About the Informatics Institute
The mission of the Institute is to perform curiosity driven and use-inspired fundamental research in Computer Science. The research in the institute involves complex information systems at large, with a focus on Collaborative, Data Driven, Computational and Intelligent Systems, all with a strong interactive component.
We prefer to select specific topics and pursue them from methods in informatics and engineering, rather than to make a choice for fundamental versus engineering science. As part of the research mission, the Institute maintains strategic multi-disciplinary research links both inside and outside the University of Amsterdam.
The Informatics Institute is structured in 8 research sections plus a Lecturers group and a ICT Support group:
- AMLAB: Amsterdam Machine Learning Lab - Prof. M. (Max) Welling;
- ILPS: Information and Language Processing Systems - Prof. M. (Maarten) de Rijke);
- ISIS: Intelligent Sensory Information Systems - Prof. C.G.M. (Cees) Snoek);
- CV: Computer Vision - Prof. Th. (Theo) Gevers);
- CSL: Computational Science Lab - Prof. A.G. (Alfons) Hoekstra;
- TCS: Theory of Computer Science - Dr A. (Alban) Ponse).
- FCN: Federated Collaborative Networks - Prof. H. (Hamideh) Afsarmanesh);
- SNE Lab: System and Network Engineering Lab - Prof. C.T.A.M. (Cees) de Laat);
- LG: Lecturers group - H.L. (Hans) Dekkers MSc;
- ICT Support group - Dr R.G. (Rob) Belleman.
