CFP - 7th International Workshop on Engineering Multi-Agent Systems (EMAS 2019) Co-located with AAMAS 2019 13th-14th of May, 2019, Montreal, Canada Info: http://www.csc.liv.ac.uk/~lad/emas2019 Contact: emas.aamas2019@gmail.com

A main unifying theme underlying Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning is the idea of an intelligent agent able to reason, act, interact, and learn. This metaphor has stimulated much research in AI and particularly in Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems (MAS), giving rise to research in agent-oriented software engineering, programming multi-agent systems, and declarative agent languages and technologies.

EMAS 2019 aims to gather researchers and practitioners working in these areas to present and discuss their research and emerging results in MAS engineering. The overall purpose of this workshop is to facilitate the cross-fertilisation of ideas and experiences in the various fields to:

  1. Enhance knowledge and expertise in MAS engineering and improve the state or-the art;
  2. Define new directions for MAS engineering that are useful to practitioners, relying in results and recommendations coming from different but continuous research areas;
  3. Investigate how practitioners can use or need to adapt established methodologies for the engineering of large-scale and open MAS;
  4. Involve more master and PhD students.


The main topics include but are not limited to:

  • Software engineering methodologies and techniques, and development concerns for MAS
  • Formal methods and declarative technologies for specification, verification, and engineering of MAS
  • Programming frameworks, languages, models and abstractions for all aspects of MAS
  • Tools and testbeds
  • Empirical studies and (industrial) experience reports on engineering MAS applications

For a detailed list of subtopics, see http://www.csc.liv.ac.uk/~lad/emas2019/cfp.html


We solicit four types of submission:

  • Regular papers should (1) clearly describe innovative and original research, or (2) report a survey on a research topic in the field, or (3) explain how existing techniques have been applied to a real-world case. (16 pages (excluding references) in LNCS format).
  • Short papers should describe novel and promising ideas and/or techniques that are in an early stage of development. To that end, short papers will be reviewed under specific review guidelines (8 pages (excluding references) in LNCS format).
  • Doctoral project papers should describe a research effort of an MSc student or the dissertation research of a PhD student in the field of engineering multi-agent systems. The paper should clearly describe the problem tackled, a justification why this problem is important, the research method, the (expected) contributions of the research, and the evaluation. This paper can be co-authored by the student and their supervisor(s) only (6 pages (excluding references) in LNCS format).
  • Tool, testbeds and demo papers should describe a novel tool or demonstration in the field of engineering multi-agent systems. Submission may range from early prototypes to in-house or pre-commercialised products. Authors of other EMAS 2019 papers are also welcomed to submit an accompanying tool/demo paper. The paper should provide a link to supplementary material that allows the reviewers to evaluate the submission such as website or movie link (4 pages (excluding references) in LNCS format).

Submission policy: all papers should be original and not be submitted elsewhere. The review process is single blind: submissions should not be blind, reviewers will be. The LNCS formatting style is available via: http://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines The Easychair submission page can be found here: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=emas2019. When you enter the title of your paper in the data section in EasyChair, you must add as the first word the category to which the paper has been submitted (this first word does not need to be included in the submitted paper):

  • REGULAR for regular papers (16 pages (excluding references))
  • SHORT for short papers (8 pages (excluding references))
  • DOCTORAL for doctoral project papers (6 pages (excluding references))
  • DEMO for tools, testbeds, and demo papers (4 pages (excluding references))

Authors of accepted papers will be invited to submit revised and extended versions of the EMAS papers for inclusion in the post-proceedings that we will be published as a volume in Springer's Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence.


Submission deadline (EXTENDED): 19 Feb, 2019 Notification: 10 March, 2019 Camera-ready deadline: 1 April, 2019 EMAS: 13-14 May, 2019
