The Institute for System Programming (ISP) of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS; Russian: Институт системного программирования) was founded on January 25, 1994, on the base of the departments of System Programming and Numerical Software of the Institute for Cybernetics Problems of the RAS. ISP RAS belongs to the Division of Mathematical Sciences of the RAS.
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 databaseSedna, 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.
The main task of the council is coordination of research and scientific programs aimed on prioritization of new important directions.
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”.
