      DIMACS: Computation and the Socio-Economic Sciences
      "The topic of game theory and mechanism design has involved many
      leading computer scientists with economists and, as a result, for the
      first time many computer scientists are taking serious note of both
      the problems and the methods of economics. Analysis of the analogies
      between the growth of social networks and the development of the
      Internet have led to important insights about both areas and serious
      interactions between computer scientists and sociologists. Problems of
      metasearch have engaged computer scientists with political scientists
      and economists working on voting and social choice. We believe that
      the time is ripe to build on these early and exciting
      connections."They will be holding workshops, seminars, and tutorials
      during 2004-2006.

      CybelePro Micro Edition
      Intelligent Automation announces the release of Cybele-ME for PDA
      running Linux and Windows-CE. Cybele-ME is an optimized version of
      CybelePro for J2ME CDC environment. Cybele-ME is available with
      CybelePro v1.1. Users can now develop a Cybele-based agent application
      using only one set of APIs, which could run on a PDA or a
      workstation. Distributed agents seamlessly interact with each other
      independent of the platform.

      Trust Competition Testbed
      Trust as a form of social control in multi-agent systems is a
      growing field of research. A diverse collection of trust modeling
      representations and algorithms has been developed in recent years;
      however, a unified research direction has yet to be established. We
      invite discussion of a Competition Testbed for agent trust
      technologies, by which to challenge researchers to solve the most
      prominent problems in the field. The development of a Competition
      Testbed can foster a cohesive scoping of trust research problems, as
      well as metrics by which to measure the success of technologies in
      reaching those objectives.

      FLAIRS 2005 - Intelligent Agent Systems Track
      The purpose of this track is to provide a forum for academics and
      practitioners to identify and explore the issues, opportunities, and

        Colored Trails Project
        Colored Trails (CT) is a test-bed for investigating the types of
        decision-making that arise in task settings where the key interactions
        are among goals (of individuals or of groups), tasks required to
        accomplish those goals, and resources. The CT architecture allows
        games to be played by groups comprising people, computer agents, or
        heterogeneous mixes of people and computers. The purpose of the CT
        framework is to enable to design, learn and evaluate players'
        decision-making behavior as well as group dynamics in settings of
        varying complexity.

        Game Theory and Poker
        A Carnegie Mellon University computer scientist has demonstrated
        that you don't necessarily need to know much about poker to create
        a computer program that can play a winning hand of Texas
        Hold'Em. A knowledge of game theory, not the specialized expertise
        of a human poker player, is at the heart of the poker robot called GS1
        developed by Tuomas Sandholm, director of Carnegie Mellon's
        Agent-Mediated Electronic Marketplaces Lab, and graduate student
        Andrew Gilpin.
