Welcome!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 high-performance, scalable, reliable, and secure. Ongoing projects include operating systems, hypervisors, and compilers/run-times for multicore and heterogeneous architectures; scalable and secure concurrency control and consensus algorithms; and scalable verification of systems software.
