AxIS is carrying out research in the area of Information Systems (ISs) with a special interest in evolving ISs such as Web based-information Systems. Our ultimate goal is to improve the overall quality of ISs, to support designers during the design process and to ensure ease of use to end users. We are convinced that to reach this goal, according to the constant evolution of web based ISs, it is necessary to anticipate the usage and the maintenance very early in the design process. Four main applicative objectives are then addressed by the team:

To achieve such objectives, we have set up in July 2003 a multidisciplinary team that involves people from different computer sciences domains (Artificial Intelligence, Data Mining & Analysis, Software Engineering, Document management) and recently from Ergonomics, all of them being involved in the world of information systems.
