THE THIRD EUROPEAN WORKSHOP ON MULTI-AGENT SYSTEMS

Flemish Academic Center for Science and the Arts
        Brussels, Belgium 
          7th and 8th December, 2005
        http://como.vub.ac.be/eumas2005/
                       
----------------------------------------------------------------

INTRODUCTION
In the last 15 years we have seen a significant increase of interest in
agent-oriented technology. This
field is now set to become one of the key technologies in the 21st century
and will underpin much of the
next generation of computing that seeks to address issues in Ambient
Intelligence, Pervasive and
Ubiquitous Computing, Complex Systems, Grid Computing, Services Oriented
Computing, Semantic
Web and many other areas. It is therefore crucial that both academics and
industrialists within Europe
have access to a forum at which current research and application issues are
presented and discussed.
The aim of this third European Workshop on Multi-Agent Systems is to
encourage and support activity
in the research and development of multi-agent systems, in academic and
industrial European efforts.

TOPICS OF INTEREST
Multi-agent systems are computational systems in which agents cooperate or
compete with others to
achieve some collective task. Topics of interest for the workshop therefore
include, but are not limited
to:

Themes:
- Action and Planning ,
- Adaptation and Learning,
- Agents and Complex Systems,
- Agent Models and Architectures,
- Agent Oriented Software Engineering
- Agent Platforms
- Agent Programming Languages
- Artificial social systems: conventions, norms, institutions; trust and
reputation; fraud
- Autonomy
- Cognitive Models
- Communication, protocols
- Coalitions
- Cooperation
- Coordination
- Development Tools
- E-Institutions
- Emotion
- Environment of MAS
- Models: logical, economic, game theory,..
- Multi-agent simulation and modelling
- Negotiation and argumentation
- Ontologies
- Reactivity, Proactivity
- Robotics
- Standards
- Self-organising systems and emergent organisations
- Theories of Agency

MAS dedicated to
- Ambient Intelligence
- Grid Computing
- Pervasive Computing, Ubiquitous Computing
- P2P Computing
- Semantic Web
- Web Services

MAS Applications
- Computational biology,
- E-commerce,
- E-government,
- Healthcare,
- Supply chaining,
- Traffic management...

SUBMISSIONS AND ATTENDANCE
Those interested in participating in the workshop should submit a paper, of
no more than 5000 words,
describing relevant preliminary or completed work to be presented at the
workshop..
The workshop has no formal printed proceedings and EUMAS does not demand
authors to sign over
copyright to their works; it is intended primarily as a forum for
interaction and discussion. Submissions
may be of original work or work that has recently been published at
relevant international conferences.
In addition to informal event working notes however, event proceedings will
also be made available via
a searchable electronic web based archive (original works in full with the
author retaining copyright or
as an abstract with a link to the original publication for previously
published works).
All submissions should include: author's name(s), affiliation, (complete)
mailing address, phone and fax
number, and e-mail address. All paper submissions will be handled
electronically (see the conference
web page for styles and details).
