Autonomous agents are software and robotic entities that are capable of independent action in open, unpredictable environments. Agents are also one of the most important and exciting areas of research and development in computer science today. Agents are currently being applied in domains as diverse as computer games and interactive cinema, information retrieval and filtering, user interface design, electronic commerce, autonomous vehicles and spacecraft, and industrial process control. The aim of the Agents 2001 conference is to bring together researchers and developers from industry and academia to report on the latest scientific and technical advances, discuss and debate the major issues, and showcase the latest systems. Agents 2001 will build on the enormous success of its predecessors.
The conference welcomes submissions of original, high quality papers concerning autonomous agents in a variety of embodiments and playing a variety of roles in their environments. The Agents 2001 conference, like its predecessors, will focus primarily on systems that have been or are being implemented; theory papers are welcome provided that they clearly relate to such systems, for example by helping us to predict their behavior, explain, or understand them. The submission of pure, abstract theory papers is not encouraged: there are other, more appropriate forums for such work. Papers that address isolated agent capabilities (such as planning or learning) are similarly discouraged, unless they are placed in the overall context of autonomous agents. Evaluation of agents or multi-agent systems will be considered a desireable component of each submission.

In addition to technical presentations of papers, the conference will include internationally known invited speakers, software and robotic agent demonstrations, and an exhibits session. More generally, the conference will strive towards an informal atmosphere with plenty of time for presentations, questions, and discussions. Accepted papers and posters will be formally published in a Conference Proceedings. A limited number of student scholarships will be available. The conference will also include a workshop and tutorial programme, details of which will appear soon.
