The purpose of the 5th International Conference on Agents and Artificial Intelligence (ICAART) 
is to bring together researchers, engineers and practitioners interested in the theory and 
applications in these areas. Two simultaneous but strongly related tracks will be held, covering 
both applications and current research work within the area of Agents, Multi-Agent Systems and 
Software Platforms, Distributed Problem Solving and Distributed AI in general, including web 
applications, on one hand, and within the area of non-distributed AI, including the more 
traditional areas such as Knowledge Representation, Planning, Learning, Scheduling, Perception 
and also not so traditional areas such as Reactive AI Systems, Evolutionary Computing and other 
aspects of Computational Intelligence and many other areas related to intelligent systems, on 
the other hand.

A substantial amount of research work is ongoing in these knowledge areas, in an attempt to 
discover appropriate theories and paradigms to use in real-world applications. Much of this 
important work is therefore theoretical in nature. However there is nothing as practical as a 
good theory, as Boltzman said many years ago, and some theories have indeed made their way into 
practice. Informatics applications are pervasive in many areas of Artificial Intelligence and 
Distributed AI, including Agents and Multi-Agent Systems; This conference intends to emphasize 
this connection, therefore, authors are invited to highlight the benefits of Information 
Technology (IT) in these areas. Ideas on how to solve problems using agents and artificial 
intelligence, both in R&D and industrial applications, are welcome. Papers describing advanced 
prototypes, systems, tools and techniques and general survey papers indicating future directions 
are also encouraged. Papers describing original work are invited in any of the areas listed below. 
Accepted papers, presented at the conference by one of the authors, will be published in the 
Proceedings of ICAART with an ISBN. A book with the best papers of the conferene will be 
published by Springer- Verlag. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and originality. 
Both full research reports and work-in-progress reports are welcome. There will be both oral and poster sessions.

Special sessions, dedicated to case-studies and commercial presentations, as well as tutorials
dedicated to technical/scientific topics are also envisaged:

companies interested in presenting their products/methodologies or researchers interested in 
holding a tutorial are invited to contact the conference

secretariat. Additional information can be found at

Wiebe van der Hoek, University of Liverpool, United Kingdom

Max Bramer, University of Portsmouth, United Kingdom


All accepted papers (full, short and posters) will be published in the conference proceedings, 
under an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM support.

All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SciTePress Digital Library 

SciTePress is member of CrossRef (

A short list of presented papers will be selected so that revised and extended versions of these 
papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in a CCIS Series book.

The proceedings will be submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings 
Citation Index, INSPEC, DBLP and EI.


Best paper awards will be distributed during the conference closing session.
