The Very Large Scale Computing Lab (VLSC) is trying to solve some of the critical software and hardware challenges of building large-scale services.
We are interested in all aspects of large-scale distributed systems be they datacenters, edge computing, fully decentralized systems, self organizing systems, and we are working on scalable design, failure resilience, performance and privacy-preservation.
We focus on building systems with performance, efficiency, and robustness. We try to build practical systems by understanding the intricacies of existing layers in both software and hardware; and revisiting the design in a principled manner.
PARSA at EPFL engages in research and educational activities to pioneer future server design.
We are the Network Architecture Lab, and we work on fundamental questions regarding network system design.
Our research focuses on software and systems security. We target techniques that both enable developers to discover and remove bugs and make programs resilient against the exploitation of unknown or unpatched vulnerabilities.
We develop techniques and abstractions for building trustworthy computer systems, i.e., systems that are safe and secure.
Research in DIAS lab focuses on addressing these challenges by adapting data management technology to computer architecture trends, enabling discoveries in scientific domains through automating physical database design and revolutionizing exploration algorithms in very large data repositories.
The DEDIS team is working on projects related to large-scale collective authorities (cothorities), which distribute trust among a number of independent parties to allow scalable self-organizing communities.
The Data Center Systems Laboratory (DCSL) focuses on systems-level problems within datacenters combining operating systems, networks, and computer architecture.
Our research is about the theory and practice of distributed computing.
