Welcome to SAINT/S3EL Research Groups Website

The Service-Oriented Software & Systems Engineering Laboratory (S3EL), directed by UCSD CSE Professor Ingolf Krueger, researches innovative techniques for software and systems engineering using a service-oriented approach. Prof. Krueger also leads the software and systems architecture and integration team (SAINT) at Calit2, which provides a rich set of software engineering services to large-scale systems of systems integration projects within Calit2.
