The Intelligent Distributed Systems Research Group at the University of Craiova is lead by Prof. Costin Badica, PhD. The group's research interest covers a hybrid palette of methods and techniques derived from classical artificial intelligence, computational intelligence, and intelligent agents. Distributed systems contain loosely-coupled components running on networked computers that communicate and coordinate their actions by message transfer. The new generation of intelligent distributed systems is expected to pose special challenges of adaptation and fruitful combination of results of both areas.

The aim of our research group is to contribute to the advancement of theoretical foundations, principles and technologies of intelligent distributed systems, as well as to the more pragmatic issues concerning their practical application by developing real systems and solving real-world problems.
