Message

Our lab is studying how to develop software systems, especially, with visual and interactive properties. Although such systems are becoming increasingly important and widespread, the method of their development has remained unchanged for over twenty years; people have been using object-oriented imperative programming languages (e.g. C++, Objective-C, and Java) for this purpose. We are tackling this situation by adopting mathematical approaches such as constraint programming. We welcome your participation in our activities.
