Call for Workshop Proposals

Fifth International Joint Conference on AUTONOMOUS AGENTS AND MULTIAGENT SYSTEMS (AAMAS 2006)
Future University, Hakodate, Japan, May 8-12, 2006


The AAMAS-2006 Organizing Committee invites proposals for the Workshop Program to be held on May 8-9 immediately prior to the main technical program of the AAMAS conference. The main goal of the AAMAS-2006 workshops is to stimulate and facilitate an active exchange, interaction, and comparison of approaches, methods, and ideas about specific (both theoretical and applicative) topics in the general area of Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems. Workshops should be organized to facilitate informal discussion and active engagement among attendees. Members from all areas of the AAMAS community are invited to submit workshop proposals for review. Workshops on new emerging topics or specific relevant aspects of broader topics are particularly encouraged. Workshops can vary in length, but most will be one full day in duration. Workshop organizers and attendees must register for their workshop and possibly for the main AAMAS conference.
