Organisation profile


At CIS we operate across the traditional discipline boundaries of Computer and Information Sciences, hosting world-class research in Artificial Intelligence, Software Engineering, Information Retrieval, Mobile and Ubiquitous Interaction, Functional Programming, Dataflow Systems, Database Indexing and Information Science. Our research is informed by real-world problems and is characterised by theoretical discovery underpinned by strong empirical science.

Our research is funded by a broad range of funding bodies including EPSRC, ESRC, AHRC, the European Union and industry. We collaborate with a range of external partners including the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, Metropolitan Police, NASA, European Space Agency, and NHS Scotland. 

As part of the Scottish Informatics and Computer Science Alliance (SICSA) we are engaged in collaborations with other Scottish centres of excellence in Computer Science research, especially in the areas of Multimodal interaction and Complex Systems Engineering.
