Estudio 2006
Estudio 2004
Estudio 2001-2002

The main goal of the Center for Web Research (CWR) is to perform basic research on problems related to the Web, focusing on five specific aspects:

  • Management and search of non traditional information (multimedia, structured, etc.)
  • Data mining
  • Mathematical modeling of the Web
  • Data extraction from the web
  • Distributed systems and parallelism.
Specifically, we plan to research on combinatorial pattern matching on images, audio and text; similarity searching of atomic and structured objects; handling semistructured information; mathematical simulation of the process that occur in the Web; and distributed agents and platforms in Internet.

The CWR becomes a unique opportunity to join in a common project the efforts of geographically distributed top level researchers.
