Current research in the Agents Laboratory in Computer Science is structured around the areas of logics and agent programming, including logics for reasoning about agents and multi-agent systems, and the design and implementation of novel agent architectures and agent programming languages. Possible PhD topics lie in these areas and their intersection, e.g. the verification of agent programs and multi-agent systems, and applications of agents.
The school’s programme of research welcomes applications from students who wish to pursue the award of MPhil or PhD by full-time or part-time study. Research students come to the school from within the UK as well as from around the globe, including the EU, the Middle and Far East, Latin America, Africa and South Asia. With this diversity of cultural and disciplinary backgrounds, our students constitute a rich, rewarding and supportive postgraduate research community within The University of Nottingham’s UK, Malaysia and Ningbo China campuses. For a richer global experience, it is possible for joint supervision to be agreed between the UK and one of the University’s international campuses.
