== MATES 2013
== 11th German Conference on Multiagent System Technologies and
== 4th Joint Agent Workshops in Synergy (JAWS)
== September 15-19, 2013
== Koblenz, Germany
== http://www.mates2013.de

The MATES conference series aims at the promotion of and the
cross-fertilization between theory and application of intelligent
agents and multiagent systems. It provides an interdisciplinary
forum for researchers and members of business and industry to
present and discuss latest advances in agent-based computing with
prototyped or fielded systems in various application domains. 

In 2013 the MATES conference is accompanied by the fourth
installment of the Joint Agent Workshops in Synergy (JAWS 2013),
a series of dedicated workshops on different issues of agent
technology. Moreover, the event will also host a doctoral
consortium to support young researchers in their PhD studies.
This European joint event on agent technologies (MATES+JAWS) is
co-located with the German Conference on Artificial Intelligence
(KI 2013) and the 43th Symposium of the German Computer Science
Association (Informatik 2013).

Topics of Interest
MATES 2013 covers all areas of intelligent agents and multiagent
system technologies. The topics of interest include, but are not
limited to:

* Multiagent platform and tools
* Agent-oriented software engineering,
  model-driven design of multiagent systems
* Agent communication languages
* Autonomous robots and robot teams
* Advanced theories of collaboration: Modelling and formation of
  agent teams, groups, coalitions,and organizations
* Multiagent systems: Conventions, norms, institutions; trust and
* Adaptive agents and multiagent learning
* Multiagent planning and scheduling 
* Agent-based information retrieval
* Agents and P2P computing 
* Agent-based service coordination 
  (discovery, composition, negotiation, execution)
* Agent-based simulation of complex systems and applications 
* Embodied conversational actors and believable agents, and user
* Hybrid human and agent societies
* Semantic Web (services) and agents 
* Agents for the Social Web
* Agents for the Internet of Services
* Agents for the Internet of Things, pervasive computing
* Agents for cloud computing 
* Mobile agents
* Standards for agents and multiagent systems
* Prototyped or fielded agent-based applications in various
  domains (e.g. e-business, e-health, e-government, automotive,
  smart city, smart grids, renewable energy).

Paper Submission and Publication

Submitted papers, which have to be in English, must not exceed
14 pages in Springer LNCS style. Over-length submissions will be
rejected without review. Submissions are expected to report on
new research that makes a substantial technical contribution to
the field. In particular, submitted research must be unpublished
and not under review in any other conference or journal
(submissions that violate this requirement will be regarded as
self-plagiarism). Submission of papers is handled via ConfTool.
Please follow the guidelines on the website of the conference:
