The Software Engineering and Internet Technologies (SEIT) Laboratory focuses its research activities on two import- ant areas of Information Technology, namely Software Engineering and Internet Technologies.
In the first area, SEIT focuses on Cloud Computing, Service Oriented Architectures, Context-Aware Middleware Platforms and Smart and Mobile Computing for the development of pervasive, self-adaptive applications and Smart IoT services.
In the second area, the Laboratory concentrates on the development of ICT-enabled Environments, platforms and tools for implementing Health monitoring and support services, Smart and Personalised services for Elders, Assistive Technologies for people with dis- abilities and Creativity services.
The lab also pursues activities related to Technology Enhanced Learning, E-Business, E-Government and developing environments for elders’ social inclusion, active ageing and independent living. Finally, the lab’s research is also related to Creativity, Recommender Systems and Crowd Sourcing.
SEIT has extensive experience in the area of applying ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) to e-Learning, m-Learning and Open and Distance Learning in general as well as Life Long Learning in particular. This expertise is both at technical level and at developing policies and qualification frameworks for such activities.
