The Department of Computer and Information Science at Linköping University, Sweden. was founded in 1983, but its roots go back to the early seventies. It is one of the largest departments for computer and information science in northern Europe, with 195 employees of which 63 are faculty members (PhDs), including 23 full professors. Approximately 80 postgraduate students are enrolled in the department's PhD programmes, including 48 doctoral students holding salaried positions. The Artificial Intelligence and Integrated Computer Systems Division (AIICS) has circa 20 members and three research laboratories that include five (research) groups. The director of the division is Professor Patrick Doherty. The main focus of interest for the AIICS division is artificial intelligence and its application to intelligent artifacts. More specifically, the division has a successful track-record in both basic and applied research as it pertains to UAVs, automated planning and knowledge representation.
The group will lead WP6 and be participating primarily in three WPs: WP3, WP4 and WP6. Their main tasks are: in the development of delegation based frameworks for cooperation integrated with distributed planning systems. In the development of team collaboration algorithms: In the 3D mapping; in deployment mechanisms for small micro-uavs from larger uav systems.
