CONET – Cooperating and communication Technologies

CONET – Cooperating and communication Technologies

Duration: 48 months (2008 - 2012)

Start: 1/06/2008

Principal Investigator: Γιώργος Σαμάρας

Main Funding Source: European Commission, FP7

Total Cost: 570,339

A number of different system concepts have gained a lot of relevance in the area of embedded systems over the past couple of years: Embedded systems, pervasive computing and wireless sensor networks. These three types of quite diverse systems share a lot of commonalities but also have some complementary aspects in common that make a combination into a coherent system vision promising.

The term "Cooperating Objects" was coined explicitly for the purpose of describing such systems by the Embedded WiSeNts Consortium, a Coordination Action funded by the EC in FP6. One of the main results was the publishing of the Embedded WiSeNts Research Roadmap that defines the concept of Cooperating Objects.

The vision of Cooperating Objects is, therefore, quite new and needs to be understood in more detail and probably extended with inputs from the relevant individual communities that compose it. This will enable us to better understand the impact on the research landscape and to steer the available resources in a meaningful way.

The main goal of CONET is to build a strong community in the area of Cooperating Objects capable of conducting the needed research to achieve, in the long run, the vision of Mark Weiser.

Therefore, the objectives of CONET are the following:

1. Create a visible and integrated community of researchers on the topics related to Cooperating Objects capable of driving the domain in the coming years.

2. Identify, arise awareness and steer academic research efforts towards industry-relevant issues without forgetting fundamental scientific issues; make the community more reactive to novel issues and approaches, and to coordinate its efforts; establish tight relationships with the European industry, leveraging interactions with leading US institutions in the field.

3. Stimulate cooperation between researchers from the three domains in order to achieve a lasting and sustainable architecture that is able to cope with the vision of Cooperating Objects.

Welcome

Welcome to the website of the Department of Computer Science at the University of Cyprus. The Department has experienced significant growth over the last few years with strong groups in artificial intelligence, computer architecture, computer networks, data management, graphics and virtual reality, internet computing, software engineering and theoretical computer science. The Department offers a Bachelor degree in Computer Science with 7 different specializations as well as a number of Master degrees and a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science.

The Department has a strong research infrastructure comprising high-performance clusters and storage area networks, cloud computing facilities, smart-phones and sensing devices and virtual reality equipment. Since 2005, our Department has been involved in more than 160 research projects funded from both the European Union and the Cyprus Research Promotion Foundation with total funding of over 21.5 million euros.
