Research fields and projects

Institute of Computer Science is in accordance with its charter of basic research institutions, whose main objectives are to conduct research in computer science in line with current trends in theory and applications of informatics and these trends also help to create and transmit their knowledge to society, including the scientific community, students and application science and research. An integral part of the international research cooperation, organization of scientific and tourism in cooperation with universities, PhD students and their involvement in research.

Areas of research

The institute’s research objectives consist of two basic and two interdisciplinary research streams.

Basic research streams

Mathematical and Logical Foundations of Computer Science
Scientific computing and mathematical modeling

Interdisciplinary research streams

Neurocomputing and modeling of complex processes
Medical informatics


  • Theoretical activities concentrate in particular on basic research in computational mathematics, computational complexity theory, computational intelligence, computational statistics, computational learning theory, computational logic and cryptography.
  • Interdisciplinary and application oriented research aims at non-linear modeling and prediction, environmental informatics, medical informatics, neuroinformatics and bioinformatics.

Applications are sought primarily in the fields of environmental protection, meteorology, medicine and health care, biology, banking, cognitive sciences, earth sciences, economy, business, and web technologies. In all these fields the Institute strives to contribute to and to participate in the formation of the contemporary research trends.

Closely related activities transfer and disseminate the respective knowledge and experience to the society, in the widest sense of this word. These activities include:

  • Application of the research know-how for the benefits of the emerging Information and Knowledge Society, especially in selected interdisciplinary areas, such as health care and services, environmental protection, biomechanics, geomechanics, business, industry, etc.
  • Active and extensive participation in Ph.D. education in the above mentioned research fields.
  • Wide international cooperation, organization of scientific events and scientific mobility.
