The Fifth International Conference on Autonomus Agents (AGETS'01)
|Event Date/Time: May 28, 2001||End Date/Time: Jun 01, 2001|
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.
