The Large Ultraviolet, Optical, and Infrared Surveyor (LUVOIR) is one of the future mission concepts identified in the NASA Astrophysics Roadmap of 2014. NASA is currently funding studies of four such missions with the intent of identifying the science goals and concomitant technical requirements to make sure that the mission concept are sufficiently mature that they could be recommended as priorities by the 2020 NRC decadal survey. I will describe the progress that has been made by the LUVOIR Science and Technology Definition Team in developing the LUVOIR concept.
