EUMAS 2014 - 12th European Conference on Multi-Agent Systems

Second Call for Papers EUMAS 2014 12th European Conference on Multi-Agent Systems
December 18-19, 2014 Prague, Czech Republic

IMPORTANT NEWS: We are happy to announce that Springer confirmed to publish the EUMAS 2014 proceedings as an LNCS/LNAI volume. Please note that the page limit for short papers
has been modified.


In the last two decades, we have seen a significant increase of interest in agent-based computing. This field is now set to become one of the key technologies in the 21st century. It is crucial that both academics and industrialists within Europe have access to a forum at which current research and application issues are presented and discussed.
Following the tradition of previous editions of EUMAS (Oxford 2003, Barcelona 2004, Brussels 2005, Lisbon 2006, Hammamet 2007, Bath 2008, Agia Napa 2009, Paris 2010, Maastricht 2011, Dublin 2012, Toulouse 2013), the aim of this 12th European Conference on Multi-Agent Systems is to encourage and support activity in the research and development of multi-agent systems, in academic and industrial efforts.
This conference is primarily intended as a European forum at which researchers, and those interested in activities relating to research in the area of autonomous agents and multi-agent systems, can meet, present (potentially preliminary) research results, problems, and issues in an open and informal but academic environment. To attract students and experienced researchers, preliminary as well as mature work, EUMAS 2014 offers three submission types and has formal proceedings published by Springer as LNCS/LNAI volume. A journal special issue is planned as well.
EUMAS 2014 is a designated event of the European Association of Multi-Agent Systems (EURAMAS):


Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
Action and Planning, Adaptation and Learning, Agent Architectures, Agent Programming Languages, Agents and Complex Systems, Agent Based Simulation, Ambient Intelligence Applications, Argumentation, Autonomy, Bio-inspired Approaches to Agents and Multi-Agent Systems, Cognitive Models, Collective and Swarm Intelligence, Collective Intentionality, Communication, Competition, Complexity, Cooperation, Coordination, e-*Applications (e-commerce, etc.), Economic Models, Emergence, Emotion, Formal Models, Game Theoretic Models, Grid Computing, Logics for Multi-Agent Systems, Methodologies, Negotiation, Organisations and Institutions, Proactivity and Reactivity, Protocols, Robotics, Self-organisation, Semantic Web Agents, Agent-based Service Oriented Computing, Socio-technical Systems, Agent-oriented Software Engineering, Standards, Teamwork, Theories of Agency, Tools, Trust and Reputation, Ubiquitous Computing, Verification, Virtual Agents.


EUMAS 2014 welcomes both original, unpublished papers, as well as papers that are under submission or have been published in a relevant conference, conference or journal. We specially invite submissions by students that we think will receive valuable feedback from the discussion-oriented focus of the conference. Preliminary student work is welcome; however, it has to possess sufficient substance for serving as a discussion basis and therefore has to pass the review cycle in the same way as other work.
Authors are invited to submit papers in the following three categories:
(1) Full research papers of 12 to 15 pages, describing original and unpublished work. Simultaneous submission to another venue is not allowed.
(2) Short papers of 6 to 8 pages reporting on original and unpublished work in progress or system descriptions. Simultaneous submission to another venue is not allowed.
(3) Full research papers up to 15 pages reporting on interesting and relevant work that has been published (or accepted for publication) in the last 18 months.
Each submission will be peer-reviewed. All submissions must be formatted following Springer’s LNCS format. For templates and instructions for authors, see
We request the submission of title and abstract prior the paper submission for supporting the tight schedule of reviewing. The authors must submit their abstracts and papers through the EUMAS 2014 Easychair submission site:


EUMAS has formal conference proceedings published as a Springer LNCS/LNAI (post-)proceedings volume ( Full research papers and short papers describing original, unpublished work (categories 1 and 2) accepted at EUMAS 2014 will be included in the proceedings.
After the conference, we also plan to invite authors of selected papers to extend and re-submit their work to be considered for inclusion in a journal special issue (currently under negotiation). The submissions to that special issue will be subject to another reviewing and selection process.


Abstract submission deadline: September 26, 2014 Paper submission: September 29, 2014 Author acceptance notification: November 7, 2014 Camera-ready deadline: December 1, 2014 Conference: December 18-19, 2014
Authors of accepted papers will be given the opportunity to revise the camera ready version of their paper(s) in order to incorporate feedback received upon the presentation of their work during the conference. The deadline for this revision is: January 14, 2015.
