Call For Papers

The 1st International Workshop on Infrastructures and Tools for
Multiagent Systems
ITMAS 2010
Web page:

To be held with AAMAS 2010 (
10 - 14 May, 2010, Toronto, Canada

ITMAS aims at bringing together leading researchers from both academia
and industry to discuss issues on the design and implementation of
infrastructures and tools for Multiagent Systems. When developing
applications based on Multiagent Systems, developers and users demand
infrastructures and tools which support essential features in Multiagent
Systems (such as agent organizations, mobility, etc.) and facilitate the
system design, management, execution and evaluation. Agent
infrastructures are usually built using other technologies such as grid
systems, service-oriented architectures, P2P networks, etc. In this
sense, the integration and interoperability of such technologies in
Multiagent Systems is also a challenging issue in the area of both tools
and infrastructures for Multiagent Systems. A long term goal is the
industrial development of infrastructures for building highly scalable
applications comprising pre-existing agents that must be organized or

In order for Multiagent Systems to be included in real domains such as
industry, infrastructures and tools for Multiagent Systems should
provide efficiency, scalability, security, management, monitoring
and other features related to building real applications.

We encourage the submission of papers describing any kinds of
infrastructures and tools that are used to provide support for
Multiagent Systems. We are particularly interested in infrastructures
and tools that allow agent-based systems to be adopted by designers and
programmers both in academia and industry.

Specific topics for this workshop include, but are not limited to:
* Agent Infrastructures
* Agent Communication Technologies
* Interoperability
* Integration of technologies to support Multiagent Systems
* Efficiency and Scalability Evaluation
* Agent Infrastructure Benchmarks
* Security, Privacy and Identity Management in Multiagent Systems
* Secure Infrastructures and Tools for Multiagent Systems
* Infrastructures and tools supporting Social and Organizational Models
* Infrastructures and tools supporting Trust and Reputation Models
* Infrastructures and tools supporting Intelligent Virtual Environments
* Infrastructures and tools supporting Electronic Institutions
* Design, Management and Monitoring tools for Multiagent Systems
* Information Retrieval Tools for Multiagent Systems
* Semantic Web Tools for Multiagent Systems
* Mobile Agent Technologies
* Industry implementations of Multiagent Systems
* Experiences using Infrastructures and Tools for Multiagent Systems
* Infrastructures and Tools for Biomedical Multiagent Systems

Papers will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 reviewers from the Program
Committee. Criteria for the selection of papers will include: high
quality, clear presentation, novelty of research, relevance to the
topics, coverage of relevant state of the art and the practical
implementation of the infrastructures and tools presented.

Submissions must follow the AAMAS 2010 paper format
( and
should be a maximum of 8 pages.

Papers must be submitted in pdf format via the conference management
system, available at:

We are negotiating the publication of extended versions of selected
papers as a volume for a special issue of the Engineering Applications
of Artificial Intelligence Journal which is ranked with a 1.397 JCR
Impact Factor (year 2008).
