Frank Dignum - Utrecht University

Dr. Frank Dignum is working on social aspects of software agents with applications in serious gaming, social simulations and robotics. He is well known for his work on norms and other social structures. His latest research focuses on creating new agent architectures to build agents and robots that operate in real-time environments and have to cooperate with humans and other agents. He has organized many workshops and conferences on the topics and given tutorials at most major conferences and summer schools on them. At the moment his H-index is 50.
