Description

We are interested in becoming an "associated member" of AgentLink because we are not in a member or associated state.

The British University in Dubai is a new research-based university in the Middle East. The university opened its doors in September 2004 for Masters level students. The Informatics Institute is offering MSc degrees in "Knowledge & Data Management" and "Natural Language Engineering". One of the staff members has been active in the Agents area before joining the university. He is planning to establish a growing Agents Research Group within the institute, and being part of AgentLink would be very beneficial to support this activity.

The group, which now consists of one member only (Mr. Iyad Rahwan), has the following grants:

- Australian Research Council Discovery Grant, to the value of $178,000, in collaboration with Prof. Liz Sonenberg (University of Melbourne) and A/Prof. Frank Dignum (Utrecht University)

- Australian Research Council Linkage International Grant, to the value of $25,700, in collaboration with Prof. Liz Sonenberg (University of Melbourne) and A/Prof. Frank Dignum (Utrecht University)

The group leader is a PC member of AAMAS 2005, and initiator and co-chair of the 1st Int. Workshop on Argumentation in Multiagent Systems (ArgMAS) which was held in conjunction with AAMS 2004 in NY.
