In the last two decades, we have seen a significant increase of interest in agent- based computing. This field is now set to become one of the key intelligent systems technologies in the 21st century. The aim of the EUMAS series is to provide a forum for academics and practitioners in Europe at which current research and application issues are presented and discussed.
EUMAS 2017, the 15th instalment of the conference series, follows the tradition of previous editions (Oxford 2003, Barcelona 2004, Brussels 2005, Lisbon 2006, Hammamet 2007, Bath 2008, Agia Napa 2009, Paris 2010, Maastricht 2011, Dublin 2012, Toulouse 2013, Prague 2014, Athens 2015, Valencia 2016), and aims to encourage and support activity in the research and development of multi- agent systems, in academic and industrial efforts.
The conference is primarily intended as a European forum for anybody interested in the theory and practice of autonomous agents and multi-agent system to meet, present challenges, preliminary and mature research results in an open and informal environment. To attract students as well as experienced researchers, preliminary as well as mature work, EUMAS 2017 offers three submission types and formal proceedings. Also, post-publication in form of a special issues of a high-quality journal in the area are planned.
EUMAS is co-located with the 5th edition of the International Agreement Technologies (AT) Conference. This will allow us to produce a rich and inspiring program of high-quality papers reporting original results. Sessions of both conferences will be open to all participants of EUMAS and AT.
EUMAS 2017 is a designated event of the European Association for Multi-Agent Systems (EURAMAS) : http://www.euramas.org
