CIMI stands for « Centre International de Mathématiques et Informatique de Toulouse ». It is one of the Excellence Laboratory chosen by the ANR for the period 2012-2020 as part of the national programme of « Investments for the Future ».

CIMI is establishing itself as a leading international center in mathematics, computer science, and their interactions. This original combination within a single structure goes beyond the current conventional collaborations and creates a real synergy suitable for achieving global excellence in research and in exploring innovative research areas, and has already led to the creation of common research project teams between the two institutes.

The means provided by the LabEx program allow CIMI to be an international reference center, attracting high-level scientists, Doctoral and Post-Doctoral students (French and foreigners). CIMI also coordinates important educational projects to attract the very best students at the Master level.

A cooperation agreement has already been signed with the Institut de Recherche Technologique Saint Exupéry to develop further cooperation with the aeronautical community in different areas such as machine learning or optimization.

This website intends to highlight the skills, expertise, and know-how of the two institutes IMT and IRIT. It is designed to be a tool to present to industrial partners the fields of interest and specific competences of CIMI researchers and teams. It should allow for industrial companies to identify specific scientific domains delivered by CIMI teams. The current website presents an overview of the scientific teams involved in the LabEx, their scientific achievements and their possible applications.
