University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory, Systems Research Group has some 40 members and is divided into a number of subgroups. Networks and Operating Systems group (NetOS), which is involved in this proposal, undertakes teaching and research into topics including computer architecture, operating systems design, network monitoring and protocol design, practical distributed systems and mobile communications. The group works closely with other groups in the Computer Laboratory and University, as well as industrial partners such as Microsoft Research. The University of Cambridge has an outstanding track record for start-ups and spinouts, as well as having attracted many large companies (example Microsoft, ARM, Intel, Nokia, Broadcom) to base some of their main laboratories and actual design teams in the area. The group has developed recently a strong expertise in the area of Information Centric Networking, Mobile Opportunistic Networking and Satellite Networking. http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/research/srg/netos http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/research/srg/netos
