'World-leading research in Wales'

Please note that research within the areas of Computing, Creative Industries, Media, Performance and Humanities is now organised through the Glyndwr University Centre for Creative and Applied Research for the Digital Society (CARDS). These CAIR pages will no longer be updated; the CARDS website will host the most up-to-date research material from now.

Welcome to the Centre for Applied Internet Research (CAIR) pages at Glyndwr University in Wrexham, North Wales.  CAIR is one of eight fully-accredited and recognised research centres within Glyndwr. In the recent Research Assessment Exercise (RAE 2008), 90% of CAIR's research was judged to be 'internationally significant', 40% 'internationally excellent' and some even 'world-leading' - the highest grade possible. We are involved in research projects across the whole spectrum of Internet technologies and applications and host the biennial ITA conference series. (We are busy planning for ITA 11!

CAIR consists of ten loosely defined sub-groups, each with their own specialisms but working together on many projects:

--- Network Technologies Group (NTG)
--- Cyber Security Group (CSG)
--- High-Performance Computing Group (HPCG)
--- Health Technologies Group (HTG)
--- Human-Computer Interaction Group (HCIG)
--- Creative Industries Group (CIG)
--- Imaging and Remote Sensing Group (IRSG)
--- Audio-Visual Technologies Group (AVTG)
--- Games Research Development Team (GRDT)
--- Wireless Systems Group (WSG)

These pages provide information for current and potential academic and industrial partners as well as staff who are research active within the group, or who may be interested in following research initiatives.  These will tell you about CAIR staff & students, recent publications, grants & awards, etc. as well as our comprehensive international conference and seminar programme.
