University of Amsterdam - System and Network Engineering Group (SNE)

The System and Network Engineering (SNE) research group focuses its research on emerging new local and wide area optical networks and the associated models, systems and protocols. The group builds tools and proof-of-concept applications that promote optimal use of these high speed networks, and develops grid middleware to empower applications to optimally allocate and use these infrastructures. Security of the required mechanisms, infrastructure, middleware, applications and the privacy of data in distributed processing environments is an essential aspect of the research. The research group works closely together with the SNE Master and the Computer (Grid) Science Master programs to disseminate knowledge through education.

System and Networking Engineering is one of the groups in the Institute for Informatics of the University of Amsterdam.

See the Research and Projects pages for a listing of the main research lines and current research projects of our group.
