ADvanced Systems Laboratory (ADSL)

Dr. Andrea Arpaci-Dusseau and Dr. Remzi Arpaci-Dusseau lead the ADSL. The group is interested in developing new technology in file and storage systems, although it occasionally branches out into more general systems work in operating systems, virtual machines and other related topics. Current work examines new topics in how datacenters should be constructed; see the WISDOM page for more details.

Paradyn Tools Project

The Paradyn project develops technology that aids tool and application developers in their pursuit of high-performance, scalable, parallel and distributed software. The primary project, Paradyn, leverages a technique called dynamic instrumentation to efficiently obtain performance profiles of unmodified executables. This dynamic binary instrumentation technology is independently available to researchers via the Dyninst API.

Database Group

Welcome to the database systems group of the Department of Computer Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. We have been conducting database related research since 1976 and are considered to be one of the best database groups in the country. We work on a variety of research topics including building next-generation database systems, data integration, data science and database theory. Learn more at

Wisconsin Multifacet Project

The Wisconsin Multifacet Project seeks to improve the multiprocessor servers that form the computational infrastructure for Internet web servers, databases and other demanding applications. Work focuses on using the transistor bounty provided by Moore's Law to improve multiprocessor performance, cost and fault tolerance, while also making these systems easier to design and program. Dr. Mark Hill and Dr. David Wood lead the project.

WiNGS Lab @ UW

The Wisconsin Wireless and NetworkinG Systems (WiNGS) Laboratory was established at UW-Madison in summer 2005. Research in the WiNGS lab is conducted in the areas of networking and distributed systems, with a primary focus on wireless and mobile networking. Research activities in the lab span a diverse set of activities, ranging from algorithmic design and analysis, and systems building through functional prototypes.
