Research

The projects and and scientific research that are carried out at the Faculty of Informatics are devoted to the possibilities of applying information systems in various activities and sectors. The Faculty is the only in Lithuania belonging to the Informatics Europe association, which unites the strongest informatics scientists, researchers and academic staff. The Association now has 115 members from all over Europe.

 

Research areas

Internet of Things and services is a global infrastructure of the information society that combines physical and virtual things using currently existing and being developed information and telecommunication technologies and provides advanced services. The application of Internet of Things includes environmental protection, transport, logistics, farming, trade, health protection, public safety, smart and digital cities, smart houses.

Human-computer interface is a science about the relationship between two complicated systems – computer system and its user. As computer systems become more and more advanced, new types of interface (neural, brain, sight, gestures, etc.) emerge, that can be combined when trying to simplify the usage of digital systems and the information transfer.

Semantic web sees the future Internet network as a global database. Semantic network infrastructure would allow for people and machines to make decisions as to how the information should be categorised and used.

Program system development analyses the questions of solving real-world problems. System testing is relevant when creating sustainable programs that would work properly, for a long time and without major problems.

The creation and analysis of multidisciplinary models examines the aspects of how objects and processes that exist in real world are modelled and simulated in computer systems.

Scientific achievements and impact

Impact of scientific research

Scientific research and projects that are carried out by the Faculty correspond to the strategic priorities of the University, the priority fields of research development of the Faculty and priorities of smart specialisation in Lithuania: smart environments, information technologies, semantic technologies, cybersecurity, ICT infrastructure.

Defended dissertations

Dissertations defended at the Faculty solve the problems of technology creation and application, and analyse the recommendations for their installation in the areas of cutting-edge information science, such as: business information systems (A. Šukys, 2017; A. Kriščiūnas, 2017), e-health systems (R. Girčys), advanced human-computer interface (I. Martišius, 2016) and Internet of things (N. Jusas, 2017). These areas are crucial for development of contemporary society, and smart environments that make people’s lives more comfortable and easier.

Impact of technological solutions

As it is important that the activity of the Faculty’s scientists and researchers would be more visible and appreciated by society and would make science and technologies more popular, the research-based technological solutions and inventions are presented at national (TECHNORAMA) and international science exhibitions. Startups created on the basis of the Faculty alumni inventions are among the most ambitious and successful in Lithuania.

Publications and their impact

The researchers and scientists of the Faculty publish research results in the top-ranking international journals with impact factor including Nature Scientific Reports (IF=4.259), Biophysical Journal (IF=3.668); Composite Structures (IF=3.858), Information Sciences (IF=3.893), Technological and Economic Development of Economy (IF=3,224), Computers & Operations Research (IF=2.600), Computers & Industrial Engineering (IF=2.623), Journal of Systems and Software (IF=2.444), Sensors (2.677), Expert Systems with Applications (IF=2.981), BioMed Research International (IF=2.134), PeerJ (2.177) and others. The outcomes scientific research conducted at KTU are being presented at the best international scientific conferences of the field.

Scientific events and their impact

The annual International Conference on Information and Software Technologies (ICIST), previously known as Information Technologies, has long been the largest and most important international science conference in the field of information technology in Lithuania. It was organised for the first time in 1995, and since 2008 the conference became international. The program committee is mainly composed of scientists and researchers from the institutions abroad. Since 2008, conference publications are published on Thomson Reuters WoS Proceedings database. The event is important for science and studies in Lithuania in several aspects as it encompasses the wide range of topics in the fields of informatics engineering and informatics, focusing especially on system simulation and software development. Scientists from Lithuania and other countries annually submit more than 120 articles to the International Program Committee of the conference. Since 2012, the main conference proceeding is published in the Springer‐Verlag CCIS series (publications belonging to this series are referred to in Thomson Reuters Web of Science and Scopus databases).

International conference ALTA: Intelligent Learning Technology involves scientists, study experts, representatives of State and educational institutions who introduce new methodological and technological solutions for the education system. The purpose of the conference is to promote international co-operation, the development of science in Lithuania and scientific relations
