CFP: LAMAS 2010 (Logical Aspects of Multi-Agent Systems)

***** New submission deadline: February 10, 2010 *****

   3rd Workshop on Logical Aspects of Multi-Agent Systems
                   *** LAMAS 2010 ***
           (satellite workshop of AAMAS 2010)
             May 10, 2010, Toronto, Canada

                    Call for Papers


There is a growing interdisciplinary community of researchers and
research groups working on logical aspects of MAS from the perspectives
of logic, artificial intelligence, computer science, game theory, etc.
This workshop is planned to serve two mutually supporting purposes.
First, it will be used as a conference workshop, hosting presentation,
exchange, and publication of original research ideas. Secondly, we would
like to discuss the possibility of setting up a long-term coordination
structure for scientists working in logical aspects of MAS. In the long
run, LAMAS can play the role of a regular meeting for that structure.

The workshop is intended to cover the following subjects:
- Logical systems for specification, analysis, and reasoning about MAS
- Modeling MAS with logic-based models
- Deductive systems for logics for MAS
- Development, complexity analysis, and implementation of algorithmic
 methods for formal verification of MAS
- Applications of logics in MAS.


We encourage submission of papers reporting original unpublished
research. Position papers and visionary work in progress can also be
submitted. Submissions should be anonymous (subject to double-blind
reviewing procedure), and not exceeding 15 pages in the Springer LNCS
format. For templates and instructions for authors, see . Each submission will be
reviewed by at least 2 Program Committee members.


All the accepted papers will appear in the informal workshop proceedings
(published together with the AAMAS proceedings). We envisage that
selected papers will be invited to a special issue of JANCL (Journal of
Applied Non-Classical Logics).
