MATES 2015: Smart Things Working Together
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 agent-based computing with prototyped or fielded systems in various application domains.
In 2015 the MATES conference will be co-located with the 45th Symposium of the German Computer Science Association GI (INFORMATIK 2015).
Moreover, the event will also host a Doctoral Consortium to support young researchers of this broad field in their PhD studies.
Topics of Interest
The motto of the 2015 edition of MATES will be "SMART THINGS WORKING TOGETHER". It refers to the concept of agents as active, autonomous system components that form self-organizing, adaptive systems through coordination and cooperation.
Thus, contributions that address topics such as the Internet of Things, Industry 4.0, or Cyber-Physical Systems are of special interest for and particularly welcome to MATES 2015.
Beyond this, MATES 2015 covers all areas of intelligent agents and multiagent system technologies. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Multiagent platform 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 teams, 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 coordination (discovery, composition, negotiation, execution)
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
Standards for agents and multiagent systems
Prototyped or fielded agent-based applications in various domains (e.g. e-business, e-health, e-government, automotive, smart city, smart grids, renewable energy).
