The Scottish Informatics and Computer Science Alliance (SICSA) is a research pool supported by the Scottish Funding Council. It brings together researchers from Universities across Scotland to create one of the largest top-quality research clusters in ICS in the world.
SICSA has three principal objectives:
1. Improve the quality of Informatics and Computer Science research and education in Scotland
2. Contribute to economic development by working with industry to develop and exploit our work
3. Create a coherent, national community that represents all aspects of Scottish Informatics and Computer Science
Our research covers virtually all areas of computer science and informatics from low-level hardware design, through networking and middleware, to wetware, artificial intelligence, human computer interaction and social informatics. We are world leaders in both theoretical and practical aspects of the discipline and have a strong interdisciplinary tradition involving maths, engineering, psychology, the humanities and the social sciences.
