Research interests include but are not limited to: adaptive systems, distributed systems, human cognition, human-computer interaction, information retrieval and filtering, intelligent agents, knowledge representation, knowledge systems, learning and aiding environments, ontology engineering, semantic Web, social networking.

Our most active areas are intelligent support for Web information management, knowledge networks and management, social networks, semantic web, digital libraries, personalization / adaptivity, and Web-based learning systems. The most recent focus of our research is on educational gamification.

The work of the IIS research group is supported by funding from the NSF NSDL, CCLI, and IUSE Programs, NSF HBCU-UP, WSSU RIP, and the NASA NC Space Grant.

We welcome inquiries about our activities and actively seek collaborative possibilities in academia, industry, business, and government.
