ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
Holonic and multi-agent systems provide a novel paradigm for managing, modelling and supporting complex systems. This concept has proved to be successful in number of industrial domains such as manufacturing, real-time control, supply chain management, resource allocation and production planning/scheduling, air traffic.

The workshop aims to bring together researchers active in the area of holonic and multi-agent systems together with key engineers and industrial decision makers to share their views and experience in design, development and applying holonic and multi-agent systems for industrial problems.

SUGGESTED TOPICS (but not limited to):
• Theoretical backgrounds behind holonic/agent concepts
• Industrial applications of holonic and multi-agent systems (case-studies are specially appreciated), applications in logistics and smart grids
• Specification of holonic and agent-based architectures and design methodologies
• Communication principles and standards
• Virtual organisations & holonic factories - reconfigurable factories
• Agent-based system integration
• Modeling and simulation tools
• Reconfiguration tasks, coalition formation, knowledge ontologies
• Visions and future trends of holonic and multi-agent systems
• Standardization issues, security issues, and industrial needs
• Obstacles and barriers to industrial and logistic deployment

CONTRIBUTIONS
Authors are invited to submit research contributions or critiques of practical experience. Submitted papers must be written in English and must not exceed six (6) pages. Over-length submissions will be rejected without a review. Submitted papers must be formatted according to the camera-ready style for ECAI'14 and submitted electronically through the ECAI'14 submission site.
