7. Applied Computer Science Laboratory

The scientific activity of the laboratory

Currently, it is difficult to imagine conducting research in any area of science and practice without the participation of computer science. One of the current directions of development of applied computer science is the use of technologies offered by modern artificial intelligence and flexible parallel or distributed computing.

The employees of the Applied Computer Science Laboratory have extensive knowledge and many years of experience in conducting team research in the field of computer science and its applications.

The scientific and research tasks of the laboratory cover a wide area of computer science and related disciplines, and are of great scientific, practical and innovative value. As part of the research work, the laboratory employees intend to develop new models, methods, algorithms and applications related to various IT applications. In particular, the planned research works concern such areas of IT as:

  • concurrency (modeling and analysis of concurrent systems),
  • modern artificial intelligence (natural language processing, analysis, processing and recognition of images and signals, expert systems)
  • data mining (grouping, intelligent decision support),
  • optimization of digital systems,
  • system diagnostics,
  • Computer Graphics,
  • telemedicine systems.


As part of these works, modern methodologies and technologies will be used and developed, including those based on knowledge and parallel and distributed computing.

The scientific and research staff of individual laboratories consists of employees from:

  • Interdisciplinary Center for Computational Modelling
  • Department of Approximate Methods

All laboratories of the Laboratory of Applied Informatics have their own server system as well as supporting devices (UPS, air conditioning of the server room) supporting the computers located in these laboratories.


The Laboratory includes the following laboratories:

7.1. Laboratory of Computational Methods and Simulation

7.2. Artificial Intelligence Laboratory

7.3. Laboratory of Optical Methods of Information Processing

7.4. Laboratory of digital systems

7.5. Laboratory of Modeling and Exploration of Data Processes

7.6. Laboratory of Intelligent Decision Support Systems

7.7. Computer Graphics and Image Processing Laboratory

7.8. Laboratory of Information Technology in Electrical Engineering
