Ludovic Mé

Ludovic Mé was Professeur at Supélec and CentraleSupelec from 1988 to 2017. He his now in secondment at Inria where he is deputy scientific director, in charge of the strategy of the institute relatively to cybersecurity. 

His research field mainly focuses on intrusion detection and security supervision, but he has interest in virology, and auto-organized networks (ad hoc, P2P) security. He is author or coauthor of more than sixty national or international publications. He personally advised 15 PhD students (2 on-going) and was also thesis director for 14 additional students.


Ludovic Mé was leader of the Supélec SSIR research team from 1997 to 2011, and of the Inria/Supélec/CNRS/University of Rennes joint research team CIDRE  from 2011 to 2016. He was also from 2008 to 2015 in charge for Supélec of the last year major program (master level) dedicated to information systems security. From January 2015 to February 2019, he was head of science of the Rennes Bretagne Atlantique Inria research center. 


Ludovic Mé served many program committees of security conferences and was a member of the steering committees of RAID (2002-2017, program comity chair in 2001 and general chair in 2009). He serves the  steering comity of the French conference RESSI since 2015. He was a member (2004-2012) of the editorial board of the JCV "European Research Journal in Computer Virology" (Springer), and served a few advisory boards: the board for the security activities of the DGA (2006-2012), the board for the security activities at EDF (2010), and the French "High Council for Strategic Education and Research" scientific board (2011-2013).

Ludovic Mé is a Supélec alumnus (1987) and doctor of Rennes University (94). He spent in 2001 seven months as a visiting scientist in the "Security Lab" of the University of California at Davis.
