The AAMAS-2004 Workshop on
Teaching Multi-Agent Systems
held at the third international joint conference on Autonomous Agents & Multi Agent Systems (AAMAS-2004)
19 July 2004, New York City
Multi-Agent Systems (MAS) have reached a point where many people have become interested in being educated in MAS basics and specialities. So far, we find rather isolated attempts at providing help in teaching MAS. This workshop aims at bringing together researchers that are interested in the teaching aspect of the field to define core concepts of MAS that courses should provide and to inform each other about MAS-specific problems in teaching and MAS-specific tools that improve the learning experience of students.
We have been seeking contributions describing
Contributions were be reviewed based on their quality, clarity of presentation, objective analysis of the reported experiences and novelty.
One of the obvious problems to solve in the area of MAS is what topics should be covered in a basic MAS course. While different people for sure will have rather different views concerning a complete course, nevertheless we expect a certain agreement on at least a few topics. What constitutes these core topics will be a central topic for discussions during the workshop. We therefore want to ask everyone who wants to participate in the workshop and/or discussions to send the organizers a short statement describing his/her expectations for a basic MAS course, with some indication of what the own research areas are. The organizers will analyze these statements and report on the spread of topics found during the workshop to start the discussion.
The workshop will be a mixture of submitted presentations and the open discussion about the core topics that should be covered in a MAS course.
The workshop will be on July 19, 2004, from 9:00 to 13:00. The program is as follows:
