Call For Papers
9th International KES Conference on Agents and Multi-agent Systems – Technologies &
Hilton Sorrento Palace, Sorrento, Italy
17th-19th June 2015
KES-AMSTA-2015 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
Agents and multi-agent systems are related to a modern software paradigm which has
long been recognised 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 and SEEL
(Smart Education and E-Learning). Registration gives access to all of these conferences,
together with a paper published in one set of proceedings. The conference proceedings will be
published in the KES Springer series 'Smart Innovations, Systems and Technologies' and
submitted for indexing in Scopus and CPCI which is part of Web of Science.
