Systems at the University of Chicago
The Systems Group is a vibrant, collaborative research community with diverse, synergistic research interests spanning systems, programming languages and software engineering, software and hardware architecture, data-intensive computing and databases, graphics and visualization, and systems biology. The Systems group has deep ties to the Computation Institute and Argonne National Laboratory's Mathematics and Computer Science Division.The Systems Group welcomes Mike Franklin as our newest faculty member (April 1, 2016)! We are also celebrating the launch of our new research center, CERES Center for Unstoppable Computing (January 29, 2016)! We also welcomed Dr. Yanjing Li, Dr. Fred Chong and Dr. Aaron Elmore new faculty members in 2015.
With a strong core of faculty and students, we are growing in broadly-defined strategic clusters. We are currently focused on Data-Intensive Computing, defined inclusively as all computer science areas inspired by activities taking data thru collection, organization, analysis, and new insight (in contrast to the traditional definition). The strategic growth of the Systems Group has the strong support of the department and the university, which together have launched this extraordinary initiative that includes hiring new faculty and major expansion of the PhD program.
