Utrecht research Institute for Information and Computing Sciences is the research institute of the Department of Information and Computing Sciences. The goal of our research is to push the frontiers of knowledge and capabilities in science and application areas by developing concepts, theories, algorithms and software methods that will lead or contribute to innovative and feasible information technologies.
We aim at high-quality foundational research with a keen eye for application. The interaction between foundational research and applications fosters highly scientifically and societal relevant results. On the one hand, applications are based on solid foundations, on the other hand, judiciously chosen applications inspire deep foundational problems.
