2nd CFP-AAMAS 2010 Agents and Multi Agent Systems
2nd Call for Papers-AAMAS 2010 The 9th International Conference on Agents and Multi Agent Systems Toronto, Canada Important dates: Conference: May 10 - 14, 2010 Electronic Abstract Submission: October 8, 2009 Full Paper Submission: October 13, 2009 Author Notification: December 18, 2009 Collocated with KR2, NMR, ICAPS, FOIS, (all in Toronto) and DL 2010 (in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada) Expanded and latest information: http://www.cse.yorku.ca/AAMAS2010/ INTRODUCTION AAMAS is the leading scientific conference for research in autonomous agents and multi-agent systems. The AAMAS conference series was initiated in 2002 by merging three highly-respected meetings: International Conference on Multi-Agent Systems (ICMAS); International Workshop on Agent Theories, Architectures, and Languages (ATAL); and International Conference on Autonomous Agents (AA). The aim of the joint conference is to provide a single, high-profile, internationally-respected archival forum for scientific research in the theory and practice of autonomous agents and multi-agent systems. AAMAS-2010 is the Ninth conference in the AAMAS series, following enormously successful previous conferences, and will be held at the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel in downtown Toronto. See http://www.ifaamas.org for more information on the AAMAS conference series. SUBMISSION DETAILS AAMAS-2010 seeks high-quality submissions of full papers, limited to 8 pages in length. Submissions will be rigorously peer reviewed and evaluated on the basis of originality, soundness, significance, presentation, understanding of the state of the art, and overall quality of their technical contribution. Reviews will be double blind; authors must avoid including anything that can be used to identify them. Where submission is for full (8 page) papers only, in some cases they may be accepted as 2 page extended abstracts For formatting instructions and a list of keywords, please refer to the conference page. In addition to submissions in the main track, AAMAS is soliciting papers in two special tracks on robotics, and on virtual agents (see below). The review process for the special tracks will be the same as for the main track, but with specially-selected program committee members. Special Track on Robotics (Chair: Michael Beetz): Papers on theory and applications concerning single and multiple robots will be welcome, namely those focusing on real robots interacting with their surrounding environments. The goal is to foster interaction between researchers on agent and robotics systems, so as to provide a cradle for cross-fertilization of concepts from both fields. Special Track on Virtual Agents (Chair: Stacy Marsella): Virtual agents are embodied agents in interactive virtual or physical environments that emulate human-like behavior. We encourage papers on the design, implementation, and evaluation of virtual agents as well as challenging applications featuring them. The goal is to provide an opportunity for interaction and cross-fertilization between the AAMAS community and researchers working on virtual agents and to strengthen links between the two communities. In addition to the conference papers, presented in parallel technical sessions, AAMAS-2010 will include: o Industry and Applications track o Demonstrations o Posters presentations for full papers and extended abstracts o Invited talks and panel discussions The submission processes for the demonstration and industry tracks are separate from the main paper submission process. ORGANIZING COMMITTEE General Chairs: Michael Luck and Sandip Sen Program Chairs: Wiebe van der Hoek and Gal A. Kaminka Local Organization Chair: Yves Lesperance A list of the other members of the AAMAS-2010 Organizing Committee, a list of Senior PC members and an updated list of keywords may be found at http://www.cse.yorku.ca/AAMAS2010/ Soon it will also show the PC members!
