Distributed and Networked Systems (DNS) Research Group
Distributed and networked systems are providing the infrastructure for computation (information processing), communication and storage involving a heterogeneous and potentially large number people, devices and software systems. Examples of such distributed and/or networked systems include local and wide area networks that make up the Internet, wireless/cellular communication networks for exchanging voice, video and data, wireless sensor networks for surveillance, monitoring and information gathering, multi-processor systems for high-performance information processing, and computing Clouds for providing centralized computing/storage services to remote users/entities/systems. These networked systems represent strategic infrastructure for any nation, with the UAE as a front-runner being no exception.
The Distributed and Networked Systems (DNS) Research Group aims at developing the protocols, system architecture, mechanisms and underlying principles for the above-mentioned systems. Our research will focus on techniques and architectures which are not only practical and deployable, but also provably correct/optimal. Our research areas include network protocols/mechanisms, wireless and mobile networks, multi-processor systems, network-on-a-chip, cloud computing, parallel processing, and interconnection of things such as interconnected vehicles, robots, etc. The ultimate objective of this research group is to benefit the information and communication technology sector of the UAE and the region at large, contribute to the scientific development and competitiveness of the University of Sharjah, the UAE and the region at large, as well as contribute to the training of highly-qualified personnel through the involvement of students and post-doctoral researchers.
