Autonomous agents and multiagent systems are computational systems in which several (semi-)autonomous agents interact each other or work together to perform some set of tasks or satisfy some set of goals. These systems may involve computational agents that are homogeneous or heterogeneous, they may involve activities on the part of agents having common goals or distinct goals, and they may involve participation on the part of humans and intelligent agents.

PRIMA is Pacific Rim conference related to autonomous agents and multiagent systems. Though we already have several workshops/conferences in Pacific Rim countries, such as MACC (Multiagent Systems and Cooperative Computation) in Japan from 1991, and Australian Workshop on Distributed Artificial Intelligence from 1995, there is less interaction so far among the countries compared to Europe and Americas.


The aim of this conference is to encourage activities in this field, and to bring together Pacific Rim researchers with agents and multiagent issues. Unlike usual conferences, this conference will mainly discuss and explore scientific and practical problems as raised by the participants. Participation is thus by invitation only and is limited to professionals who have made significant contributions to the topics of the conference. The contributions may include technical presentations, progress reports and so on. In order to activate and unite agent research communities in Pacific Rim countries, the conference should also include discussions for future collaboration: how the next meeting should be organized.

 

 

PRIMA is the leading scientific conference for research on intelligent agent systems and multi-agent systems, attracting high quality, state-of-the-art research from all over the world. The conference endeavors to bring together researchers, developers, and academic and industry leaders, active and interested in agents and multi-agent systems, their practices and related areas. The conference is specifically focused on becoming the premier forum for prototype and deployed agent systems. The conference offers an exceptional opportunity for presentation of original work, technological advances, practical problems and concerns of the research community.

PRIMA2009 will build on the success of its predecessor workshops and conferences held in Hanoi, Bangkok, Guilin, Kuala Lumpur, Auckland, Seoul, Tokyo, Taipei, Melbourne, Kyoto, and Singapore. Since 2007, due to the need for an additional high-quality forum for international researchers and practitioners to meet and share their work, the meeting has been expanded from a workshop to a full-fledged conference.

Agent computing and technology is an exciting, emerging paradigm expected to play a key role in many society-changing practices from disaster response to manufacturing to agriculture. Agent and multi-agent researchers are focused on building working systems that bring together a broad range of technical areas from market theory to software engineering to user interfaces. Agent systems are expected to operate in real-world environments, with all the challenges complex environments present. PRIMA particularly encourages reports on development of prototype and deployed agent and multiagent systems and experiments that demonstrate the capability of agents to handle real-world challenges.

Papers addressing methodological or theoretical aspects or particular aspects of agent development are also encouraged. A broad range of topics are of interest but all papers should clearly identify how the contribution brings the promise of practical multi-agent systems closer and identify their scientific and/or technical contributions to the PRIMA community.

The conference will be located in Nagoya, at the center of Japan (West of Tokyo, 2 hours, E of Osaka, 1.5 hours, and E of Kyoto 1 hours by express train). Nagoya has a castle originally built by the first Tokugawa shogun, as well as one of Japan's most important Shinto shrines, Atsuta shrine. The conference site, Nagoya Congress Center, is one of the most sophisticated and beautiful congress sites in Japan.
