About Franziska Klügl

Franziska Klügl is Professor in Information Technology. Her main research interests are related to languages, processes and tools for agent-based simulation.

Despite of their increasing distribution, agent-based simulation models still suffer from lacking formal basis, clear development processes and only limited ways to connect simulation to empirical data for validation. Her vision is to develop the ideas of agent-based simulation further so that domain experts without formal training in computer science can produce and use reliable, valid models. This involves research in many areas such as software engineering for simulation, machine learning, human-agent interaction, distributed systems...

She teaches Artificial Intelligence (HT 2/2016), Java for User Interfaces and Networking (HT 2/2016) in the Dataingenjör-Program and will teach Communication Systems in our new Civilingenjör-education. in 2017 there will be hopefully another opportunity to teach Multiagent Systems in our master program "Intelligent Systems and Robotics". Previously she also taught Agent-based Simulation.

News:

On 10th of July, the 9th Workshop on Agents in Traffic and Transportation 2016 (ATT2016) took place in New York as part of IJCAI . The ATT2016 Proceedings are now published via CEUR and we started to prepare for a special issue.

In Dec 2015, we received the best paper award of EUMAS 2015 for the contribution: J. Nilsson and F. Klügl: Human-in-the-Loop Simulation for a Virtual Classroom". EUMAS 2015 is the 13th European Conference on Multi-Agent Systems and was held 17/18 Dec 2015 in Athens.
