30 years of GRAISyHM

30 years old already!


The GIS GRAISyHM is interested in automatic control in general, i.e. the science of systems, a discipline that is transversal to current economic development concerns concerning transport, materials, agri-food, the environment, health or advanced communication systems, for example. It is a Scientific Interest Group in Integrated Automation and Human-Machine Systems. It has been working closely with the Hauts-de-France region since 1993 and federates the regional automation laboratories. It is structured around scientific projects defined by a Scientific Council (meeting every month or so and led by the president and vice-president) and validated by a Steering Committee (meeting every year and led by the director). Since 2019, it has been structured around five major themes: human-machine systems (cross-cutting theme), signal and image processing, decision support in uncertain environments, control and command of multi-dynamic systems, and diagnostics, robust control and fault-tolerant control.

The GIS GRAISyHM is known and recognized at the regional, national and international levels through its various actions carried out since 1993: annual organization of the Regional Day of the PhD students in Automation, management of scientific projects (e.g., SUCRé inter-regional project, AIRR GRAISyHM project), management of research programmes (e.g., CPER TAT, ARCUS, ECO-NET), joint actions with other research groups (e.g., SAGIP, Gis CybCom), organisation of sessions in national or international conferences (e.g., ERGO-IA, IFAC WC, IEEE HMS), articles in journals.


  • 11 higher education and research institutions in the Hauts-de-France region
  • All the regional laboratories of computer engineering, signal processing and automation (section 61 of the CNU) of these institutions.
