About the Author
Barbara Dunin-Keplicz is the head of the Multi-agent Systems Group at the Institute of Informatics of the Warsaw University and at the Institute of Computer Science of the Polish Academy of Sciences (ICS PAS). She was awarded a M.Sc. in 1976 from Warsaw University, PhD in 1990 from Jagiellonian University, and her habilitation in 2004 from ICS PAS. Dunin-Keplicz was a visiting research fellow at the Department of Computer Science at the Free University of Amsterdam, 1994-1997, and at the Department of Artificial Intelligence at the University of Groningen, from 1998. Her publications and research have been interdisciplinary. Starting from computational linguistics, reasoning about action and change, and formal theories of multiagent systems, including Agent Communication Languages, she is now focused on foundations of multiagent systems, especially on the theory of motivational attitudes in BDI systems.
Rineke Verbrugge is Associate Professor at the University of Groningen at the Institute of Artificial Intelligence, to which she has been affiliated from 1997. Since 2002, she has been leader of the group Multi-agent Systems at the university, where her work focused on logics in artificial intelligence, specifically multi-agent systems, reasoning about others, and group reasoning.
She received a M.Sc. (cum laude) in Mathematics in 1988 and a Ph.D. in Mathematics in 1993, both from the University of Amsterdam. Subsequently, she was post-doc at the Department of Logic at the Charles University in Prague (TEMPUS grant) and at the Department of Logic at the University of Gothenburg (NWO Talent stipend), as well as Visiting Assistant Professor at the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). From 1995 to 1997, she was Assistant Professor at the Department of Artificial Intelligence at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.
