JAWS: Joint Agent Workshops & Symposium

Japanese MAS Research Community

"Agent" is an autonomous software achieving intelligent interaction with humans, information systems and other agents, and a core technology for constructing next-generation distributed systems. Many researchers have been made a lot of effort to study agent technologies all over the world. Nowadays, human societies is closely bound up with advanced information systems. Thus, the importance of researches on information technologies supporting humans in diverse situations have been increased as the complexity of human societies has gone up.


How to cope with high-integration of social functions in urban areas, complex social mechanisms, and diverse massive risks including natural disasters to preserve humans daily life? Researches on Multi-Agent Systems have the potential to provide solutions for significant issues based on diverse approaches (e.g., mechanism design, human-agent interaction, and social simulations, etc...).


The aim of the workshop and symposium is to bring together researchers who can contribute to a better understanding of agent technologies. JAWS is an inter-organizational event that JSSST SIG multi-agent and cooperative computation, IEICE SIG artificial intelligence, IPSJ SIG intelligence and complex systems, and JSAI SIG knowledge base systems co-sponsor.
