Welcome to LiNCS!

Laboratory for Information, Network and Computing Studies!

The laboratory, directed by Dr. Weimao Ke, is a research group in the College of Computing and Informatics at Drexel University, formerly known as the Collge of IST or the iSchool at Drexel. In LiNCS, we conduct research in areas related to information retrieval (IR), network science, and computing/information systems. With a system-centric focus, we also investigate issues and questions related to human-information interaction and aim to better understand how systems can be designed to serve the user.

Recent Recognition/Accomplishments:

  • Weimao Ke was awarded an NSF EAGER grant to study Decentralized Searches in Large‐scale Agent Networks (2016)
  • Weimao Ke received the Outstanding Online Faculty Award, Drexel University (2013)
  • Weimao Ke's paper on the recently proposed Least Information Theory and application was nominated for the Vannevar Bush Best Paper award for the ACM/IEEE JCDL conference (2013)
