We conduct research in high performance computing and communication, especially in the design and prototype development of scalable software systems, where scalable software means software which can cooperate hundreds or more processes working collectively. Our current emphasis is on scalable system software for data management and data access and on having a better understanding of scalable data-centric system software development.

Our current research projects include

These projects are supported in part by National Science Foundation (NSF), Department of Energy (DoE), and other federal agencies and by industrial sponsors, and are conducted in collaboration with researchers inside and outside of IIT. In particular, some of the projects are joint projects with Argonne and Fermi national laboratories.

SCS Lab Opening Positions

The Scalable Computing Software (SCS) laboratory at the Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, USA is seeking highly qualified, self-motivate Ph.D. students and post doctoral senior research associates for its on-going projects, especially for its memory system and I/O system projects (see Server-Push Data Access Architecture at the SCS web site). Solid undergraduate education is a must, and Master degree or equivalent graduate study is a plus for Ph.D. students. Solid undergraduate and graduate training and a record of research activities are required for post doctoral research associate positions. Research assistantship and research associate support are available for qualified candidates.

Interested students are encouraged to read SCS publications and projects before contact Professor Xian-He Sun at sun [at] iit [dot] edu.
