L’Institut d’électronique et de télécommunications de Rennes est un laboratoire public qui regroupe des équipes de recherche venant de CentraleSupélec, CNRS (INSIS), Université de Rennes 1, INSA de Rennes, Université de Nantes. L’IETR accueille également des chercheurs associés par convention d’accueil (UBO, ESEO d’Angers, IFSTTAR-Nantes). Au total 380 enseignants-chercheurs, ingénieurs, doctorants et administratifs travaillant sur la technopole de Rennes Atalante.

CentraleSupélec présente ici 3 équipes de recherche.


The aim of the team is to propose algorithms to control large scale network systems. Considering that it is interesting to anticipate on known reference trajectories and disturbances and to take into account constraints and multi objectives, most activities are based on Model Predictive Control. In order to deal with the complexity of the considered systems, hierarchical and distributed control is mainly studied. A special attention is paid to the control of hybrid systems that involve both continuous and logical behaviors. This works are mainly applied to energy management and distributed generation integration. Energy management in buildings so requires to find the tradeoff between the energy consumption and the occupants comfort but also to integrate local renewable sources and to respond to grid demands. It is then necessary to control more complex systems that are set up in buildings and to optimize multi objective criteria such as energy, power, comfort, CO2 emissions and life time.


Launch of the Van Gogh project with the Technical University of Delft on Distributed MPC control of Hybrid systems.

Fast is specialized in expressions and emotion analysis. The goal is to quantify the amount of stress of people with depression, burnout, overtraining or post-traumatic disorders. Our core technology is based on 3D deformable models and multi-modal processing (audio, video and context) in order to analyze people face and behavior. With those tools we analyze the gaze, age, gender, identity and expression of unknown people.



The team has co-founded two startups (Dynamixyz and 3D Sound Labs), the latest one was created in January 2014.

SCEE team is focused on the study of future telecommunication systems (advanced multicarrier waveforms, 5G, Smart Grids, and green communication) based on the three concepts of Software Radio, Cognitive Radio and Green Radio. To do so expertise spans through the following three research areas: i) Digital Communications and Signal Processing, which includes deep background on digital communications and signal processing for cognitive radio systems (equipments and networks), ii) Embbeded Systems, that focuses on flexible reconfigurable architectures, security and demonstrators developments iii) Sensors for Cognitive Radio, with a focus on spectrum holes (white spectrum) detection.



Apart the fact that 2014 was the 10th year of SCEE team (a special day has been dedicated to this event the 27th of June), three events marked 2014:

  • the third edition of NextGWin conference held in Rennes. A worldwide panel of 20 top level invited speakers gave a large overview on further green wireless networks and especially 5G.
  • Spring School of Newcom# Network of Excellence whose topic was based on flexible multicarrier systems.
  • SCEE was part of ISWCS 2014 conference organization as Chair. Two research projects in which SCEE is partner have been selected for funding by the french national research agency (ANR): SOGREEN (Smart Grids and Cognitive Radio) and ACCENT5 (Device-to-Device Communications for 5G).
