The Laboratory of Computer Science of Paris 6 (LIP6), Pierre et Marie Curie University (UPMC) and French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), UMR 7606 UPMC. CNRS is a computer science software research laboratory dedicated to the displaying and the determination of essential issues driven by applications. It is likewise commited for the usage and the approval through scholastic and modern organizations. The LIP6 represents 195 researchers, 25 engineers and staffs. Uniiversity hosts more than 200 PhD students, around 80 post-doctors and non-permanent staff and about a hundred trainees. Safety, security and reliability; Data science, intelligence and optimization; Smart devices are the main focuses. Vanda Luengo, Antoine Joux and Giovanni Pau are the three professorships hosted by LIP6.
The research is organized into teams of around twenty and are sub divided into 6 thematic departments which includes Scientific Computing, Decision, Systèmes Intelligents Recherche opérationnelle, Databases and machine learning, Networks and Systems, Complex Systems, System-On-Chip. INRIA Paris – Rocquencourt is common for three teams. The LIP6 currently hosts an ERC "Flow Machines" led by François Pachet and two chairs: Giovanni Pau (UPMC Chair, Atos, Renault: The connected car) and Antoine Joux (Chair UPMC Foundation UPMC: Cryptology). The scientific production represents more than 400 publications per year and around sixty theses are defended each year, with 60 patents and resulting softwares . Four faculty members are members of the "Institut Universitaire de France".
The laboratory has recurrent international cooperations within its activities. It maintains close relationships with universities from many countries such as Brazil, the United States, Japan, China and numerous European countries.

The lab is deeply involved in teaching its research in master degree. The graduate school of Paris EDITE (Ecole Doctorale d'Informatique, Telecommunication et Electronique de Paris) hosts the PhD students of the laboratory.
ERC (European Research Council) advanced grants will allow the research leaders of any nationality and age for pursuing ground-breaking, high-risk projects that opens new path in certain research fields or domains. The upcoming events conducted by LIP6 are The First European Multidisciplinary Conference on Global Internet Governance Actors, Regulations, Transactions and Strategies, reproductibility en Calcul et Informatique Scientifique and Ecole d'été sur les réseaux de communication - Virtualisation et dematerialisation.
