Information Systems Engineering Lab

In computer science, it is common practice to distinguish raw data from information. Data is merely an unstructured collection of facts, which can hardly be used in a meaningful way. Information, on the other hand, can be readily utilized as knowledge during the decision making process. Information systems are the medium that gives structure to data, transforming it into information. Since the volume of existing data is constantly increasing, data processing speed is considered a key feature in modern information systems. The recent explosion of big data has only intensified the need for efficiency, making the development of such systems a relevant and prioritized problem.

About laboratory

Our laboratory is primarily interested in information systems design, with a special focus on databases. The main projects concern DBMS architecture, query processing and optimization, database adaptivity, and physical database design.

Projects

Besides carrying out research projects, we also deliver university courses:

  • Database Design, HSE
  • Computer Programming, SPbU
  • Computer Data Processing Algorithms, SPbU
  • Kotlin (extracurricular course), SPbU
  • Mathematical Logic, SPbU
