Registration is now open for the Agent Languages and Technologies Summer School - ALTISSIMO, which will take place in Bucharest, this September.
The summer school will provide an overview of the most popular programming languages and frameworks of the moment for multi-agent systems, and identify the pertinent challenges that form new directions of research.
The main topics covered by ALTISSIMO include: Programming Languages for MAS, Design Methodologies and Tools for Agent-based Applications, Agents with Normative Reasoning and Electronic Organisations. Additional information on the summer school's website: http://altissimo.cs.pub.ro.
ALTISSIMO is organised by the Romanian Association for Artificial Intelligence with the support of IFAAMAS.
The Agent Languages and Technologies Summer School aims at raising the awareness concerning the applicability of, and the research paths driven by multi-agent systems programming languages.
The goal of the summer school is to provide an overview of the most popular programming languages and frameworks of the moment for multi-agent systems, and to identify the pertinent issues that form new directions of research.
The school represents a fine occasion to meet people working in the field and to establish contacts that may lead to research collaborations in the future.
The intended audience consists of Bachelor students, Master students, PhD students and young researchers from universities and industry. The aim of the school is to promote knowledge and stimulate research in the field of intelligent agents and multi-agent systems.
In addition to participating to the talks of prominent researchers, the opportunity of exchanging ideas with key members of the agent community within such an event will represent a milestone in the research activity for many postgraduate students and an invaluable personal experience for anyone passionate by AI. The proposed discussions would help the participants get synchronized with those topics the community is presently debating upon.
We address this summer school to smart, determined, dynamic and sociable AI enthusiasts, tech geeks and software engineers who have a technological background and a continuous curiosity towards innovation.
ALTISSIMO 2014 will be hosted by the Faculty of Automatic Control and Computers of the University Politehnica of Bucharest (UPB).
