Working at the University of Guadalajara, he holds a Full Professor-Researcher position at the Department of Information Systems in the CUCEA Campus. His research works are focused in distributed systems strategies to improve the support for large communities interacting on virtual reality environments ans Serious Games.
Such strategies include computer mobile agents, optimization of algorithms for distributed and concurrency support and large scale simulations. As main projects, Victor M. Larios have worked in the development of Virtual Laboratories for educational activities, collaborative systems for interactive support and data visualization. Current works are focused in the development of Virtual Reality interfaces for collaborative Serious Games and large scale simulations. As other activities at the University of Guadalajara, he is the director od the Research Center in Systems & Information Management (CISGI).
He is also, the Coordinator of the PhD in Information Technologies at the PostGraduate School and the Information Systems Department, University of Guadalajara. The PhD program is labeled as a quality program in Mexico by the PNPC CONACYT accreditation agency. Eventually, Dr. Victor M. Larios participates in a IT council at the CUCEA UdeG Campus (Related to a Business School with 15,000.00 Students) to give the guidelines to support and innovate the Campus IT services. Victor M. Larios is also an IEEE valued member for 17 years and an ACM member for 11 years.
