The Communication Systems Research Group CSG at the Computer Science Department (Institut für Informatik, IFI) of the University of Zurich, UZH, Switzerland was founded in September 2004.

CSG's key mission is to establish excellent research in communications, addressing communication mechanisms for charging, accounting, mobility, security, while considering Telecommunication economics, network management, and highly-decentralized systems as major pillars of today's communications in the Internet. Secondly, the CSG is committed to provide a full and up-to-date teaching curriculum on networks and communications for undergraduate and graduate students, partly in conjunction with other groups at IFI.


The research group includes about a dozen people (Ph.D. Students, Senior Researchers, and PostDocs) and works in a number of highly relevant communication research areas, such as charging and accounting for services and applications, cloud supporting services, economic network management, underlay-to-overlay cooperation, peer-to-peer systems, and monitoring.
