The Cloud Computing paradigm is rapidly transforming the development, deployment, and management of Information Systems on a basic level. Cloud technologies, such as virtualization, application containers, multi-cloud federation and the Intercloud are enabling elasticity, cost-efficiency and scalability for private deployments as well as public offerings.
SNET is conducting applied research oriented towards the needs of business, academic, and private cloud consumers. Some of our research areas include:
- The description and brokering of cloud services using simple domain-specific languages.
- Cloud brokering and matchmaking using constraint modelling.
- Secure federated multi-cloud access management using standards such as OpenID Connect, SAML, and XACML.
- Attribute-based encryption technologies for personal data sharing
- Cloud location information and metadata structures. more
Data in today’s business landscape are created and stored at exponentially large scales. Therefore, the need to improve business operations through data-driven decisions has emerged as an important objective for many growing companies. The field of data science addresses those needs by combining computer science, engineering, mathematics, statistics, and predictive modeling to generate analytical insights about data from a variety of sources. Data often require a great amount of cleaning and pre-processing; so many research topics are also directed toward identifying different solutions for parallelized and distributed computing and data storage: from the big players in this market like Apache Hadoop and Spark through to CUDA. The field of data science interfaces with a variety of other disciplines, and by utilizing new computational technologies together with statistics and predictive modeling we strive to provide unique analytical insights from data at large scales. more
Online Social Networks (OSNs) have become an important part of our everyday online lives. We communicate, share content, and organize meetings and events using OSN platforms. However, even though there is a strong trend towards OSN services to become the main communication medium, most OSN platforms are still proprietary, closed services that keep users from connecting directly and seamlessly to the services of other OSN platforms. SNET is working on novel architectures and mechanisms to
mitigate the lock-in effects of today’s OSN platforms and build new and innovative services. Research in this area addresses topics such as privacy and security, protocol design, distributed system architectures, and mobile services. more
The Ubiquitous Computing paradigm describes a world in which electronic devices are not only unobtrusively embedded within the human’s environment but also in which electronic devices are interacting with each other to support humans in their daily life. Hence, Ubiquitous Computing deals with a wide range of research topics related to Pervasive Computing, Wearable Computing, Ambient Intelligence, Intelligent Environments, Automotive Computing and Smart Homes. Thereby, the context- and location-awareness of Ubiquitous Computing systems are the key enablers for many application scenarios such as carsharing, navigation systems, location-based marketing, home automation or context-aware services in general. The Ubiquitous Computing field is highly dependent on the underlying wireless communication technologies such as 5G networks, WLAN, Bluetooth, NFC etc., and many research questions deal with the optimization of protocols and algorithms that are applied over these wireless communication networks. more
