Systems Software Research Group


SSRG Word Cloud Welcome to the homepage of the Systems Software Research Group in the Bradley Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at Virginia Tech. The group's general research areas include operating systems, concurrency, distributed systems, real-time systems, virtualization, run-times, compilers, and middleware. A cross-cutting goal is to understand how to build software systems -- broadly defined -- that are scalable, efficient, and reliable. Ongoing projects include operating systems, hypervisors, and compilers/run-times for heterogeneous architectures; scalable concurrency control techniques; scalabale verification of systems software; and automated concurrency refactoring.
