MATES 2009 : Seventh German Conference on Multi-Agent System Technologies
Call For Papers
MATES 2009 - Seventh German Conference on Multi-Agent System Technologies
September 9 - 11, 2009 in Hamburg, Germany
The German conference on Multi-Agent System Technologies (MATES) provides an
interdisciplinary forum for researchers, users, and developers, to present and
discuss latest advances in research work, as well as prototyped or fielded
systems of intelligent agents and multi-agent systems.
MATES 2009 will be colocated with the Tenth International Workshop on
Computational Logic in Multi-Agent Systems (CLIMA'09) and the Fifth
International Workshop on Modeling of Objects, Components, and Agents
(MOCA'09). The participants of MATES 2009 will also have full access to the
concurrently running programs of these events.
TOPICS OF INTEREST
Topics of interest of MATES 2009 include all aspects of agent-oriented
computing and agent technologies: basic and applied research; reports on
experiences with deployed real-world applications; and detailed visions and
challenges for mid- to long-term progress in the field grounded in experience
reports or analyses of the overall technical, economical, and social context.
MATES 2009 encourages specifically submissions from an emerging area of
interest with a close connection to multi-agent systems: self-organizing
systems and autonomic computing.
MATES 2009 will feature an exhibition of tools, prototype technologies,
showcases of practical applications, and business cases of agent and
multi-agent technology at the conference venue. The exhibition allows
submitting an exhibition paper and the possibility to demonstrate the
practical work at the conference at a poster stand.
DOCTORAL MENTORING PROGRAM
MATES 2009 will include a doctoral mentoring program. This program will
provide an opportunity for PhD students to interact closely with established
researchers in their fields, to receive feedback on their work and to get
advice on managing their careers.
All papers must be written in English and submitted in PDF format.
The paper style should follow the Springer LNCS formatting.
MATES'09 welcomes two kinds of submissions:
* Scientific paper contributions (must not exceed 12 pages)
* Exhibition paper contributions (must not exceed 10 pages)
Submissions should be uploaded at:
Boths kinds of papers will be included in the MATES proceedings to be published
in the Springer series of Lecture Notes on Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) and
for both kinds of papers the following dates apply:
* Submissions: April 4, 2009
* Notification of authors: May 22, 2009
* Camera-ready papers: June 19, 2009
* Conference: September 9-11, 2009
