The division works in several areas where we contribute to future solutions in software engineering, distributed and parallel systems, network systems, networked systems security, and data science and applied AI.


Our faculty have these main research interests:

SCS Division of Software and Computer Systems conducts research and education on fundamental aspects of software technology and computer systems focusing on cloud computing, service computing, model-based computing systems, social networks, time aware systems, data science and applied artificial intelligence (AI), software engineering, networked systems, internetworking and security and privacy.

Distributed systems:Seif Haridi: parallel and distributed computing, peer-to-peer computing, streaming analytics, programming systems; Vladimir Vlassov: data intensive computing, stream processing, distributed and parallel computing; Jim Dowling: large-scale distributed computer systems, software systems; Amir Payberah: distributed systems, data intensive computing, deep learning; Paris Carbone: distributed data management systems.

Software construction and analysis:Benoit Baudry: software engineering, software testing, software diversity, DevOps (a set of practices that combines software development (Dev) and information-technology operations (Ops)); David Broman: programming and modelling languages, cyber-physical systems, model-based computing systems, compilers, machine learning; Mihhail Matskin: software engineering, software technology; Mira Kajko Mattson: software engineering).

Data science:Magnus Boman (computational epidemiology, learning machines), Henrik Boström (ensemble learning, conformal prediction, interpretable machine learning), Sarunas Girdzijauskas (decentralized machine learning, gossip learning, information network analytics, graph mining, online social networks), Anne Håkansson (artificial intelligence, multi-agent systems, knowledge management).

Networked systems: Dejan Kostic (data centers, geo-distributed storage systems, software-defined networking, network functions virtualization), Gerald Q. Maguire Jr., Panagiotis Papadimitratos (secure routing, secure communication, credential management, IoT security). 

Internetworking:Marco Chiesa (Internet routing, software-defined networking, network resilience, network performance), Gerald Q. Maguire Jr., Panagiotis Papadimitratos.

Security and Privacy:Panagiotis Papadimitratos (networked systems security, privacy enhancing technologies, information-theoretic and physical layer security, secure localization).
