Research units in Centre for Complex Cooperative Systems

The Centre for Complex Cooperative Systems is divided in to the following organisational units.

Large-scale Data Management Unit

Making data, information and knowledge readily available, active and meaningful to distributed groups of users in the 21st century. The group sees itself as a valuable research resource that can be called upon to assist many other researchers in collaborative projects.

Software Engineering Research Group

The mission of the Software Engineering Research Group is to bridge the gap between research and development in the field of software engineering and its application to other disciplines.

Cyber Security Research Unit (CSRU)

The Cyber Security Research Unit conducts research into cyber-security and digital forensics, with particular focus on complex systems of systems, applying AI (Human Immune Systems and Machine Learning) into cyber security domain, app security, context-aware systems and security, small devices, including but not limited Industrial Control Systems and IoT applications as well as smart devices and sensor networks.

IT for Smart Cities Unit

ICT enabled information intelligence for urban governance offers significant new potential to simultaneously achieve more effective management of the complexity of the city and the engagement of citizens in defining their urban futures. The main thematic areas covered under this unit will be urban governance including spatial analysis, public participation, smart mobility, public security and energy efficiency.

Semantic and Description-Driven Systems Unit

This unit concentrates on spinning out the unique software engineering approach of Description-Driven Systems and applying it to other domains. The unit is based at CERN, and participates in EC projects and collaborations with the private software sector.

The Parallel Computing Unit

This unit's research spans a range of parallel computing topics, including parallel and concurrent languages, algorithms, data visualization, rendering, mathematical logic, program construction, large-scale data analysis, and hardware design.
