The Networks Research Group (NRG) conducts basic research in networking within the Department of Computer Science at Boston University. Our members are affiliated with various institutes and centers at Boston University, including the Hariri Institute, the BU Center for Reliable Information Systems & Cyber Security (RISCS) and the Center for Information and Systems Engineering (CISE).
Our research interests are broad, and encompass network measurement, the design of new network architectures and network protocols, the design and implementation of networked applications and systems, and network performance analysis. Application domains of interest range from cloud computing to social networks to peer-to-peer systems.
We offer a number of courses in computer networking, suitable for an undergraduate emphasis in this area and for graduate study.
We meet regularly on Mondays in MCS 148 for a weekly presentation and discussion. All are welcome.
