Faculty Introduction

OSAWA, Ei-Ichi


Message for Students

Research makes the difference.

Research Contents

His general research interests include open distributed computing systems, multiagent organization, massively multiagent systems, multi robot coordination, interface agents, and complex network.

Attractive Factors of My Research

Viewing a large scale distributed computing environment, i.e. Internet, as a combination of multiagent systems and complex network is especially useful, and will lead to develop interesting applications.


Modelling an opportunistic collaborative planning scheme in open distributed environment, and a meta-level organization scheme in multiagent systems.
