Dr. Tim Baarslag

Visitor

Personal homepage

Tim Baarslag is a Researcher at the Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI), the national research institute for Mathematics and Computer Science in the Netherlands. He is a Visiting Assistant Professor at Nagoya University of Technology and Visiting Fellow at the University of Southampton.

Tim Baarslag graduated from Utrecht University with a MSc in Mathematics and a BSc in Computer Science (both cum laude). He obtained his PhD (cum laude) from Delft University of Technology in 2014 on the topic of intelligent decision support systems for automated negotiation. Between 2014 and 2016, he was a Research Fellow in the Electronics and Computer Science Department of the University of Southampton, where he worked on negotiation techniques for obtaining meaningful consent.

Tim current research focus is on negotiation strategies for smart energy cooperatives. His research interests include agent-based negotiation, coordination and cooperation, preference elicitation, decision making under uncertainty, privacy and consent, and smart grid systems.

Tim serves as a PC member in top-level conferences such as AAAI and IJCAI, and as a reviewer in high-ranking journals such as Artificial Intelligence and JAAMAS.  He is an organizer of the Workshop on Conflict Resolution in Decision Making (ECAI 2016). Tim's PhD dissertation "What to Bid and When to Stop" won the 2014 Victor Lesser Distinguished Dissertation Runner-up Award in recognition of an exceptional PhD dissertation in the area of Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems and was shortlisted for the 2014 Artificial Intelligence Dissertation Award for the best doctoral dissertations in the general area of Artificial Intelligence.
