Computer Science and Informatics
The Computer Science and Informatics Unit at Nottingham Trent University is part of the Physical Science, Engineering and Computing Research Centre, which is one of three Research Centres within the School of Science and Technology.
The following Impact Case Studies are linked to this UoA:
- Wireless and Mobile Computing for Sustainable Urban Mobility and Social Inclusion
- Using Interaction Techniques to Help People Tackle the Effects of Stroke and Other Impairments
UoA Coordinator: Professor David Brown
The Unit provides researchers with an exciting environment for doing high-quality, interdisciplinary work. It also provides expertise in advanced computer science topics to partners from both academia and industry.
Research focuses on three research themes, Interactive Systems, Intelligent Simulation and Networks, and Computational Intelligence and Applications.
- Interactive Systems:The Interactive Systems Research Group (ISRG)uses computer games in therapy and education. Other examples of the areas of interest of the group are accessibility and location based services for social inclusion.
- Intelligent Simulation, Modelling and Networking:The Intelligent Simulation, Modelling and Networking Research Group (ISMN) works on a variety of computer network related topics, for example: wireless and mobile computing, mathematical modelling and simulation, web services and network security.
- Computational Intelligence and Applications:The Computational Intelligence and Applications Research Group (CIA) uses methods from the field of computational intelligence, such as artificial neural networks, evolutionary algorithms and swarm intelligence to solve real-world problems from science and engineering.
