Cooperation with LyonGame
Artis is developing its links with the gaming industry in Rhone-Alpes by taking an active part to the exchanges and collaborations piloted by the Lyon Game Association. This association, which is granted a ``Pôle de compétitivité'' works actively to favor game-related business development and academic collaboration between studios and laboratories. Through it, Artis has a CIFRE Phd student Lionel Atty co-directed with Eden Games and working on real-time realistic rendering (see section 7.2 ). Three researchers are working with Phoenix Interactive, either for short-term consulting or for long-term research projects. One Phd student, Thierry Stein, has started his research on a subject defined after discussion with the game designer of Phoenix, Marc Albinet. Xavier Décoret is a member of the scientific committee of the ``Pôle de compétitivité''.
