Groups

  • The Cloud Computing Research Group (CCRG) focuses on topics in distributed and cloud computing. Current research involves Web services and Internet-of-Things based business process management on the cloud. This includes topics such as cloud based e-government architectures and processes, security and privacy concerns in distributed an...
  • The Energy Informatics Group carries out interdisciplinary research in the area of renewable energy analytics, smart grids, and energy efficiency. The broader goal of EIG is to make Pakistan use 100% renewable sources for generating electricity by 2050. To this end, the group caries out research in short, medium and long term forecast...
  • The program analysis group focuses on automated verification using program analysis techniques to build reliable and secure programs with an emphasis on parallel, distributed, and concurrent systems software. PAG is currently exploring program analysis techniques for analyzing MPI programs, database applications, and web applications...
  • Data Mining involves extracting informative patterns from large scale data-sets. The rapid growth in this field is fuelled by increasing demand for automated data analysis and the rise in computation power. The Computer Science Department at SBASSE is currently undertaking research in the realm of parallel algorithms for data mining,...
  • The area of networked systems explores how computing devices communicate and deals with the design of network architectures, protocols, and applications that enable such communication. The focus is on fundamental theoretical concepts in computer networks as well as its applications especially in the developing world. In particular, NS...
  • HPC focuses on developing software and tools that improve the performance, scalability and programmability of parallel computing systems and applications. Recent years have seen a sharp rise in the demand for computational resources and there are many diverse areas, including simulation and modeling in engineering and design, data min...
  • Babar Qureshi has also worked  on some aspects of the now famous duality between gravitational and gauge theories, first elucidated by Juan Maldacena. They have applied this duality to lower dimensional condensed matter systems as well as studied more formal aspects of the duality.
  • Recently Immense interest has been generated in the quantum infra-red radiation of gauge theories after Hawking's proposal that they may contain the degrees required to solve black hole information paradox. The group is taking this idea one step further and analyzing the non-perturbative aspects of this phenomena and they hav...
  • The group is also interested in many aspects of string theory and dynamics of supersymmetric field theories. In this regard, the current focus is to use topological strings to uncover various dualities among the supersymmetric field theories.
