Welcome to UTD MAVS

The Multi-Agent & Visualization Systems Lab at the University of Texas at Dallas.

Introduction

Our mis­sion is to apply soft­ware engi­neer­ing best prac­tices to the devel­op­ment of large-scale mul­ti-dis­ci­pli­nary soft­ware projects on chal­leng­ing research top­ics appeal­ing to both acad­e­mia and indus­try. As thought­ful con­trib­u­tors to the field of soft­ware engi­neer­ing, our lab is cur­rent­ly focused on apply­ing the agent par­a­digm to the build­ing of large scale, decen­tral­ized, and adap­tive sys­tems. With the help of state-of-the-art tools, we are pro­vid­ing fresh per­spec­tives on prob­lem mod­el­ing and solu­tions. We hope that our efforts will lead the field in adopt­ing the agent par­a­digm to address a new class of prob­lems that reflect the evolv­ing com­put­ing needs of our soci­ety.
