Joint Bell Labs INRIA Laboratory

Participants : Eric Fabre, Albert Benveniste.

Started January 2008.

The Joint Bell Labs INRIA Laboratory is the ongoing framework for the overall research cooperation between Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs and INRIA. This joint Laboratory was launched in January 2008.

It is organized into three Actions de Recherche (ADR) :

Overall, the joint lab involves about 50 people. It is jointly headed by Olivier Audouin (BellLabs, president), and Albert Benveniste (INRIA, president of the Scientific Committee). The lab organizes bi-yearly seminars with progress reports and keynotes by key engineers from Alcatel-Lucent — the first one was about LTE (Long Term Evolution) by Denis Rouffet and the second one was about optical networks, by Paolo Fogliata, both from business divisions.
