7th International Workshop on Multi-Agent Systems Technology and Semantics
MASTS 2015

October 7-9, 2015, Guimarães, Portugal 

in conjunction with
the 9th International Symposium on Intelligent Distributed Computing

The 7th Workshop on Multi-Agent Systems Technology and Semantics (MASTS 2015) will bring together researchers and practioners who are working on or are interested in exploring novel approaches to multi-agent systems development and the use of multi-agent systems technology in building innovative applications.

Following the success of the previous 5 editions of MASTS, the goal of the workshop is to present and discuss ideas and developments related to two converging areas of research and applications, namely multi-agent systems and semantic technology. The workshop aims to focus on issues such as: the semantic role of agents in building complex distributed applications, the collective and cognitive dimensions of the multi-agent systems paradigm, the use of agents in the development and deployment of semantic web services, the utilization of intelligent agents and semantics in the development of ambient intelligence applications. Debates are expected on directions and possibilities of future research in the domain.

MASTS 2015 will be held in conjunction with the 9th International Symposium on Intelligent Distributed Computing (IDC'2015) in Guimarães, Portugal, October 7-9, 2015,

Call for Papers

The workshop welcomes high-quality papers including, but not limited to the following topics:

Technologies for modeling and development of agent based systems
- novel architectures for multiagent systems
- semantic based agent interaction protocols and negotiation
- multi-agent planning
- multi-agent coordination techniques
- multi-agent learning
- self-organizing multi-agent systems
- emerging behaviour in agent systems

Agent systems and semantics
- the role of shared ontologies in agent systems
- agent systems and Semantic Web technologies
- ontologies for agent cooperation and coordination
- semantic interoperability
- semantic agent communities and applications

Novel agent applications
