Perspectives on Computer Systems Research

Dr. Gurdip Singh

Division Director for Computer and Network Systems (CNS) in the CISE Directorate at National Science Foundation

Divisional Dean of the School of Computing, George Mason University

Abstract:

 

I will cover thoughts on research directions on topics such as next-generation networked systems, edge-to-cloud computing, and resilient systems. I will discuss NSF investments in cloud computing and how they relate to these research directions. I can send a more detailed abstract soon.
