Welcome to CASPER: Computer Architecture for Security and Performance Research group!

News Alert: M.S./Ph.D. admissions 2024

Ever wondered what components make a processor chip? How do these components interact with each other? What can be done to make the processor execute your programs faster? Why do we need caches in the memory hierarchy? Why worry about OS-architecture interaction? Why worry about security when there are already software and OS-level protection mechanisms?

We, the CASPER Research Group, are a group of passionate folks from Department of Computer Science and Engineering of Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, who ponders about similar questions and whose research includes, but is not limited to, methodologies to make the systems more robust against microarchitecture-level attacks and to further improve the performance of modern-day systems!

CASPER is one of the groups in India that does top-quality computer architecture/systems research and publishes at flagship conferences. This ensures India’s presence on the global map of computer architecture/systems research. Thanks to Qualcomm, Google Research, Intel Labs, NXP, and Trust Lab for all the support.

We also have a weekly reading group to discuss interesting computer architecture topics. Click here for more details.

Join us for a monthly online talk series on top-quality computer systems research by Indian students. Click here for more details.
