The International Conference on Practical Applications of Agents and Multiagent Systems (PAAMS´09) will provide a unique opportunity to bring multi-disciplinary experts and practitioners together to exchange their experience in all aspects of Agents and Multi-Agent Systems, especially those concerned with applications. It builds upon the success of previous editions of IWPAAMS workshops, by acquiring now a more international character.
This International Conference intends to bring together researchers and developers from industry and academic world to report on the latest scientific and technical advances on the application of multi-agent systems, discuss and debate the major issues, and showcase the latest systems using agent based technology. It will promote a fore for discussion on how agent-based techniques, methods, and tools help system designers to accomplish the mapping between available agent technology and application needs. Other stakeholders should be rewarded with a better understanding of the potential and challenges of the agent-oriented approach.
Areas of interest include (but are not limited to):
· Multi-Agent Systems (MAS) Applications: commerce, health care, industry, internet, etc.
· Agent and MAS architectures
