Call For Papers

8th International KES Conference on Agents and Multi-agent Systems – Technologies &
Applications (AMSTA-14)
Chania - Crete, Greece 18 - 20 June 2014
Proceedings published by Springer

KES-AMSTA-2014 is an international scientific conference for research in the field of
agent and multi-agent systems. The aim of the conference is to provide an internationally
respected forum for scientific research in the technologies and applications of agent and
multi-agent systems.

Agents and multi-agent systems are related to a modern software paradigm which has
long been recognized as a promising technology for constructing autonomous, complex
and intelligent systems. This conference will provide an excellent opportunity for researchers
to discuss modern approaches and techniques for agent and multi-agent systems and their

The conference will be co-located under the KES Smart Digital Futures umbrella
with our other Intelligent Systems conferences: IIMSS and IDT along with the new STET
(Smart Technology-based Education and Training) conference. Registration gives access
to all of these conferences, together with a paper published in one set of proceedings
Please see the Smart Digital Futures website

The conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the series Advances in Intelligent
and Soft Computing indexed by ISI Proceedings, DBLP. Ulrich's, EI-Compendex, SCOPUS,
Zentralblatt Math, MetaPress, and Springerlink.
