IMAGINE is a research group in computer vision, machine learning and optimization of the École des Ponts ParisTech (a.k.a. ENPC). It is affiliated to the Gaspard Monge Computer Science Lab (LIGM) of the University Paris-Est (UPE).

IMAGINE used to be a joint project with the Scientific and Technical Center for Building (CSTB) [2009-2016]. It was also associated with Nikos Paragios' group at Ecole Centrale Paris (ECP), now CentraleSupélec, within the Center for Visual Computing (CVC) [2011-2013], now the Digital Vision Center (CVN).

After having worked on programming languages, software engineering, security and natural language processing, I have now turned to computer vision: I have joined the IMAGINE group in December 2009, and in June 2019 (staying part-time in IMAGINE).

I am interested in the reconstruction of 3D models from images and range data, regarding both geometry and semantics, in particular with applications to building and city modeling:

I was the coordinator (PI) of ANR project Semapolis (2013-2017) on the Semantic Visual Analysis and 3D Reconstruction of Urban Environments.

More recently, I have also been interested in computer vision for robotic applications in the context of civil engineering as well as safe driving and autonomous vehicules, starting with:


Ingénierie de la spécialisation de programmes 1
(principes et applications)

Ingénierie de la spécialisation de programmes 2
(techniques avancées)
The publisher had these
two volumes transmogrified
into some sort of
technical English
and bundled into a single book
titled Program Specialization.
Please refer to the French version if you come across inconsistencies in the English one.

Selected Publications in Computer Vision & Geometry Processing

You may also take a look at my publications in other lives, concerning natural language processing (NLP) as well as programming languages, software engineering and security.
