Research line System and Network Engineering; secure and trust-able internet based systems for data processing.
Prof. Cees de Laat chairs the System and Network Engineering (SNE) laboratory at the Faculty of Science at University of Amsterdam. The SNE lab conducts research on leading-edge computer systems of all scales, ranging from global-scale systems and networks to embedded devices. Across these multiple scales our particular interest is on extra-functional properties of systems, such as performance, programmability, productivity, security, trust, sustainability and, last but not least, the societal impact of emerging systems-related technologies. His own work focusses on the developments of High Performance Networks and Secure Trusted Distributed Data Processing Systems.
Prof. de Laat serves on the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory Policy Board for matters regarding ESnet, is co-founder of the Global Lambda Integrated Facility (GLIF), founder of GRIDforum.nl and founding member of CineGrid.org. His group was/is part of a.o. EU projects GN4-2, SWITCH, CYCLONE, ENVRIplus and ENVRI, Geysers, NOVI, NEXTGRID, EGEE, and national projects SARNET, COMMIT, GIGAport and VL-e. He is a member of the Advisory Board Internet Society Netherlands and Scientific technical advisory board of SURF Netherlands. See: http://delaat.net/.
