The Software Engineering and Internet Technologies Laboratory (SEIT) lab is part of the Computer Science Department of the University of Cyprus. The lab focuses its research activities on two important areas of Information Technology, namely Software Engineering and Internet Technologies. In the first area, SEIT focuses on Cloud Computing, Service Oriented Architectures, Context-Aware Middleware Platforms and Smart and Mobile Computing for the development of pervasive, self-adaptive applications and Smart IoT services. In the second area, the Laboratory concentrates on the development of ICT-enabled Environments, platforms and tools for implementing Health monitoring and support services, Smart and Personalised services for Elders, Assistive Technologies for people with disabilities and Creativity services. The lab also pursues activities related to Technology Enhanced Learning, E-Business, E-Government and developing environments for elders’ social inclusion, active ageing and independent living. Finally, the lab’s research is also related to Creativity, Recommender Systems and Crowd Sourcing.


In the area of Software Engineering, SEIT focuses on:

Cloud Computing Service Oriented Architectures Context-Aware Middleware Platforms Smart and Mobile Computing for the development of pervasive and self-adaptive applications Smart IoT Services Interoperability, heterogeneity and scalability in Cloud-Based, Service-Oriented Middleware Platforms for IoT Service-Oriented Crowd-Sourcing and Big Data platforms for data collection, aggregation, analysis, visualizations and predictive modeling.

In the area of Internet Technologies, the Laboratory concentrates on the development of ICT-enabled Environments, platforms and tools for implementing:

Health monitoring and support services Smart and Personalised services for Elders Assistive Technologies for people with disabilities Creativity services .


The lab also pursues activities related to Technology Enhanced Learning, E-Business, E-Government and developing environments for elders’ social inclusion, active ageing and independent living.
