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. Welling);
- ILPS: Information and Language Processing Systems (Prof. M. de Rijke);
- ISIS: Intelligent Sensory Information Systems (Prof. A.W.M. Smeulders);
- CV: Computer Vision (Prof. Th. Gevers);
- CSL: Computational Science Lab (Dr A.G. Hoekstra);
- TCS: Theory of Computer Science (Dr A. Ponse).
- FCN: Federated Collaborative Networks (Prof. H. Afsarmanesh);
- SNE Lab: System and Network Engineering Lab (Prof. C.T.A.M. de Laat);
- LG: Lecturers group (H.L. Dekkers MSc)
- ICT Support group (Dr R.G. Belleman)
