26-30 October 2015, 18th International Conference on Principles and Practice of Multi-Agent Systems (PRIMA 2015), Bertinoro, Italy

Date: 26-30 October 2015
Location: Bertinoro, Italy
Deadline: 17 June 2015

Agent-based Computing addresses the challenges in managing distributed computing systems and networks through monitoring, communication, consensus-based decision-making and coordinated actuation. As a result, intelligent agents and multi-agent systems have demonstrated the capability to use intelligence, knowledge representation and reasoning, and other social metaphors like 'trust', 'game' and 'institution', not only to address real-world problems in a human-like way but also to transcend human performance. This has had a transformative impact in many application domains, particularly in e-commerce, and also in planning, logistics, manufacturing, robotics, decision support, transportation, entertainment, emergency relief & disaster management, and data mining & analytics.

PRIMA 2015 invites submissions of original, unpublished, theoretical and applied work on any such topic, and encourages reports on the development of prototype and deployed agent systems, and of experiments that demonstrate novel agent system capabilities. There will be a special track on applications of multi-agent systems. The papers for this track would report experiences on using agents in an application domain and also discuss the challenges in deploying them. Two types of contributions are solicited: full papers (presenting original theoretical and/or experimental research) and short papers (showcasing works-in-progress). Deadline for abstracts: 17th June 2015.
