Laboratory for the Integration from Material to System

The IMS (Integration from Material to System) laboratory was established in 2007 through the merger of three research units: IXL, PIOM, and LAPS. The laboratory combines fundamental research, engineering, and technology, with a focus on an integrative system approach in the field of Information Technologies. IMS is a joint research unit of the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), the University of Bordeaux, and Bordeaux INP. Within CNRS, IMS is affiliated with the Institute for Engineering and Systems Sciences (INSIS) and the Institute for Information Sciences and Technologies (INS2I).

The laboratory' research themes

The laboratory's interdisciplinary approach and interconnected research themes ensure that it remains at the forefront of technological innovation.

Discover all research themes

IMS consists of 10 research groups, with each group coordinating research in its respective field and overseeing 2 or 3 thematic teams. In addition to its research groups, IMS also provides access to technological platforms and equipment that are available to both its own researchers and external research services.

Data is now being generated at the edge rather than in the large-scale data centers that form the cloud.
Digital sovereignty
With the deployment of large numbers of sensors and smart devices to form the edge of the Internet of Things to the scale of 50 billions and rising, data is now being generated at the edge rather than in the large-scale data centers that form the cloud. In this context, digital sovereignty refers to the ability to have control over our own digital destiny – the data, hardware and software that you rely on and create.
Resources are constrained, most importantly in terms of energy.
Energy sobriety
Resources are constrained, most importantly in terms of energy. Hardware is critical at this level and there is a clear need to explore the suitability of breakthrough emerging technologies to meet the energy-efficiency. From material and up to system level, this could also be achieved by adopting an holistic approach taking also into account the performance and compactness requirements.
The goal of environmental sustainability is to conserve natural resources and to develop alternate sources of power.
Ecological sustainability
The goal of environmental sustainability is to conserve natural resources and to develop alternate sources of power while reducing pollution and harm to the environment. In that way, research’s, from material up to system can be achieved to measure and track sustainability progress, optimize the use of resources, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and make possible a more circular economy. Also, digital technologies also enable innovation and collaboration.


Action Transverse Emergente d’Enjeu Sociétal

The ACTES, "Action Transverse Emergente d’Enjeu Sociétal", i.e. an emerging transverse action of societal challenge in english represent innovative research’s featuring collaborative works involving at least two IMS research groups. The ACTES are targeting societal issues among which the digital sovereignty, the energy sobriety and the ecological sustainability. The "ACTES" are meant to be driven at the cutting edge of the research groups knowledge leveraging their complementarity within the unique IMS lab value chain, from material to system.
