CALL FOR PAPERS: "Logical Aspects of Multi-Agent Systems", 10 Nov 2011, SPAIN

4th Workshop on Logical Aspects of Multi-Agent Systems *** LAMAS 2011 *** (held together with M4M-7), Osuna, Spain


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.
The LAMAS workshop serves the community as a platform for presentation, exchange, and publication of ideas. This year, LAMAS will be held as a part of the 7th Methods for Modalities conference (M4M-7), see and the LAMAS 2011 web page for details.

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
- Logic-based tools for MAS
- Applications of logics in MAS.


Authors are invited to submit papers in the following two categories:

- Regular papers up to 15 pages, describing original unpublished
   research. (Position papers and visionary work in progress can also be
   submitted in this category.)

- System descriptions of up to 12 pages, describing new systems or
   significant upgrades of existing ones.

Submissions should be anonymous, subject to double-blind reviewing procedure. They must be in pdf and prepared according to the ENTCS style, see for instructions and templates. Papers should be submitted via EasyChair at the following
address: .


The joint proceedings of LAMAS 2011 and M4M-7 will appear as a volume in Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer Science (ENTCS), an electronic journal published by Elsevier.
