About the conference

Agents are one of the most prominent and attractive technologies in
computer science at the beginning of the new milennium. The technologies,
methods, and theories of agents and multiagent systems are currently
contributing to many diverse domains such as information retrieval, user
interfaces, electronic commerce, robotics, computer mediated collaboration,
computer games, education and training, ubiquitous computing, and social
simulation. They not only are a very promising technology, but are also
emerging as a new way of thinking, a conceptual paradigm for analyzing 
and for designing systems, for dealing with complexity, distribution, and
interactivity, while providing a new perspective on computing and 

The AAMAS conference series was initiated in 2002 as a merger of three 
successful related events: AGENTS (International Conference on 
Autonomous Agents),
ICMAS (International Conference on Multi-Agent Systems), and ATAL 
Workshop on Agent Theories, Architectures, and Languages).

The aim of the joint conference is to provide a single, high-profile, 
renowned forum for research in the theory and practice of autonomous 
agents and
multiagent systems. In particular, it brings together the world's 
active in this important, vibrant, and rapidly growing field.

AAMAS 2005 events include workshops and tutorials given by distinguished 
in the field, as well as an agent school, and doctoral mentoring program.

     * applications of autonomous agents & multi-agent systems
     * artificial social systems; conventions, norms, social laws & 
     * autonomous robots & robot teams
     * coalition formation & teamwork; cooperative distributed problem 
     * computational complexity in autonomous agents & multi-agent systems
     * cooperation & coordination; multi-agent planning
     * cooperative information systems, middle agents & brokers

     * multi-agent evolution, adaptation & learning
     * mobile agents
     * multi-agent simulation & modeling
     * negotiation, auctions, social choice mechanisms & argumentation
     * ontologies for agent systems
     * privacy & security issues in multi-agent systems
     * scalability & performance issues, robustness & dependability
     * synthetic agents; human-like, lifelike & believable qualities
     * theories of agency & autonomy
     * trust in agent systems; adjustable autonomy


AAMAS-05 encourages the submission of theoretical, experimental, 
methodological, and
applications papers. Theory papers should make clear the significance 
and relevance of
their results to the AAMAS community. Similarly, applied papers should 
make clear both
their scientific and technical contributions, and are expected to 
demonstrate a
thorough evaluation of their strengths and weaknesses in practice. 
Papers that address
isolated agent capabilities (for example, planning or learning) are 
discouraged unless
they are placed in the overall context of autonomous agent architectures 
or multi-agent
system organization and performance. A thorough evaluation is considered 
an essential
component of any submission. Authors are also requested to make clear 
the implications
of any theoretical and empirical results, as well as how their work 
relates to the
state of the art in autonomous agents and multi-agent systems research 
as evidenced in,
for example, previous AAMAS conferences. All submissions will be 
rigorously peer
reviewed and evaluated on the basis of the quality of their technical 
originality, soundness, significance, presentation, understanding of the 
state of the
art, and overall quality.

In addition to conventional conference papers, AAMAS-05 also welcomes 
the submission
of papers that focus on implemented systems, software, or robot 
prototypes. These
papers require a demonstration of the prototype at the conference and 
should include
a detailed project or system description specifying the hardware and 
software features
and requirements.
