The Software Systems Laboratory serves as the focal point for interdisciplinary research on software systems and applications at the University of Michigan. The lab focuses on the experimental design, implementation, and evaluation of systems software technologies which enable the development of a wide range of emerging applications. Examples of such enabling technologies covered by the Software Lab include biological databases, collaborative computing, compiler and language design, embedded and real-time computing, fault-tolerant computing, file systems, host and network security systems, mobile and distributed systems, network protocols and architectures, operating systems, peer-to-peer storage systems, power-aware adaptation, security-policy management, virtual machines, web databases.
The Software Lab consists of 14 EECS professors, several research scientists and post-doctoral fellows, and 60+ graduate students who are primarily supported through research assistantships and fellowships. With a research budget of over $2 million per year, the Software Lab receives significant support from NSF, DARPA, ARDA, ONR, NRL and a growing number of industrial sponsors including AT&T, Cisco, GM, HP, Hitachi, IBM, Intel, Lucent Bell Labs, MCNC, MCI, Microsoft, Mitsubishi, Pfizer, and Sun Microsystems.
We are located in room 4808 of the brand new Computer Science and Engineering Building on the north campus of the University of Michigan. The Software Systems Lab can be reached by calling (734) 764-9401 weekdays from 9:00am to 5:00pm. We welcome any comments, questions, or concerns.
