Information & Communication Systems Security Laboratory

The Laboratory of Information and Communications Systems Security (Info-Sec-Lab) was established in 1999. Currently, it includes 6 academic staff mem­bers (Prof. S. Gri­tza­lis, Prof. L. Mitrou, Assoc. Prof. G. Kambourakis, Assoc. Prof. S. Kokolakis, Asst. Prof. M. Karyda, and Asst. Prof. E. Konstantinou) and more than 36 research scientists and engineers. Our security team is the largest in Greece and one of the largest in Europe.

The members of the Info-Sec-Lab have been involved in several R&D projects on Se­cu­ri­ty and Privacy, security investigations, au­dits, security conference committees, and security reviews. Most of the R&D projects have been funded by either European Com­mis­­sion Pro­gram­mes or European Standardization Committee (CEN) (e.g. FP7, FP6, FP5, IST, STREP, MED, eTEN, Telematics for Admini­stra­tions, ESPRIT, European Trusted Services ETS I & II, ISIS, INFOSEC, Healthcare Telematics, RACE, ACTS, AIM, VALUE, STAR, ORA, Socrates/Erasmus etc.) or the Greek Government (e.g. the Greek General Secretariat for Research and Technology, Ministries of Defense, Health, Education, Development, Wel­fare, Finance, Foreign Affairs, Culture, Justice, Interior, Data Protection Commission, etc.). Many other projects have been funded by private organizations (e.g. the Hellenic PTT (OTE SA), Athens Chamber of Com­merce and Industry, Hellenic Petroleum (EKO SA), the Athens Underground, Athens Tram, etc.).

Indicatively, during 2009 to 2018, Info-Sec-Lab researchers have been involved in more than 25 international and 58 national research projects with a total budget of approximately 5 MEUR. Moreover, several members of the lab have been participated in numerous committees for the evaluation of major projects of the Hellenic public sector.

From 1999 up to now, Info-Sec-Lab members have developed a close collaboration with numerous international educational institutions, organizations, and companies: University of Murcia (Spain), University of Malaga (Spain), University Centre of Defence at the Spanish Air Force Academy (Spain), Universidad Politecnica de Valencia (Spain), University of Milan (Italy), University of Padua (Italy), Polytechnic University of Bari (Italy), University of Regensburg (Germany), University of Duisburg-Essen (Germany), University of Vienna (Austria), Katholieke University of Leuven (Belgium), University of Tilburg (The Netherlands), University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UK), University of East London (UK), University of Plymouth (UK), University of Bristol, Cryptography Group (UK), University of Bristol, Systems Center (UK), Bournemouth University (UK), University College Dublin (Ireland), Aalborg University (Denmark), Technical University of Denmark (Denmark), Technical University of Cyprus (Cyprus), Georgia Institute of Technology (USA), Carnegie Mellon University (USA), Columbia University (USA), Stevens Institute of Technology (USA), George Mason University (USA), National  Institute  of  Standards  and  Technology (NIST) (USA), Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (Israel), National University of Singapore, Singapore, University of Technology and Design (Singapore), Seoul National University of Technology (Republic of Korea), Korea Institute of Science and Technology Information (Republic of Korea), University of Melbourne (Australia), Victoria University, (Australia), Auckland University of Technology (New Zealand), University of Otago (New Zealand), Izmir University (Turkey), Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R) (Singapore), Outpost24 A.B. (Sweden), Workable, European Commission, Republic of Cyprus, European Commission Joint Research Centre.

Members of the Info-Sec-Lab have participated as authors of books or book chapters, book editors or editors of conference proceedings, authors of invited journal papers, and authors of scientific journal or international conference articles, in more than 600 publications on Information and Communication Systems Security and Privacy protection.

Furthermore, members of the Info-Sec-Lab have served more than 800 times as Conference General Chairs, Program Chairs, Program Committee Members, Members of Organizing Committees, referees in scientific journals and international conferences, in the area of Information and Communication Systems Security and Privacy Protection.

According to Google Scholar the number of citations to the scientific work of the Info-Sec-Lab members exceeds 8,000.

Artificial Intelligence Laboratory

In our Knowledge Society, the vast amount of information that drives organizations' and communities' activities imposes drastic changes on markets. The restructure of businesses towards capturing, exploiting and disseminating information coming from different sources, being in different grain size and in different modalities, in ways that are seamless to the performance of everyday activities in complex, unpredictable and dynamic settings, is emerging.

In this setting, the objectives of the AI-Lab include:

  • Empowering humans to perform collaborative activities in complex and dynamic settings
     

  • Exploiting and integrating information coming from different (and possibly heterogeneous) information sources
     

  • Capturing and Mining Capturing and Mining knowledge from data
     

  • Designing and implementing distributed cognitive systems for information exploitation and collaboration.

Geometry, Dynamical Systems & Cosmology Laboratory

GeoDySyC, the Laboratory of Geometry, Dynamical Systems and Cosmology, is one of the oldest research labs-research groups of the University of the Aegean. It was officially formed in 1998 and is responsible for the teaching and research related to various directions in applied mathematics anf theoretical physics, with particular research emphasis on cosmological problems. GeoDySyC operates in the Department of Inf. & Comm. Syst. Eng. of the University of the Aegean on Samos. Members of the group have been responsible for creating conditions conducive for research in the areas of gravitation, relativity and cosmology, dynamical systems and differential geometry, on Samos over more than two decades and they have been in close and fruitful collaboration with various institutions and centers around the world including, Yale University, University of Cambridge, IHES Paris, and CERN.


GeoDySyC offers a number of undergraduates and various doctorate-level courses in the Dept of Information and Communication Systems Engineering and also for the School of Sciences on Samos. The undergraduate courses are: Calculus, Linear Algebra, Applied Mathematics, Differential Equations, Physics I, Physics II, Mathematical Modelling, Dynamical Systems, while the doctorate-level, postgraduate courses that have been given by members of GeoDySyC over the years include astronomy and cosmology, mathematical methods of general relativity, dynamical systems, differential geometry, and theoretical mechanics. GeoDySyC is also responsible for the creation and operation of the Theoretical Cosmology Doctoral Program run in the department over a period of 5 years. Faculty members of GeoDySyC have also recruited two postdoctoral fellows and a number of PhD students.


Members of the laboratory have published many hundreds of publications in journals and conference proceedings and have been responsible for the organization of 15 international conferences and summer schools on Samos in the past two decades. They have also invited a number of distinguished scientists on to visit the department with extended stays ranging from a few weeks to several months. These visitors include Professors John Barrow, Dieter Brill, Yvonne Choquet-Bruhat, Steven Hawking, Demetrios Christodoulou, Vincent Moncrief, Vitaly Melnikov, Peter Leach and Ignatios Antoniadis.
