5th International KES Conference on Agents and Multi-agent Systems – Technologies and Applications29 June (registration and drinks reception)
30 June & 1 July (conference sessions)
KES-AMSTA-2011 is an international scientific conference for research in the field of agent and multi-agent systems. The aim of the conference is to provide an internationally respected forum for scientific research in the technologies and applications of agent and multi-agent systems.
Agents and multi-agent systems are related to a modern software paradigm which has long been recognized as a promising technology for constructing autonomous, complex and intelligent systems. This conference will provide an excellent opportunity for researchers to discuss modern approaches and techniques for agent and multi-agent systems and their applications.
KES-AMSTA-2011 is organised by KES International and Manchester Metropolitan University in England. The university which is hosting the conference is located in the city centre of Manchester. Our city has a strong international presence in the sporting arena: as host to 2002 Commonwealth Games, the location of the National Velodrome and home of Manchester United and Manchester City football clubs. The Bridgewater Hall is home to the Halle Orchestra which is visited by an array of international talent in the fields of classical and contemporary music. In contrast our bohemian Northern Quarter is the current focus of one of the world's most vibrant popular music scenes. However there is more to enjoy nearby, including a number of traditional English stately homes and the Jodrell Bank radio telescope.
The many attractions of the area are easily reached via Manchester International Airport, which is 11 miles by motorway from the city centre and our university. This trip can be made by Taxi or a 24 hour bus service. Man-chester Metropolitan University is part of the largest higher education campus in the UK and one of the most extensive education centres in Europe. With a history dating back 150 years it has a combination of the traditional and the contemporary that sets it apart and gives it a distinct character.
