Welcome to the FSU CS EXPLORER (EXtreme-scale comPuting, modeLing, netwORking & systEms Research) laboratory. We are a group of researchers who share common interests in

  • exploring cutting-edge technologies for designing, evaluating, constructing, programming, and using extreme-scale distributed computing systems including super-computing systems, cloud computing data centers, networked computing systems, heterogeneous computing systems, and Internet of things,
  • and developing, implementing, and evaluating techniques at the architecture, systems, and applications levels that advance the state-of-the-art distributed computing in cost-effectiveness, scalability, power-efficiency, reliability, security, and ease-of-use.

The EXPLORER laboratory is funded in part by Department of Energy Office of Science, National Science Foundation, Los Alamos National Laboratory, and Florida State University.
