Call For Papers

10th International KES Conference on
Agents and Multi-agent Systems:
Technologies & Applications (AMSTA-16)

Hotel Botanico & The Oriental Spa Garden, Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife,
Canary Islands, Spain on 15th-17th June 2016

KES-AMSTA-2016 is an international scientific conference for discussing and publishing innovative research in the field of agent and multi-agent systems and technologies applicable in the Digital and Knowledge Economy. The aim of the conference is to provide an internationally
respected forum for researchers and industrial practitioners to discuss their latest and planned future work, possible influence to current and future research and industrial communities and/or impact to our societies.

Agents and multi-agent systems is a modern and promising software paradigm for constructing autonomous, complex and intelligent systems.
Via our distinguishing keynote talks, oral and poster presentations, the conference will provide an excellent opportunity for researchers to discuss modern approaches and techniques for agent and multi-agent systems and their applications. In addition, as a part of this conference, we invite multi-interdisciplinary researchers that contribute theories, technologies and applications in the new Digital and Knowledge Economy.

The conference will be co-located under the KES Smart Digital Futures umbrella with our other Intelligent Systems conferences: IIMSS, IDT, SEEL and the newly added InMED (Innovation in Medicine and Healthcare).Registration gives access to all of these conferences, together with a paper published in one set of proceedings.

The conference proceedings will be published by Springer as book chapters in a volume of the KES Smart Innovation Systems and Technologies series, submitted for indexing in Scopus and Thomson-Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI) and the Web of Science.

For more information, please see the Smart Digital Futures 2016 website: for more information.

Conference Scope

Agent and Multi-agent Systems

A software agent is a program which performs actions defined by the user. Multi-agent systems consist of autonomous and collaborative agents that have a particular degree of mobility and intelligence. It is intended to provide the researchers an opportunity to exchange ideas, knowledge, and experience, as well as to discuss current development and explore trends in agent systems. This call is addressed to scientists and engineers from academic or industrial environments, who design, develop and implement software agents in different
areas and applications.

New Digital and Knowledge Economy

The modern economy is driven by technologies and knowledge. Digital technologies can free, shift and multiply choices, often intruding on the space of other industries, by providing new ways of conducting business operations and creating values for customers and companies. Examples of technologies are mobile and cloud computing, big data analysis, business intelligence, artificial intelligence, social systems, computer embedded systems and nature inspired manufacturing, etc. We would therefore love to hear from both the research and industrial communities on their latest work on innovative technologies and applications that is potentially disruptive to industries.

Furthermore, technologies need to work well with innovative business models to create wealth and welfare. In an attempt to bring the two communities together, we would therefore love to hear from business communities on their experiences of adopting technologies when creating new business models.

Industrial Track

The purpose of the Industrial Track is to promote research in our aforementioned topic areas and foster scientific exchange between researchers, practitioners, scientists, students, and engineers in multi-agent systems and disruptive technologies. We particularly recognise the importance of inter-disciplinary work to create today's Digital and Knowledge Economy. Standard length scientific papers,
overview of research conducted in a company and short visionary paper and poster presentation are therefore most welcome.

Invited Sessions

An invited session consists of a presentation session of 6 to 12 or more papers on a specific conference topic, organised as half or full day mini-conference. We invite senior scientists who have a special interest in a specific conference topic to take responsibility for an invited session, gathering papers from a range of research expertise around the world. If you would like to arrange an Invited Session, please contact:

Here is a list of the approved sessions so far:

IS01: Business Process Management (BPM)
IS02: Agent-Based Modeling And Simulation (ABMS)
IS03: Anthropic Oriented Computing (AOC)
IS04: LP:ABA - Learning Paradigms and Applications: Agent-based Approach
