Research

We are involved in a broad range of research areas, ranging across the Department's four research groups of Digital Ecosystems (DE), Formal Methods and Security (FMS), Multimedia, Security & Forensics (MSF), and Nature Inspired Computing and Engineering (NICE), and with links to the Digital World Research Centre (DWRC). The Department has a strong research culture and a growing research profile, and we have won several prizes, including the University Voting Systems Competition System Design award in 2007, and the prestigious Institution of Engineering and Technology Innovation in Engineering Security award in 2006.

We have a tradition of exploitation and practical application, and we enjoy strong research links with industry. We have a vibrant and active PhD community, and regularly host research visitors and speakers. The Department runs an annual PhD conference series. Below are some pictures of two past editions of the event in 2012 and 2013. A poster of the 2013 PhD conference can be downloaded from here.

Digital Ecosystems

Theories and techniques for high quality complex reactive systems and new generations of pervasive computer systems.

Formal Methods and Security

New technologies for security- and safety-critical domains, ranging from trustworthy voting systems, to formal methods integration for software systems development, and formal models for UML.

Multimedia, Security and Forensics

Interplay among three areas: multimedia computing, cyber security and digital forensics.

Nature Inspired Computing and Engineering

Developing computational models and algorithms inspired from natural intelligence found in physical, chemical, social and biological systems.

Digital World Research Centre (DWRC)

A multi-disciplinary research centre within the School of Arts. Aims to understand and transform communication through digital media. Has links with the Department of Computing in research areas like human-computer interface, multimedia computing and information visualisation.
