4th Workshop on Formal Models of Agents
Certosa di Pontignano, SI, Italy, 15/01/1997–17/01/1997

The goal of this workshop is to bring together a limited, interdisciplinary group for an in-depth discussion on formal models of agents.  Agent is a concept covering software artifacts and human beings, individuals and societies.  This concept is emerging in disciplines as diverse as organisation theory, artificial intelligence, logic, data bases, philosophy, requirements engineering.
These models try to describe, predict and analyse the internal "facets" of agents (beliefs, goals, etc.) as well as their external individual and collective behaviour.

The workshop will have a limited attendance, no parallel sessions, large slots for discussion.

topics of interest

The general theme is formal models of agent, integrating several “facets” including e.g.:
•  belief  •  knowledge  •  abilities  •  intentions  •  goal  •  commitments  •  communication  •  behaviour  •  choice  •  freedom
