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:  

Research axis
- 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). A subset of papers may also be selected for a more
formal publication such as a journal special issue or special volume.

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 details http://como.vub.ac.be/eumas2005/).

VENUE

This years' edition will be held in Belgium, Brussels. The workshop will
take place at the Royal Flemish Academy of Belgium for Science and Arts
in Brussels (http://www.kvab.be/). The Academy is located at the centre
of Brussels, close to the Royal Palais, the Belgian parliament and the
central station.

Brussels as " Capital of Flanders, Belgium and Europe " is easy to
reach by car, train and plane. Its location at the center of Belgium
combined with the size of Belgium allows full or even half-a-day trips
to all parts of Belgium with historic cities such as Bruges, Antwerp,
Ghent, Louvain, Liege etc. General information on Brussels can be found
on http://www.brussels-congress.be/
