University of Cyprus
The University of Cyprus was established in 1989 and admitted its first students in 1992. Postgraduate studies started in 1995. The main objectives of the University are twofold: the promotion of scholarship and education through teaching and research, and the enhancement of the cultural, social and economic development of Cyprus. The University is a public corporate body, governed by the Council and the Senate. The Faculties and Departments are administered by Boards; each Faculty is headed by a Dean and each Department is headed by a chairperson.
The Department of Computer Science is a research-oriented department active in several areas of Information Society Technologies. The research interests of the Department vary from purely theoretical and foundational topics to applied development where, to the extent possible, this applied research is aimed to be directly useful to the local community of Cyprus. Over the last years, the Department has been continuing and strengthening its many collaborations with other universities and research institutions all over the world, expanding its research into new areas. The general research areas of the Department include: eGovernment, Medical Informatics and Telemedicine, eHealth, Parallel and Distributed Systems and Computation, High-Speed Communication Networks, Internet Technologies, Concurrent Systems, Mobile Computing, Computer Architecture, Intelligent Systems, eLearning, Multimedia Systems, Formal Methods for Specification, Artificial and Computational Intelligence and Software Engineering. Furthermore, the Computer Science Department of the University of Cyprus is in very close collaboration with the Cyprus Department of Information Technology and the Ministry of Health for the definition of related IST strategies and their implementation.
