-- --------------------------CALL FOR PAPERS AND SPECIAL SESSIONS -

2nd International Symposium on Agents and Multi-agent Systems – 
Technologies and  Applications  
Incheon, Korea  
26 Mar. – 28 Mar. 2008  


KES-AMSTA-08 is an international scientific symposium for research in 
the field of agent  and multi-agent systems.  
The aim of the symposium is to provide an internationally respected 
forum for scientific  research in the technologies  
and applications of agent and multi-agent systems.  
Previous KES-AMSTA was held in Wroclaw, Poland (2007, LNAI 4496).  
KES-AMSTA-08 is organized by KES International and Inha University, 
Korea, and will  take place in Incheon.  



Papers are invited from prospective authors with interests on the below 
indicated  symposium topics and related areas  
of application. All contributions should be original and not published 
elsewhere or  intended to be published during the  
review period. Contributions from more applied related fields in industry 
and commerce  are very welcome. All accepted  
papers must be presented by one of the authors who must register for 
the conference.  To ensure high quality, all papers  
will be thoroughly reviewed by the KES-AMSTA-08 International 
Programme Committee.  The symposium proceedings  
will be published by Springer-Verlag in LNCS/LNAI series. Submitted 
papers should be  prepared in LNCS/LNAI style  
and should not exceed 10 pages. Extended versions of selected papers 
will be  considered for publication in special  
issues to be included in several journals indexed by ISI, KES Journal 
and Int. Journal of  Intelligent Information and  
Database Systems. Ph.D. students are invited to submit paper s to 
Doctoral Track.  Special sessions are also welcome.
