PRIMA 2008 was the 11th in a series of conferences gathering researchers - voted to developing intelligent agents and multi-agent technologies from Asia and the Paci?c regions. From its ?rst incarnation over a decade ago, PRIMA has emerged as a signi?cant international forum, facilitating the exchange and dissemination of innovative research from around the globe. PRIMA 2008 was held in Vietnam, a tribute to this country’s emerging s- enti?c vitality and importance as a developing innovation center. The Program Committee received 56 submissions from 20 countries. Many of these papers are the work of PhD or Masters students from Asian countries including - rea, Japan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Iran, India, and Vietnam. In accordance with the rules, each submission was carefully peer-reviewed by three Program C- mittee referees. Only 19 submissions were accepted as regular papers, with a competitive rate of 33%. Additionally, the Program Committee decided to accept 22 short papers mainly written by graduate students, allowing our young colleagues an opp- tunity to present their work and new perspectives. These fresh perspectives enhanced our experienced of the conference and complemented the high quality of the professional papers submitted.
