DALT 2003

1st International Workshop on Declarative Agent Languages and Technologies
Melbourne, Australia, 15/07/2003. Hosted by AAMAS 2003.
Agent metaphors and technologies are ever more adopted to harness and govern the complexity of today’s systems. As a consequence, the growing complexity of agent systems calls for models and technologies that promote system predictability, and enable feature discovery and verification.

Formal methods and declarative technologies have recently witnessed a growing interest as a vehicle to address such issues.

DALT aims at fostering a discussion forum to export, on the one hand, such techniques into the broader community of agent researchers and practitioners and, on the other hand, to bring in the issues of real-world, complex, and possibly large-scale agent system design in the perspective of formal methods and declarative technologies.
