CALL FOR PAPERS: 16th International Conference on Principles and Practice of Multi-Agent Systems, December 3-6, 2013, Dunedin, NEW ZEALAND - EXTENDED DEADLINE

PRIMA 2013 is co-located with Australasian Artificial Intelligence conference (

Agent computing is an exciting, transformational approach to developing computer systems that can 
rapidly and reliably solve real-world problems that usually demand human knowledge and expertise. 
The value, power and flexibility of agent and multi-agent systems has been demonstrated in 
application areas such as logistics, manufacturing, simulation, robotics, decision support, 
entertainment, and especially in online market environments. As one of the largest and fastest 
growing research fields of Computer Science, agent research today includes a wealth of topics.

Robotics, being one of the well-known application area for software agents, has attracted special 
interest in multi-agent system community (e.g. through the special track on Robotics in AAMAS 
conferences).  For PRIMA 2013, among other regular agent topics 
(see, we also solicit papers on robotics that 
address the research problems that arise from the design and implementation of robots as 
intelligent agents. Papers focusing on all scientific and technical challenges brought by the 
interactions among multiple robots, robots and humans, robots and the environment are welcome. 
Papers should clearly explain how the work reported addresses challenges in robotics, opportunities
for novel applications, and fundamental research issues in autonomous robotic systems.

The topics of interest in the robotics domain include the following:

Cognitive robotics
Integrated perception, cognition, and action
Human-robot interaction
Machine learning for robotics
Mapping, localization and exploration
Networked robot/sensor systems
Robot planning (including action and motion planning)
Robot teams, multi-robot systems
Robot coordination
Robotic agent languages and middleware for robot systems
Swarms and collective behaviours

The PRIMA 2013 Program Committee invites submissions of original, unpublished, theoretical and 
applied work on these topics, and encourages reports on the development of prototype and deployed 
agent-based robotic systems, and of experiments that demonstrate novel agent system capabilities.

Paper Submission

Two types of contributions are solicited:

- Full papers, up to 16  pages in LNCS format, should present original theoretical and/or 
experimental research in any of the areas listed above that has not been previously published, 
accepted for publication, or is not currently under review by another conference or journal. Note 
that some full papers may be accepted as short papers (see below).

- Short papers (early innovation papers), up to 8 pages in LNCS format showcasing works-in-progress
(will be reviewed with an emphasis on novelty/originality of the idea). 

Both full and short papers will be included in the conference proceedings by Springer (LNAI series).
Authors of both types of papers will need to present their work at the conference.

Please refer to the Paper Submission page ( for details on 
how to format your paper and how to submit your paper via EasyChair.
