Table of Contents

KES-AMSTA-2009 is an international scientific symposium for research in the field of agent and multi-agent systems. The aim of the symposium is to provide an internationally respected forum for scientific research in the technologies and applications of agent and multi-agent systems.

Agents and multi-agent systems are related to a modern software paradigm which has long been recognized as a promising technology for constructing autonomous, complex and intelligent systems. This symposium will provide and excellent opportunity for researchers to discuss modern approaches and techniques for agent and multi-agent systems and their applications.

KES-AMSTA-2009 is organized by KES International and Uppsala University, Sweden, and will take place in Uppsala.
