Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems

The emergence of autonomous agents and multi-agent technology is one of the
most exciting and important events to occur in computer science during the
1990s. It is widely believed that this technology will play a central role
in the development of complex distributed systems, networked information
systems, and computer interfaces during the twenty-first century. The aim of
the Journal is, therefore, to provide a forum for disseminating significant
new results in the foundations, development, analysis, and applications of
autonomous agents and multi-agent systems.

The Journal will publish original, high quality papers on the theory and
practice of autonomous agents and multi-agent systems. While a range of
submissions are welcome, from purely theoretical to application-oriented,
all submissions should indicate both the consequences of their results for
the development of agent systems and the significance of their results for
other researchers and practitioners within the field. The Journal will be
multi-disciplinary, in that it will be relevant to many fields that share
interests with agent systems. These fields include computer science and
artificial intelligence, software engineering, distributed systems,
distributed artificial intelligence, computer-supported cooperative work,
knowledge representation and manipulation, ethology, psychology,
organizational theory, sociology, linguistics, philosophy, economics, and
cognitive science.
