System Software and Distributed Systems

Welcome to the research group on System Software and Distributed Systems
at the University of Trier

Operating systems are an essential part of every computer system. Their deployment ranges from small-scale embedded systems to networks of world-wide connected computers. Within this broad spectrum, a multitude of different and frequently contradictory requirements on operating systems' properties in terms of functional and non-functional characteristics arise. To meet these challenges, our work focuses both on

  • education in current state-of-the-art principles and
  • solutions research in the areas of operating systems and distributed systems

in order to cope with problems currently solved unsatisfactorily or incompletely.
