The 18th European Conference on Multi-Agent Systems (EUMAS 2021) will be held over the internet June 28 & 29, 2021. EUMAS 2021 follows the tradition of previous editions (Oxford 2003, Barcelona 2004, Brussels 2005, Lisbon 2006, Hammamet 2007, Bath 2008, Agia Napa 2009, Paris 2010, Maastricht 2011, Dublin 2012, Toulouse 2013, Prague 2014, Athens 2015, Valencia 2016, Evry 2017, Bergen 2018, Thessaloniki 2020), and aims to encourage and support activity in the research and development of multi- agent systems, in academic and industrial effort. The conference aspires to be the primary European forum for researchers interested in the theory and practice of autonomous agents and multi-agent systems. EUMAS enables researchers to meet, present challenges, preliminary and mature research results in an open environment. EUMAS 2021 features formal proceddings published as part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series of Springer.
NEW! EUMAS 2021 features a fast-track for improved extended abstracts and rejected submissions from latest AAMAS, AAAI and IJCAI. Best paper and runner up will be eligable for a fast track submission to JAAMAS. Also, a post-proceeding publication with a selection of papers will be considered for a special issue of the SN Computer Science Journal.
EUMAS 2021 welcomes original, unpublished papers including improved versions of extended abstracts or rejected papers from AAMAS, AAAI and IJCAI 2021. The submission should describe work that has not been previously published, accepted for publication, nor is currently under review by another conference or journal.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: – Action and Planning – Adaptation and Learning – Agent Architectures – Agent Programming Languages – Agent Development Methodologies and Tools – Agent-Based Simulation – Agent Organisations and Institutions – Agent-oriented Software Engineering – Agents and Complex Systems – Applications of Multi-agent Systems – Argumentation – Automated negotiation – Biologically inspired approaches – Cognitive Models – Collective and Swarm Intelligence – Collective Intentionality – Communication, Cooperation, and Coordination - Computational Social Choice – Economic Models – Electronic Commerce – Ethical behaviour of multi-agent systems – Formal Modelling – Game-Theoretic Methods - Human-Agent Interaction – Logics for Multi-Agent Systems – Logics for Strategic Reasoning – Negotiation – Self-organisation – Semantic Web Agents - Social Networks – Socio-technical Systems – Theories of Agency – Trust and Reputation – Verification – Virtual Agents – Voting and Judgment Aggregation Models for multi-agent systems
Deadline for papers submission: February 28, 2021
Notification sent to authors: April 28, 2021
Camera-Ready Papers: May 28, 2021
Virtual Conference: 28 & 29 June 2021
All submissions will be peer-reviewed in a doubly blind fashion. Specifically, all submissions should be anonymised. Submission should be at most 10 pages long, with any number of pages for references and, if needed, a clearly marked appendix and be formatted according to Springer’s LNCS format. For templates and instructions for authors, see http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html.
Fast-track submissions should include the original reviews of the paper along with a cover letter listing all changes made as supplementary material.
Authors must submit their papers through the EUMAS 2021 Easychair submission site at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=eumas2021 as a single PDF file. To qualify for the fast-track upload a cover letter together with the submission.
