AAMAS is the leading scientific conference for research in autonomous agents and multiagent 
systems. The AAMAS conference series was initiated in 2002 by merging three highly respected 
meetings: the International Conference on Multi-Agent Systems (ICMAS); the International Workshop 
on Agent Theories, Architectures, and Languages (ATAL); and the 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 multiagent systems.

AAMAS 2012 is the eleventh conference in the AAMAS series, following enormously successful 
previous conferences, and will be held at the Universitat Politcnica de Valncia in Valencia, 
Spain, June 4-8, 2012. The full paper acceptance rate for AAMAS 2012 was 20%.
