Massively Multi-Agent Technology
AAMAS Workshops, MMAS 2006, LSMAS 2006, and CCMMS 2007 Hakodate, Japan, May 9, 2006 Honolulu, HI, USA, May 15, 2007 Selected and Revised Papers
This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-workshop proceedings of the joint AAMAS 2006 International Workshops on Massively Multi-Agent Systems, MMAS 2006, and on Large scale Multi-Agent Systems, LSMAS 2006, held in Hakodate, Japan, in May 2006, and of the International Workshop on Coordination and Control in Massively Multi-Agent Systems, CCMMS 2007, held in Honolulu, HI, USA, in May 2007 as associated event of AAMAS 2007.
The 13 revised full papers presented were carefully selected from the presentations made at the 3 workshops fall in 4 broad categories, presenting a snapshot of current research. Included are implementation strategies addressing coordination in the space of spatial and temporal distributed systems; approaches to deal with complexity to make decisions such as task allocation and team formation efficiently, by creating implicit or explicit encapsulations; and finally, a diverse range of applications to which these approaches may be applied, from large-scale agent based simulations to managing different types of networks to image segmentation.
