=================================================================

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
international workshops on different issues of agent technology:

- Workshop on Agent Based Computing: from Model to Implementation
   (ABC:MI 2013)
- Workshop on Multi-Agent Systems and Simulation (MAS&M 2013)
- Workshop on Smart Energy Networks & Multi-Agent Systems (SEN-MAS 2013)
- Workshop on Cyber-Physical Systems and Agents (CyPhySysA 2013)

The JAWS workshops of MATES will be held on September 16/17, 2013.
The main conference track of MATES will be from September 18-20, 2013.

Moreover, the event will also host a MATES doctoral mentoring program
(on Septmber 17, 2013) to support young researchers of this broad field
in their PhD studies: http://www.mates2013.de/doctoral-mentoring/

This European joint event on agent technologies (MATES+JAWS)
with one joint proceedings published by Springer is co-located with

- the German Conference on Artificial Intelligence (KI 2013) and
- the 43th Symposium of the German Computer Science Association GI
   (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
  reputation
* 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
  modelling
* 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).


Invited Speakers
================

In keeping with its tradition, MATES 2013 also offers several invited
keynotes  which are delivered by highly renowned scientists on relevant
topics of the broad area of intelligent agent technology.

The MATES keynote speakers for this year are

- Catholijn Jonker (TU Delft, The Netherlands)
- Gerhard Weiss (Maastricht Unicversity, The Netherlands)
- Raul Rojas (TU Berlin, Germany)

These keynotes are also shared as joint events with the KI 2013 conference.

Important Dates
===============
Deadline for Submission:    May 1, 2013

Notification of Authors:    June 7, 2013
Camera-Ready Papers:        June 28, 2013

Workshops:                  September 16/17, 2013
Conference:                 September 18-20, 2013


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.

For the doctoral mentoring track, the submitted paper must not
exceed 4 pages. The abstract should outline the PhD project
and should contain an introduction to the research field, a
description of related works and a description of the research
(done and/or planned). The abstract has to be written without
co-authors. Please note that until

The joint proceedings of the MATES conference will be published
by Springer as a volume of the LNAI (Lecture Notes in Artificial 
Intelligence) series.
It will contain all accepted papers of the MATES main conference track,
the JAWS workshops, and the MATES doctoral mentoring.

Please follow the submission guidelines on the website of the conference:
