Routing Group, CS, Tsinghua Univ.

About Our Lab.

We are the routing group in the Department of Computer Science and Technology, also in the Institute for Network Science and Cyberspace at Tsinghua University. We work broadly in the intersection between networking, system, security, and machine learning, with a special focus on the following topics recently:
  • Programmable network: NetSeer (SIGCOMM'20), Newton (CoNEXT'20), Martini (ICNP'20), TurboNet (ICNP'20), HyperTester (CoNEXT'19)
  • Network security: BPHijack (NDSS'20), Poseidon (NDSS'20), Crosspath (USENIX Security'19)
  • Data-driven network: Metis (SIGCOMM'20), MRTE (ICNP'20), PiTree (MM'19)
  • Router analysis: FlowTableSpace (INFOCOM'19), FISE (INFOCOM'14)
  • Green routing: GreenNRE (INFOCOM'16), Hop-by-hop GIR (ICNP'13)
  • Transport protocol: XMP (CoNEXT'13), wVegas (ICNP'12)


We are constantly looking for highly motivated students (undergrad and graduate) who are interested in building pioneering networked systems. Please email email_xmw.png if you are interested.
