CALL FOR PAPERS
The Eighth International Joint Conference on
AUTONOMOUS AGENTS AND MULTI-AGENT SYSTEMS (AAMAS-09)
Budapest, Hungary
May 10--15, 2009
http://www.conferences.hu/AAMAS2009/

(please note that, while some prior publicity has given a start date
of May 11, the conference as whole will begin with tutorials and
doctoral consortium on May 10)

INTRODUCTION

AAMAS is the leading scientific conference for research in autonomous
agents and multiagent systems. The AAMAS conference series was
initiated in 2002 by merging highly respected individual conferences:
- the International Conference on Multi-Agent Systems (ICMAS);
- the International Workshop on Agent Theories, Architectures, and
Languages (ATAL);
- the International Conference on Autonomous Agents (AA).
The aim of the joint conference is to provide a single, high-profile,
internationally respected archival forum for scientific research in
the theory and practice of autonomous agents and multiagent
systems. See http://www.ifaamas.org for more information.

AAMAS-09 is the Eighth conference in the AAMAS series, following
enormously successful previous conferences at Bologna, Italy (2002),
Melbourne, Australia (2003), New York, USA (2004), Utrecht, The
Netherlands (2005), Hakodate, Japan (2006), Honolulu, USA (2007) and
Estoril, Portugal (2008). AAMAS-09 will be held at the Europa Congress
Center, Budapest, Hungary.

INFORMATION FOR AUTHORS

AAMAS-09 encourages the submission of *original* papers covering
theoretical, experimental, methodological, and application issues in
autonomous agents and multiagent systems. Authors are discouraged to
submit papers describing work that has already been published in
previous AAMAS workshops with post-proceedings publications and/or
published as short papers in previous AAMAS proceedings, unless that
the authors *clearly* demonstrate significant new content with respect to
the previous publication.

The main theme of AAMAS-09, based on feedback from previous
conferences, will be reinforcing the rich panorama of
*interconnections* in the field. We encourage the community, and the
authors in particular, to reflect about their work not as belonging to
just a niche in a long list of topics, but rather as a point in an
abstract topological space defined by three complementary axes: (i)
the *focus* of the work contribution being presented, (ii) the
*description level* of the contribution and, (ii) the intellectual
*inspiration source* of the approach used in the research.

Every paper will be evaluated appropriately with respect to each of
these three axes. Moreover, the use of this topological space will
help this year and future AAMAS conference organizers to better stress
some particular points in this space to be highlighted in the program,
as it was the case of the special tracks presented in AAMAS-08 and
will be the case of the special areas in AAMAS-09.


DESCRIPTION LEVEL AXE

AAMAS-09 encourages the submission of papers in several descriptive
styles: (i) theoretical, (ii) experimental
(architecture/system-oriented), (iii) methodologies/languages
(design/software engineering/programming-oriented), and (iv)
applications. Every paper should make clear its contribution to the
AAMAS field, place itself in the context of relevant related work, and
evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of its approach.

Theoretical papers should make clear the significance and
application-relevance of the results to the AAMAS community.

Experimental papers should address broad issues in the context of
autonomous agents or multi-agent systems architectures or performance
rather than isolated generic capabilities (such as general planning or
learning).

Methodological and language papers should propose advances in MAS
analysis/design methodologies, process and process models for
agent-oriented software development, frameworks for MAS specific
properties (like cooperation, coordination etc...), agent verification
and validation techniques/tools, and multi-agent programming
languages, deployment platforms and development tools.

Application papers should make clear both their scientific and
technical contributions, and their practical strengths and weaknesses.

INSPIRATION SOURCE AXE

AAMAS-09 welcomes papers from many intellectual approaches, including
artificial intelligence, distributed systems, economics,
social/management sciences, (multi-)robotics, and
biologically-inspired approaches.

FOCUS AXE

Broadly speaking, the AAMAS community-specific topics of interest are
focussed in individual agents, their environment, their interactions,
and their social/organizational structure.

Agent Focus: contributions are focussed on the elements for
structuring/defining/analyzing individual processing entities:
- agent architectures
- agent reasoning/deliberation/decision mechanisms
- agent perception and action
- believable agents
- believable agents
- agents models of emotion, motivation, personality, etc.

Environment Focus: contributions are focussed on the elements for
structuring/defining/analyzing the the external world (including
humans) and its information exchange with the processing entities:
- environmmental entities
- agent-human interaction
- interface agents

Interaction Focus: contributions are focussed on the elements for
structuring/defining/analyzing the information and control exchange
between the processing entities
- agent communication languages
- interaction protocols
- ontological / semantic interactions
- conflict resolution and negotiation
- argumentation theories
- coordination mechanisms
- multi-agent planning and learning
- reputation and trust
- privacy and security

Social/Organizational Structure Focus: costributions are focussed
on elements for structuring/defining/analyzing the identity and
properties of multiple processing entities
- groups and teams
- norms and normative behavior
- commitments
- autonomy
- organizations and institutions
- organizational planning/learning
- organizational reputation and trust
- coalition formation
- open systems

Comprehensive/Cross-cutting Focus: contributions dealing with all or
more than one of the previous focus
- complete applications demonstrating several different significant foci
- evaluation techniques
- ethical and legal issues
- standardization efforts in industry and commerce
- meta-papers (on the state of agent research, on the conference, etc.)

SPECIAL  AREAS

Particularly this year, we are strongly encouraging papers that focus on some
of the issues located at the topological space described above:

Inspiration source axe:
- (Multi-)Robotics
- Social Sciences

Description level axe
- Methodologies/languages
- Applications

Focus axe
- (Virtual) Agents
- Social/Organizational Structure

In addition to conventional conference papers, AAMAS-09 will also
include a demonstration track for work focusing on implemented
systems, software, or robot prototypes; and an industry track for
descriptions of industrial applications of agents. The submission
processes for the demonstration and industry tracks will be separate
from the main paper submission process.

SUBMISSION DETAILS

This year the conference is soliciting regular papers (8 pages) and
extended abstracts (2 pages). Extended abstracts are encouraged as a
mechanism for the timely reporting of interesting but preliminary
work, that may not as yet have the level of evaluation or detail that
would be expected for a regular paper. The program chairs may, at
their discretion, accept papers that were submitted as regular papers
as extended abstracts, if the authors have explicitly agreed to this
when registering their papers.

Accepted regular papers will receive a slot for oral presentation in
the conference. In addition, both regular and extended abstracts will
be presented in poster sessions and appear in the conference
proceedings.

Reviews will be double blind, therefore authors are requested to avoid
including anything that can be used to reveal their
identity. Submissions will be peer reviewed rigorously and evaluated
on the basis of adherence, originality, soundness, significance,
presentation, understanding of the state of the art, and overall
quality of their technical contribution. More details about the review
process can be found in the conference page.

Authors should refer to the conference page to download the adequate
paper formats and the instructions to access the Confmaster system.

Full instructions and style files are now available, and submission
will be possible from 20th September onwards.
