Call For Papers

The 2nd International Workshop on Infrastructures and Tools for Multiagent Systems
ITMAS 2011
Web page:

Selected extended papers will be published in a SPECIAL ISSUE of the
*Engineering Applications of Artificial Intelligence* journal (JCR 1.444)

To be held with AAMAS 2011 (
2 - 6 May, 2011, Taipei, Taiwan

ITMAS aims at bringing together leading researchers from both academia and industry to discuss issues on the design and implementation of infrastructures and tools for Multiagent Systems. When developing applications based on Multiagent Systems, developers and users demand infrastructures and tools which support essential features in Multiagent Systems (such as agent organizations, mobility, etc.) and facilitate the system design, management, execution and evaluation. Agent infrastructures are usually built using other technologies such as grid systems, service-oriented architectures, P2P networks, etc. In this sense, the integration and interoperability of such technologies in Multiagent Systems is also a challenging issue in the area of both tools and infrastructures for Multiagent Systems. A long term goal is the industrial development of infrastructures for building highly scalable applications comprising pre-existing agents that must be organized or orchestrated.

In order for Multiagent Systems to be included in real domains such as media and Internet, logistics, e-commerce and health care, infrastructures and tools for Multiagent Systems should provide efficiency, scalability, security, management, monitorization and other features related to building real applications.

We encourage the submission of papers describing any kind of infrastructures and tools that are used to provide support for Multiagent Systems. We are particularly interested in infrastructures and tools that allow agent-based systems to be adopted by designers and programmers both in academia and industry.

Specific topics for this workshop include, but are not limited to:
* Agent Infrastructures
* Agent Communication Technologies
* Interoperability and Standards
* Integration of technologies to support Multiagent Systems
* Integration of Agent Infrastructures with non-agent Infrastructures
* Efficiency and Scalability Evaluation
* Agent Infrastructure Benchmarks
* Security, Privacy and Identity Management in Multiagent Systems
* Secure Infrastructures and Tools for Multiagent Systems
* Infrastructures and tools supporting Social and Organizational Models
* Infrastructures and tools supporting Trust and Reputation Models
* Infrastructures and tools supporting Intelligent Virtual Environments
* Infrastructures and tools supporting Electronic Institutions
* Infrastructures for agent-based Service-Oriented Systems
* Design, Management and Monitoring tools for Multiagent Systems
* Models and Architectures for Designing Agent Infrastructures
* Coordination infrastructures for Multiagent Systems
* Environment infrastructures for Multiagent Systems
* Infrastructure support to Model-driven Engineering in Multiagent Systems
* Infrastructure mechanisms for self-organising Multiagent Systems
* Information Retrieval Tools for Multiagent Systems
* Semantic Web Tools for Multiagent Systems
* Mobile Agent Technologies
* Industry implementations of Multiagent Systems
* Experiences using Infrastructures and Tools for Multiagent Systems
* Infrastructures and Tools for Biomedical Multiagent Systems

Papers will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 reviewers from the Program Committee. Criteria for the selection of papers will include: high quality, clear presentation, novelty of research, relevance to the topics, coverage of relevant state of the art and the practical implementation of the infrastructures and tools presented.

Submissions must follow the Springer LNCS paper format and should be a maximum of 15 pages.

Papers must be submitted in pdf format via the conference management system, available at:

Workshop proceedings will be published as part of an official joint AAMAS 2011 workshop proceedings in the prestigious Lecture Notes in Computer Science published by Springer. At least one author for each accepted paper must register for the paper to be included in the proceedings.

Selected papers will be invited to submit extended and revised versions to a special issue in the Engineering Applications of Artificial Intelligence journal which is ranked with a JCR Impact factor 1.444 (2009).
