Call for Papers Fourth Symposium on ADAPTIVE AGENTS AND MULTI-AGENT SYSTEMS (AAMAS-4) March 29th - 30th, 2004 Leeds, UK http://www.cs.york.ac.uk/~kudenko/aamas4/ (Part of the AISB '04 Convention) In recent years it became well-accepted, that it is crucial for intelligent agents to have the ability to learn from and adapt to their environment. This task is even more complex when the agent is situated in an environment that contains other agents with potentially different capabilities and goals. The goal of this symposium is to increase awareness and interest in adaptive and learning agent research, encourage collaboration between machine learning experts and agent system experts, and give a representative overview of current research in the area of adaptive agents. The symposium will serve as an inclusive forum for the discussion on ongoing or completed work in both theoretical and practical issues. The proposed symposium is the fourth in a series of symposia that have taken place annually since 2001 (see http://www.aamas.net). All accepted papers are published in Symposia proceedings. The best papers from the first two AAMAS Symposia have been published in a Springer LNAI book (LNAI 2636), and we plan to publish a follow-up volume including papers from the third and fourth AAMAS Symposia. IMPORTANT DATES: Paper Submission: January 5th, 2004. Notification of Acceptance: January 26th, 2004 Camera-Ready Copies Due: March 1st, 2004. Symposium Dates: March 29th - 30th, 2004.
