Reliable and High Performance Computing
Computing research at the Coordinated Science Laboratory spans many research areas and involves multiple laboratories and centers on campus. This discipline covers everything from VLSI design and chip architecture to algorithms and protocol research. Computing has longstanding core strengths in parallel computer architecture, dependable and trustworthy systems, computer security and mobile computing.
Computing co-hosts several large initiatives in advanced parallel computing, such as the Intel/Microsoft-sponsored Universal Parallel Computing Research Center, the NSF Blue Waters PetaScale Computing Center and the NVIDIA CUDA Center of Excellence. This large-scale activity has made CSL and the University of Illinois a focal point in the future of parallel, multi-core computing.
Wireless Networking & Distributed Systems
Wireless networking research in Computing pertains to a wide range of networks, including infrastructure-based wireless networks, mesh networks, mobile ad hoc networks, sensor networks and vehicular networks. Topics of interest include cross-layer protocols for efficiently utilizing wireless spectrum, security and privacy mechanisms for wireless networks, mobile applications, multimedia over wireless networks, and testbeds for wireless network evaluation.
Trust and Security
Computing is at the forefront of computer security research, which models novel attack defenses and builds extremely robust systems. The Coordinated Science Laboratory co-hosts projects such as the Trusted Illiac and Trustworthy Cyber Infrastructure for the Power Grid that provide the resources to address pressing problems facing the information society. Through the Information Trust Institute, researchers are able to collaborate with colleagues across other departments and colleges in order to obtain the broad perspective necessary to build trustworthy computing systems.
