  • History and Objectives
This joint Laboratory was set up in 2014 with the mentioned partners. 

In recent years, the assessment and management of complex socio-environmental systems have increasingly relied on the design and use of computer models as a way to inform, support and sometimes supplement human decision. However, the scale at which problems are now raised, the simultaneous abundance of raw data and scarcity of information available on these systems, the necessity to adopt perspectives that take multiple, possibly conflicting, goals, into account, all of these reasons plead for the development of ICT methods and tools that go beyond the current state of the art and cover all aspects of environmental decision-making processes, including the gathering and processing of quantitative and qualitative data, the design of models that account for the complexities, non-linearities, heterogeneities, and multiple scales of space and time, the intelligent exploration of their outcomes in multiple scenarios and the continuous monitoring of the strategies implemented.
                                                                       
The goal of ICTLab, in that respect, is to design and deliver such methods and tools by conducting and combining investigations in different domains of ICT:
-           Modeling and simulation,
-           Data-mining,
-           Image and speech processing,
-           Information retrieval,
-           Expert-user interactions.

It is expected that, in 2016, two more research themes, complementary to the five others and necessary to fulfill the existing goals, will officially make their appearance in the ICTLab:
-           Sensor networks and embedded systems
-           High-performance computing
  •  Location
ICTLab is located on the 5th floor of USTH main building, on VAST Campus
