Eric Fleury
INRIA Grenoble - Rhône-Alpes

Brief Bio
Eric Fleury is a professor at ENS Lyon, Computer Science Department since 2007. The ENS Lyon is one of the four Ecoles normales supérieures in France (more about ENS Lyon...).. Eric Fleury is the scientific leader of the INRIA D-NET research team / INRIA Grenoble - Rhône-Alpes research centers . D-NET team is located at ENS Ly on and hosted by IXXI. Eric is also in the scientific board and in the steering comitee of the IXXI: Complex Systems Institute.
From 2003 to 2007, Eric Fleury was a professor at the INSA de Lyon.He received his Master degree in Computer science from Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon, France in 1992. He received his PhD, degree in Computer Science, 1996 in communication and routing in distributed architectures from Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon , and the Habilitation a Diriger des Recherches specializing in group communication in computer networks in 2002 from the Insa de Lyon. From 1998 to 2003, he was a full research officer at INRIA (the french national institute for research in computer science and control). First in the RESEDAS project in Nancy and then in the ARES project since 2002.

His research interests are in the area of wireless network (ad hoc, sensor), pervasive communication and next generation communication network. Until 2007, he was co-heading the INRIA ARES project and he was the co-director of the CITI Lab (Insa de Lyon). He is coordinator for ENS Lyon, UCBL and INSA de Lyon of the research cluster ISLE (n°2) Rhône-Alpes (Computer, Signal and embeded systems)

Professor Fleury was a Visiting Scientist at Michigan State University during the 1997/98 academic year in the research team of Professor Philip K. McKinley. He was the program chair or co-chair of the following events: ACM DIALM, IEEE MSA, AlgoTel. He was the editor of the proceedings of these conferences and is the author of a book chapter on active networking. He is involved in many research projects in wireless networks and autonomic networking in France and Europe. Since 2001, head of the ResCom Networking group (600 researchers) of the CNRS National Coopera- tive Structure « GDR ASR » on Architecture, Networks and Systems, member of the steering committee of the GDR ASR.

PhD Advisor of a dozen of candidates, all currently employed as research officers at Inria (G. Chelius, Nathalie Mitton), CNRS (F. Theoleyre), as assistant professors or in private R&D labs. Currents students are working on dynamic community uncovering, on Individual Based Investigation of Resistance Dis- semination and on Complex networks and overlapping community detection.

From September 2003 to September 2007, Professor Eric Fleury was the chair of the master in Networking, Telecommunications and Services inside the Master of research MaRIA of the University Lyon 1, INSA de Lyon, University Lyon 2, ECL.

From September 2007 to September 2009, Eric Fleury was the chair of the MASTER in fundamental computer science at ENS Lyon. Since September 2007 Eric Fleury is in charge of the new option in modeling complex systems for the Computer Science department. Since September 2009, Eric Fleury is the head of the Computer Science department of ENS Lyon
