Forum Chair: Paolo Petta (OFAI and Medical University of Vienna, Austria) Forum Co-chairs: Andrea Omicini (Universita' di Bologna a Cesena), László Z.

Differently from normal scientific activity, as it usually occurs in conferences and workshops, TFGs were not designed to be “publication-oriented”, but primarily “connection-oriented”. The Third AgentLink III Technical Forum (AL3-TF3) took place in Budapest, Hungary, 15-17 September 2005, in co-location with the 4th International Central and Eastern European Conference on Multi-Agent Systems (CEEMAS 2005), one of the most prominent international conferences in the agent field. More than 100 researchers from across Europe made of this third Forum a very successful event, with each TFG counting on a wide and diverse group of participants. The overall atmosphere was friendly and fruitful throughout, with several new co-operations and possible future initiatives emerging from the presentations and discussions.

Abstract

Forum Chair: Paolo Petta (OFAI and Medical University of Vienna, Austria) Forum Co-chairs: Andrea Omicini (Universita' di Bologna a Cesena), László Z. Varga (MTA SZTAKI, Budapest, Hungary) AgentLink III seeks to promote the development and adoption of agent research and technology across Europe. One of its main means for achieving this goal is the Technical Forum Groups (TFGs). Successors of AgentLink I & II Special Interest Groups (SIGs), TFGs are intended to provide a common meeting place for researchers and developers who share an interest in a specific sub-area of agent technology. The AgentLink III Technical Fora are periodical events held throughout the two-year lifespan of AgentLink III, which provide TF Groups with the opportunity to meet, to share ideas and results, and to co-ordinate their future research agendas. In short, the aims of the AgentLink III Technical Fora are: • to facilitate the development of communities around specific areas of strategic importance for European agent R&D, enabling them to share common problems, issues, and results in a manner that other fora (e.g., academic workshops and conferences) do not allow; • to respond dynamically to fast-changing developments; • to support the updating of the AgentLink III roadmap from that produced during AgentLink II; • to provide the AgentLink III management committee with “bottom-up” input to its decision- making process, and hence ensure that the strategic direction of the network is reactive to the needs of its members; • to establish links with related areas within computing, and related areas in other research disciplines, such as economics and biology. Differently from normal scientific activity, as it usually occurs in conferences and workshops, TFGs were not designed to be “publication-oriented”, but primarily “connection-oriented”. The Third AgentLink III Technical Forum (AL3-TF3) took place in Budapest, Hungary, 15-17 September 2005, in co-location with the 4th International Central and Eastern European Conference on Multi-Agent Systems (CEEMAS 2005), one of the most prominent international conferences in the agent field.
