MATES 2016

Zeit und Ort

Dienstag-Freitag 28.09. - 30.09. E 1.05 HS 9 CFP, Programmkomitee, Kontakt

The MATES conference series aims at the promotion of and the cross-fertilization between theory and application of intelligent agents and multiagent systems. It provides an interdisciplinary forum for researchers and members of business and industry to present and discuss latest advances in agent-based computing with prototyped or fielded systems in various application domains.
