The Systems Laboratory aims at enabling use of latest Information and Communication Technologies in the areas of CEU core expertise. Special attention is paid to modeling of environmental and social systems and promoting use of geospatial technologies. Syslab develops and runs the graduate courses and workshops on use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and remote sensing tailored for the needs of various CEU departments and units.

Syslab also conducts regular in-service trainings for practitioners and professionals on using ICTs in various domains, such as disaster management, water security, biodiversity conservation, among others. In order to keep up with latest developments and provide participants with first hands information, Syslab cooperates with global leaders in geospatial technologies, such as UN Office for OUter Space Affairs, UN Development Program, European Comission's Joint Reserach Center, Esri, Google. See the ISEPEI Project for more details.

The Spatial Mapping and Analysis Reserach Group was launched by Syslab in 2012 to establish the platform for CEU community to cooperate on applying geospatial technologies in cross-departmental and multidisciplinary research.
