Cluster management system design for big data infrastructures

By Shekhar Gupta, promotor Cees Witteveen, December 14, 2016 at 12:30, location Aula TU Delft  In recent years,we have seen amajor shift in computing systems: data volumes are growing very fast, but hardware capabilities to store, process, and transfer the massive data are not speeding up at the same rate. Today, data are generated from a...more


Participation and Interaction in Projects: A Game-Theoretic Analysis

By Gleb Polevoy, promotor Cees Witteveen and Catholijn Jonker, December 6, 2016 at 12:30, location Aula TU Delft Much of what agents (people, robots, etc.) do is dividing effort between severalactivities. In order to facilitate efficient divisions, we study contributionsto such activities and advise on stable divisions that result in high...more

For this purpose, several frameworks are available in literature. Chapter 1 presents a concise literature survey that provides a new overview of their interrelation. In the...more


Coordinated Multi-Agent Planning and Scheduling

By Renze Steenhuisen, promotor Cees Witteveen, date Friday 17-5-2013 at 15:00, location Aula TU Delft. Abstract: This dissertation studies coordination problems that arise when autonomous agents need to construct a joint plan or a joint schedule for achieving a joint goal. These problems arise when a set of agents each with its own capabilities...more
