CIS Research

During their senior year, all CIS students conduct research on an emerging development in computing and present their findings to their peers. Recent work has been presented on various topics such as robotics, cloud computing, biotechnology, wireless technologies, virtual reality, nanotechnology and mobile computing.

The Computer Science department is involved in several research activities in collaboration with the Math department, Dubuque Medical Associates Clinic, Iowa State University, and collaborators in different disciplines including physicians, medical informatics, and statisticians.

The department has received several grants to supervise collaborate research work in the area of medical data analysis. The main objective is to find useful treatments associated with patients' clinical records. Data mining, machine learning, and statistical analysis models are used to classify patients clinical data in order to assess and improve treatments efficacy.

The department is responsible for maintaining and updating part of the University of Iowa and Wisconsin-Madison HIV patients data. Analysis tools associated with the HIV/AIDS data are available on our web portal: http://hivdatamining.com. In 2011, the department held the first Medical Informatics research conference in the Dubuque area: http://www.clarke.edu/SCVMMI.
