previous Autonomous Agents conferences.  The recipient of the award will receive a monetary prize 
and a certificate, and will be invited to present a plenary talk at the AAMAS 2013 conference in 
St Paul, MN, see:

HOW TO NOMINATE

Anybody can make a nomination. Nominations should be made by email to the chair of the award 
committee, Michael Wooldridge (mjw@cs.ox.ac.uk), and should consist of a short (< 1 page) 
statement that clearly describes the research contributions that the individual has made that 
merit the award, and how these contributions have influenced the field.

NOTE: a candidate can only be considered for the award if they are explicitly nominated. If you
