Tenth European Workshop on Multi-Agent Systems

OVERVIEW

Research on multi-agent systems has shed light onto and provided solutions to many real-life 
problems. As the field matures, academics and industrialists benefit from European-based forums 
where state-of-the-art and state-of-the-practice are presented and discussed. The EUMAS series 
of events have served this purpose and in this 10th edition (following Maastricht, The Netherlands,
2011; Paris, France, 2010; Aiya Napa, Cyprus, 2009; Bath, England, 2008; Hammamet, Tunisia, 2007; 
Lisbon, Portugal, 2006; Brussels, Belgium, 2005; Barcelona, Spain, 2004; Oxford, England, 2003) 
we shall carry on in this tradition. The EUMAS series of workshops is primarily intended as a 
European forum at which researchers, and those interested in activities relating to research, 
in the area of autonomous agents and multi-agent systems can meet, present (potentially preliminary)
research results, problems, and issues in an open and informal but academic environment.

SUBMISSIONS

Submission of papers describing relevant preliminary or completed work are invited.  EUMAS welcomes 
papers that are original, or are under submission, will be presented or have already been presented
at relevant international conferences.  The workshop is intended as a forum for interaction and 
discussion, and we especially invite submissions by students, who can receive valuable feedback 
from this discussion-oriented focus. Preliminary student work is welcome, as long as it possesses 
sufficient substance for serving as a basis for discussion.

All submissions should be formatted using Springer's LNCS style and have a maximum of 15 pages. 
We request the submission of title and abstract prior to the paper submission, to help meet the 
tight reviewing schedule.  Further submission details on how to submit abstracts and papers will 
appear soon on the page below.

https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=eumas2012

The workshop has no formal proceedings; it is intended primarily as a forum for interaction and 
discussion. The workshop will provide proceedings to registrants electronically (on a USB stick).  
Depending on the quality, we intend to invite a selection of extended versions of original (not 
previously published) submissions to be included in relevant journal special issues.

DATES

Abstracts due:           30 September 2012 (extended)
Full papers due:         03 October   2012 (extended)
Notification:            05 November  2012
Camera-ready submission: 21 November  2012
EUMAS 2012 workshop:     18-19 December 2012
