Foundation: 2001

Mission: LARSyS vision is to excel as a research center in the design of complex, socio-technical engineering systems that emerge from massive flows of data and a new generation of autonomous devices and cognitive artifacts, that bridge the gap between the digital and physical worlds

Vision: Our target is to enable new knowledge in network science to undertake core challenges such as distributed optimization and decision-making for large-scale dynamic networks, Big Data processing, and user communities’ representation for pro-social behaviours and actuation upon them
