Foreword: This book contains the proceedings of the 2nd International Conference on Agents and Artificial Intelligence (ICAART 2010) which was organized by the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication (INSTICC). ICAART 2010 was held in cooperation with the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI), the Portuguese Association for Artificial Intelligence (APPIA), the Spanish Association of Artificial Intelligence (AEPIA), the Workflow Management Coalition (WfMC) and the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM SIGART). The Conference Program includes oral presentations (full papers and short papers) and posters, organized in two simultaneous tracks: “Artificial Intelligence” and “Agents”. We are proud to inform that that the program includes also six plenary keynote lectures, given by internationally distinguished researchers, namely – Yves Demazeau (Laboratoire d'Informatique de Grenoble), Tim Finin (University of Maryland), Leonid Perlovsky (Harvard University), Vicent J. Botti i Navarro (Universidad Politécnica de Valencia), Peter D. Karp (AI Center at SRI International) and Amilcar Cardoso (University of Coimbra). The meeting is complemented with a Special Session on Computing Languages with Multi-Agent Systems and Bio-Inspired Devices. ICAART received 364 paper submissions from 58 countries, in all continents. To evaluate each submission, a double blind paper review was performed by the Program Committee, whose members are highly qualified researchers in ICAART topic areas. Based on the classifications provided, only 165 papers were selected to be published in these proceedings and presented at the conference. Of these, 96 papers were selected for oral presentation (31 full papers and 65 short papers) and 69 papers were selected for poster presentation. The full paper acceptance ratio was 9%, and the oral acceptance ratio (including full papers and short papers) was 26%. This strict acceptance ratio shows the intention to preserve a high quality forum which we expect to develop further next year. A short list of presented papers will be selected so that revised and extended versions of these papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in a CCIS Series book with the best papers of ICAART 2010. Conferences are also meeting places where collaboration projects can emerge from social contacts amongst the participants. Therefore, in order to promote the development of research and professional networks the Conference includes in its social program a Conference Social Event & Banquet in the evening of January 23 (Saturday). We would like to express our thanks to all participants. First of all to the authors, whose quality work is the essence of this conference; secondly to all members of the Program Committee and auxiliary reviewers, who helped us with their expertise and valuable time. We would also like to deeply thank the invited speakers for their excellent contribution in sharing their knowledge and vision. Finally, a word of appreciation for the hard work of the secretariat: organizing a conference of this level is a task that can only be achieved by the collaborative effort of a dedicated and highly capable team. The organization will distribute four paper awards at the conference closing session, two for the Agents track and two for the Artificial Intelligence track: each track will have a best paper award and the best student paper award. The decision is mainly based on the paper classifications provided by the Program Committee and the paper presentation at the conference. We wish you all an exciting conference and an unforgettable stay in the lovely city of Valencia. We hope to meet you again next year for the 3rd ICAART, details of which will soon be available at http://www.icaart.org. (More)
