify the best vehicle to share your work and develop the most accurate and accessible materials to reach the targeted audience:

  • events facilities
  • communication materials conception
  • news dissemination (ISC-PIF website, social media, newsletter)
  • website and blog development and mentoring
  • community outreach project

Floor 2 : Information Technology Services

Understanding complex systems requires specific tools; ISC-PIF offers several ways to lower the technological barriers toward accessing these resources.

  • IaaS – Infrastructure as a Service
  • HPC Solutions
  • PaaS – Platform as a Service
  • SaaS – Software as a Service
  • IT Trainings

Floor 3 : Science Incubator Residencies

Join our science incubator for a short- term (one week to a year) residency/project hosting and benefit from its dynamic and interdisciplinary environment!

As a resident, you have access to all our services (listed below), you benefit from our engineers assistance and you are fully integrated to the life of the institute.

Seminars, internal events, our famous weekly “residents tea time” are some of the many occasions you get to interact with researchers working in different field, from computing to physics through history, mathematics, economy…

Researchers affiliated to a lab hosted by one of our partner institutions are welcome to propose residencies for international visitors/research engineers, post-docs, students.
