       !!!     CALL FOR TUTORIALS AT EASSS'02   !!!

After successful summer schools on Agent Systems in Utrecht, 
Saarbrucken, Prague, Barcelona, Bologna and Liverpool,
Agentlink (www.agentlink.org) is planning to organise 
the seventh edition of this event in 

          Utrecht, the Netherlands, 18 - 22 July 2004
             European Agent Systems Summer School
(Note that this is one week before AAMAS'04 in Utrecht!)

Researchers and teachers in this field are invited to 
submit a proposal for a course. A typical course is
4 hours in total, but deviations are possible. For an
impression, the courses of 2001 are collected in the
LNAI series of Springer Verlag (No 2086), and programs
of previous editions of EASSS are still at AgentLink's

The summer schools attract about 125 students each year. 
We intend to pay a modest contribution towards tutor
expenses, but each tutor is encouraged to book and pay his/
her own travel and accommodation to and in Utrecht.

Tutors are encouraged to submit a propsosal for a course, 
including a 1 page description mentioning experience of 
the tutor, level of the course (beginners, advanced), 
duration (2, 6, or, preferably, 4 hours) and needs for

Deadline for proposals:		December 19, 2004.
Notification: 			15 January, 2005
material for reader (< 26 pp)	April 15, 2005
To be send to: 			wiebe at csc.liv.ac.uk

The EASSS05 committee consists of
