CFP: European Workshop on Multi-Agent Systems (EUMAS 2009)

 CALL FOR PAPERS      EUMAS-09                  

Seventh European Workshop on Multi-Agent Systems (EUMAS 2009)
Ayia Napa, Cyprus, 17th--18th December 2009


Abstracts due:           14th September 2009
Full papers due:         18th September 2009
Notification:            30th October 2009
Camera-ready submission: 20th November 2009
EUMAS 2009 workshop:     17th/18th December 2009


In the last two decades, we have seen a significant increase of interest in agent-oriented 
technology. It is crucial that both academics and industrialists within Europe have access 
to a forum at which current research and application issues are presented and discussed. 
Following in the tradition of past EUMAS (Oxford 2003, Barcelona 2004, Brussels 2005, Lisbon 
2006, Hammamet 2007 and Bath 2008), the aim of this Seventh 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 efforts. This workshop is primarily intended as a European 
forum at which researchers and those interested in activities relating to research in the area of 
autonomous agents and multi-agent systems could meet, present (potentially preliminary) 
research results, problems, and issues in an open and informal but academic environment.


Submission of papers describing relevant preliminary or completed work are invited. EUMAS 
2009 also welcomes papers that are under submission, will be presented or have already been 
presented at relevant international conferences.

We specially invite submissions by students that we think will receive valuable feedback 
from the the discussion-oriented focus of the workshop. Preliminary student work is welcome; 
however it has to possess sufficient substance for serving as a discussion basis and therefore 
has to pass the review cycle in the same way as other work.

All submissions should be formatted using Springer LNCS style and have a maximum of 15 pages. 
We request the submission of title and abstract prior the paper submission for 
supporting the tight schedule of reviewing. The authors can submit their abstracts and papers 
through the EUMAS 2009 Easychair submission site:

The workshop has no formal proceedings; it is intended primarily as a forum for interaction 
and discussion. The workshop will provide electronic (CD) proceedings. Printed proceedings 
will be available for an extra fee covering printing costs. Workshop notes will contain all 
original papers and abstracts of previously published papers. Depending on the quality, we 
intend to invite a selection of extended versions of unpublished submissions to be included 
in relevant journal special issues.


The island of Cyprus is well known for the hospitality of its people and its good weather. 
The sun shines nearly every day of the year and at the heart of winter temperatures are generally 
mild, between 10-20 degrees Celsius. Cyprus has a long and very rich history stemming over more 
than 9000 years. Today, history and modern society are comfortably interwined on the island with 
world-class resorts within walking distance of well-preserved Greek and Roman archeological sites 
and other antiquities.

Agia Napa is situated in the middle of the beautiful southeastern coastline of Cyprus. All beaches 
in Agia Napa have been awarded the EU blue flag for their level of cleanliness and facilities 
offered. Many visitors enjoy swimming in these beaches even during the wintertime. Ayia Napa has 
changed its image somewhat over the years, from a fishing village to a clubbers' paradise and 
now has found its place as a multi - cultural town. Cape Greco is a 10 minute drive from the center 
of Ayia Napa, and is considered one of the most beautiful places on the island offering site seeing, 
cliff jumping and a variety of other activities.

Agia Napa is 30 minutes drive from the island's main international airport at Larnaca. This airport 
is well connected with most major cities in Europe via scheduled and chartered flights.
