During the semester, our research group, Critical MAS, meets (usually on Wednesdays) to hear research updates and talks. Visit the Critical MAS web site to find out more (and send me email if you'd like to get our mailings).
In the Fall semester, 2012/2013, I taught Introduction to Artificial Intelligence. In Spring semester 2012/2013, I will be teaching Introduction to Multiagent Systems (an introductory course in that field, based on Wooldridge's textbook), and an Advanced Seminar in Artificial Intelligence. I was named one of Hebrew University's outstanding teachers for 2008/2009 and for 2009/2010 (based on student evaluations). I was a recipient of last year's Hebrew University Rector's Prize for Excellence in Research, Teaching and Active Participation in the Academic Life of the University (2011).
I am co-Editor-in-Chief (along with Peter Stone) of the Journal of Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems (JAAMAS), and on the Advisory Board of the Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research (JAIR). I am a Fellow of the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI). I am the recipient of the 2013 ACM/SIGART Autonomous Agents Research Award. From July 2004 through June 2007 I served as president of the International Foundation for Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems (IFAAMAS), formerly known as IFMAS, a non-profit organization whose purpose is to promote science and technology in the areas of artificial intelligence, autonomous agents, and multiagent systems. IFAAMAS sponsors the annual International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems, which will be held May 2013, in Saint Paul, Minnesota, after past conferences in Bologna, Melbourne, New York, Utrecht, Hakodate, Honolulu, Estoril (Portugal), Budapest, Toronto, Taipei, and Valencia. I was chairman of the Israeli Association for Artificial Intelligence from June 2008 to June 2010. Between October 2003 and June 2007 I was Department Chair of Computer Engineering, within the School of Computer Science and Engineering at Hebrew University; I had previously served as Department Chair of Computer Science, from February 1999 to October 2000.
