Aim and description

Autonomous agents are software entities that are capable of independent action in open, unpredictable environments. Agents and multi-agent systems are currently applied in diverse domains that require complex problem solving models. The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers and developers from academia and industry in order to discuss current scientific and technical results on using agent technology for solving complex, distributed real-world problems. The workshop welcomes submissions of original, high-quality papers reporting on models or systems that have been or are being implemented.

Experience reports and application demonstrators are particularly welcome.


Specific topics of this workshop include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Agent-based distributed problem solving
  • Reinforcement learning
  • Multi-agent learning
  • Agent based modeling of complex systems
  • Agents in game theory
  • Agent based scheduling and planning
  • Agent based resource and service discovery
  • Agents and emergent behavior
  • Synergies between agents and complex social networks
  • Multi-agent systems for the Internet of Things
  • Web-based multi-agent systems applications
  • Multi-agent based trustworthy computing
  • Agent-based personal assistants for smart HCI

Paper submission

We invite submissions containing original research results in the form of:
+ full research papers
+ short papers (work in progress)

Papers of up to 8 pages prepared according to the CPS template must be submitted electronically using the submission system that will be later accessible through Easy Chair.
Research papers must contain original research results not submitted and not published elsewhere. Authors who want to present work in progress or discuss new aspects or a survey of their older research results at the workshop are welcome to submit an extended abstract (up to 4 pages). Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their scientific merit and relevance to the workshop topics.


Research papers that are accepted and presented at the workshop will be collected as proceedings published by Conference Publishing Service (CPS) and will be submitted for indexing in ISI Web of Science, DBLP, SCOPUS.
