Research Projects

The overall theme of our research is making programming easier. We are undertaking a number of projects directed at this goal. These include:

Previous projects (in various states of usability):

Research Laboratories

We are responsible for the Brown University Internet Laboratory. This facility is designed to let students and researchers experiment with large-scale Internet applications. It provides the hardware and software for running and testing web applications that can handle thousands of users. The laboratory features a 20-seat classroom/lab with a variety of front-end machines, and a backroom with both SMP machines and clusters of various types.


Software Systems

Systems currently under development. For recent status and the latest versions of these systems please send email to spr@cs.brown.edu.
