5th International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems
Hakodate, Japan, 08/05/2006–12/05/2006

AAMAS is the premier scientific conference for research in autonomous agents and multi-agent systems. The AAMAS conference series was initiated in 2002 as a merger of three highly respected individual conferences: the International Conference on Autonomous Agents (AGENTS), the International Workshop on Agent Theories, Architectures, and Languages (ATAL), and the International Conference on Multi-Agent Systems (ICMAS). The aim of the joint conference is to provide a single, high-profile, internationally respected archival forum for scientific research in the theory and practice of autonomous agents and multi-agent systems. (See The AAMAS conference for more information.) AAMAS-06 is the fifth conference in the AAMAS series, following enormously successful previous conferences at Bologna, Italy (2002), Melbourne, Australia (2003), New York City, USA (2004), and Utrecht, the Netherlands (2005). AAMAS-06 will be held at the Future University-Hakodate, Japan. Hakodate is a beautiful city located at the southern end of Japan's northern island, Hokkaido.
In addition to conventional conference papers, AAMAS-05 also welcomes the submission of papers that focus on implemented systems, software, or robot prototypes. These papers require a demonstration of the prototype at the conference and should include a detailed project or system description specifying the hardware and software features and requirements.
