CFP: MATES 2010-Multi-Agent System Technologies

M A T E S  2 0 1 0

Eighth German Conference on Multi-Agent System Technologies

September 21 - 23, 2010,
Karslruhe, Germany



The German Conference on Multi-Agent system Technologies (MATES) provides an interdisciplinary
forum for researchers, users, and developers to present and discuss latest advances in research work
as well as prototyped or fielded systems of intelligent agents and multi-agent systems. The conference
covers the whole range of agent- and multi-agent technologies and aims to promote its theory and
applications. For the eighth time, the German special interest group on Distributed Artificial Intelligence
organizes this international conference in cooperation with the steering committee of MATES and
thereby continues this successful track of events.

Building on the successful predecessors from 2003 to 2009, MATES 2010 will be co-located with the
33st German Conference on Artificial Intelligence (KI 2010) and will take place from September 21 to
24, 2010 in Karlsruhe. The participants of MATES 2010 will also have full access to the concurrently
running program of the KI 2010 conference.


Topics of interest of MATES 2010 include all aspects of agent-oriented computing and agent
We solicit both basic as well as applied research papers on recent advances in the area of intelligent
agents and multi-agent systems in general.
Also papers reporting on the successful application of agent technologies in any kind of domain are
very welcome.
MATES 2010 encourages especially submissions from recent and emerging areas of interest such as
autonomic computing, distributed coordination and robust multi-agent systems.  Additionally, we
encourage the submission of elaborated vision and challenge papers that discuss mid-term and long-
term directions for research and application.

Topics of interest for MATES 2010 include, but are not limited to:

	Adaptive agents and multi-agent learning
	Advanced theories of collaboration:
      Modelling and formation of teams, coalitions, groups, and organizations
	Agents and autonomic computing
	Agent and multi-agent architectures
	Agents and peer-to-peer computing
	Agents and pervasive computing
	Agents for Ambient Intelligence
	Agent-based service discovery, matchmaking, brokering, and composition
	Agent communication languages
	Agents for e-business and e-government
	Agent technologies in the context of service-oriented computing and architectures
	Agent to non-agent interoperability
	Agents in novel applications
	Application of agent-technologies in industrial practice
	Artificial social systems: Conventions, norms, institutions; trust and reputation
	Autonomous robots and robot teams
	Commitment, delegation, responsibility, and obligations in artificial and hybrid societies
	Complex systems and their management
	Coordination, negotiation, argumentation, and conflict resolution
	Deployed agent-based business applications
	Hybrid human and agent societies
	User modelling and interface agents
	Embodied conversational actors and believable agents
	Mobile agents
	Model-driven design of multi-agent systems
	Multi-agent planning and scheduling
	Multi-agent platforms and tools
	Multi-agent (social) simulation and (cognitive) modelling with agents
	Practical aspects of programming agent systems: Robustness, fault tolerance, scalability and
performance measurement
	Roles and structures, adaptive learning and cognition in organizational models
	Semantics of the dynamics of organizational models
	Standards for agents and multi-agent systems


MATES 2010 will include a doctoral mentoring program, chaired by Ingo Timm, aimed at PhD students
at advanced stages of their research.
This program will provide an opportunity for students to interact closely with established researchers in
their fields, to receive feedback on their work and to get advice on managing their careers.


The proceedings of MATES 2010 will appear in the Springer-Verlag series,
Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI).


MATES will issue a "MATES 2010 Best Paper Award".


For the preparation of papers to be submitted, please follow the instructions for authors available at
the Springer LNCS Web page:
The length of each paper, including figures and references, should not exceed 12 pages. Papers that
have been accepted or are under review by other conferences or journals are not eligible for
submission. However, we encourage interdisciplinary contributions submitted or presented in part to a
forum outside of agent technology. The only acceptable document format is PDF. All papers must be
written in English. Submissions not conforming to the above requirements may be rejected without
review. Papers are to submit by the EasyChair system.
