LIFO researchers have ongoing projects on parallelized
data mining, text mining and natural language processing among others.
As a result there are possibilities for local interactions on
many fronts. For intensive computations and large storage capacity,
a PC cluster has been installed at LIFO in early 2001.
The laboratory has its own specialised library (approx. 800 mostly
recent books), access to electronic libraries and to INRIA's
bibliographic services.
Orléans lies 110km south of Paris, has approximately the same climate,
and 1/3 the housing cost. It is a city of 160 000 with
its own national theater, mediatheque (multi-media city library) and
modern Tramway connection to the University campus.
