Researchers at the COMPLEXYS Institute develop specialised open source software tools as part of their research into complex systems in order to meet the specific needs of industry or organisations seeking tailored software solutions.

A significant example is the Zoo/phytoimage software developed by the Numerical Ecology of Aquatic Systems team, who carry out studies to automate the identification and measurement of plankton using numerical image analysis.


Another example is the open source software library Sismic (, developed by the Software Engineering Lab. This software allows to simulate, exist and test behavioural statechart models. This tool has already been used by several companies, and has given rise to a scientific publication (
