Universities, R&D Groups and Academic Networks

KDIR is a unique forum for universities, research groups and research projects to present their research and scientific results, be it by presenting a paper, hosting a tutorial or instructional course or demonstrating its research products in demo sessions, by contributing towards panels and discussions in the event's field of interest or by presenting their project, be it by setting up an exhibition booth, by being profiled in the event's web presence or printed materials or by suggesting keynote speakers or specific thematic sessions.

Special conditions are also available for Research Projects which wish to hold meetings at INSTICC events.

Current Academic Partners:

Sapienza University of Rome

Sapienza University of Rome, founded in 1303 by Pope Boniface VIII, is one of the oldest universities in the world and a high performer among the largest universities in international rankings.


Dicode project

The goal of the Dicode project was to facilitate and augment collaboration and decision making in data-intensive and cognitively-complex settings. To do so, whenever appropriate, the project exploited and built on prominent high-performance computing paradigms and large data processing technologies to meaningfully search, analyze and aggregate data existing in diverse, extremely large, and rapidly evolving sources. Moreover, particular emphasis was given to the deepening of our insights about the proper exploitation of big data, as well as to collaboration and sense making support issues. Building on current advancements, the solution proposed by the Dicode project brings together the reasoning capabilities of both the machine and the humans. This innovative solution incorporates and orchestrates a set of interoperable services that reduce the data-intensiveness and complexity overload at critical decision points to a manageable level, thus permitting stakeholders to be more productive and effective in their work practices. The achievement of the Dicode project’s goal was validated through three use cases addressing clearly established problems. These cases concern: (i) scientific collaboration supported by integrated large-scale knowledge discovery in clinico-genomic research, (ii) management of pertinent information from heterogeneous data to facilitate the process of making clinical decisions in drug trials, and (iii) capturing tractable, commercially valuable high-level information from unstructured Web 2.0 data for opinion mining. The project’s results are presented in detail in a recently published Springer book (http://link.springer.com/book/10.1007/978-3-319-02612-1).


University of Cagliari

The University of Cagliari was founded in 1606 along the lines of the old Spanish Universities of Salamanca, Valladolid and Léridaand. It is a public state University which has about 31,102 enrolled students and over 1,000  teaching staff. Besides that, about 200 visting professors come to the University of Cagliari yearly. At the moment it is one of the largest enterprises in the Region of Sardinia, thanks to its international policy, studies and its numerous agreements with prestigious universities in Europe and around the world.
