Preface
Trading agents have become a prominent application area of artificial intelligence because of their
potential for transforming electronic commerce, and because they present a stiff challenge to models
of rational decision-making. A wide variety of trading scenarios and agent approaches have been
studied, creating a broad and rich research area. This AAAI workshop, which is collocated with the
2008 edition of the international Trading Agent Competition (TAC 2008) focuses on the design and
evaluation of trading agents. It includes articles on trading agent architectures, decision-making algorithms, theoretical analyses, empirical evaluations of agent strategies in negotiation scenarios, and
game-theoretic analyses.
We would like to thank the members of the program committee for their help reviewing articles
submitted to the workshop and the authors for their submissions.
