SAT Solver leaders since 2005
IIIS has been a world leader in solving the Satisfiability Problem (SAT) since 2005. SAT is the first and central problem of NP-hardness, (that is, SAT is the core problem in what is hard and what is easy to compute). IIIS has won several awards (2005, 2007, 2009, 2012 and 2014) for stochastic local search algorithms for solving random categories of SAT benchmark problems in international competitions. IIIS also had the best Artificial Intelligence Planner, winning competitions in 2009 and 2011 and also developer of worldwide leading Vertex Cover solvers.

Outstanding Achievement by International Student
Sankalp Khanna, a PhD Student at Griffith’s University’s Institute for Integrated and intelligent Systems, was announced as the Winner of the “Outstanding Achievement by an International student” category in the prestigious QLD Government “Celebrating International Education and Training Industry Showcase 2006”. The showcase was designed to recognise and reward outstanding achievements in Queensland's international education and training industry and attracted nominations from all schools, universities and other CRICOS registered providers in QLD. Sankalp came to Griffith as in International Student in 2002. Even before graduating at the top of his class with a GPA of 7.0, Sankalp was offered, and commenced, a teaching position at the University. He is currently pursuing a PhD with a prestigious scholarship from the E-Health Research Centre, a joint venture between CSIRO and the Queensland Government. 12/09/06
