Call For Papers


8th International Workshop on Multi-Agent Systems and Simulation (MAS&S'14)

Warsaw, Poland, September 7-10, 2014


We would like to cordially invite you to consider contributing a paper to MAS&S 2014 - held as a part of the Federated Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems (FedCSIS 2014).

FedCSIS is an annual international multi-conference organized by the Polish Information Processing Society (PTI) in technical cooperation with the IEEE Region 8, IEEE Computer Society, IEEE Poland Section Computer Society Chapter, IEEE Poland (Gdansk) Section Computer Society Chapter, ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing, ACM Lodz Chapter, International Federation for Information Processing, European Alliance for Innovation, Informatics Europe, IEEE-CIS Poland Section Chapter, Asociación de Técnicos de Informática, Committee of Computer Science of the Polish Academy of Sciences, Polish Society for Business Informatics, Polish Chamber of Information Technology and Telecommunications, Polish Chamber of Commerce for High Technology and Eastern Cluster ICT Poland, Mazovia Cluster ICT.

Multi-agent systems (MASs) provide powerful models for representing both real-world systems and applications with an appropriate degree of complexity and dynamics. Several research and industrial experiences have already shown that the use of MASs offers advantages in a wide range of application domains (e.g. financial, economic, social, logistic, chemical, engineering). When MASs represent software applications to be effectively delivered, they need to be validated and evaluated before their deployment and execution, thus methodologies that support validation and evaluation through simulation of the MAS under development are highly required. In other emerging areas (e.g. ACE, ACF), MASs are designed for representing systems at different levels of complexity through the use of autonomous, goal-driven and interacting entities organized into societies which exhibit emergent properties The agent-based model of a system can then be executed to simulate the behavior of the complete system so that knowledge of the behaviors of the entities (micro-level) produce an understanding of the overall outcome at the system-level (macro-level). In both cases (MASs as software applications and MASs as models for the analysis of complex systems), simulation plays a crucial role that needs to be further investigated.


MAS&S'14 aims at providing a forum for discussing recent advances in Engineering Complex Systems by exploiting Agent-Based Modeling and Simulation. In particular, the areas of interest are the following (although this list should not be considered as exclusive):

- Agent-based simulation techniques and methodologies
- Discrete-event simulation of Multi-Agent Systems
- Simulation as validation tool for the development process of MAS
- Agent-oriented methodologies incorporating simulation tools
- MAS simulation driven by formal models
- MAS simulation toolkits and frameworks
- Testing vs. simulation of MAS
- Industrial case studies based on MAS and simulation/testing
- Agent-based Modeling and Simulation (ABMS)
- Agent Computational Economics (ACE)
- Agent Computational Finance (ACF)
- Agent-based simulation of networked systems
- Scalability in agent-based simulation


Papers should be submitted by April 23, 2014 (strict deadline). Preprints will be published on a USB memory stick provided to the FedCSIS participants. Only papers presented during the conference will be submitted to the IEEE for inclusion in the Xplore Digital Library. Furthermore, proceedings, published in a volume with ISBN and ISSN numbers will posted at the conference WWW site. Moreover, most Events' organizers arrange quality journals, edited volumes, etc. and may invite selected extended and revised papers for post-conference publications (information can be found at the websites of individual events).
