Welcome to SysNet
If you are not intimately aware of the limitations of your solution, you are not intimately aware of your solution. Dan Kaminsky
The SysNet Lab at FAST NUCES Islamabad covers a wide range of systems research from both the EE and CS domain. The lab research initiatives range from embedded and cyber-physical systems to large scale distributed networks (computer and power grid).
In the area of embedded system the lab is carrying out research regarding energy harvesting and energy transference for a networked cyber-physical system, and developing and underwater acoustic tesbed using software-defined radio.
In the area of distributed computer systems, the lab has initiatives in the area of cloud computing, software-defined networking (SDN), and botnet detection. A collaborative proposal, with Nayatel as an industrial partner, for real-time detection and prevention of botnet traffic was completed in Feb, 2014.
The lab's new (current) research thrust is in the cross-disciplinary area of Information Systems and Science of energy ISS4E, where the aim is to apply ICT and Science to resolving the problems of energy system. This thrust is supported by a Microsoft Research (MSR), through project to build a smart-home alternative to the UPS+battery solution used to alleviate the burden of load-shedding in energy-deprived countries. We are officially recognized as partner in a new initative MSR has launched in July 2013 Lab-of-Things (LoT).
Lab Director, Affan A. Syed, has been invited as a speaker at the MSR faculty summit 2014 being held at Redmond, Washington, USA (July 14-16).
