Amazing agent papers to be presented at the AAMAS-05 conference
The list of accepted papers for the 2005 Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems is just out. It's quite an amazing and long list that shows the breadth and depth of interest in software agents, but also illustrates the extent to which many research questions remain open and the overall industrial-scale technology really isn't there yet, let alone ready for wide-spread prime-time commercial deployment.
In addition to the formal papers to be presented at the scheduled sessions, quite a number of papers will also be presented informally as "posters".
The intensity of the research efforts is truly amazing and certainly thought-provoking and exciting, but I'm also disappointed that we still have quite a distance to go before a lot of our visions can be made into reality.
