Distributed Systems, Architectures and Computer Networks (DSACN)

This line of research studies the elements that work as a foundation for contemporary computer systems. The challenges of providing computer systems are present at various scales, from the connection of multiple functional elements within a chip to the creation of reconfigurable, multiprocessor systems and reaching the interconnection of multiple data centers in computing clouds. The benefits of developing these technologies are reflected in performance, resilience, fault tolerance, and security, among many other properties that would never be achieved by an isolated system and a single process. Among some topics covered in this line of research, the following stand out: many-core architectures, special-purpose architectures, network-on-chip, high-performance computing, computer networks and wired and wireless data communication, cloud computing, ubiquitous and pervasive computing, internet of things, cybersecurity.
