Call For Papers

Preliminary Call for papers

A M E C / T A D A 2017

19th International Workshop on
Agent-Mediated Electronic Commerce and
Trading Agents Design and Analysis
Held in conjunction with AAMAS 2017
May, 2017, Sao Paulo, Brazil


This year, AMEC/TADA workshop encourages submission of preliminary work, novel works and papers to be submitted or in preparation for submission to other major venues in our field. Papers submitted elsewhere will not be considered for any archival post-proceedings publication. The sole criteria for acceptance of any paper will be scientific quality and relevance, and interest to the workshop audience. The design and analysis of electronic commerce systems and automated trading agents involves finding solutions to a large and diverse array of problems, concerning individual agent behaviors, interaction, and collective behavior. A wide variety of electronic commerce scenarios and systems, and multi-agent approaches to these, have been studied in recent years. These studies suggest models that support the design and the analysis at both the level of the single agent and the level of the multi-agent system.
The primary goal of this workshop is to continue to bring together novel work or papers presented/to be submitted at a conference elsewhere, from diverse fields as Computer Science, Game Theory, Economics, Artificial Intelligence and Distributed Systems that focus on modelling, implementation, and evaluation of computational trading agents and markets. We particularly encourage submissions that address the computational and practical aspects of agent-mediated electronic commerce and automated trading agents along the following (non-limiting) topics:
- Agency and contract theory in e-commerce
- AI and autonomous agent systems in e-commerce
- Algorithmic mechanism design
- Auction and negotiation technology
- Automated shopping, trading, and contract management
- Computational aspects of economics, game theory, and voting
- Empirical evaluation of human-agent trading
- Experience with e-commerce systems and markets
- Formation of supply chains, coalitions, and virtual enterprises
- Languages for describing agents, goods, services, and contracts
- Learning and Intelligence aspects of trading agents
- Mechanisms for unreliable, dynamic and asynchronous environments
- Peer-to-peer, grid, and other open distributed systems
- Prediction/information markets
- Preferences and decision theory
- Recommendation, reputation, and trust systems
- Design of trading agents in decentralised power markets
- Incentive mechanisms for smart energy grids
- Software and systems requirements, architectures, and performance
- TAC agents or analysis of TAC competitions

Furthermore, in 2017, AMEC/TADA aims to explore some new frontiers in electronic commerce research, including (but not limited to):
- Mobile commerce
- Mobile advertising
- Advertising and trading through social networks
- Service-oriented agent technologies

*Important dates and deadlines

Deadline for the submission of full papers: February 13
Notification of acceptance/rejection: March 2
Workshop: May 8 or May 9


Publication is optional. Therefore, as this year, AMEC/TADA workshop encourages beyond completed works also submission of preliminary work and papers to be submitted or in preparation for submission to other major venues in our field; while all papers will be included in the AAMAS workshop (non-archival) proceedings, only accepted papers which will not have been published and which their authors have explicitly expressed their willing to be included in Springer LNBIP volume will be included in this volume. The published papers will have a format similar to previous workshops in the AMEC/TADA series.

*Submission instructions

Authors should submit full papers electronically in PS or PDF format on EasyChair ( Papers must be written in English, with a maximum length of 14 pages (excluding references). Please format papers according to the Springer LNCS Style ( Templates for Word and Latex are available. The receipt of submissions will be acknowledged by email.
Submitted papers will be reviewed by the program committee.
Note: Workshop attendees need not register for the main AAMAS conference, but are encouraged to do so.
