About The Alpha Lab

Welcome to The Alpha Lab based in School of Software, Dalian University of Technology (DUT), China.

Alpha has the meaning of first in Greek. We borrow this word to express the idea that we pursue being extraordinary not only in academic research, but also in fully exploiting the potential of ourselves. We are a great meritocracy. We value hard work and talents. We embrace the change and the differences.


Our goal is to create innovation through conducting interdisciplinary, application-driven academic research. We are interested in a broad spectrum of cutting-edge research topics including social computing, computational social science, big data, and mobile social networks.


  Full name of the Lab: The Alpha Lab @ Dalian University of Technology, China.

Address: The first floor, Office Building, School of Software, Dalian University of Technology, Development Zone, Dalian 116620 China.
