Your Web Presence

For Researchers

The Department has a number of webpages that include material related to research.

Research Areas (Departmental Website)

At the top level, our Departmental site houses information on broad topics of research that we call Research Areas. These pages are meant to help direct people to the subject that they are interested in. Each research area is presented as a single page that summarizes the information relevant to this topic, including:

Researchers in Computing Science at the U of A are able to add content to the departmental website by logging in with their CSID. To have your research group site listed under your research area, please contact the webmaster.

Research Groups (Group Managed Website)

Research Groups are actual sets of people working together on projects. They may belong to more than one Research Area. Research Group sites provide more detailed information on the work that they are doing. This may include:

  • A more specific list of group members
  • Project descriptions and information
  • Related publications
  • Group contact info

These sites are maintained by people within the research group. If your group does not currently have its own website but would like to create one, you may want to check out these content management options or contact the webmaster for more information.
