      Multi-agent or multiagent?
      This link offers a discussion into the use of hyphens, with some
      special notes on the multi- prefix. It seems that both usages are
      accepted but contemporary usage favors dropping the hyphen, as in:
      multinational, multiuser, and multimedia. But, remember that "If you
      take hyphens seriously, you will surely go mad" (Oxford University
      Press style manual).

      ACM/SIGART Autonomous Agents Research Award
      The selection committee for the SIGART Autonomous Agents Research
      Award is pleased to announce that Dr. Makoto Yokoo of the NTT
      Communication Science Laboratories is the recipient of the 2004
      award. Dr. Yokoo has made significant and sustained contributions to
      the research on autonomous agents and multi agent systems. In
      particular, Dr. Yokoo made seminal contributions to the area of
      distributed constraint satisfaction, which has become a flourishing
      research area in multiagent systems.

      DALT Workshop
      The Second International Workshop on Declarative Agent Languages
      and Technologies aims at foster a discussion forum to further export
      declarative paradigms and techniques into the broader community of
      agent researchers and practitioners. Post-proceedings will be
      published by Springer. Deadline has been extended. Papers due 6 April
      2004. To be held 19-20 July 2004.

      Open Cougaar 2004
      The first Open Cougaar Conference will bring together the open
      source Cougaar community and the larger community of researchers and
      application developers interested in creating practical, 24x7
      large-scale multi-agent systems. It will provide a forum for this
      expanded community to exchange ideas for building industrial-strength
      MAS and to compare and contrast particular agent architectures
      developed for this purpose. OpenCougaar'04 will be run coincident
      with AAMAS 2004 in New York, NY, on 20 July 2004. The conference will
      feature a mix of invited talks, selected presentations, and panel-led
      open discussion forums.

      Americas School on Agents and Multiagent Systems
      The Third Americas School on Agents and Multiagent Systems will
      buildon the success of the first two schools. As before, the School
      willconsist of four days of tutorials primarily intended for
      graduatestudents from around the world, but with a particularfocus on
      students in North and South America. (Undergraduate studentsmay be
      allowed, provided they submit a letter from an advisorrecommending
      them as qualified for this school, and non-studentattendees are also
      welcome to apply). The deadline for applications is 16th April 2004.

      The Sixth European Agent Systems Summer School
      EASSS 2004 will consist of a mixture of introductory and advanced
      courses delivered by internationally leading experts in the agent
      field, and will cover the full range of theoretical and practical
      aspects of agent-basedcomputing. To be held 5 - 9 July 2004 in
      Liverpool, 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.

        German DAI Group
        The non-profit German Special Interest Group (SIG) on Distributed
        Artificial Intelligence is concerned with the representation,
        promotion and coordination of the field of Distributed AI and
        multiagent systems. Being part of the Special Interest Group on
        Artificial Intelligence of the German Informatics Society
        (Gesellschaft für Informatik e.V.), its activities are focused on
        research, teaching and education, and industry.

        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.

        Jobs at University of Southampton
        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
