Amal El Fallah-Seghrouchni
Amal El Fallah Seghrouchni is Professor at Sorbonne University - Faculty of Science and Engineering and is currently in delegation to the CNRS. She is a researcher at LIP6 where she leads the Multi-Agent Systems Group. Her research focuses on the design of autonomous systems and ambient intelligent applications. She develops an approach based on cognitive agents and multi-agent systems. This includes coordination models (negotiation, distributed planning, interaction protocols) and the programming of contextual systems based on adaptation and learning (collective learning, mobile agents, spatio-temporal design). Her research themes are used in a large number of applications in the areas of complex system design, simulation, contextual applications and smart cities. These applications are supported by a large number of industrial collaborations and by several international collaborations.
Amal El Fallah Seghrouchni has also held a number of scientific responsibilities in leading international organizations (eg General Chair at AAMAS 2020, Track Chair at AAMAS 2019, Track Chair at IJCAI 2019, Chair of the APIA 2019 Program Committee, elected member to IFAAMAS and EURAMAS boards, etc.). She has also published numerous books and articles in the best conferences of Artificial Intelligence and Multi-Agent Systems.
Knowledge Management in the era of Smart Cities
The smart city of the future is a new way of thinking and designing the urban space. Resilient, safe and enjoyable, it will seek to offer easy and sustainable mobility as well as various intelligent, personalized and adaptable services.
Building the smart city of the future raises two big challenges. The first challenge is technological; it requires a high level of information and communication technologies.
The second challenge is societal because it is fundamental to put the human at the center of technological developments.
In this talk, we will discuss the requirements of the smart city of the future, the potential contributions of Artificial Intelligence, multi-agent systems and the important place of knowledge management to bring intelligent services into the Smart City of the future.

Digital Transformation: Myths and Realities
2018’s buzz word was definitely Digital Transformation and certainly, everybody is becoming Digital Transformation expert. But what digital transformation embodies is more profound than digitization of specific processes, customer experiences, establishing digital factories, doing open innovation with star-ups, applying tools such as deign thinking. This talk will cover the founding principles of Digital Transformations, the reasons behind this motion, and will provide a framework for a successful digital transformation together with tools to building its own roadmap.
