The rise of the Internet and our ability to access vast information troves as well as communicate with an increasingly diverse set of devices has led to a renewed emphasis on improving the performance, scalability, reliability, and security of the modern networks on which we now depend so much.

It has also led to the emergence of a vast array of new problems that arise simply because of the availability of ubiquitous connectivity, e.g., understanding how social networks can contribute to and influence the dissemination of information. Research in networked systems focuses on tackling problems in these two vital and often dependent areas.

Research in this area includes:

  • Next Generation Internet
  • Internet of Things
  • Wireless Networks
  • Sensor Networks
  • Social Networks
  • Network Science
