Fourth Workshop on Agents and Robots for reliable Engineered Autonomy (AREA)

Co-located with ECAI 2024
Workshop: 19th October - 20th October 2024 (exact day TBA)

Conference: 19th - 24th October 2024
Santiago de Compostela, Spain

Workshop website:



Paper Submission Deadline: 18th June 2024 (AoE, UTC-12)
Paper Notification: 18th July 2024 (AoE, UTC-12)


This workshop aims to bring together researchers from the autonomous agents, robotics, and software engineering communities, since combining knowledge from these research areas may lead to innovative approaches that can solve complex real-world problems related to autonomous robotic systems. Therefore, we encourage submissions that combine agents, robots, software engineering, and verification, but we also welcome papers focused on one of these areas, as long as their applicability to the other areas is explicit.


The main topics include but are not limited to:
- Agent-based modular architectures applicable to robots
- Agent oriented software engineering to model high-level control in robotic development
- Agent programming languages and tools for developing robotic or intelligent autonomous systems
- Coordination, interaction, and negotiation protocols for agents and robots
- Distributed problem solving and automated planning in autonomous systems
- Engineering reliable interactions between humans and autonomous robots or agents
- Fault tolerance, health-management, and long-term autonomy
- Neuro-symbolic artificial intelligence
- Real world applications of autonomous agents and multi-agent systems in robotics
- Runtime verification of autonomous agents and robotic systems
- Task and resource allocation in multi-robot systems
- Verification and validation of autonomous systems


Types of submissions:
- full-length research paper
- short paper
- ECAI 2024 review transfer (resubmission of papers rejected from the main conference, decision will be made purely on the basis of the reviews written for the main conference and how well the paper aligns with the scope of the workshop)

Full-length research papers must not exceed sixteen (16) pages single column excluding references and appendices and short papers must not exceed eight (8) pages single column excluding references and appendices. All submissions must be in English and PDF format. Each submission will receive at least three single-blind reviews. All papers should be original and not be submitted elsewhere. The review process is single-blind: submissions should not be blind, reviewers will be.

The AREA 2024 workshop is going to be an in-person event (following ECAI 2024 guidelines). At least one author of each accepted paper has to register to the workshop (via ECAI 2024 website).

The proceedings of the workshop will be published with Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS, Formatting guidelines should follow LNCS style:

After the workshop, we will consider applying for a special issue (journal to be selected later), where revised selected and extended papers can be published.


The event is planned as a one day workshop, with a duration of approximately eight hours (four in the morning and four in the afternoon).
