Centre for Systems and Information Technologies

About the centre

The Centre was established in March 2007 with the aim of integrating researchers in the fields of systems and information technologies. Activities concentrate mainly on:

  • information technologies for support of activities in medicine, public health system and environmental sciences,
  • theory of systems and control,
  • design and optimisation of systems and operations.

Most of the staff take part or closely cooperate in R&D; projects at other institutions (Jozef Stefan Institute, Iskra Impuls d.o.o.). Some of them have obtained substantial working experience from working at international research institutions, such as: the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia, the Technical University in Prague, Czech Republic, the University of Glasgow, Great Britain, the Hamilton Institute at the National University of Ireland, etc.

Currently, the Centre’s work is concentrated on analysing large textual databases to generate new hypotheses for explaining complex, not yet sufficiently understood phenomena in the field of biomedicine. The RaJoLink method, developed in the Centre, uses an innovative approach based on rare terms, to analyse large textual databases and search for new connections.

Other research areas include:

  • integration of computer applications and methods to support decision-making and data mining processes,
  • applications of knowledge technologies in medicine and health care,
  • data processing methodologies and tools for education and research in information society,
  • mathematical modelling and use of automatic control of dynamic systems,
  • optimisation of production procedures and processes.
