The AAMAS-2013 Organizing Committee invites proposals for the Workshop Program to be held on May 6-7, 2013
immediately prior to the main technical program of the AAMAS conference. The main goal of the AAMAS-2013
workshops is to stimulate and facilitate discussion, interaction, and comparison of approaches, methods,
and ideas related to specific topics, both theoretical and applied, in the general area of Autonomous Agents
and Multiagent Systems.

The AAMAS-2013 workshops will provide an informal setting where participants will have the opportunity to
discuss specific technical topics in an atmosphere that fosters the active exchange of ideas.

Members from all areas of the AAMAS community are invited to submit workshop proposals for review. Workshops
on new and emerging topics, applications, and on broader topics catering to the broader community are particularly
encouraged. Workshops can vary in length, but most will be one full day in duration. Workshop organizers and
attendees must register for their workshop and preferably also for the main AAMAS conference. Attendance is
limited to registered participants only.

   (i.e., with AAMAS or another conference), organizers names and affiliations, number of submissions, acceptances
   and registered attendees, and follow-up publications, if any (e.g., journal special issue).
5. A preliminary workshop agenda and a proposed schedule for organizing the workshop. This should include a brief
   description of how the organizers intend to encourage an atmosphere appropriate for a workshop.
6. Description of the paper review process and acceptance standards.
7. If available, a list of tentatively confirmed attendees.

Wolf Ketter ([log in to unmask]) and Satoshi Kurihara ([log in to unmask]) as soon as possible but no later than:
Wednesday October 31, 2012.

The selection of the workshops to be included in the final AAMAS program will be done by the general chairs of AAMAS
2013 based on the advice of the workshop chairs. The selection is based upon multiple factors, including: the
scientific/technical interest of the topics, the clarity of the proposal in addressing the requested information,
the innovativeness of workshop topics, the cross-disciplinary nature of the workshop, and the capacity of the
conference workshop program. Note that authors of proposals addressing similar and/or overlapping content areas
and/or audiences may be asked to merge their proposals.


*** Responsibilities of AAMAS and workshop organizers ***

For all accepted proposals, AAMAS will be responsible for:
- Providing publicity for the workshop series as a whole.
- Providing logistic support and a meeting place for the workshop.
- Together with the organizers, determining the workshop date and time.
- Provide one free workshop registration when the workshop has more than 15 registrations.

Workshop organizers will be responsible for:
- Setting up a website for the workshop.
- Advertising the workshop and issuing a call for papers (by DECEMBER 12, 2012) and a call for participation (by MARCH 13, 2013).
- Collecting and evaluating submissions, notifying authors of acceptance or rejection on a timely basis, and ensuring
  a transparent and fair selection process.
- All workshop organizers are strongly advised to adopt the same deadlines for paper submissions and notifications
  of acceptance, i.e.,
    January 30, 2013: Submissions of contributions to workshops;
    February 27, 2012: Notifications
- Making the PDF of the whole workshop notes available to the workshops chair by March 13, 2013, as well as a list of audio-visual
  requirements and any special room requirements. The AAMAS-2013 workshop notes will be included in the flash drive containing the
  AAMAS-2013 conference proceedings. To that end, please include the following sentence in your call for papers: "Workshop notes
  including all accepted papers will be distributed to AAMAS-2013 registrants in electronic form. Printed workshop notes will NOT
  be made available to workshop participants."
- Ensuring that the workshop notes or individual papers are available from the workshops websites, as appropriate. Ensuring
  that the workshop organizers and the participants register for the workshop and are invited to register to the main conference
  (at least one author must register for the workshop in order for a paper to appear in the workshop proceedings). AAMAS reserves
  the right to cancel any workshop if the above responsibilities are not fulfilled.
