ABOUT EASSS-2017

Since 1999, the annual European Agent Systems Summer School (EASSS) has provided a highly successful forum for knowledge exchange between researchers in the field of autonomous agents and multi-agent systems. The previous editions of EASSS took place in Catania (2016), Barcelona (2015), Chania (2014), London (2013), Valencia (2012), Girona (2011), Saint-Etienne (2010), Turin (2009), Lisbon (2008), Durham (2007), Annecy (2006), Utrecht (2005), Liverpool (2004), Bologna (2003), Barcelona (2002), Prague (2001), Saarbruecken (2000), and Utrecht (1999).

The 19th European Agent Systems Summer School will be held at the University of Gdansk, Poland, from the 7th to the 11th of August 2017.

As was the case with the earlier editions, EASSS-2017 will offer a rich programme of both introductory and advanced courses on a broad range of topics in the area of Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems. The courses are aimed at advanced Master’s students, PhD students, and other young researchers, and will be taught by leading researchers in the field.

EASSS is organised under the auspices of EURAMAS, the European Association for Multiagent Systems (http://www.euramas.org/).
