CALL FOR NOMINATIONS: IFAAMAS Award for Influential Papers


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-2012 in Valencia in June.  Winning papers must have been published at least 10 years before 
the award presentation, therefore this year's eligible set comprises papers published in 2002 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 Jeff Rosenschein (chair of the 2012 
committee for this award), jeff@cs.huji.ac.il. (Please put NOMINATION in the subject line.)

Nominations are due by February 3, 2012.

2012 Influential Paper Award Committee:
Ed Durfee, Carles Sierra, Liz Sonenberg, Jeff Rosenschein (chair)
