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, distributed systems, real-time systems, virtualization, language run-times, compilers, middleware and networks. A cross-cutting goal is to understand how to build software systems -- broadly defined -- that are scalable, efficient, and reliable. Ongoing projects include transactional memory for multicores and distributed systems, scalable operating systems for multicores, multicore real-time Linux, automated concurrency refactoring, and virtual machine migration.
