Aim and description:

Autonomous agents are software entities that are capable of independent action in open, dynamic, unpredictable environments. Agents and multi-agent systems are currently applied in diverse domains that require complex problem solving and strategic reasoning models. The workshop aims to bring together researchers and developers from academia and industry to discuss current scientific and technical results on using multi-agent approaches and technologies for solving complex, distributed real-world problems. The workshop welcomes submissions of original, high-quality papers reporting theoretical results, models, and 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
  • Multi-agent interaction and communication
  • Agent-based personal assistants for smart HCI
  • LLM and Transformer-based multi-agent reasoning
  • Human-agent interaction and conversational agents

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 EasyChair.
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 based on 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 the Conference Publishing Service (CPS) and will be submitted for indexing in ISI Web of Science, DBLP, SCOPUS.
