We are very pleased with the recent visit of a delegation of 70 professors from various Korean universities; they came to attend the Smart Media and Applications meeting organized in the University of Salamanca by our Research Group, BISITE.
I used this opportunity to tell them about all our projects and learn about the innovations they are working on.

The increasing importance of ISAMI on the international scale

The success of this year’s International Conference on Distributed Computing and Artificial Intelligence (DCAI)

Like every year, a new edition of the International Conference on Distributed Computing and Artificial Intelligence (DCAI) was held this week. 15 memorable editions are already behind us, this means that it is the 15th time that more than 300 participants gathered to share our ideas, projects and knowledge, all related to distributed computing and artificial intelligence, and their application in different areas.

The 16th edition of PAAMS in Toledo is an international forum for research on multi-agent agents and systems.

Every year I attend the International Conference on Practical Applications of Agents and Multi-Agent Systems and this was no different. The 16th edition was held in the beautiful city of Toledo with more than 300 participants.
A conference that provides an international forum to present and discuss the latest scientific developments and their effective applications, to assess the impact of the approach and to facilitate technology transfer in the field of agent and multi-agent systems
