About the JFLI


The Japanese-French Laboratory for Informatics is a Joint International Unit (UMI) between three French institutions (CNRS, Inria and UPMC) and three Japanese institutions (University of Tokyo, Keio University and NII) . It was first created on January 1st, 2009 as an International Associated Laboratory (LIA) by 5 partner institutions: CNRS (Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique – National Center for Scientific Research, France), UPMC (University Pierre et Marie Curie – Paris 6), National Institute of Informatics (Japan), University of Tokyo and Keio University. It became a Joint International Unit (UMI) with the same partners on January 1st, 2012.

In October 2012, Inria and University Paris-Sud (UPS) joined JFLI as new partners.

On the basis of existing scientific cooperation between Japan and France, 5 topics were selected for their potential for fruitful collaborative research:

  1. Next Generation Internet: measurement and modeling, mobile networks, ad hoc networks, sensor networks, ambient intelligence & ubiquitous computing
  2. Grid Computing and High Performance Computing: programming paradigms and languages for next-generation supercomputers, algorithms for scientific computations, iterative methods and auto-tuning, cloud computing, runtime systems for heterogeneous machines, management of large data
  3. Software, Programming Models and Formal Methods: software verification and validation, formal methods, information security, engineering of ambient intelligence, constraint programming
  4. Virtual Reality and Multimedia: virtual reality, interfaces and interaction, multimedia content analysis and retrieval, digital contents
  5. Quantum Computing: quantum cryptography and communication, quantum algorithms, entanglement for novel quantum informational tasks, feasibility of large scale quantum computation and communication
