CF Nominations: 2009 IFAAMAS Award for Influential Papers in Agents and Multiagent Systems
*** Call for Nominations *** 2009 IFAAMAS Award for Influential Papers in Agents and Multiagent Systems The International Foundation for Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems has established an award to recognize publications that have made influential and long-lasting contributions to the field. Candidates for this award are papers that have proved a key result, led to the development of a new subfield, demonstrated a significant new application or system, or simply presented a new way of thinking about a topic that has proved influential. A list of previous winners of this award is appended below. This award is presented annually at the AAMAS Conference, in this case AAMAS-09 in Budapest in May. Winning papers must have been published at least 10 years before the award presentation, therefore this year's eligible set comprises papers published in 1999 or earlier, in any recognized forum (journal, conference, workshop). To nominate a publication for this award, please send the full reference plus a brief statement (150 words or fewer) about the significance of the paper to Michael Wellman (chair of the 2009 award cmte), firstname.lastname@example.org.
