The Software Architecture Research Group is a collaborative research team in the Department of Computer Science at the University of Southern California. The group is headed by Dr. Nenad Medvidovic, an Associate Professor in the CS Department at USC, a faculty member of the USC Center for Systems and Software Engineering (CSSE), and a faculty associate of the Institute for Software Research (ISR) at the University of California, Irvine. The group focuses on cutting edge research in architectural modeling and analysis, component-based development, architecture-based development for distributed, heterogeneous, and resource constraint devices, product line architectures, runtime infrastructure, and middleware technology.
