CONSERT is a Research Group of the Communications and Networks Lab, Dept. of Electronics Engineering of Piraeus University of Applied Sciences.
Our research interests lay in the areas of Computer Networks and Applications, Internet of Things, Smart Environments, Machine Learning, ICT in Education, Games design and development. Members of CONSERT have been long involved in related research activities in the context of research projects at national and international level.
The involvement of CONSERT faculty members in research activities at international level is a long one, starting from the early 90’s, and involving participation in more than 30 research projects, in many of which involvement has been at technical coordination level. The expertise at teaching level is similar, counting more than 20 years of teaching experience of CONSERT faculty members on Computer and Network related courses at many Universities.
