15th European Conference
on Multi-Agent Systems

Évry, 14-15 December 2017


EUMAS 2017 welcomes both original, unpublished papers, as well as papers that have been published in a relevant conference or journal.

EUMAS 2017 offers three types of submissions:

  1. Full original papers of 12 to 15 pages, describing work that has not been previously published, accepted for publication, nor is currently under review by another conference or journal.
  2. Short original papers of 6 to 8 pages reporting on views, ambitions or work in progress that has not been previously published, accepted for publication, nor is currently under review by another conference or journal.
  3. Published papers up to 15 pages reporting on interesting and relevant work that has been published (or accepted for publication) in the last 18 months.

Each submission has to be clearly marked (either in the abstract or introduction) as to which category it belongs. Each submission will be peer-reviewed. All submissions should be formatted according to Springer's LNCS format. For templates and instructions for authors, see http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html. We request the submission of title and abstract prior to paper submission to support the tight schedule of reviewing. Authors must submit their abstracts and papers through the EUMAS 2017 Easychair submission site https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=europeanconferencesi .

  • Action and Planning

We will give authors of accepted papers the opportunity to revise the camera-ready version of their paper(s) in order to incorporate feedback received upon the presentation of their work during the conference.


The best original papers will be invited for a special issue in the Knowledge Engineering Review (JCR Impact Factor 2015: 1.039)
