Second International Joint Agent Workshop & Symposium (iJAWS2011)
in conjunction with
JAWS2011

Venue: Atami Korakuen Hotel


Agent is autonomous software interacting with users and other agents intelligently and a core technology for constructing the next-generation distributed systems. Many researchers have been made a lot of effort to study 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, JSAI SIG knowledge base systems, and IEEE Computer Society Japan Chapter co-sponsor.

iJAWS2011 has established by JAWS program committee from 2010 aiming at encouragement for international students and Japanese PhD students to write and present papers in English. iJAWS provides students with an opportunity to introduce and discuss their research issues in English. Researchers and developers who are engaged in agent technologies and related technologies, and are interested in its application are very welcome to iJAWS2011. We certainly hope that the discussion in iJAWS2011 will be very fruitful.

iJAWS2011 participants will be able to participate in JAWS2011 which consists of general research sessions, invited speaker sessions, poster session, special issue session, mentoring program, student session and so on.
