About these proceedings


PRIMA 2000 was the third in the series of Paci c Rim International Workshops on Multi-Agents. It was held on August 28-29, 2000, in Melbourne, Australia in conjunction with the Paci c Rim International Conference on Arti cial Intel- gence 2000. PRIMA is the main forum for the agent or multi-agent researchers in paci c rim countries to exchange and discuss their research results. This volume contains selected papers from PRIMA 2000. It covers theory, design, and applications of intelligent agents. The speci c aspects include co- dination, negotiation, learning, architecture, speci cation, allocation, and app- cation of intelligent agents. All papers are of high quality because each of them was reviewed and recommended by at least two international renowned program committee members. Many people contributed to this volume. We would like to thank all the a- hors who submitted papers to the workshop. Many thanks also to the members of the program committee who diligently reviewed all the papers. Finally, we thank the editorial sta of Springer-Verlag for publishing this volume in the Lecture Notes in Arti cial Intelligence series.
