Key Features

The Large-Scale Systems Management Lab research aims to develop mathematical modeling and simulation techniques for design, control and architecture of large-scale systems such as computer/communication networks, with which the resulting systems achieve high performance, low vulnerability and highly efficiency energy. Our research focus is on network-science oriented design frameworks, fundamental technologies and highly qualified services, particularly for large-scale computer/communication network systems. The laboratory was established in June 2012, and we welcome students from abroad who have strong interest in theories and simulation skills for designing smart services over large-scale complex systems including Blockchains, data centers, cognitive radio networks, and energy-harvesting networks.
