Presentation University Institute for Computing Research

The Institute

The University Institute for Computing Research, founded by the University of Alicante on 26 July 2006 in a Decree of the Valencia Regional Government no. 107/2006, of 21 July, is staffed by an exceptional and dynamic team of over 105 researchers, all with an excellent research background in various IT related fields, such as computer architectures and technology, digital libraries, high performance computing and parallelism, cryptology and computational security, e-learning, industrial computing, Web engineering and datawarehouses, educational platforms, language processing and information systems, machine translation, virtual reality, computer networks, pattern recognition, robotics, telecommunications, artificial vision, etc.

Its main aim is to encourage basic and applied research in the field of computing and technological development, working closely with society and the business world and in particular with businesses in the IT sector.


The University Institute for Computing Research aims, in addition to providing IT support to small and medium enterprises and society in general, to provide a meeting point for top class researchers with interdisciplinary training, and a common language, in which the philosophy of innovation and quality plays a central role. With this in mind the institute has defined the following essential objectives:

  • Encourage and promote good research into computer science in terms of both basic scientific aspects and also applied science.
  • Establish high level training in the institute’s field of activity through postgraduate programmes and specialisation studies, focusing on interdisciplinary themes, in addition to training courses and ongoing studies.
  • Promoting links with other similar research bodies in Spain and world wide in order set up international research networks.
  • Provide scientific and technical advisory services to individual,  public and private business entities within the scope of the institute’s competence.
  • Promote cooperation with businesses within the scope of research and development.
  • Remote technological innovation, encouraging technological transfer to society and, in particular, the industrial sector.

Social impact

Until the creation of IUII, the Alicante region had no such organisation of this type. Its creation is part of an endeavour to modernise business technology and innovation, as well as society in the Alicante region, which it is hoped will have positive consequences for social welfare in general. These include:

  • Increased use of new technologies in all productive sectors of the area of influence.
  • Greater involvement of regional business in improving the accessibility of its products and services to the disabled.
  • Improved adaptation of products and services to the multicultural and multilingual situation our society is currently experiencing.
  • Foreseeable reduction in the price of new technology products and services.
  • Creation and development of new companies linked to computer technology.
  • Improved teaching within the scope of competence of the institute.
  • Greater professional opportunities for postgraduate students and researchers trained at the institute.
  • Increased productivity in research due to various collaborative relations, internal and external, continuously promoted by the institute.
