Research area Communicative Systems

Striving for secure information transmission

We study information transmission over complex channels and networks, and the related security, reliability, and privacy issues in communicating systems

About

The Communicative Systems Research Area embraces the end-to-end arguments in system design by focusing on integrated research in the areas of information transfer and communicating systems.
Studies related to information transmission over potentially complex channels and networks are combined with investigations of multiple distributed entities employing communication networks to collaboratively achieve a common goal through the following topics:

  • Applications of Graph Transformation Techniques
  • Coding Theory
  • Computer Networks
  • Document Engineering
  • Image and Signal Processing
  • Information Theory
  • Interactive Distributed Systems
  • Mobile and Ubiquitous Computing
  • Network Forensics
  • Network and System Security
  • Platforms for Big Data Analysis and Machine Learning
  • Security, Reliability, and Privacy in Distributed Environments
  • Transmission over Time Variant Channels
  • Wireless Communications.

The communicative systems research area is managed by the Communicative Systems Laboratory (ComSys).
