The 19th European Conference on Multi-Agent Systems (EUMAS 2022) will be on September 14-16, 2022. We hope that we are allowed to welcome you at the Heinrich-Heine-Universität in Düsseldorf (Germany), and plan the event on site. Note, however, that this may change due to local COVID regulations.

EUMAS 2022 is an EURAMAS designated event which 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, Israel (online) 2021), 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 2022 features formal proceddings published as part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series of Springer.

This conference is kindly sponsored by the Gesellschaft von Freunden und Förderern der Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf e.V. (GFFU).

Registration & Attendance

Registration and Fees

We are happy to announce that the conference will be free for everyone! This was made possible especially by the kind sponsoring from GFFU. Although there is no registration fee, we require every participant to pre-register for the conference by August 28 using this form. Our registration table will be open every day before the first talk. Please pick up your name tag there and sign for your attandance.

Getting to the Venue

The conference will be in the lecture room 5C of building 25.11 of Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf (HHU). It is next to the university library to which you can easily navigate for example using Google Maps. Please see also the campus map provided by the university. Note that Düsseldorf has another smaller university (of applied sciences) in the north of Düsseldorf which you must not confuse with the HHU in the south.

If you come by car, the university provides lots of free parking. Closest to the venue are parking lots P2 and P3 (P3 is reachable through oeconomicum). If you come by bike, you can lock it up at the designated spots in front of the building. In addition, the university is easily accessible by public transport. You can take bus lines 731, 735, 827, 835, 836, SB53, and SB57 to get to the bus stop "Universität Mitte". Further, the tram station "D-Uni Ost/Botanischer Garten" is reachable with lines U73, U79, and 704. Tram station "D-Uni Nord/Christophstr" is a 5 minutes walk away but is reachable additionally by U83. Some further travel information can be found here.

Hotels

The university is right in the middle of districts "Bilk" and "Wersten" where you can easily find several hotels. However, you can also search for hotels in the more beautiful (but also more expensive) city center. The historical city center "Altstadt" as well as the streets close to the river Rhein between "Medienhafen" and "Altstadt" are striking highlights.

Technical Requirements for Presenters

The lecture hall features a beamer (HDMI) with a computer (Linux). If your slides are in PDF format, please send us your slides the day before your presentation, so we can copy them on the presentation computer. You can also bring a USB drive and copy the slides on the computer right before the presentation block. We hope to reduce gap time between presentations as well as technical issues by this procedure. However, if you need Powerpoint or other special programs, please bring your own computer. Note that we experienced issues with some combinations of Apple devices and adapters in the lecture hall. If you want to test your configuration before the talk, please contact us.



Doctoral Consortium (PhD Day)

The PhD Day provides the opportunity for PhD students to present and discuss their ideas to other PhD students as well as experts in the field. The application phase is closed now. Every applicant should have received a reply from us stating whether the application is accepted and what should be changed for the final version of the summary (in case you want to include it in the proceedings).

Every participant of the PhD-Day should prepare a short talk (8 to 12 minutes; about 5 slides). You will give this talk during the PhD-Day. Beside a quick introduction of yourself, focus on what you study "from a bird's eye view" whithout getting too technical. Note the information on technical requirements for presentations in our rooms.

Further, we are happy to welcome Piotr Faliszewski as speaker for the PhD-Day. As a luminary in the field, he will give a talk on his research areas. Afterwards, he will be happy to have a chat with you, tell you about his experiences in research, and give advice for your own work.
