2009 ACM SIGART Autonomous Agents Research Award


Call For Nominations --

2009 ACM SIGART Autonomous Agents Research Award

ACM SIGART, in collaboration with the International Conference on Autonomous
Agents, has instituted an annual award for excellence in research in the area
of autonomous agents. Award winners will receive an honorarium and will be
invited to give a talk at the annual Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems
(AAMAS) Conference, which in 2009 will be held in Budapest, Hungary, in May.

This award is specifically intended to recognize researchers whose current
research is influencing the field of autonomous agents and multi-agent systems.
Candidates will be evaluated based on the quality, significance, and impact of
their research contributions. It is usually expected that at least some of
these contributions should have been reported at one or more Autonomous Agents
or AAMAS conferences, although this is not an absolute requirement. Previous
winners of the SIGART Autonomous Research Award were Yoav Shoham (2008), Sarit
Kraus (2007). Michael Wooldridge (2006), Milind Tambe (2005), Makoto Yokoo
(2004), Nick Jennings (2003), Katia Sycara (2002), and Tuomas Sandholm (2001).

The award committee is now seeking nominations for the 2009 award.

*** Nominations should be submitted by email to the Awards Committee Chair,
Sarit Kraus (sarit@cs.biu.ac.il)

The nomination should specify:

-- Name of person being nominated;

-- Name and contact information for the person making the nomination;

-- A statement describing why the nominee should be considered for the
  award.

Nominations must be made no later than: December 16, 2008.
