The research groups of the Department of Computer Science and Technology cover three broad areas: theoretical computer science, software systems and computer technology.

Area: Theoretical Computer Science
Algorithms, Cryptography and Computational Logic Group

The algorithms, cryptography and computational logic group investigates the notion of computation with the aim of developing efficient methods for fundamental problems arising in computer applications but also with aim of seeking limits to their tractability. The solutions pursued are general and are based on mathematical foundations. The teaching and research activities of the group are supported by the laboratory of algorithms, cryptography, and computational logic.

The members of the group are interested in a large number of theoretical computer science subjects, such as computability theory, computational complexity, computational logic, algorithms, data structures, information theory, coding theory, cryptography, cryptanalysis and computational geometry. These subjects are closely interrelated and combine the great scientific interest with the importance of their applications.

Members: C. Coutras, T. Malamatos, and N. Kolokotronis

Computational Science and Technology Group

The computational science and technology group focuses on subjects, such as computational mathematics (numerical methods for solving differential equations), mathematical modeling (geometric integration methods, multi-factor process simulation, system optimization etc.) and applications in computational chemistry.

The teaching and research activities of the group are supported by (a) the computational science lab and (b) the applied mathematics, scientific computation and modeling lab, which provide the suitable education environment for the undergraduate students to use the appropriate mathematical software for solving relevant problems.

Members: T. Simos, D. Vlachos and D. Sakas

Area: Software Systems
Software and Database Systems Group

The software and database systems group develops research activities in state-of-the-art areas related to software systems and databases, including P2P systems, distributed systems, information representation and management, databases with special features (such as object-oriented, spatial, temporal, XML etc), data streams, as well as related applications (service-oriented computing, e-government, complex data management and so forth).

The teaching and research activities of the group are supported by the software and database system lab, which provides the necessary infrastructure in terms of hardware and software as well as a workplace for PhD candidates, postgraduate students and affiliated researchers that specialize on areas relevant to the laboratory’s interests.

Members: C. Vassilakis, G. Lepouras, S. Skiadopoulos, S. Kotsiantis and P. Raftopoulou


Human-Computer Interaction and Virtual Reality Group

The human-computer interaction and virtual reality group aims to support the research and teaching requirements of the department in issues related to the analysis, design, development and evaluation of HCI and VR systems and applications.

The teaching and research activities of the group are supported by (a) the human-computer interaction and virtual reality lab and (b) the computer graphics lab.

Members: G. Lepouras, C. Vassilakis, S. Skiadopoulos, N. Platis and A. Antoniou


Area: Computer Technology
Computer Systems Group

The computer systems group conducts high-quality research in subjects, such as hardware compilation methods and system-level design, efficient implementation of multimedia applications and networks as well as the design of reusable hardware cores. The teaching and research activities of the group are supported by the computer system lab.

The scientific area of computer systems implementation is a constantly evolving sector that is the driving force behind the rapid growth in informatics and telecommunications. The main aim of the group is the expansion into frontier areas, such as multiprocessor compilers, parallel architectures and multithreaded processors, real-time embedded systems software, etc.

Members: K. Masselos K., M. Wallace, P. Kitsos and K. Pramataris
