Call For Papers


The 22nd International Conference on Principles and Practice of
Multi-Agent Systems (PRIMA 2019)
October 28th - October 31st, 2019
Università degli Studi di Torino, Torino, Italy

Software systems are becoming more intelligent in the kind of
functionality they offer users. At the same time, systems are becoming
more decentralized, with components that represent autonomous entities
who must communicate among themselves to achieve their goals. Examples
of such systems range from healthcare and emergency relief and
disaster management to e-business and smarts grids. A multiagent
worldview is crucial to properly conceptualizing, building, and
governing such systems. It offers abstractions such as intelligent
agent, protocol, norm, organization, trust, incentive, and so on, and
is rooted in solid computational and software engineering foundations.
As a large but still growing research field of Computer Science,
multiagent systems today remain a unique enabler of interdisciplinary

Important Dates

Submission deadline: June 30th, 2019 (11:59PM UTC-12)
Notification: August 25th, 2019
Camera ready submission: September 5th, 2019
Conference date: October 28th - 31st, 2019

Information for Authors

PRIMA 2019 invites submissions of original, unpublished, theoretical
and applied work strongly relevant to multiagent systems, including
reports on the development of prototype and deployed agent systems,
and of experiments that demonstrate novel agent system capabilities.
An indicative list of topics is provided below.

The papers can be submitted to one of the following categories:

- Regular papers: These papers can be up to 16 pages in length, including
references, in the Springer LNCS format. Note that some regular papers
may be accepted as short papers.

- Short papers: These papers can be up to 8 pages in length, including
references, in the Springer LNCS format. These 'early-innovation' papers
will be reviewed with an emphasis on novelty/originality of the idea.

All the submitted papers must be in a form suitable for double-blind review.
In order to make blind reviewing possible, authors must omit their names and
affiliations from the paper. Also, while the references should include all
published literature relevant to the paper, including previous works of the
authors, it should not include unpublished works. When referring to one's
own work, use the third person rather than the first person. For example,
say "Previously, Foo and Bar [2] have shown that…", rather than "In our
previous work [2] we have shown that...". Such identifying information can
be added back to the final camera-ready version of accepted papers.

The proceedings of the previous editions of the PRIMA conference series
have been published in Springer's Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence
series (LNCS/LNAI). We expected the same for the PRIMA 2019 proceedings.

Special Issue

A selected number of papers will also be invited to submit an extended
version to a fast track of some international journal.

Paper Submission

Papers are to be submitted through the Easychair Conference Management
