Welcome to the DAI 2019, October 13-15, Beijing

Lately, there has been tremendous growth for artificial intelligence in general and for multiagent systems research in particular. Problems arise where decisions are no longer made by a center but by autonomous and distributed agents. Such decision problems have been recognized as a central research agenda in AI and a fundamental problem in multiagent research. Resolving these problems requires that different scientific communities interact with each other, calling for collaborations and raising further important interdisciplinary questions.

Under this context, the aim of the Distributed AI (DAI) is bringing together researchers and practitioners in related areas (e.g., general AI, multi-agent systems, distributed learning, computational game theory) to provide a single, high-profile, internationally renowned forum for research in the theory and practice of distributed AI. The first conference will be located in Beijing China in October 2019. To maintain the high quality of the conference, we will invite high quality tutorials and invite accepted papers at sister conferences (e.g., AAMAS, AAAI, IJCAI, EC, KDD, ICML, NeurIPS) to present at the conference. We will also invited high quality talks from industry.
