Department of Telecommunications and information processing


Lifecycle:1 Jan 1993 →  Today
Organisation profile:The department consists of the following research groupsDatabase Document and Content Management: Digital information sources are growing tremendously. 'Big Data' sets which are too large or too complex cannot be efficiently handled by traditional information management systems. More and more organizations nowadays put large efforts in efficiently collecting, organizing and managing their data. DDCM research aims to support these efforts by investigating and developing new technologies for coping with the many challenges that stem from 'Big Data' and from the natural heterogeneous and imperfect/uncertain character of information. Digital Communications: The topics studied in the DIGCOM research group are: Modulation/Demodulation, Coding/Decoding, Carrier and Clock Synchronisation, and Equalization.Image Processing and Interpretation: Within the IPI research group the following topics are being studied: Watershed Based Segmentation, Content Based Image Retrieval, Edges and Line Detection, Model-Based Image Interpretation, Motion Estimation and Motion-Based Segmentation, Scale Space, Stereo Vision, Texture segmentation, Image processing techniques for the detection of buried landmines, Techniques for restoration and quantitative image analysis of medical ultrasound images, Compression of medical images and video.Stochastic Modeling and Analysis of Communication Systems:The main applications of the work done by this group are situated in the performance assessment of digital communication systems and networks. The research activities of the SMACS Research Group can be more or less divided in two parts. The major topic is the statistical analysis of buffers for the storage of digital information, by means of discrete-time queueing models. The second (minor) topic is the design, analysis and optimization of ARQ retransmission protocols.
