The 19th European Conference on Multi-Agent Systems

September 14-16, 2022 in Düsseldorf

About









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 University 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.

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

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

Opportunity for a JAAMAS publication

This year, the Journal of Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems (JAAMAS) will provide the opportunity for revised and extended versions of the EUMAS-2022 best paper award winner (see below) and the EUMAS-2022 best paper award runner-up to be fast-tracked for the journal.

Opportunity to publish revised and extended papers in SN CS

A selection of EUMAS-2022 papers will be invited to submit revised and extended versions for publication in a special issue of the Springer Nature Computer Science journal.

Best Paper Award

A Best Paper Award will be presented at the conference.

Formatting and Length

All submissions will be peer-reviewed in a doubly blind fashion. Specifically, all submissions should be anonymised. Submission should be at most 15 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.
