Description of FAMAS

In recent years, multi-agent systems have come to form one of the
key technologies for software development. The fourth edition of the
FAMAS workshop series, after the success of FAMAS'03 affiliated with
ETAPS?03 in Warsaw, FAMAS'06 affiliated with ECAI'06 in Riva del Garda,
and FAMAS'007 as part of MALLOW'007 in Durham, aims at bringing together
researchers from the fields of logic, theoretical computer science and
multi-agent systems in order to discuss formal techniques for specifying
and verifying multi-agent systems.

 

Suggested, but not exclusive, topics of interest for the workshop are:
*logics for multi-agent systems
*formal methods for verification of multi-agent systems
*formal models of teamwork
*formal approaches to communication, coordination and negotiation
*logical analysis of games
*computational social choice
*logical approaches to protocols ensuring privacy and security
*approximate reasoning in a multi-agent environment
