Dr. Siobhán Clarke
Established in 1981, the Distributed Systems Group (DSG) is both the longest standing and largest research group in the Department of Computer Science at Trinity College Dublin. DSG conducts basic and applied research into all aspects of distributed computing extending from the theoretical foundations underpinning the field to system engineering issues. Our expertise is in the areas of middleware, ubiquitous computing, mobile computing and software engineering.
A new EU project named DIVERSIFY has just started in February 2013, with DSG as one of its four partners. DIVERSIFY (2013 – 2016) is funded by the EC FP7 FET proactive program, and explores diversity as the foundation for a novel software design principle and increased adaptive capacities in collaborative adaptive systems, especially the smart urban scale software systems.
