Main Topics

Track welcomes submissions of original high-quality papers. The technical issues to be addressed include, but not limited to:

  • Applications:

    • Data and knowledge intensive domains (e.g., large databases, Internet, digital libraries, financial engineering, business information systems, CSCW)

    • Interaction with software/interface agents (e.g., E-commerce, personal assistant, information filter, tutor)

    • Computational intelligence (e.g., pattern analysis and recognition, imaging, optimization, resource allocation, constraint satisfaction, planning)

    • Physically embodied systems (e.g., autonomous robots)

    • Very-large, complex, integrated intelligent systems

  • Computational Architecture and Infrastructure:

    • Computational architectures, virtual machines, tools and standards

    • Ontology models, multimodal systems and interfaces

    • Agent-level and multiagent-level infrastructure

    • Communication languages and protocols

    • Heterogeneity and interoperability

    • Scalability

  • Learning and Adaptation:

    • Uncertainty management in multiagent systems

    • Integrated exploration and exploitation

    • Neural networks, Artificial life, Evolutionary computation

    • Behavioral selection, behavioral self-organization, emergent behavior

    • Coordinating perception, thought, and action

    • Evolution and learning in dynamic environments

    • Adaptation and self-adaptation
