Research Groups

Following is the list of Research Groups of our department

Groups Detail

The design and analysis of algorithms and data structures forms one of the core areas within computer science. The Algorithmics Group performs fundamental research in this area, focusing on algorithmic problems for spatial data. Such problems arise in geographic information systems (GIS) and automated cartography, robotics, computer graphics, CAD/CAM, and many other application areas. The group also focuses on the theoretical foundations for new generation networks. That is, we strive to develop and analyze models, design and prove the correctness and optimality of algorithms.

Artificial Intelligence and High Performance Computing

The goal of the Artificial Intelligence Group is to persuade intelligence in all its components by promoting excellence in basic research. We aspire to attain outstanding performance byinvestigating the mechanisms underlying intelligent behavior and by creating intelligent artifacts. It is our firm belief that our goals can only be achieved by creating an open and free atmosphere that enables researchers to fully exploit their potential. In the field of intelligence this requires an interdisciplinary and international mixture of students/researchers/staff and globally networked cooperations with top research institutions. Moreover, we seek to motivate and teach students at all levels.

Data Mining and Business Intelligence

The focus of this research group is to use mining tools, such as data mining, text mining, and web mining, to search vast amounts of data for vital insight and knowledge. Mining tools are automated software tools used to achieve business intelligence by finding hidden relations, and predicting future events from vast amounts of data. This uncovered knowledge helps in gaining completive advantages, better customers’ relationships, and even fraud detection. Business intelligence and analytics transforms unstructured business intelligence research data into actionable information, enabling enhanced decision making by focusing data gathering, data management and data analysis activities against specific business initiatives. There are a number of MS and PhD students actively working in this area.

Graphical Imagery Therapy for Healing Brain Tumor in Childern

Three dimensional animated graphical representations is a tool which can be used to facilitate the guided imagery sessions in children with brain tumors. The guided imagery therapy has a cognitive – behavioral effect on patients, who are guided in imagining a scene to recover from physical/psychological illnesses and to improve the immune system. The image therapy has been successfully applied on variety of physical problems like in reduction of pain after surgery etc. The main objectives of this group are to conduct a longitudinal study to see the effects of this kind of imagery treatment and to apply the same basic idea of healing through animated imagery for other psychological and medical diseases by making changes in the same theme.

Human Computer Interaction (HCI)

The group is aimed to develop and enhance the understanding of one of the key domains of Computer Science i.e. Human Computer Interaction (HCI). The main purpose of HCI group is to explore the relationship between computer and its users. For this, the “interaction” plays an important role in defining the behavior of both computers and users. This interaction can be developed by considering the psychological and software aspects depending upon the nature of the tasks user wants to perform. Thus, this group explores different dimensions of HCI and performs research and development in related areas such as user interface design, tangible interaction, tactile/haptic interaction, and psychological aspects of HCI.

Information Security (ISec)

The Information Security Group is a world-leading interdisciplinary research group dedicated to research and education in the area of information (cyber) security. The group focuses on the issues associated with the design and development of early warning systems that are capable of detecting and responding to a variety of cyber based attacks, and on the issues associated with the field of computer forensics. The objective of this research group is to investigate the nature of threats posed to information systems by various agents, and to understand the potential impact of a successful attack, examine the issues surrounding the development and deployment of secure wireless mobile networked computer devices. The group carries out research into a number of information security, cryptography and digital topics in a range of computing environments.

Mobile Application Development Group

The limitations of mobile devices (small screen, small keyboard, limited memory, battery powered, unstable connections etc) as well as its advantages (always available, personal device, location-aware) has put new and different requirements on the development of mobile applications compared to desktop applications. We’re now seeing massive changes to application architecture as companies modernize the way they build applications. In this research track, we investigate research issues related to the new challenges imposed by mobile application development and mobile web development. The research will also be focused on the changes application developers need to understand if they want to build modern applications that deliver contextual customer experiences.
