Dear All,

---------------------------------------
1999 AAAI Symposium Series

Proposed Symposium on
INTELLIGENT AGENTS ON THE CYBERSPACE; Stanford University, Palo Alto,
CA, USA
March 1999/Oct 1999
---------------------------------------

It is proposed to organize a Symposium on Intelligent Agents on the
Cyberspace, next year under the popular and highly reputed AAAI
Symposium series. A brief synopsis of the symposium is given below.

I am sure many of you would be interested in the symposium on a rapidly
emerging area of growing importance and significance. The organizing
committee and AAAI Symposium committee, however, would like to gauge the
interest in the proposed symposium to proceed further.

PLEASE SEND AN EMAIL TO ME (s.murugesan@uws.edu.au) IMMEDIATELY, giving
your name and address, if you are interested in the proposed symposium.
This NOT A COMMITMENT TO PARTICIPATE. Those who expressed interest will
automatically be included in the mailing list of the Symposium and will
be informed with further details of the Symposium.

As the acceptance of the proposed symposium depends on how many persons
have expressed interest in it, YOUR RESPONSE IS VERY IMPORTANT. PLEASE
RESPOND BEFORE 10TH JUNE 1999 via email to s.murugesan@uws.edu.au

Symposium on Intelligent Agents on the Cyberspace

Synopsis

Intelligent agents, a rapidly emerging new paradigm in artificial
intelligence and computing, have potential to play vital roles on the
Cyberspace, the global information infrastructure facilitated by the
Internet and the Web. There is now growing interest in and need for
deployment of intelligent software agents on the Cyberspace - on the
Internet and Web - to mitigate some of the major difficulties we face
and to enable effective use of the Cyberspace for a variety of
applications.

To make a quantum leap in this area and to tap on the vast potentials of
intelligent agents on the Cyberspace, however, researchers and
practitioners in artificial intelligence/agents, Internet and web,
information systems and e-business communities need to work together to
1) explore potential opportunities, 2) address various issues in design
and development of intelligent agents for applications in Cyberspace,
and 3) devise new, integrated, comprehensive approaches for widespread
implementation and effective use of intelligent agents on the
Cyberspace.

This symposium will cater to these needs, promote and accelerate work in
this area, foster new developments and contribute to widespread
applications of AI/intelligent agents in the ever growing, rapidly
getting congested, complex Cyberspace of the networked world.

The goal of the symposium is to assess the current status of research,
development, and applications of intelligent agents on the Internet and
the Web, and to pave directions for further work. By bring together
researchers in the area of intelligent agents, information retrieval,
electronic business and the Internet and Web, the symposium will provide
a platform for focussed presentations and foster useful discussions on
the important theme - intelligent agents on the Cyberspace. It will
also address the specific issues that impede the progress, practical
implementation and widespread deployment of intelligent agents on the
Cyberspace.
