Distributed Systems Laboratory

The DSL group at University of Chicago’s Computer Science Department and lead by Dr. Ian Foster conducts research in various areas of distributed systems with an emphasis on designing, implementing, and evaluating systems, protocols, and applications. Our mission is to prepare the next-generation of researchers and developers in these areas by investigating challenging, high-impact research projects. These projects span many areas, including Grid middleware, Grid applications, and data-intensive scientific computing.
