Proceedings of the First International Conference on Multiagent Systems
June 12-14, 1995, San Francisco
The first international conference on multiagent systems is organized as a joint effort of the North American Distributed Artificial Intelligence community, the Japanese Multiagent and Cooperative Computing community, and the European Modeling Autonomous Agents in a Multiagent World community, with support from AAAI and sanctioned by ECCAI. The Proceedings cover a broad spectrum of perspectives including artificial life, communications issues, and negotiation strategies.
Topics cover: • Agent Architectures • Artificial Life (from a multiagent perspective) • Believable Agents • Cooperation, Coordination, and Conflict • Communcation Issues • Conceptual and Theoretical Foundations of Multiagent Systems • Development and Engineering Methodologies • Distributed Artificial Intelligence • Distributed Consensus and Algorithms for Multiagent Interaction • Distributed Search • Evaluation of Multiagent Systems • Integrated Testbeds and Development Environments • Intelligent Agents in Enterprise Integration Systems and Similar Types of Applications • Learning and Adaptation in Multiagent Systems • Multiagent Cooperative Reasoning from Distributed Heterogeneous Databases • Multiagent Planning and Planning for Multiagent Worlds • Negotiation Strategies (in both competitive and cooperative situations) • Organization, Organizational Knowledge, and Organization Self-Design • Practical Applications of Multiagent Systems (enterprises, robotics, sensing, manufacturing) • Resource Allocation in Multiagent Systems • Social Structures and their Signfiicance in Multiagent Systems • User Interface Issues for Multiagent Systems.
