Welcome to MIIRE website!

MIIRE (Multimedia, Image, Indexing and Recognition) is a research group of the LIFL (UMR CNRS 8022, University Lille 1, France) hosted by Telecom Lille (French engineer school – Grande Ecole d'Ingénieurs Française – of the Institut Mines-Telecom and University Lille 1).

The main focus of the Miire research group is on statistical 3D shape analysis and its applications in a wide range of fields such as: (1) segmentation, matching, and retrieval of 3D data, (2) face and facial expression recognition from data acquired with 3D scanning devices, and (3) 3D-data acquisition.
