Aims and Scope
==============
The MATES conference aims at the promotion of and the cross-fertilization between theory and application of intelligent agents and multiagent systems (MAS). 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.
MATES 2017 will offer a competitive set of special topical sessions, PhD mentoring track, invited keynotes by distinguished experts, and issues a Best Paper Award.
The proceedings are published by Springer in its LNAI (Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence) subseries of the LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science) series.


Topics of Interest
==================
MATES 2017 covers all areas of intelligent agents and multiagent system technologies. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Multiagent platforms and tools
- Agent communication languages
- Validation and verification of (multi)agent technologies
- Agent-oriented software engineering, model-driven design of MAS
- Standards for agents and MAS
- MAS: Conventions, norms, institutions, trust and reputation
- Advanced theories of collaboration: Modelling and formation of agent teams, groups, coalitions, and organizations
- Adaptive agents and multiagent learning
- Agent-based simulation of complex systems and applications
- Agent-based modeling and social simulation
- Mobile agents
- Autonomous robots and robot teams
- Human-agent teamwork (Humans, software agents, robots, animals, animoids)
- Embodied conversational actors and believable agents, and user modelling
- Recommender agents
- Agent-based planning and scheduling
- Agent-based information retrieval
- Agent-based distributed data mining
- Agent-based service discovery, composition, negotiation
- Agents for the semantic Web
- Agents for the social Web
- Agents for the Internet of Services
- Agents for the Internet of Things, pervasive computing
- Agents for cloud computing
- Ethical aspects of (multi)agent systems design and deployment
- Prototyped or fielded agent-based applications in various domains (e.g. e-business, e-health, e-government, automotive, smart city, smart grids, renewable energy).


MATES PhD mentoring track
=========================
The MATES PhD mentoring (doctoral consortium) is meant to support PhD students working in the area of web intelligence. It offers a platform to researchers in all stages of their PhD studies to present and discuss their ideas in a professional academic environment. The program provides an opportunity to PhD students to interact with their peers as well as with experienced researchers in the field, and to receive valuable feedback on their work and advice for their future careers. In particular, each student will be assigned a member of the WI doctoral consortium committee, who is an experienced researcher in the relevant field and will be available for personal interactions during the day of the MATES PhD mentoring track. More information is to be found on the MATES homepage.
The main goals of the PhD mentoring session are
- to give PhD researchers an opportunity to get feedback and suggestion on their work from experienced researchers and their peers.
- to interact with other PhD researchers and to get an overview of the field of multi-agent systems.
- to get advice for their (academic) career.
- to provide networking opportunities.

PhD-Paper Submission:
----------------------
Submissions to the PhD mentoring session (PhD short papers) should provide information on the following aspects of the PhD work:
- Motivation
- State of the Art
- Methodical approach
- Preliminary results/findings (optional
- Affiliation and contact details of the PhD supervisor

PhD papers can be up to 6 pages long, written in English and formatted according to the Springer LNCS style (see below). The selection process takes into account the quality of the submitted PhD short paper which will be peer-reviewed by members of the MATES PhD mentoring program committee.

The PhD short papers must be submitted electronically via e-mail to
Alexander Pokahr: pokahr@informatik.uni-hamburg.de
Rene Schumann: rene.schumann@hevs.ch

Presentation and Publication:
-----------------------------
All accepted PhD short papers will be assigned a slot for oral presentation during the MATES PhD mentoring session. In addition, a selected set of these accepted papers describing original, unpublished work mature enough for publication will be included in the MATES proceedings.
