6th MASTA @ EPIA 2011
Thematic Track on Multi-Agent Systems: Theory and Applications

10-13 October 2011, Lisbon, Portugal

http://epia2011.appia.pt/

Submission deadline: May 10, 2011
---------------------------------- - - - - - - - - - -  -  -  -  -   -

---------------------------------- - - - - - - - - - -  -  -  -  -   -
Introduction
---------------------------------- - - - - - - - - - -  -  -  -  -   -

Since 1993, the area of Multi-Agent Systems (MAS) has been present in 
all EPIA Conferences, both as individual tracks and as autonomous 
workshops. Focusing on a fundamental subject of Artificial Intelligence, 
the 6th edition of Multi-Agent Systems: Theory and Applications - MASTA 
2011 Thematic Track, will be a forum for presenting and discussing the 
most recent and innovative work on MAS.

Departing, from the end of the 1980’s, from the two main branches of 
Decentralized Artificial Intelligence and Distributed Problem Solving, 
research on MAS has developed in areas of increasing specialization and 
autonomy as diverse as agent theories and architectures, cognitive 
modelling, coordination, negotiation and argumentation, social 
organization and social simulation, swarm intelligence, and 
agent-oriented programming.

Agent technology has been used to solve real-world problems in a range 
of industrial and commercial applications, including manufacturing, 
supply chain management, process control, telecommunications, air 
traffic control, transportation systems, and business process management.

Aims and Scope
---------------------------------- - - - - - - - - - -  -  -  -  -   -

Research on MAS has a vigorous, exciting tradition and has led to 
important theories and systems. However, new trends and concerns are 
still emerging and form the basis of current and future research. This 
thematic track is intended to provide a discussion forum on the most 
recent and innovative work in all areas of MAS.

The unifying focus of the thematic track will be on methodological 
aspects. Both theoretical and practical research should be situated in 
the context of existing or new methodologies. This will not preclude any 
specific topic, but preference will be given to research work that 
establishes some connection with the methodological aspects or to 
successful applications built upon some methodology.
