João Leite is Assistant Professor at the Computer Science Department at the New University of Lisbon. His research interests focus on Knowledge Representation 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 and Twelfth International Workshops on Computational Logic in Multi-Agent Systems (CLIMA III, CLIMA IV, CLIMA V, CLIMA XI and CLIMA XII), 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 (LADS007, LADS’009 and LADS’010) and was Conference Chair of the Nineth International Conference on Logics in Artificial Intelligence (JELIA’04), held in Lisbon, Portugal, in 2004 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 60 scientific papers published internationally (cf. http://centria.di.fct.unl.pt/~jleite for details).
