Information Systems

The research in this area focuses on conceptual modeling, spatio-temporal databases, geographical information systems, data warehouses, and bio-informatics. The laboratory of Web & Information Technologies collaborates actively with the Database Laboratory of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) at Lausanne. As a result of this collaboration we have developed MADS, a spatio-temporal conceptual model that allows to capture the requirements of complex applications dealing with spatial and temporal information. The laboratory has also developed the MultiDimER model, a conceptual model targeted to data warehouses that can also include spatial and temporal features. Finally, in the area of bio-informatics, the laboratory has developed intelligent visualization techniques allowing to exploit the huge amount of information that is usually contained in biological applications.
