Call For Papers

HoloMAS 2015

7th International Conference on Industrial Applications of Holonic and Multi-Agent Systems
September 2-4, 2015, Valencia, Spain

in conjunction with DEXA 2015 events

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

The conference aims to bring together researchers active in the area of Holonic and Multi-agent Systems as well as Service-Oriented Architectures together with key engineers and industrial decision makers to share their views and experience in design, development and application of Holonic and Multi-agent Systems for industrial problems.

Technical co-sponsorship of the IEEE SMC is expected.

SUGGESTED TOPICS (but not limited to):
• Theoretical backgrounds behind holonic/agent concepts, game-theoretic approaches
• Industrial applications of holonic, multi-agent, and service-oriented architectures (case-studies are specially appreciated) including applications in smart grids, smart cities, and logistics
• Design principles, methodologies and applications of cyber-physical systems
• Specification of holonic, agent-based, and service-oriented architectures and design methodologies including approaches for their fusion
• Semantic Web technologies, Knowledge Ontologies and Big Data in agent-based and SOA-based industrial systems
• Communication principles and standards
• Virtual organisations & holonic factories - reconfigurable factories
• Agent-based system integration
• Modeling and simulation tools
• Reconfiguration tasks, coalition formation
• Novel application areas (health-care, environmental protection, government, humanitarian missions, smart grids, and smart cities)
• Visions and future trends of holonic, multi-agent systems, and SOA-based systems
• Standardization issues, security issues, industrial and logistic needs
• Obstacles and barriers to industrial deployment

Authors are invited to submit research contributions or critiques of practical experience. Papers (in English) should not exceed 10 pages in Springer Verlag format. Authors are requested to submit their papers electronically to the conference web site. All accepted conference papers will be published in the conference proceedings in "Lecture Notes in Computer Science" (LNCS) series by Springer Verlag.
