----------------------------------------------------------------------------

A Special Session on **Multi-Agent Systems **will be held during the 
3^rd Indian International Conference on Artificial Intelligence 
(IICAI-07) <http://www.iiconference.org/>. A Multi-Agent System is a 
macro-system composed of autonomous agents which pursue an individual 
objective and which interact in a common environment to solve a common 
task and enables designing more and more complex applications. Nowadays, 
Agent and Multi-Agent techniques play a crucial roles in Ambient 
Intelligence, Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing, Complex Systems, Grid 
Computing, Services Oriented Computing, Semantic Web and many other areas.

The topics covered by the session include but certainly not limited to:

    .  agent-oriented software engineering
    .  programming multi-agent systems
    .  multi-agent architectures
    .  multi-agent-based simulation and modeling
    .  autonomous robots and robot teams
    .  collective and emergent multi-agent behavior
    .  self-organization in multi-agent systems
    .  computational complexity in multi-agent systems
    .  cooperative distributed problem solving in multi-agent systems
    .  cooperation and coordination
    .  argumentation and auctions
    .  agent models and theories of agency
    .  frameworks, infrastructures and environments for agent systems
    .  multi-agent evolution, adaptation and learning
    .  multi-agent planning
    .  negotiation and conflict handling in multi-agent systems
    .  privacy, safety and security in multi-agent systems
    .  scalability, robustness and dependability of multi-agent systems
    .  social and organizational structures of multi-agent systems
    .  specification languages for multi-agent systems
    .  verification and validation of multi-agent systems
    .  e-institutions
    .  e-commerce
    .  ambient intelligence,ambient systems
    .  novel computing paradigms (e.g. autonomic, grid, P2P, ubiquitous
    computing)
    .  web services and semantic web

Paper Submission and Publication: *
Authors are encouraged to submit the papers for this session by 
accessing the website: http://www.easychair.org/MASIICAI07. The papers 
should be in MSWORD or PDF format and should be formatted according to 
the Springer Lecture Notes 
<http://www.springer.com/sgw/cda/frontpage/0,11855,5-164-2-72376-0,00.html> 
instructions. The length of a paper should not exceed 20 pages. Shorter 
papers or papers on the work currently in progress are also welcome. The 
first page of the paper should contain the title, name(s) of the 
authors, affiliations, the postal and email addresses, and at least 3 
keywords appropriate to the content of the paper. Further information 
regarding the paper submission can be obtained from the conference 
website too.

Each paper will be peer reviewed by at least two experts in the topical 
area. All accepted papers will be published in the conference 
proceedings, under the title of the session.

You may contact the General Chair 
<http://www.iiconference.org/contact.html> of the conference for any 
additional information.
