Swarm Development Group
This wiki site is maintained by the Swarm Development Group (SDG). This area of the wiki serves as SDG's home page.
SDG is currently an all-volunteer organization. It takes a significant effort to maintain the wiki, maintain and improve Swarm, and provide user support. Please volunteer a little of your time to help...contact us via email or talk to us at SwarmFest.
See the menu at the right for links to information on becoming and SDG member, SDG's charter and corporate documents, a list of the members and officers of SDG's board of directors, and contact information.
The Swarm Development Group (SDG) was founded in September 1999 as a private, not-for-profit [501c(3)] organization to support the development of the Swarm Simulation System (Swarm) and the interests of the group members. The purposes of the SDG are to:
- advance the state-of-the-art in multi agent based simulation through the continued advancement of the Swarm Simulation System and support of the Swarm user community
- promote the free interchange of multi agent based simulations among computing specialists and the public
- 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 member contributions 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. If you use this wiki, and especially if you use Swarm, you should join SDG and contribute time or funding. Put an SDG membership in your project budget and see our membership page for how to contribute it. Membership list
