CALL FOR DEMONSTRATIONS: 13th International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems, May 5-9 2014, Paris, FRANCE

http://www.ntu.edu.sg/home/boan/aamas2014Demo/

(AAMAS 2014)

The goal of the AAMAS DEMOs track is to provide opportunities for participants from academia and/or
industry to present their latest developments in agent-based software and/or robotic systems. 
Interactive systems and novel applications are particularly welcome. Student researchers are 
encouraged to submit. A "Best Demo" will be selected and awarded by the committee.
 
At least one author of accepted demos will be expected to present a poster and live demonstration 
at the conference in Paris.
 
Authors of accepted papers and posters in the main track of the AAMAS conference, as well as 
workshop presenters, are particularly encouraged to submit! (You'll be there anyway - this is 
another opportunity to share your work and discuss your results in detail with conference 
attendees who visit your Demo!)
 
Examples of demos include but are not limited to:
 
         Robotic systems (single- and multi-agent)
 
         Interactive agent-based software systems
 
         Agent-based simulation environments
 
         Personal robotics
 
         Innovative applications of agent-based systems or prototypes (e.g., industrial, military, educational)
 
         Agent-based games
 
         Agent platforms and development environments
 
         Open-source software tools for agent-based system development
 
         Human-robot interactive systems
 
         Virtual agents and interactive virtual environments
 
The organizers will make every effort to facilitate demo requirements. If you have unusual 
requirements please contact the organizers in advance. At a minimum, we will provide a poster 
board, a monitor with a standard VGA connector, a power strip and a 2m table for each 
demonstration.
 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Submission Requirements
 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Submissions accepted for the demonstration session will be advertised on the AAMAS website and 
in the conference booklet, which will contain abstracts of all available Demos. Each Demo 
submission must consist of the following:
 
1.    Paper: A 2-page paper in which the authors describe the system to be demonstrated. The 
paper should describe the application domain, the problem scenario, the technology used, the 
agent/multi-agent techniques involved, the innovations of the system, its live and interactive 
aspects, etc. Papers MUST BE PREPARED IN PDF format using the AAMAS style (follow these instructions)).
 
2.    Video or PPT: The paper must contain a URL linking to a demonstration video no more than 
5 minutes in length (QuickTime or YouTube format) or a Powerpoint presentation showing and 
explaining what happens. If some other format can more clearly show the demo, accommodation 
may be made. Please contact the organizers in advance.
 
3.    Contribution and Supervisor Endorsement (Student Projects Only): A brief note from the 
student's supervisor describing the student's individual contribution to the project, written 
on university letterhead and including the supervisor's full name, title and email address. 
This should be attached as the 3rd page of the PDF Paper submission (above).
 
Accepted Demos will have the 2-page papers included in the AAMAS proceedings.

Selection Process
 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


The submission and selection processes for the AAMAS 2014 Demos will be separate from that 
of the main conference. Each submission will be assessed by the Demos Committee. The authors 
will receive a brief report with the result of the evaluation with the notification. The main 
evaluation criteria are:
 
         Presentation and technical quality
 
         Significance and originality
 
         Relevance to AAMAS
 
         Maturity of the (deployed) system and readiness for demonstration
 
         Potential for public interaction
 
Notification of acceptance or rejection of submitted demos will be sent to the corresponding 
author (see dates below). At least one author of each accepted demonstration is required to 
register and to attend the conference to give the
 demonstration.
