Computational Systems and Technology

About ISI Computational Systems and Technology


Computational Systems and Technology (CS&T) is a world leader in computing technologies, from basic to applied, investigating a wide range of hardware and software technologies. Our research addresses all levels of computing, from emerging quantum devices to large deployed heterogeneous cloud systems, and includes the software and tools to enable end users to harness these systems in a highly productive fashion. This research also includes providing reliable computing in challenging domains such as space, mobile, security, and low-power.

Main research groups are:

CS&T also plays an integral role in the following centers, which foster cross-discipinary research:

Current initiatives range from the well-regarded Pegasus project for automating scientific research workflows to creating tools for maximizing adaptive computing system capabilities.

We also provide intellectual leadership within the broader research community through projects such as the multi-institutional, supercomputing-focused Institute for Sustained Performance, Energy and Resilience (SUPER).

CS&T research is supported by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity, Department of Energy, National Science Foundation, Office of Naval Research, Department of Defense, and Department of State, among others.

Our over 50 computing technologies researchers, research programmers and graduate students represent a wide range of disciplines, including electrical engineering, computer science, physics, math, and psychology. ISI Computational Sciences and Technology researchers are based in Arlington, Virginia, near major federal research agencies and the Department of Defense, Waltham, Massachusetts, in Boston's vibrant tech corridor, and in ISI's main campus in Marina del Rey, California.

Computational Systems and Technology is led by Director Stephen Crago.
