Luis Antunes holds a PhD in Computer Science from University of Lisbon (2001). He has been a researcher in Artificial Intelligence since 1988 and published more than 70 refereed scientific papers. He was the founder and first director of the Group of Studies in Social Simulation (GUESS). Luis Antunes is on the Program Committee of some of the most important international conferences on Artificial Intelligence, Multi-Agent Systems and Social Simulation, such as AAMAS, ECAI, ESSA, WCSS and MABS. He was co-chair of the international workshops MABS'05, MABS'06, MABS'07 on Multi-Agent-Based Simulation, and co-editor of the Springer-Verlag proceedings volumes. He is member of the MABS Steering Committee, of EUMAS Advisory Board, member of ESSA Management Committee and of APPIA (Portuguese Association for AI) board of directors. Antunes hosted EUMAS 2006 and AAMAS 2008, and ECAI 2010 as chair of the organising committee. He was the proponent and a co-chair of the first IJCAI workshop on Social Simulation (SS@IJCAI 2009), the founder of the first Portuguese Workshop on Social Simulation as a Special Track of EPIA 2009, and the Program Chair of EPIA 2011.
