The efficient hardware resource management is an ever-increasing requirement for both server and embedded systems as new computer architectures, such as many-core processors and 40+Gbps interconnects, are emerging. The operating system is the main system software that manages processor, memory, and I/O resources in an efficient manner with respect to high-throughput and real-time. The main research topic of System Software Laboratory (SSLab) at Konkuk University is operating systems for cyber-physical systems and high-performance computing on next-generation architectures. Specifically, our research interests include:
Real-time operating systems
Software platforms for ground and aerial vehicles
Operating systems for many-core processors
Containers and virtualization
High-speed interconnects and protocols
Several exciting research projects are being carried out in the laboratory. Current projects include Real-time scheduling and networking for partitioned systems and Scalable operating system for many-core processors. We will continue to open our source codes for contributing to these research areas in practical way. Researches in the laboratory are partly supported by funding from Korean government.
We look for graduate students who are self-motivated and have a good background in operating systems. If you are interested in graduate training in system software, please do not hesitate to contact us. [Information for the laboratory applicant]
