João Leite is Associate Professor at the Computer Science Department at the New University of Lisbon. His research interests focus on Knowledge Represen- tation and Non-Monotonic Reasoning with Logic Programming for Multi-Agent Systems. He has been involved in the design of several extensions of Answer Set Programming for Agent Systems, such as EVOLP, DLP, MDLP and KABUL, and the logic programming based agent architecture Minerva.
He has co-organised the Third, Fourth, Fifth, Eleventh, Twelfth and Four- teenth International Workshops on Computational Logic in Multi-Agent Systems (CLIMA III, CLIMA IV, CLIMA V, CLIMA XI, CLIMA XII and CLIMA XIV), the First and Second Workshops on Declarative Agent Languages and Technologies (DALT’03 and DALT’04), the First, Second and Third International Workshop on Languages Methodologies And Development Tools for Multi-Agent System (LADS’007, LADS’009 and LADS’010), was PC Chair of the Fourteenth International Conference on Logics in Artificial Intelligence (JELIA’14), Conference Chair of the Ninth International Conference on Logics in Artificial Intelligence (JELIA’04), and Organiser of the 10th European Agent System Summer School (EASSS’08) held in Caparica, Portugal in May 2008.
He has authored one book, edited several books published by Springer and three journal special issues, and co-authored more than 80 scientific papers published internationally (cf. http://centria.di.fct.unl.pt/~jleite for details).
