Autonomous Intelligent Systems: Agents and Data Mining
This volume contains the papers presented at the International Workshop “Autonomous Intelligent Systems: Agents and Data Mining” (AIS-ADM 2005) held in St. Petersburg, Russia, during June 6–8, 2005. The workshop was - ganized by the St. Petersburg Institute for Informatics and Automation of the Russian Academy of Sciences (SPIIRAS) in cooperation with Binghamton U- versity (SUNY, USA) and the Web Intelligence Consortium. Autonomous Intelligent Systems (AIS) constitute an emerging class of int- ligent information systems integrating recent advances in various technologies of Arti?cial Intelligence. Modern AIS incorporate multi-agent and data mining systemsprovidinganewdimensionforfurtherprogressinintelligentinformation technology. AIS-ADM 2005 provided an international forum to multi-agent and data mining researchers. A total of 29 papers from 15 countries relating to various aspects of both theory and applications of multi-agent systems, data mining and their joint area were submitted to AIS-ADM 2005. Out of them 17 were selected as regular presentations. Three technical sessions were organized, namely: In- gration of Multi-agent and Data Mining Techniques; Ontology Issues and Web Mining; and Applications and Case Studies of the Integrated Technology. The panel discussion was devoted to the mutual enrichment and challenging pr- lems emerging in the joint area of research. The AIS-ADM 2005 program was enriched by six distinguished invited speakers: Nick Jennings, Chengqi Zhang, Mircea Negoita, Pericles Mitkas, Hai Zhuge and Leonid Perlovsky.
