Distributed Systems


The Distributed Systems Group at INESC-ID (the computer science and engineering research laboratory associated with IST – University of Lisbon) conducts research in several topics in the broad area of computer systems. The overarching goal of our research is to improve the abstractions, mechanisms and techniques that are used for building distributed and concurrent applications, so that these applications become more robust, more secure, and perform better. The research topics of the group include cloud computing, concurrency and parallelism, mobile computing, system security, data center systems, and blockchain.
