The Research Committee of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki
The Research Committee of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH) is exclusively responsible for the contractual research within Aristotle University. Over the last three years, the RC has collaborated with 1,700 partners (Universities, Research Centers and Companies) for the implementation of 3,500 RTD Projects. The overall budget of these projects reached €150 million. The annual turnover of the Research Committee of AUTH is around €50 Million. The work of this project will be carried out by the Information Processing Lab (IPL) of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. With involvement in more than 20 other projects related to research on intelligence systems, autonomous software agents, databases and knowledge discovery, software engineering and consumption control, environmental impacts from power generation and applications of Information Technologies, IPL is an active research group in the intelligence systems field, with interests covering a wide range of artificial intelligence technologies.
With its expertise in system design and end-customer interfaces, AUTH will serve the project as software developer and will lead all software design and development WPs (4 and 5). AUTH will be heavily involved in software integration processes, algorithm development and data management.
