Informatics (Institute for Computing Systems Architecture)

The department's current research is focused on the areas of compilers and architectures, parallel computing, wireless networking and processor-automated synthesis by iterative analysis; our wireless communication group is particularly strong, and presently working on expanding wireless reach within Scotland; while the scope for research is wide, each area is underpinned by our fundamental aims: to extend understanding of existing systems; to improve current systems; and to develop new architecture and engineering methods.
