Research Laboratory for Sustainable Systems (RLSS) is an NSF-sponsored research lab.

Due to the increasing energy consumption by computer systems and the thermal threat to computer systems, environmentally sustainable computing has received a significant attention in industry and research. The goal of sustainable computing is to efficiently and effectively manage system resource to render the computing sustaiable with minimal impact on the environment. The underlying systems are pretty diverse, ranging from embedded systems to high-performance chip-multiprocessors to server clusters in data centers. Many applications on these systems demand timing requirements of their applications. One of our research goals is to study these timing-sensitive applicaitons on the diverse sustainable computing platforms.

On the other hand, many systems are highly vulnerable to faults or attacks, which can compromise the system performance, corrupt important data, or expose private information. The other major research goal to design approaches to render systems more sustainable, secure and trustworthy.
