CALL FOR PAPERS
13th EUROPEAN CONFERENCE ON MULTI-AGENT SYSTEMS
December 17-18, Athens, Greece
In the last two decades, we have seen a significant increase of interest in agent-based computing. This field is now set to become one of the key intelligent systems technologies in the 21st century. The aim of the EUMAS series is to provide a forum for academics and practitioners in Europe at which current research and application issues are presented and discussed.
EUMAS 2015, the 13th installment of the conference series follows the tradition of previous editions (Oxford 2003, Barcelona 2004, Brussels 2005, Lisbon 2006, Hammamet 2007, Bath 2008, Agia Napa 2009, Paris 2010, Maastricht 2011, Dublin 2012, Toulouse 2013, Prague 2014), and aims to encourage and support activity in the research and development of multi-agent systems, in academic and industrial efforts.
The conference is primarily intended as a European forum for anybody interested in the theory and practice of autonomous agents and multi-agent system can meet, present challenges, preliminary and mature research results in an open and informal environment. To attract students as well as experienced researchers, preliminary as well as mature work, EUMAS 2015 offers three submission types and formal proceedings. Also, post-publication in form of a special issues of a high-quality journal in the area are planned.
This year EUMAS is co-located with the 3rd edition of the International Agreement Technologies (AT) Conference. This will allow us to produce a rich and inspiring program of high-quality papers reporting original results. Sessions of both conferences will be open to all participants of EUMAS and AT.
EUMAS 2015 is a designated event of the European Association of Multi-Agent Systems (EURAMAS): http://www.euramas.org

EUMAS 2015 welcomes both original, unpublished papers, as well as papers that are under submission or have been published in a relevant conference, conference or journal. We specially invite submissions by students who we think will receive valuable feedback from the discussion-oriented focus of the conference.
Authors are invited to submit papers in the following three categories:
(1) Full research papers of 12 to 15 pages, describing original and unpublished work. Simultaneous submission to another venue is not allowed.
(2) Short papers of 6 to 8 pages reporting on original and unpublished work in progress or system descriptions. Simultaneous submission to another venue is not allowed.
(3) Full research papers up to 15 pages reporting on interesting and relevant work that has been published (or accepted for publication) in the last 18 months.
Each submission will be peer-reviewed. All submissions should be formatted following Springer's LNCS format. For templates and instructions for authors, see http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html.
We request the submission of title and abstract prior to paper submission to support the tight schedule of reviewing. Authors must submit their abstracts and papers through the EUMAS 2015 Easychair submission site https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=eumas15.
We plan EUMAS proceedings to be published as a Springer LNCS/LNAI (post-)proceedings volume (www.springer.com/lncs). Full research papers and short papers describing original, unpublished work (categories 1 and 2) accepted at EUMAS 2015 will be included in the proceedings.
We will give authors of accepted papers the opportunity to revise the camera-ready version of their paper(s) in order to incorporate feedback received upon the presentation of their work during the conference.
Journal Special Issue
We also plan to publish a special issue of an ISI-ranked journal consisting of a small number of best papers extended with additional unpublished original work and fully refereed according to usual journal standards. After the conference, authors of selected papers will be invited to submit to the special issue.
