Present CFP : 2023


Research on Agents and Multi-Agent Systems has matured during the last decade and many effective applications of this technology are now deployed. PAAMS provides an international forum to present and discuss the latest scientific developments and their effective applications, to assess the impact of the approach, and to facilitate technology transfer. PAAMS started as a local initiative, but has since grown to become the international yearly platform to present, to discuss, and to disseminate the latest developments and the most important outcomes related to real-world applications. Right now, PAAMS is classified as B by CORE Ranking.

PAAMS'23 includes a special track for demonstrations. Demonstrations are intended to exhibit practical applications of multi-agent systems and will be a very useful tool in order to complement the regular program with practical examples of particular interest in the field of Artificial Intelligence.

Contributions and publication

The author/s must write a paper formatted according to the LNCS-LNAI template, with a maximum length of 6 pages and following the next structure: Introduction, Main purpose, Demonstration, Conclusions and References.

In order to submit a demonstration to PAAMS, you must register as an author at Conference Management System (Demonstration Track).

All accepted demonstrations will be included in PAAMS Proceedings as a paper, published in Springer.

During PAAMS, authors will have to show their demonstrations. The organization will provide a printed poster of the article, WIFI connection and space on a shared table with other competitors.

The best demo paper in PAAMS'23 will be awarded with 1.000€

More information:


Accepted papers will be published by Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence.

*** Indexing: The books of LNAI and CCIS as part of LNCS series of Springer are made available to the following indexing services: Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI), part of Clarivate Analytics’ Web of Science, EI Engineering Index (Compendex and Inspec databases), ACM Digital Library, DBLP, Google Scholar, IO-Port, MathSciNet, Scopus and Zentralblatt MATH. ****
