Swinburne University

During my participation at the MPD programme I had a great opportunity to visit Professor Ryszard Kowalczyk from the Intelligent Agents Technology Group; School of Software and Electrical Engineering; Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology; Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia.

The work of Professor Kowalczyk belongs to an area of my interest and is closely related to my PhD thesis topic. Professor helped me a lot with my research career by pointing out some weaker points of my approach and by focusing my attention on the basics of agent communications and its limiting role in the negotiation processes. That gave me a wider perspective on how the agents should behave and what the real benefits of a multi-agent approach are. The effect of this cooperation was one article, so far, but I hope that our cooperation continues. Swinburne University is a great place to work, with well-equipped facilities and additional activities that made me feel welcome and at home, especially thanks to Khalid Mansour, Minyi Li, Eli Mydlarz and Michał Wosko.

 

Swinburne University is located in Hawthorn district of Melbourne, and it is a large campus with many faculties. In the picture you can see the newest building in the campus. Melbourne is a great place to stay, it is Australian culture centre with many opportunities for short trips to visit the most interesting parts of Australia (which means few hours by plane).
