The Laboratoire d'Informatique de l'Université du Maine (LIUM - EA 4023) was created twenty-five years ago. It gathers most teacher-researchers in computer science of the University of Maine. It is directed by Pr. Sylvain Meignier and it is composed of 24 teacher-researchers and 20 PhD students and non-permanent researchers. LIUM is composed of two research teams:
- a team working on Technology-Enhanced Learning (TEL), which includes twelve permanent researchers (professors and associate professors), with Pr Sébastien George at its head;
- a team specializing in automatic speech recognition and machine translation (Language and Speech Technology — LST), with twelve permanent researchers under the direction of Dr. Loïc Barrault.
