RoboCup Games @ PRIMA 2009 will be held as Agent Event of the 12th International Conference on Principles of Practice in Multi-Agent Systems (PRIMA 2009) on Dec. 14-16, 2009 at Nagoya, Japan.
PRIMA is the leading scientific conference for research on intelligent agent systems and multi-agent systems, attracting high quality, state-of-the-art research from all over the world. The conference endeavors to bring together researchers, developers, and academic and industry leaders, active and interested in agents and multi-agent systems, their practices and related areas. The conference is specifically focused on becoming the premier forum for prototype and deployed agent systems. The conference offers an exceptional opportunity for presentation of original work, technological advances, practical problems and concerns of the research community.
RoboCup is an international research and education initiative. It is an attempt to foster AI and intelligent robotics research by providing a standard problem where wide range of technologies can be integrated and examined, as well as being used for integrated project-oriented education.
This time, we will have conpetitions of Soccer Simulation league and Rescue Simulation league, both of which are a good testbed of multi-agent researches.
