      EUMAS 2004
      The Second European Workshop on Multi-Agent Systems aims to
      encourage and support activity in the research and development of
      multi-agent systems, in academic and industrial European efforts. It
      is to be held 16-17 December 2004 in Barcelona. Papers due 1 October

      Multiagent Systems for Manufacturing Control
      book by Stefan Bussmann, Nicolas R. Jennings, Michael Wooldridge,
      2004. This book presents a novel approach to the design of manufacturing
      control systems, based around the idea of agents, semi-autonomous
      decision makers that cooperate to process goods and meet orders. This
      new methodology is DACS-- Designing Agent-based Control
      Systems. Developed at DaimlerChrysler's research labs in Berlin, DACS
      is the first methodology specifically produced for the design of
      agent-based control systems. See also the publisher's page.

      International Workshop on Massively Multi-Agent Systems
      The aim of this workshop is to encourage existing activity in this
      field, and to bring together computer science, information science,
      and social science participants concerned with massively multiagent
      systems and applications. The workshop will consist of invited talks,
      oral and poster presentations, and panels. Participation in the
      workshop is by invitation only, and is limited to around 40
      people. Abstracts due 15 August 2004, papers due 1 September 2004. To
      be held 10-11 December 2004 in Kyoto.

      Next FIPA Meeting
      The 32nd meeting of the FIPA standards group will be held 14-16
      July 2004 in Washington, DC and will be hosted by Intelligent
      Automation, Inc (IAI). Registration for the meeting is still open.

      Intelligent Automation announces the release of CybelePro - a
      robust and efficient infrastructure for the rapid development and
      deployment of Java-based large-scale agent applications. Features
      include event-driven agents, publish-subscribe based communications,
      discrete and continuous clock support, browser-based agent management,
      directory service, performance driven event sorting and ordering
      capabilities, PDA support and compliance with FIPA standards.

      Open Cougaar 2004
      The first OpenCougaar Conference will bring together the open
      sourceCougaar community and the larger community ofresearchers and
      application developers interested in creating practical,24x7
      large-scale multi-agent systems. It is to be held 20 July 2004,
      colocated with AAMAS 2004.

      Agent-Oriented Information Systems
      This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-proceedings of
      the5th International Bi-Conference Workshop on Agent-Oriented
      InformationSystems, held in Melbourne, Australia in July 2003 at AAMAS
      2003 andin Chicago, IL, USA in October 2003 at ER 2003.

      SYNASC 2004
      Workshop on Agents for Complex Systems is to be held 26-30
      September 2004 in Timisoara, Romania. Papers due 15 July 2004.

      AAMAS 2005
      The Fourth International Joint Conference on Autonomous Agents and
      Multi-Agent Systems is to be held 25-29 July 2005 in Utrecht University,
      The Netherlands. Papers due 6 December 2004.

      This is a free educational program that uses teleo-reactive
      programming to expose the fundamental ideas involved in the creation
      of autonomous agents to high school and college students. This
      software package consists of two modules: a code generating graphical
      user interface that guides the user through the creation of behaviors
      and a robot soccer simulation environment where these programs are
      executed and tested.

      Hyderabad Multi-agent Systems School
      In this Agent School, top researchers in multi-agent systems and
      applications will give tutorials on their areas of expertise starting
      from basic concepts to open research problems. The tutorials are
      structured such that each researcher can give tutorials on two days
      with ample time left for discussions and participant/researcher
      interaction. Projects/Assignments and exercises are scheduled in the
      evenings for the participants to further grasp the material. To be
      held 4-12 August 2004 in Gachibowli, Hyderabad, India.

      Ant Colony Optimization
      book by Marco Dorigo and Thomas Stutzle, 2004. MIT Press. The book
      first describes the translation of observed ant behavior into working
      optimization algorithms. The ant colony metaheuristic is then
      introduced and viewed in the general context of combinatorial
      optimization. This is followed by a detailed description and guide to
      all major ACO algorithms and a report on current theoretical
      findings. The book surveys ACO applications now in use, including
      routing, assignment, scheduling, subset, machine learning, and
      bioinformatics problems.

        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
        UK universities.
