Call for Nomination: 2011 IFAAMAS Award for Influential Papers


Contact: yokoo@is.kyushu-u.ac.jp

** Call for Nominations ***

***************************************************************************************************
2011 IFAAMAS Award for Influential Papers in Autonomous Agents and Multiagent
Systems
***************************************************************************************************

In 2006 The International Foundation for Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent
Systems 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-2011 in Taipei 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 2001 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 Makoto Yokoo (chair of the 2011 committee
for this award), yokoo@is.kyushu-u.ac.jp. (Please put NOMINATION in the
subject line.)

Nominations are due by 28th January 2011.

2011 Influential Paper Award Committee:
Joerg Mueller, Lin Padgham, Ana Paiva, Makoto Yokoo (chair)
