Internet Computing and Emerging Technologies lab


The Internet Computing and Emerging Technologies lab (ICET-lab) is a research group of at the Interaction Design and Software Engineering division at Chalmers and the University of Gothenburg. We conduct research on software engineering for distributed, Web, and cloud-based systems, particularly related to issues of software performance. The lab is led by Dr. Philipp Leitner, associate professor at Chalmers, and currently entails two faculty, one postdoc, and three PhD students.
