Call For Papers

EUMAS 2016
December 15-16, Valencia, Spain

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.

EUMAS 2016, the 14th instalment 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, Athens 2015). EUMAS 2016 aims to provide a forum for academics and practitioners in Europe at which current research and applications of multi-agent systems, both in academic and industrial efforts, are presented and discussed. EUMAS 2016 is a designated event of the European Association of Multi-Agent Systems (EURAMAS):

This year EUMAS is co-located with the 4th edition of the International
Agreement Technologies (AT) Conference. This will allow us to produce a rich and inspiring program of high-quality papers. Sessions of both conferences will be open to all participants of EUMAS and AT.

The conference is primarily intended as a forum where anybody interested in the theory and practice of autonomous agents and multi-agent systems can meet and present challenges, preliminary and mature research results in an open and informal environment. We especially invite submissions of blue sky ideas and on-going work that we think will receive valuable feedback from the discussion-oriented focus of the conference and could stimulate new collaborations and/or synergies.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Action and Planning
- Adaptation and Learning
- Agent Architectures
- Agent Programming Languages
- Agent Development Methodologies and Tools
- Agent-Based Simulation
- Agent-oriented Software Engineering
- Applications of Multi-agent Systems
- Argumentation
- Biologically inspired approaches
- Cognitive Models
- Collective and Swarm Intelligence
- Collective Intentionality
- Communication, Cooperation, and Coordination
- Economic Models
- Formal Modelling
- Game-Theoretic Methods
- Logics for Multi-Agent Systems
- Negotiation
- Self-organisation
- Semantic Web Agents
- Socio-technical Systems
- Theories of Agency
- Trust and Reputation
- Verification
- Virtual Agents

EUMAS 2016 welcomes both original, unpublished papers, as well as papers that are under submission or have been published in a relevant conference, conference or journal.

EUMAS 2016 offers three types of submissions:
(1) Full original papers of 12 to 15 pages, describing work that has not been previously published, accepted for publication, or is not currently under review by another conference or journal.
(2) Short original papers of 6 to 8 pages reporting on views, ambitions or work in progress that has not been previously published, accepted for publication, or is not currently under review by another conference or journal.
(3) Published 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 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 2016 Easychair submission site

We are currently negotiating the publication of EUMAS proceedings as a Springer LNCS/LNAI (post-proceedings volume).

The best original papers will be invited for a special issue in the Knowledge Engineering Review (JCR Impact Factor 2015: 1.039)


- Deadline for registering abstracts: September 7, 2016
- Deadline for papers submission: September 9, 2016
- Final decisions to authors: October 7, 2016
- Camera Ready Papers: October 14, 2016
- Conference: 15- 16 December, 2016

All deadlines are at 23:59 UTC-12, i.e. before midnight on the respective date anywhere in the world.
