Call For Papers

HoloMAS2017 - 8th International Conference on Industrial Applications of Holonic and Multi-Agent Systems

August 28-30, 2017, Lyon, France

in conjunction with DEXA 2017 events

Holonic and multi-agent systems provide a novel paradigm for managing, modelling and supporting complex systems. This concept has proved to be successful in a number of industrial domains such as manufacturing, real-time control, supply chain management, logistics, production planning and scheduling, air traffic control, smart grids, and others. Multi-agent systems play the role of a key technology in the field of future manufacturing within the frame of the Industrie 4.0 visions.

The conference aims to bring together researchers active in the area of Holonic and Multi-agent Systems, Service-Oriented Architectures, Knowledge-based System Integration as well as Cyber-Physical Systems, and together with key engineers and industrial decision makers to share their views and experience in design, development and application of Holonic and Multi-agent Systems for Industrie 4.0 solutions.

Technical co-sponsorships of the IEEE SMC TC on Distributed Intelligent Systems (TC-DIS), the IEEE SMC TC on Intelligent Industrial Systems (TC-IIS), and the IEEE IES TC on Industrial Agents (TC-IA) are expected.

SUGGESTED TOPICS (but not limited to):
• Theoretical backgrounds behind holonic/agent concepts
• Industrial applications of multi-agent systems and service-oriented architectures in Industrie 4.0 (case-studies are specially appreciated) as well as applications in smart grids, smart cities, and flexible logistics
• Design principles, methodologies and applications of Cyber-Physical Systems
• Design principles and methodologies for flexible production planning and scheduling
• Specification of holonic, agent-based, and service-oriented architectures and design methodologies including approaches for their fusion and system integration
• Semantic Web technologies, Knowledge Ontologies and Big Data in agent-based and SOA-based industrial systems
• Communication principles and standards
• Virtual organizations & holonic factories – reconfigurable factories
• Modeling and simulation tools
• Reconfiguration tasks, coalition formation
• Novel application areas (health-care, environmental protection, government, humanitarian missions, smart grids, and smart cities, Energy 4.0)
• Visions and future trends of multi-agent systems and SOA-based architectures in the Industrie 4.0 visions
• Standardization issues, security issues, industrial and logistic needs in security and standardization
• Obstacles and barriers to industrial deployment
• Validation and testing approaches and methods for complex intelligent, industrial systems

As a part of the HoloMAS 2017 Conference, The 3rd German-Czech Workshop on Industrie 4.0 will be organized.

Authors are invited to submit research contributions or critiques of practical experience. Papers (in English) should not exceed 14 pages in Springer Verlag format. Authors are requested to submit their papers electronically to the conference web site. All accepted conference papers will be published in the conference proceedings in “Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence” (LNAI) series by Springer Verlag.
