New Trends In Applied Computer Science


  The Agent Day'2K 

March 16-17, 2000
Krakow, Poland

The annual workshop on multi-agent systems and new trends in softcomputing


Institute of Computer Science, Jagiellonian University in cooperation with Institute of Computer Science, Academy of Mining and Metallurgy.


The meeting will be held in the new building of the Institute of Computer Science, Jagiellonian University, Nawojki 11, Krakow, Poland.

Krakow, the former capital of Poland possesses the large historical inner city with beautiful monuments and buildings. The city is famous for its Wawel Castle and the Jagiellonian University, the oldest university in Poland, founded 1364 by the King Casimir the Great.


The workshop is a forum for scientists, software engineers, practitioners and young researchers engaged in softcomputing, especially distributed computing systems involving multi-agent programming paradigm. The special session will be devoted to distributed genetic programming and Artificial Intelligence methods in Computer Aided Engineering.

Major part of the meeting will be covered by key lectures.
