AAMAS-2010 - 2nd Call for workshops proposal

AAMAS 2010 - Call for Workshop Proposals

The AAMAS-2010 Organizing Committee invites proposals for the Workshop 
Program to be held on May 10-11, 2010  immediately prior to the main technical 
program of the AAMAS conference.

The main goal of the AAMAS-2010 workshops is to stimulate and facilitate discussion, 
interaction, and comparison of approaches, methods, and ideas related to specific 
topics, both theoretical and applied, in the general area of Autonomous Agents and 
Multiagent Systems. The AAMAS-2010 workshops will provide an informal setting where 
participants will have the opportunity to discuss specific technical topics in an atmosphere 
that fosters the active exchange of ideas. AAMAS 2010 will be co-located with KR, 
NMR, ICAPS, FOIS, (all in Toronto) and DL 2010 (in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada), 
and welcomes proposals that cater to the broader community across these areas.

Members from all areas of the AAMAS community are invited to submit workshop 
proposals for review. Workshops on new and emerging topics, applications, and on 
broader topics catering to the broader community represented by the co-located 
events are particularly encouraged. Workshops can vary in length, but most will 
be one full day in duration. Workshop organizers and attendees must register 
for their workshop and preferably also for the  main AAMAS conference. Attendance 
is limited to registered participants only.

as soon as possible but no later than: Saturday October 31, 2009.

Prospective organizers will be notified of the committee's decision 
no later than: Monday November 30, 2009.

The selection of the workshops to be included in the final AAMAS program will be based upon 
multiple factors, including: the scientific/technical interest of the topics, the clarity of 
the proposal in addressing the requested information, the innovativeness  of workshop topics, 
the cross-disciplinary nature of the workshop, and the capacity of the conference workshop 
program. Note that authors of proposals addressing similar and/or overlapping content areas 
and/or audiences may be requested to merge their proposals.

Responsibilities of AAMAS and workshop organizers 

For all accepted proposals, AAMAS will be responsible for:

- Providing publicity for the workshop series as a whole.

- Providing logistic support and a meeting place for the workshop.

- Together with the organizers, determining the workshop date and time.

Workshop organizers will be responsible for:

-Setting up a website for the workshop.

-Advertising the workshop and issuing a call for papers (by DECEMBER 11,  2009) and 
a call for participation (by MARCH 19, 2010).

-Collecting and evaluating submissions, notifying authors of acceptance or rejection 
on a timely basis, and ensuring a transparent and fair selection process. All workshop 
organizers commit themselves to adopt the same deadlines for paper submissions and 
notifications of acceptance, i.e.,  FEBRUARY 2, 2010: Submissions of contributions 
to workshops; MARCH 2, 2010: Notifications

- Making the PDF of the whole workshop notes available to the workshops chair by MARCH 19, 
2010, as well as a list of audio-visual requirements and any special room requirements.
