IVADO researchers are affiliated with 3 departments and 6 internationally renowned research centres in operations research, big data processing and statistics, artificial intelligence and deep learning.

Département des sciences de la décision de HEC Montréal

Le Département de sciences de la décision, dont le directeur est monsieur Olivier Bahn, regroupe plusieurs professeurs qui s’intéressent aux mathématiques utilisées en gestion (statistique, recherche opérationnelle, analyse de décision, probabilités et mathématiques financières). Le Département offre des cours et des spécialisations dans les programmes d’étude du baccalauréat, du MBA, de la maîtrise en sciences de la gestion et du doctorat en administration. Plus particulièrement, au baccalauréat, il s’agit de la concentration et de l’option mixte en méthodes quantitatives, qui préparent bien aux études de niveaux supérieurs tel que la maîtrise en sciences de la gestion. Dans cette dernière, il nous est proposé les options Modélisation et décision, Intelligence d’affaires, Logistique ainsi que Ingénierie financière qui est conjointe avec le service de l’enseignement de la finance. Les professeurs du Service supervisent également les études de plusieurs candidats au doctorat en administration.

La recherche en sciences de la décision se fait dans différent volets : Développements théoriques et Développement algorithmiques.

Department of Computer Science and Operations Research

The Department of Computer Science and Operations Research (DIRO) was one of the 1st university-level computer science departments in North America. The DIRO is part of the Faculty of Arts and Science and has been training computer scientists for 5 decades now: our graduates have gone on to change the worlds of technology, business, academics, medicine, transportation, and communications. At the master’s and doctoral levels, the international-calibre research conducted in the DIRO is a major attraction for students looking for a cutting-edge environment in which to study and work.

The DIRO also maintains close ties with industry. For example, our NSERC-Ubisoft Industrial Research Chair focuses on applying the state-of-the-art artificial intelligence approaches developed in the DIRO to video games, and our Co-op program gives students the opportunity to gain relevant work experience in industry during their studies.

Département de mathématiques appliquées et de génie industriel de Polytechnique Montréal (MAGI)

Le département de mathématiques et de génie industriel (MAGI) de Polytechnique Montréal offre de nombreux programmes d’études en génie industriel et des enseignements en mathématiques au baccalauréat ainsi que des programmes spécialisés aux grades supérieurs.

Le département offre aux étudiants de tous les programmes de baccalauréat en génie la possibilité de compléter leur formation de spécialité en s’ouvrant au monde de la gestion et des mathématiques en choisissant une de nos quatre orientations : Innovation et entrepreneuriat technologique, Outils de gestion, Projets internationaux et Mathématiques de l’ingénieur. L’orientation thématique Développement durable est proposée également sous la responsabilité du Département des génies civil, géologique et des mines.

Grâce à son Centre des Études Complémentaires (CEC), le département offre aussi aux étudiants de tous les programmes du baccalauréat des cours de sciences humaines et sociales, incluant le travail en équipe, la communication, l’économie, la sociologie et l’éthique. Il permet aussi à tous les étudiants ne venant pas du système québécois de compléter leur formation grâce à des cours préparatoires leur permettant ainsi d’être admis dans n’importe quel programme de baccalauréat à Polytechnique Montréal.

Canada Excellence Research Chair in Data Science for Real-Time Decision-Making

The Canada Excellence Research Chair in Data Science for Real-Time Decision-Making is Canada’s leading chair in operations research. It aims to create new models and algorithms to quickly and efficiently manage large amounts of data from multiple sources in order to generate transferrable knowledge and automate decision making.

Inter-university research centre on enterprise networks, logistics and transportation

The CIRRELT is an interdisciplinary research centre dedicated to resolving decision-related issues linked to the design, management, operations and safety of logistics networks, services and infrastructures. It brings together researchers specialized in operations research, computer sciences, engineering, statistics and econometrics on projects in areas including transportation, energy, finance, health and communications.

Group for Research in Decision Analysis

The GERAD is an interuniversity research centre that brings together some ninety experts in quantitative methods for management, operations research, theoretical computer science, mathematics and mathematical engineering at HEC Montréal, Polytechnique Montréal, McGill University and UQAM. The centre’s objective is to develop mathematical decision-making concepts for major technological, commercial and economic systems and improve modeling based on statistics, simulation and data processing.

Montréal Institute for Learning Algorithms

The Montréal Institute for Learning Algorithms develops cutting-edge knowledge in deep neural networks and their application in vision, speech and language. The MILA is internationally recognized in the development of deep-learning algorithms and their application in various fields such as object recognition, automatic neural translation and speech recognition.

Tech3Lab

The Tech3Lab is the most important UX lab in North America. The Tech3Lab is an applied laboratory in management science specializing in the analysis of interactions between technological interfaces in organisations and their employees or customers. Our mission is to Perform applied research in the field of user experience (UX) conducting scientific advances, to create new UX evaluation tools for industry and research and to train UX research professionals for industry as well as for scientific research.

CRM (Centre de recherches mathématiques)

With its world-renowned thematic programming introduced by the CRM in the 80’s, its scientific workshops and outreach activities, its 1,500 annual visiting scientists from around the world, and thirteen laboratories directly involving more than 200 researchers from twelve major universities in Quebec and Ontario, the Centre de recherches mathématiques (CRM) is a major hub for the mathematical sciences. The dual structure on which the CRM is built — top level international scientific programming running in parallel with thirteen high-performance research laboratories — is unique in Canada. It is also unique in the world.

The Centre de recherches mathématiques (CRM) was founded in 1968. Under the direction of Professor Luc Vinet as of July 20, 2013, the Centre’s mandate is to serve as a national centre for fundamental research in mathematics and their applications. The CRM’s scientific personnel includes more than one hundred members and postdoctoral fellows. Further, the Centre hosts from year to year a large number of guest researchers.
