The IBM Austin Research Laboratory (ARL) was established in 1995 and is one of twelve IBM Research laboratories worldwide. Research in the lab primarily focuses on high-speed microprocessor design, hardware design and simulation, software-defined networking, analytics, and mobility. In addition, projects in diverse areas, such as flood prediction[1] and cancer therapy,[2] have been developed in the lab.

Location[edit]

ARL is located at 11501 Burnet Road in Austin, Texas, and is housed on the 6th floor of building 904 on the IBM campus. It's GPS coordinates are: 30.397621, -97.719604.
