Call For Papers

We are pleased to invite participation in KES-AMSTA 2012 organized by the
KES International and University of Zagreb, Faculty of Electrical Engineering
and Computing. The conference will take place in Dubrovnik, Croatia one of
the most prominent tourist destinations in Europe.
The conference will consist of keynote talks, oral and poster presentations,
invited sessions and workshops, on the technologies and applications of agent
and multi-agent systems, as well as intelligent systems in the field of social
networks, self-organisation and trust.

-----------------------
SCOPE OF THE CONFERENCE
-----------------------

AGENT SYSTEMS
Formal models of agency. Agent architectures. BDI architecture. Learning,
evolution, and adaptation. Perception and action. Communication: languages,
semantics, pragmatics, protocols, and conversations. Knowledge representation.
Computational complexity. Autonomous or humanoid robots. Social robots and
robot teams. Autonomy aspect. Cognitive models, including emotions and philosophies.
Embodied and believable agents. Emergent behaviour. Ontologies.

MULTI-AGENT SYSTEMS
Cooperative distributed problem solving. Task and resource allocation.
Mechanism design, auctions, and game theory. Modelling other agents and self.
Multi-agent planning. Negotiation protocols. Multi-agent learning. Conflict
resolution. Trust and reputation management. Privacy, safety and security.
Scalability, robustness and dependability. Social and organizational structures.
Verification and validation. Novel computing paradigms (autonomic, grid, P2P,
ubiquitous computing). Brokering and matchmaking. Agent-oriented software
engineering, including implementation languages and frameworks. Mobile agents.
Performance, scalability, robustness, and dependability. Verification and validation.
E-business agents. Pervasive computing. Privacy, safety, and security.

TOOLS AND APPLICATIONS
Simulation systems. Web services and service-oriented computing. Artificial social
systems. Autonomic computing. Case studies and reports on deployments. Computational
infrastructures. Information retrieval. Web services and semantic web. E-learning
systems. E-institutions. E-commerce.

***FEATURE TOPICS***
Intelligent technologies and applications in the area of e-health, social networking,
self-organizing systems, economics and trust management.

PAPER SUBMISSION
----------------

Submitted papers should be prepared in LNCS/LNAI style and should not exceed 10 pages.
All accepted papers must be presented by one of the authors who must register for
the conference and pay the fee. To ensure high quality, all papers will be thoroughly
reviewed by the KES-AMSTA-12 International Programme Committee.

----------------------
CONFERENCE PUBLICATION
----------------------

The conference proceedings are planned to be published by Springer-Verlag in LNCS/LNAI
series (subject to confirmation). Extended versions of selected papers will be
considered for publication in special issues to be included in KES Journal,
Int. Journal of Intelligent Information and Database Systems and in several journals
indexed by ISI, EI, INSPEC, etc.

---------------------------------------
CALL FOR INVITED SESSIONS AND WORKSHOPS
---------------------------------------

We invite researchers on hot topics and fresh ideas in the field to organize
invited sessions, or parallel workshops of a half or full day, gathering a minimum
of 5 papers of at least 3 research teams in the world. Please, contact the Conference
Secretariat enclosing the title and content of the proposed session, and tentatively
involved research teams. We also welcome suggestions for other activities that will
appeal to our delegates.

---------------------------------------
CALL FOR DOCTORAL TRACK
---------------------------------------

Doctoral Track offers PhD students means to publish their paper in the well known
LNCS/LNAI series; a dedicated feedback from prominent professors, experienced
researchers and experts in their field of research; an international forum to present their
research in a poster session; a dedicated LinkedIn group as a network building platform
and a friendly atmosphere to meet other PhD students and researchers.
