INFINIS inauguration

LIA INFINIS is now officially in existence. To read more about the event that took place you may follow the links below:

Laboratoire International Associé (LIA) “INFINIS”

INFINIS is a French-Argentinean Laboratory (Laboratoire Internationale Associé) between Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) and Université Paris Diderot, on the one hand, and Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas (CONICET) and the Universidad de Buenos Aires, on the other. It is devoted to research in Computer Science.  Specific focus is placed on  formal methods, for modeling, verification and development of complex software artifacts.

INFINIS Laboratory has its roots in extensive scientific cooperation between France and Argentina in Computer Science that has taken place over time.

INFINIS’s mission is to foster sustained, long-term, dynamic cooperation with the aim of enriching scientific and technological activities, favoring the creation of intellectual property of added value and producing economic benefits to the Software Industry.

The acronym stands both for “INformatique Fondamentale, LogIque, LaNgages,  VérIficacion et Systèmes” and also “INformática Fundamental, lógIca, leNguajes, vérIficación y Sistemas”.
