Distributed, Parallel and Secure Systems

Our research broadly addresses Systems, ranging from the underlying architectural support for high-performance systems, networks and applications, scalable and secure distributed platforms for cloud computing, big-data storage and processing, to autonomic computing and peer-to-peer systems of Internet scale.

Active Systems-related research topics include: distributed systems, runtimes and application frameworks, operating systems and virtualization, computer architectures, large scale parallel computation, transaction processing, programmable networks, autonomous computing, peer-to-peer systems, scalability and energy efficiency, and security.
