General Information

This course is intended for students who already have basic knowledge about multi-agent systems (and AI) and who want to learn more about the state-of-the-art in a specific subfield of multi-agent systems (or AI). The format of the course is in the form of a project. Each student is given a subfield of multi-agent systems and a particular application, resp. application area, for concepts from the subfield. Then the student has to do research on the given subfield and its application. He or she has to produce a report that provides an overview of the subfield and its concepts, an introduction to the assigned application, and that discusses the potential usage of concepts from the subfield for solving problems in the application area. Also, each student has to give a presentation in which he/she presents the results of the project.

The prerequisite for this course is that a student has taken either CPSC 609 or CPSC 567 and that he/she has my permission. For the later, I suggest that a student who is interested in the course contacts me to discuss a possible subfield and a particular application.


The University policy on grading and related matters is described in the university calendar and naturally this policy is also applied to this course. Course specific details are as follows.

A student has to give a presentation on the status of the project to the supervisor and has to produce the report. The grade for the presentation contributes 30 percent to the final grade, the report 70 percent.

For the report, there will be 3 (sub)grades:
