Team "GRAFiCS"

The main objective of the GRAFiCS team is to develop, in close collaboration with industrial partners, digital and theoretical tools essential for decision-making in random environments in the insurance, finance and industrial sectors; energy and telecommunication. For this purpose, it offers to develop simplified mathematical models and associated numerical methods, in order to give a practical and utilitarian answer to some specific problems proposed by our partners, and to give an answer to some major applications. In our approach, our expertise in the development of efficient numerical methods in stochastic control, stochastic games as well as for models with uncertainty, combined with statistical and numerical tools, will be crucial, to provide tangible results, which can then be used to effective decisions by our industrial partners. His work tracks are:

  • Efficient algorithms, numerical and statistical processing for stochastic control
  • Data Mining, Scoring and Big data tools for decision support and actuarial calculation
  • Sensitivity analysis, quantification of model uncertainty and parameters
  • Analysis of rare events in optimal decision and risk management.

Wireless Communications Team

The Wireless Communication team works on various advanced topics on future wireless networks. Our research focuses on four main themes. The first theme is interference management, resource allocation and self-optimization. This theme is composed of five projects which are the management of interference in future wireless networks, Device-to-Device (D2D) communication for public security, inter-operator cooperation for green communication, self-organization in heterogeneous LTE-Advanced networks and radio resource management for Machine-to-Machine communications in future wireless networks. The second theme concerns cognitive radio communication in which we conducted the Radio-Cognitive project and mapping the spectral occupation of the El Ghazala area. We are also interested in optical communication, more specifically in open space optical systems for future networks. The third theme concerns security in future wireless networks.

Team "MINOS"

The networks of the future have several new characteristics and raise several new challenges: increased intelligence in the heart of the network, a convergence of heterogeneous technologies and solutions, mobility and democratization of access to services, a federation of billions of machines and individuals. They also provide support for innovative ideas and implementation of customizable applications. Increasing traffic carrying several types and large amounts of data. Given these new challenges, this architectural complexity and this increasing use; the internet of the future must keep the advantages of the current Internet: its openness, its neutrality, its versatility and its adaptability. These advantages have made the success of the internet concept. It must, in addition, consolidate and improve other important properties in order to meet the disadvantages of the current Internet and to take into account the evolution of demand and technologies. The Internet of the future will have to be a network of trust, a measurable and predictable network, an engine of innovation and creation. The MINOS team's themes and research axes revolve around these characteristics to keep and / or improve for the networks of the future:

  • Openness and neutrality of the Internet of the future
  • The Internet of the future: A trusted Internet
  • The Internet: a driver of innovation and creativity
  • Future Networks: Measurable and predictable networks and services.

Team "OSN"

Opportunistic Social Networks 

A social network is a dynamic structure describing a set of connections between a set of entities that may be individuals, companies, services or products. Since their appearance, the social networks have allowed a better visualization of the social structures by favoring regroupings conditioned by centers of interests. Social networks also allow a better visualization of information patterns, which remain of high added value in terms of decision support. They also promote collaborative activity, which can be informational, cultural, scientific...

With the high availability of the internet, access to social networks has become simpler, leading to a strong convergence of collaborative structures and a consistency of rules observed.

It is within this framework that the activities of the "Opportunistic Social Networks" team take place, with the main objective being the development of support platforms for collaboration depending on the activity carried out, and support platforms. to the decision by means of the cartography of the social data.

REEE team

Renewable Energy & Energetic Efficiency :

Renewable Energy & Energetic Efficiency:

The energy transition is the international concern of the present respondent to the growth of energy consumption, the scarcity of oil production and climate change. It is the global solution that presents the transition from an energy model based on 80% on fossil fuels to a new model where non-carbon energies will be dominant. All the countries of the world are concerned, if some solutions can be deployed everywhere, others will be specific to countries or geographical areas depending on climatic, economic and social conditions. In addition, Tunisia's structural energy deficit continues to worsen from one year to the next, making Tunisia more dependent on fossil fuel supplies and the resulting geopolitical risks and more vulnerable to fluctuations in international prices. hydrocarbons.

The REEE team (Renewable Energies and Energy Efficiency) is interested in this area and mainly in the two themes: improving energy efficiency and renewable energies.
