We also would like to thank AAMAS and our sponsors over the years.
He serves as a program committee member in conferences such as AAAI and AAMAS, and as a reviewer in journals such as Artificial Intelligence and JAAMAS.
Drawing on our experiences as general and program cochairs of the 2011 AAMAS conference, our request to the authors selected for this special issue was to include material motivating the topic; to give an overview of research in the subfield with pointers to contemporary review articles where feasible; to discuss some of the authors' own contributions to the topic; and to offer an account of challenges or future directions.
The opening article in this collection, An Overview of Recent Application Trends at the AAMAS Conference: Security, Sustainability, and Safety by Manish Jain, Bo An, and Milind Tambe, profiles work that ties agent systems research into practical applications.
As AAMAS itself breaks historic ground in the music industry throughout Asia by offering an overdue peer community, our site makes history by providing unparalleled value and connectivity to its member base," said Edmund Ooi, Chief Creative Officer of MusicDNA and co-founder of the Academy.
With Quincy Jones as Chairman of its Board of Governors, AAMAS is currently comprised of approximately 11,000 recording artists, musicians, composers, producers, label execs, technicians, academics and music students--holds claim to the title as Asia's "first-ever professional peer driven Academy established to honor and award excellence in the arts and sciences of music, and to foster collaboration between all sectors of the music industry across Asia and the world.
Some 20 years ago, artificial intelligence researchers began to recognize that thinking about agents as such is useful, and this ultimately lead to the birth of the AAMAS community.
To support my argument, I report from the trenches of ongoing robotics work within the AAMAS community, highlighting success stories in which robotics research benefited from AAMAS research, and vice versa.
Four classifications of membership to AAMAS are open to all those affiliated with the music industry: voting, professional, student and honorary.
AAMAS will create a platform for regional, as well as, global industry players to network and explore business opportunities in a collaborative environment with strong connectivity to the region.
The conference itself was five days in total, consisting of a tutorial program, a workshop program, the main conference technical track, a reviewed poster track, a reviewed industry paper track, a reviewed demonstration track, sponsor demonstration sessions, invited talks, an exhibition with exhibits from technology providers and publishers, a doctoral mentoring program, and the second annual AAMAS women's luncheon, which provided women with the opportunity to discuss their experiences, problems, and successes in an informal setting.
The AAMAS 2005 opening reception was held at the Academiegebouw, the academic center of the university, located in a historic building next to the Dom tower.
