Carles Sierra García

Carles Sierra is Research Professor and Director of the Artificial Intelligence Research Institute (IIIA) of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) located in the area of Barcelona. He is currently the President of EurAI, the European Association for Artificial Intelligence. He has previously worked at different universities in the UK and Australia. In the latter country he is an adjunct professor at Western Sydney University. He has taught at various universities, including the University of Technology Sydney, the Politècnica de València, the Paris Descartes, or the Autònoma de Barcelona, among others. He has participated in more than 20 projects funded by the European Union and has secured more than €12M in funding throughout his career.

He is or has been a member of various journal editorial boards, including those of AIJ and JAIR, two of the most prestigious generalist journals, and has been editor-in-chief of JAAMAS, which specializes in autonomous agents. He has published more than 300 articles that have received more than 20,000 citations. He organized IJCAI, the most important international artificial intelligence conference, in 2011 in Barcelona and was its Program Committee Chair in 2017 in Melbourne. He has been a member of the IFAAMAS committee that manages the reference congress on autonomous agents and multi-agent systems (AAMAS) of which he was Program Chair in 2004 and General Chair in 2009. He was the President of the Catalan artificial intelligence association for four years and its treasurer for eight. Since 2005 he is a Fellow of the European AI Association, EurAI. He received the ACM/SIGAI Autonomous Agents Research Award In 2019.

He has been doing research in Artificial Intelligence since 1985, the year in which the Center for Advanced Studies of the CSIC in Blanes was created. Initially he worked on knowledge representation, uncertainty and expert systems. His main area of research is the design of autonomous agent architectures and multi-agent systems. His key contributions are in the area of automated trading and computational negotiation and argumentation, with papers from the 1990s still cited. Since the mid-1990s, he has been the main promotor of the area of electronic institutions and very active in electronic commerce mediated by autonomous agents through auctions. Since 2005, he has made contributions in the area of agreement technologies, in particular in trust models, in automated negotiation based on information theory and in multi-agent organizations.

Currently, he is working on team formation tecniques, value engineering for autonomous agents and explainability. His main area of application has moved to the use of AI in Education.
