Institute of Communication and Computer Systems
ATHENS – GREECE
Brief Biography of Partner
The Institute of Communication and Computer Systems (ICCS) is a non-profit academic research body established in 1989 to carry applied research and development activity in the areas of telecommunications, computer systems and their application in a variety of research themes. ICCS is linked to the National Technical University of Athens and in particular with the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. ICCS consists of more than 50 labs, research groups and teams, dealing with all aspects of electrical and computer engineering and employ approximately 800 researchers and scientists. In the ONCOSCREEN project, ICCS is represented by one of its research groups – I-SENSE. I-SENSE consists of more than 100 researchers and is very active in a number of scientific and research areas, with main application areas being the Intelligent Transportation Systems, the Virtual Environments, the Assistive Technologies and the Smart Integrated Systems & Communication. I-SENSE has coordinated and participated in more than 150 research projects at the European and national levels. Over 20 years, it has worked with industry and research leaders, serving as the project coordinator of the following projects: NIGHTINGALE, EVENTS, PODIUM, HYPERION, 5G-IANA, eCharge4Drivers, CitySCAPE, and DIONE.
In addition to I-SENSE, CN-Lab, a research group at ICCS, is involved in the project. CN Lab team has an extensive expertise in various scientific fields, including such areas as medical informatics, energy management, system integration, machine learning, communications, context awareness, and pervasive computing. CN-Lab has participated in a numerous of EU and national-funded projects and is currently coordinating the following projects: ALAMEDA, INLIFE, MAGNETO, SOCIALTRUTH, and PREVISION.
Partner’s Role in ONCOSCREEN
ICCS is strongly involved in the project. Being the technical coordinator, it overviews all technical tasks and contributes to project’s quality and risk management, shaping the data management plan and procedures. ICCS leads the activities related to the technical requirements of the ONCOSCREEN systems and the shape of the ONCOSCREEN architecture. In addition, ICCS is responsible for the development of the AI-modules for volatile organic compounds (VOC) biomarkers pattern recognition software and for uninterrupted communication between ONCOSCREEN solutions: ONCO-VOC and the ONCO-CAWA. Furthermore, ICCS will be responsible for developing models and procedures that will address potential biases in the data and will ensure trustworthiness of the AI models. Finally, ICCS actively contributes to dissemination, communication, and impact creation activities.
