Topic 1：Emergency incidents such has vehicle accident, medical emergencies and house fires could occur randomly in the urban areas. Traditional emergency responses reply on human operators and the rescue resources deployment results are highly impacted by the personal experience. In this talk, a multi-agent-based solution will be introduced to automatically perform the emergency response and the resource deployment process. An online multiagent system for emergency resource deployment will be also demonstrated during this talk.
Topic 2：In a complex agent environment, agents may need to conduct multiple interdependent negotiation with different opponents for different purposes. This talk will introduce the state-of-art approach in agent negotiation by considering different negotiation criteria and our latest research outcomes in the concurrent multiple negotiations domain.
