Rescue US Open, Atlanta, Ga., May 7-10, 2005 --At the
Rescue US Open, the Carnegie Mellon University and The University
Pittsburgh Team RAPTOR won 1st place in the Advanced Mobility
class, 1st place in the Advanced Autonomy class and 3rd
place in the RoboRescue League. RAPTOR was the only team
to enter robots in every round of the competition. The RAPTOR
team fielded three
robots, a Pioneer, a PER and a Tarantula, that coordinated
to search and find victims in 3 arenas of increasing difficulty.

Physical Variability for Synthetic MOUT Agents," by
Sukthankar, Michael Mandel, Katia
Sycara and Jessica Hodgins, was selected for the Recommended
Reading List at the 13th Conference on Behavior Representation
in Modeling and Simulaton (BRIMS).
Sycara was elected a Fellow of the American Association
for Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) for her "significant
contributions to case-based reasoning, autonomous agents,
and multi-agent systems." One of a small select group of
individuals elected each year, Sycara was recognized at
the Fellows Dinner on July 30, during AAAI 2002 in Edmonton,
Sycara of Carnegie Mellon University has been awarded
the ACM SIGART Autonomous Agents Research Award for 2002.
Dr. Sycara has made significant contributions to a number
of subareas of agent research, including agent architectures,
middle agents, and multi-agent negotiation.
Sycara has been named representative of the DAML Service
