CALL FOR PAPERS: Logical Aspects of Multi-Agent Systems, 5-6 May 2014, Paris, FRANCE
================================= INTRODUCTION ================================= 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. The workshop is intended to cover the following subjects: - Logical systems for specification, analysis, and reasoning about MAS - Modeling MAS with logic-based models - Logic in game theory - Logic in social choice theory - Deductive systems and decision procedures 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 ================================= SUBMISSION ================================= Authors are invited to submit papers in the following three categories: - Regular papers up to 15 pages, describing original unpublished research.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. Simultaneous submission to another venue is not allowed. - System descriptions of up to 12 pages, describing new systems or significant upgrades of existing ones. - Extended abstracts of 2-5 pages reporting interesting and relevant work that has been published (or accepted for publication) in the last 12 months. Submissions should be anonymous, subject to double-blind reviewing procedure. Each submission will be reviewed by at least 2 PC members. Papers must be in PDF format and prepared according to the Springer LNCS format. For templates and instructions for authors, see http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html. ================================= PROCEEDINGS AND POST-PROCEEDINGS ================================= Workshop notes including all accepted papers will be distributed to AAMAS-2014 registrants in electronic form. Printed workshop notes will not be made available to workshop participants. Workshop post-proceedings are planned as a journal special issue of STUDIA LOGICA. The submissions to that special issue will be subject to another reviewing and selection process. ================================= Keynote Speakers ================================= Invited talk: Prof. John-Jules Meyer, Utrecht University, the Netherlands Invited tutorial: Prof. Thomas Agotnes, University of Bergen, Norway ================================= TUTORIAL SESSION ================================= According to the rules of AAMAS workshops, the workshop will include a one hour tutorial session covering topics of: (i) logic-based modeling of MAS, (ii) deduction and meta-logical properties and techniques (satisfiability, bounded model property, etc.), and (iii) applications of logics in MAS (e.g. Verification). ================================= IMPORTANT DATES ================================= Paper submission: January 22, 2014 Author notification: February 19, 2014 Camera-ready deadline: March 19, 2014 Workshop: May 5 or 6, 2014 ================================= WORKSHOP and PC CHAIRS ================================= Nils Bulling, Clausthal University of Technology, Germany Wiebe van der Hoek, University of Liverpool, UK ================================= PROGRAM COMMITTEE (confirmed members) ================================= Thomas Agotnes, University of Bergen, Norway Natasha Alechina, University of Nottingham, UK Thomas Bolander, Technical University of Denmark, Denmark Jan Broersen, Utrecht University, the Netherlands Juergen Dix, Clausthal University of Technology, Germany Michael Fisher, University of Liverpool, UK Pietro Galliani, Clausthal University of Technology, Germany Valentin Goranko, Technical University of Denmark Andreas Herzig, University of Toulouse, France Wojciech Jamroga, University of Luxembourg, Luxembourg Joao Leite, New University of Lisbon, Portugal Emiliano Lorini, Universite Paul Sabatier, France John-Jules Meyer, Utrecht University, the Netherlands Aniello Murano, Universita di Napoli Federico II, Italy Ram Ramanujam, Institute of Mathematical Sciences, Chennai, India Pierre-Yves Schobbens, University of Namur, Belgium Nicolas Troquard, Laboratory of Applied Ontology, Trento, Italy Dirk Walther, Dresden University of Technology, Germany Michael Wooldridge, University of Oxford, UK ================================= ORGANIZATION AND CONTACT ================================= The workshop is organized by Nils Bulling, Clausthal University of Technology and Wiebe van der Hoek, University of Liverpool.
