Welcome to

USI’s Computer Systems Institute

Università della Svizzera italiana

Computer systems (or simply “systems”) encompass all areas of computer science directly related to, or having an impact on, the design, architecture, development, deployment, and operation of software and hardware systems. 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: operating systems, networking, distributed systems, security, real-time systems, cloud computing, data management, programming languages, middleware, ubiquitous computing, embedded systems, computer architecture, and a wide range of applications. Historically, these areas have existed independently, but the increased complexity of computing artifacts requires collaborative efforts from multiple points of view to address relevant problems.

At USI’s Computer Systems Institute, faculty members develop and promote world-class research and teaching in the area of systems.
