KMACS is a research laboratory at the Department of Computer and Information Science, Division for Human-Centered Systems (HCS).

The KMACS research lab, currently headed by Prof. Arne Jönsson, has performed multi-disciplinary research in the area of interactive environments for empowerment in health for more than two decades. The studies range from investigations of patient-caregiver interaction, pediatric diabetology, and participatory design, to knowledge acquisition for knowledge-based systems. The group has an interdisciplinary focus based on technical, medical, and behavioral science competencies.

KMACS was previously named MDA. This was a Swedish acronym for "People, Computers, and Work", which ilustrated the relevant forces driving research on computer architectures, designs, and tools. Later, MDA was an orphan arcronym, which does not stand for anything.
