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

Control and Systems

La recherche au sein du pôle automatique et systèmes porte aussi bien sur des développements méthodologiques que sur des applications concrètes de l’automatique. Elle aborde des problèmes d’analyse, de modélisation et de commande sur des domaines pouvant aller de la biologie à l’électrotechnique. Les développements méthodologiques portent, entre autres, sur les systèmes hybrides, les systèmes […]
