The purpose of the CLIMA Workshop Series is to provide a forum
for discussing techniques, based on computational logic, for
representing, programming and reasoning about agents and multi-agent
systems in a formal way.

Following the previous fourteen, very successful, editions, the 15th
CLIMA will take place in Prague, Czech Republic, on the 18th and 19th of

which have not been accepted for publication nor are currently under review
for another journal or conference. Submissions will be peer-reviewed by at
least three PC members.

LNCS Proceedings: We intend to publish CLIMA?s Proceedings as a volume in the
Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science to be available in time for the

Journal Special Issue: After the workshop, authors of selected papers will
be invited to extend and re-submit their work to be considered for inclusion
in a CLIMA Special Issue of the Journal of Logic and Computation.

Detailed information regarding CLIMA, its topics of interest, the two Special
