Advanced Computing for Science

Seeks to allow scientists to address complex and large-scale computing and data analysis problems beyond what is possible today. The department is developing software components which will operate in a distributed environment.

Columbia University

Distributed Computing and Communications Laboratory: This lab pursues experimental research of networked systems. Works to develop fundamental novel networking technologies and maximize their impact by exporting them to industry and academia.

Distributed Computing Group

The research interests of the group include: data structures and algorithms, distributed computing (e.g.: routing, file systems, and generally scalability and decentralization of data and algorithms), peer-to-peer computing, mobile computing, networking, ad-hoc networks, online algorithms and randomization.

Extreme! Computing

Indiana University Computer Science high performance distributed computing and grid computing lab.

Georgia Tech Systems Research Group

Research group in the College of Computing. Focuses include distributed operating systems, mobile computing, discrete event simulation, and cluster computing for media applications.

Horus Project

Reliable distributed computing research in Cornell University computer science department. Has information on Ensemble, a publicly distributed toolkit based on Horus research.

MIT Parallel & Distributed Operating Systems Group

This group's focus is to build and investigate software systems for parallel and distributed environments. They have conducted research in operating systems, networking, mobile computing, language design, compiler design, and architecture, taking a pragmatic approach: "we build high-performance, reliable, and working systems."

MIT Theory of Distributed Systems Group

MIT's Theory of Distributed Systems (TDS) research group works on a wide range of problems involving distributed and real-time systems. The work has a theoretical flavor, but is closely tied to practice. Roughly speaking, the research can be classified into: Formal Modeling and Verification, Algorithms, Data Structures and Lower Bounds, and Applications.

SRI Secure Systems Research

Research focus on authentication and secure collaboration in networked systems. Part of SRI International's Computer Science Laboratory.

The Panic Lab Homepage

The focus of our group is on Pervasive, Available, No-futs, Internet Computing (PANIC). Information and an archive of collected papers.

University of Cambridge

Computer Laboratory Systems Research Group is the largest research area in the Computer Laboratory covering hardware, communications hardware and software, operating systems and distributed systems.
