Jaime Simão Sichman has obtained both his B.E. and M.E. degrees in Electrical Enginnering from the University of São Paulo. He was one of the first students to obtain an European label to his PhD degree in Computer Engineering, developed at the Institut National Polytechnique de Grenoble (INPG), France, since part of his research was carried out at the Istituto di Psicologia del CNR, Rome, Italy. More recently, he has spent an abbreviated post-doctoral period at the University of Utrecht, at the Netherlands. His main research focus is multi-agent systems, more particularly in subjects like social reasoning, organizational reasoning, multi-agent-based simulation, reputation and trust, and interoperability in agent systems. He has advised/co-advised 11 MsC, 9 PhD, and several undergraduate students. He has published more than 160 papers in national and international conferences and journals. He is member of the editorial board of the Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation (JASSS), Mediterranean Journal of Artificial Intelligence, Computación y Sistemas, Revista Iberoamericana de Inteligencia Artificial, and the Knowledge Engineering Review. He has organized several national and international conferences and workshops; in particular he was the SBIA/IBERAMIA General Chair (2000), Program Co-Chair (2006), and AAMAS Tutorial Chair (2007) and Program Co-Chair (2009). He was the coordinator of the Artificial Intelligence Special Interest Group (CEIA) of the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC), and was also a member of the Society’s Council. He was indicated as a member of the Association of Computing Machinery (ACM) Distinguished Speaker Program in 2012. Currently, he is an Associated Professor of the Computer Engineering and Digital Systems Department (PCS) of the Polytechnic School (EP) at the University of São Paulo, where he was also the director of its Electronic Computing Center (CCE) from 2010 to 2013.
