Systems at the University of Chicago
The Systems Group is a vibrant, collaborative research community with diverse, synergistic research interests spanning systems and networking, 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 Dr. Fred Chong as a new faculty member in July 2015! (April 25, 2015)
The Systems Group welcomes 15 new PhD students in Fall 2015! (April 15, 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.
