      Workshop on Multiagent Learning
      The goal of this workshop is to increase awareness and interest in
      adaptive agent research, encourage collaboration between ML experts
      and agent system experts, and give a representative overview of
      current research in the area of adaptive agents. The workshop will
      serve as an inclusive forum for the discussion on ongoing or completed
      work in both theoretical and practical issues. To be held 9-10 July
      2005 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Papers due 20 April 2005.

      Sprawling systems teeter on IT chaos
      The UK government is spearheading a 10 million programme
      aimed at finding ways to avert catastrophic failures in large IT
      networks....there is a real danger that such massive interconnected
      systems will exhibit potentially disastrous "emergent behaviours",
      says David Cliff of Hewlett-Packard's laboratory in Bristol, UK, who
      along with Seth Bullock at the University of Leeds wrote the report
      that prompted the government to address the issue.

      Cruise Control and Traffic Flow
      Physicist L. Craig Davis of the University of Michigan has used
      computer simulations, applying concepts from statistical mechanics, to
      study how the use of adaptive cruise-control technology might affect
      traffic flow. He reports his results in the June Physical Review
      E....Intriguingly, at an average speed of 67 miles per hour, if only
      one in five vehicles used adaptive cruise control, no traffic jams
      would form and traffic would generally flow freely.

      OWL-S Submission Published at W3C
      The OWL Web Ontology Language for Services (OWL-S) has been
      officially submitted to and and accepted by the W3C as a member
      submission. The submission is described as: "This submission contains
      a proposal for a Web Services description language, the Web Ontology
      Language for Services (OWL-S), which builds on Semantic Web technology
      developed at W3C. OWL-S is an OWL-based Web service ontology, which
      supplies a core set of markup language constructs for describing the
      properties and capabilities of Web services in unambiguous,
      computer-interpretable form. OWL-S markup of Web services will
      facilitate fuller automation of Web service tasks, such as Web service
      discovery, execution, composition and interoperation."

      Joint Intentions in Halo 2
      An interview with Chris Butcher, designer of the AI agents in Halo
      2. "The AI posts a joint behavior, 'I notice both of us are looking for
      the same guy. I want to tell you something about him and I want you to
      respond to me.' or, 'We're both looking for the same guy. Let's work
      together to find him so that we can jump out and surprise him
      together....The challenge with AI in games right now is, 'What are the
      boundaries of AI? How do we hide those boundaries from the player? And
      how do we go beyond them?'"

      CCGrid 2005
      CCGrid2005, sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society (final approval
      pending), is designed to bring together international leaders who are
      pioneering researchers, developers, and users of clusters, networks,
      and Grid architectures and applications. The symposium will also serve
      as a forum to present the latest work, and highlight related
      activities from around the world. Papers due 1 December 2004. To be
      held 9-12 May 2005 in Cardiff, UK.

        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.

        Applications are invited for three Senior Research
        Assistant/Research Fellow posts in the Intelligence, Agents,
        Multimedia Group, in the School of Electronics and Computer Science at
        the University of Southampton. The School is the largest of its kind
        in the UK and was awarded the top grade of 5* for both Computer
        Science and Electronics in the 2001 national assessment of research in
