Anatole Lécuyer is Senior Researcher and head of Hybrid research team, at Inria, the French National Institute for Research in Computer Science and Control, in Rennes, France. His research interests include virtual reality, 3D interaction, haptic interfaces, and brain-computer interfaces. He has been involved in numerous National or International collaborative research projects such as French ANR projects “OpenViBE” (05-09) and “OpenViBE2” (09-12) on Brain-Computer Interfaces and virtual reality, European Network of Excellence “INTUITION” (05-08) on Virtual Reality, European Strep project “NIW” (08-11) on Augmented Walking, or European h2020 project “HAPPINESS” (14-17) on Haptic interaction for tactile surfaces. He regularly serves as expert in Virtual Reality and BCI for public bodies such as European Commission (EC), European Research Council (ERC), or French National Research Agency (ANR). He is currently Associate Editor of "IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics", “Frontiers in Virtual Environments” and “Presence” journals, and formerly of “ACM Transactions on Applied Perception” and “IJHCS”.
