The Research Laboratory of Modeling and Software Technologies is part of the Institute of Mathematics and Computer Science, University of Latvia (IMCS LU).

The Laboratory was founded in 1970 by Prof. Jānis Bārzdiņš.

Our most famous product is GRADE (Graphical Reengineering Analysis and Design Environment), developed since 1990.

Now GRADE is followed by GRAF (Graphical Tool Building Framework), OWLGrEd (Editor for Compact UML-style OWL Graphic Notation), ViziQuer (Structured Semantic Data Search Tool), GradeTwo and MOLA (Model Transformation Language) projects.

The staff includes 36 persons (19 PhDs, 5 doctoral students, 2 graduate students, 1 undergraduate students).

Apart from research, the Laboratory has always been involved in teaching at the Faculty of Computing (page in Latvian), University of Latvia.
