Mission Statement

The Swarm Development Group (SDG) was founded in September 1999 as a private, not-for-profit [501c(3)] organization to support agent-based modeling and simulation. The purposes of the SDG are to:

  1. promote the free interchange of agent based simulations among computing specialists and the public
  2. develop and maintain the integrity and competence of individuals engaged in the practice of agent based simulation.

Supporting Swarm Development Group and Swarm

SDG is funded by donations and its SwarmFest conferences. Currently, SDG has no paid staff and all work on the wiki and Swarm is done via volunteers and occasional contracts.
