The systems and networking group at UCSD engages in a wide range of experimental and theoretical research. Our current projects span fault-tolerant networks and systems, high-speed router design, storage system design, network measurement and traffic analysis, peer-to-peer system design, network security, mobile code architectures, high-performance cluster computing, and wireless networking. Our group consists of eight core faculty, five affiliated faculty (in a broad range of areas including security, machine learning and programming languages) and over 50 graduate students and research staff.

George Porter March 28— Today at NSDI, George Porter and his colleagues received the 2017 "Test-of-Time" award, which recognizes papers at least 10 years old that have had significant and lasting impact on the field. This award was for their work on X-Trace (NSDI 2007), which showed how to do correctness and performance debugging in distributed network-based applications and formed a key portion of George's dissertation. Congratulations George!

September 23Peng Huang successfully defended his dissertation today on "Understanding and Dealing with Failures in Cloud-Scale Systems". Peng is spending a year as a postdoc at MSR Redmond, and then heads to Johns Hopkins University next year to start as an Assistant Professor. Congratulations Peng! Peng Huang
