José Bento's current research lies at the intersection of distributed algorithms and machine learning. In 2011 he received the SIGWEB DocEng Best paper award and won the RecSys-CAMRa2011 Challenge on context-aware recommendation systems. In 2014 he received a Disney Inventor Award for his work on distributed optimization.

Hao Jiang's research focus is computer vision. His interests include object recognition, matching, 3D shape reconstruction, tracking and action recognition. He has been studying efficient schemes to tackle these problems based on relaxation methods, graph methods, PDE methods and machine learning schemes. He is also interested in multimedia information processing, integration and large scale realtime media systems.

Robert Muller is primarily interested in computational systems biology and in the development of formal, machine-executable specifications of cellular processes. He is also interested in the application of type systems to the design and implementation of reliable and efficient programming languages.

Edward Sciore's research interests lie primarily in the field of database systems, especially database design, web-based data access, metadata, and the meaningful communication of data between disparate sources. He is also interested in object-oriented design methodologies, in particular how applications interace with database systems and other middleware.

Robert Signorile's interests are in distributed systems, networks, agents and simulation. He is currently pursuing work that attempts to merge artificial intelligence techniques (such as learning and planning methodologies and distributed agents) with formal simulation. Another area of research is in applied distributed computing with special interest in multi-agent based simulation and agent based modeling for social simulation. He plans to begin work with distributed sensor networks, perhaps with some simple robots as the experimental platform.

Howard Straubing's research is in the theory of computation, particularly the connections among logic, automata and computational complexity. His current research projects involve algebraic and model-theoretic approaches to circuit complexity and to automata operating on unranked trees.
