Center for Innovative Applications of Computer Science

The Center for Innovative Applications of Computer Science (ZIAI) promotes interdisciplinary research in the field of applied computer science and its transfer in cooperation with subjects from the university's research focus areas. It is particularly concerned with the research, development and testing of innovative information technologies for the humanities, cultural studies, social sciences and human sciences.

Technology development is supported by researchers in applied computer science, while the variety of application perspectives is represented by computer science-related research members from other subjects. The founding members come from all four faculties of the university.

The center promotes cooperation with institutions and companies in applied computer science as well as with national and international research in this field. It provides advice on methods of applied computer science that is aimed at all members of the university.

The ZIAI was established with the regulations of July 30, 2015 and has been part of the University of Bamberg since then.
