Laboratory of
signals and systems

The laboratory

The Laboratory of Signals and Systems (L2S, UMR 8506) is a French research laboratory created in 1974, located in Paris-Saclay University, and jointly operated by the CNRS, CentraleSupélec and the University of Paris-Saclay.

Research at L2S focuses on fundamental and applied mathematical aspects of control theory, AI, data science, information, signal and image processing, communication, and network theory.

The laboratory was evaluated by HCERES in 2018 and will be evaluated again in 2023.

Research fields

Systems and Control

Our research in area of control systems covers both methodological developments and concrete applications. It addresses analysis, modeling, and control problems in fields ranging from biology to power systems engineering. Methodological developments concern, among others, hybrid systems, delay systems, and model predictive control, with a particular emphasis on nonlinear systems. These activities are often carried […]
