R and D groups[edit]

Compiler Technologies Department 
The department is specialized in applying compiler approach to different computer science fields, as well as modern optimizing compiler development and design. The first compiler projects started in early 1980s. The recent research activity of the team is concentrated on parallel programming and reverse engineering.
Computing Systems Architecture Department 
The main directions of the department research activities have been connected with effective implementation of network architectures and hardware platforms for local and global networks.
Information Systems Department 
The main activities of the department: multi-user fully functional relational DBMS, CORBA-based technology for distributed information systems, XML-based technology for heterogeneous data integration, native XML database Sedna, text mining and information retrieval.
Software Development Tools Department 
The main direction is creation of tools supporting formal specification and modeling languages and easing the development process.
Software Engineering Department 
The spectrum of the scientific research of the department covers a broad range of Software Engineering, including analysis of programs and their models, verification and validation, standardization issues including development of open software standards, various aspects of development, maintenance and evolution of software together with methods of education and deployment of advanced technologies.
System Programming Department 
Research activities of the department lie in the area of program static analysis, excavation of architecture using program code and visualization of software architecture model, modelling of architecture and code generation using software model.
Theoretical Computer Science Department 
The members of the department are specialists in different branches of mathematics and theoretical computer science: combinatorics, complexity of computations, probabilistic methods, mathematical logic, formal methods of program analysis, logical programming, mathematical cryptography.

Councils[edit]

Academic council 
The main task of the council is coordination of research and scientific programs aimed on prioritization of new important directions.
Dissertation council 
Being a part of the Institute Dissertation council D.002.087.01 considers applications for scientific degrees of candidate and doctor of physical and mathematical, and technical sciences according to qualification standard 05.13.11 “Mathematical and program support for computers, their complexes, and networks”.

Centers[edit]

Verification Center of the Operating System Linux 
The mission of the Center is to propagate the Linux platform by ensuring its high reliability and compatibility through the use of open standards and advanced testing and verification technologies.
Center of competence in parallel and distributed computing 
The goal of the center is in significant increase of the usage of parallel and distributed computations in the areas of educational, research, and production activities of Russian organizations.
