MATES 2014
12th German Conference on Multiagent System Technologies

Held in conjunction with INFORMATIK'2014
Stuttgart, Germany, September 22-26, 2014
Held in cooperation with KI'2014


The MATES conference series aims at the promotion of and the cross-
fertilization between theory and application of intelligent agents and
multiagent systems. It provides an interdisciplinary forum for
researchers and members of business and industry to present and discuss
latest advances in multiagent systems and agent-based computing with
prototyped or fielded systems in various application domains.

In 2014, the MATES conference will be co-located with the 44th Symposium
of the German Computer Science Association GI (INFORMATIK 2014) and will be
held in cooperation with the 37th German Conference on Artificial
Intelligence (KI 2014).".

Moreover, the event will also host a Doctoral Consortium to support
young researchers of this broad field in their PhD studies.

In addition to the main track, an Innovative Applications Track is
planned focusing on promising areas of agent and multiagent
technologies, such as automation technology, traffic and transport, and
energy / smart grid.

Accepted papers will be published as a volume of the Lecture Notes in
Computer Science series by Springer-Verlag.


MATES 2014 covers all areas of intelligent agents and multiagent systems
and technologies. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Multiagent platforms and tools
* Agent-oriented software engineering, model-driven design of
multiagent systems
* Agent communication languages
* Autonomous robots and robot teams
* Advanced theories of collaboration: Modelling and formation of agent
groups, coalitions, and organizations
* Multiagent systems: Conventions, norms, institutions; trust and reputation
* Adaptive agents and multiagent learning
* Multiagent planning and scheduling
* Agent-based information retrieval
* Agents and P2P computing
* Agent-based service
* Agent-based simulation of complex systems and applications
* Embodied conversational actors and believable agents, and user modelling
* Hybrid human and agent societies
* Semantic Web (services) and agents
* Agents for the Social Web
* Agents for the Internet of Services
* Agents for the Internet of Things, pervasive computing
* Agents for cloud computing
* Mobile agents
* Standards for agents and multiagent systems
* Prototyped or fielded agent-based applications in various domains
(e.g. e-business, e-health, e-government, automotive,
automation/manufacturing/industry, smart city,
smart grids, renewable energy).


MATES welcomes the submission of theoretical, experimental,
methodological as well as application-oriented papers with a clear
research focus on the topics outlined above. Each paper will be
evaluated by three members of the PC. Papers that present a valuable
idea that needs further development can be accepted as a short paper.


Papers must be up to 14 pages, including the text, figures,
and references. The submissions must be formatted according to the
Springer Verlag LNCS style. PDF format is required. Papers can be
submitted via EasyChair 'MATES 2014' at


Accepted and revised papers will be published in the Lecture Notes in
Computer Science volume by Springer-Verlag.


Paper submission deadline: April 30, 2014
Notification of acceptance: June 6, 2014
Camera ready papers: June 29, 2014
Conference: September 22-26, 2014
