Research Focus & Anticipated Benefits

The Center for Experimental Research in Computer Systems, an NSF Industry/University Cooperative Research Center (I/UCRC), promotes the creation and transfer of technical knowledge through the design, implementation, and measurement of potentially large-scale prototype hardware/software systems.

The center specializes in designing and evaluating computer and software systems through experimental methods.  The research focuses on complex systems, including their hardware, communications and system-level software, and applications. As one of the largest experimental systems programs in the United States, the center aims to advance information and computing technologies, construct the interactive information grids of the future, and develop the intellectual capital to advance these and future technologies.

NSF's I/UCRC program features industrially relevant research, industrial support and collaboration in research and education, and direct transfer of research results and technology to U.S. industry, improving its competitive posture in world markets.

 

Education & Outreach

An I/UCRC not only contributes to the nation's research infrastructure base; it also enhances the intellectual capacity of the engineering and science workforce through the integration of research and education. The program leverages NSF funding with industry resources to support students performing industrially relevant and interdisciplinary research.

Faculty of the Center for Experimental Research in Computer Systems teach a large variety of graduate and undergraduate courses, and students are invited to perform hands-on research that provides them with the knowledge and tools to be successful both in graduate school and in their chosen professions.
