Institute for Information Sciences (I2S)

The mission of the Institute for Information Sciences (I2S) is to sustain and grow national leadership in the creation, dissemination, and commercialization of new technologies in computer systems, communication systems, and radar systems. I2S performs basic and applied research to create and disseminate fundamental knowledge and new technologies; educate and train students for technology leadership; and provide state, national, and international leadership for next generation information infrastructure. I2S is currently composed of five standing research centers: 1) Radar Systems & Remote Sensing; 2) High Assurance & Secure Systems; 3) Communications, Materials, and Photonics; 4) Mathematical Methods & Interdisciplinary Computing; and the Center for Cyber-Social Dynamics. I2S also includes a contract center, the Science of Security Lablet. I2S facilities include: the Kansas Applied Research Laboratory, RF Measurement Laboratory, Optical and Photonics Systems Laboratories, a High-Performance Computing Cluster & File Storage, the Cyber-physical Laboratory, Cybersecurity Laboratory and the Blockchain Laboratory.

Science of Security Lablet at The University of Kansas

EECS is leading a multidisciplinary effort at KU that will tackle the fundamental science underpinning the security of the Internet of Things (IoT), through a prestigious designation from the National Security Agency. The KU Science of Security Lablet is contributing broadly to the development of security science while leveraging expertise in resiliency, which in this context means a system’s demonstrable ability to maintain security properties even during ongoing cyber attacks.

Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS)

Center for Remote Sensing of Ice Sheets (CReSIS) is a Science and Technology Center established by the National Science Foundation (NSF) in 2005, with the mission of developing new technologies and computer models to measure and predict the response sea level change to the mass balance of ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica
