Abstract

On the occasion of the celebration in 2019 of the 100th anniversary of official French–Polish Scientific Collaboration, this paper explores the origins and outcomes of a scientific collaboration that we launched in the 1980s together with the late Professor Stefan Wȩgrzyn of the Polytechnic University of Silesia in Gliwice, Poland, Founding Director of the Institute of Theoretical and Applied Informatics of the Polish Academy of Sciences, and Fellow of the Polish Academy of Sciences. We survey the themes of this long-standing collaboration, outline the work that was accomplished, and the reasons that resulted in these themes being at its core. We outline the main scientific outcomes, and discuss the current work and projects that relate to this exemplary Franco-Polish collaboration. Finally, we introduce the papers of this Special Issue in the light of these ongoing themes.
