      Fourth International Joint Conference on


Utrecht University, Utrecht (The Netherlands)
July 25-29, 2005



The AAMAS-2005 Organising Committee invites proposals for
the Workshop Program, to be held immediately before to the
technical conferente (July, 25-26).

The main goal of the AAMAS-2005 workshops is to stimulate and
facilitate an active exchange, interaction and comparison of
approaches, methods, and ideas about specific (both theoretical
and applicative) topics on the Agents and Multi-Agent Systems domain.
Workshops should be organized so that an informal and participated
discussion among attendees is guaranteed. Members from all areas
of the AAMAS community are invited to submit workshop proposals
for review. Workshops on new emerging topics or specific relevant
aspects of consolidated ones are particularly encouraged.

Workshops can vary in length, but most will last a full day.
Workshop organizers and attendees must register for their workshop
and possibly for the main AAMAS conference.


Proposals for workshops should be from two to four pages in length,
and should contain the following information:

* A brief technical description of the workshop, specifying the
   workshop goals and the technical issues that will be its focus.

* A brief discussion of why and to whom the workshop is of interest.

* A list of related workshops held within the last two years, if any,
   and their relation to the proposed workshop.

* If applicable, detailed information about previous editions of
   the same workshop (e.g., number of submissions, number of attendees).

* A preliminary call for participation/papers.

* The names, postal addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses of
   the proposed workshop organizing committee. This committee should
   consist of three or four people knowledgeable about the technical
   issues to be addressed.
   These people cannot all work at the same institution.

* The name of the primary contact for the organizing committee;
   an email address of this person should be given.

* A description of the qualifications of the individual committee
   members with respect to organizing scientific events, including a
   list of workshops previously arranged by any members of the proposed
   organizing committee, if any.

All proposals should be submitted by electronic mail to
the Workshop Chair, Rino Falcone (r.falcone at istc.cnr.it),
in plain ASCII text, no later than

         **  December 20, 2004 **.

The committee's decision will be notified no later than

         **  January 10, 2005**.

The selection of the workshops to be included in the final AAMAS program
will be based upon a number of factors, including:
the scientific/technical interest of the topics, the quality of the
proposal, the need to avoid strictly overlapping workshops, and the
unavoidable need to limit the overall number of selected workshops.


For all accepted proposals, AAMAS will be responsible for:

  * Providing logistic support and a meeting place for the workshop.

  * Together with the organizers, determining the workshop date and time.

  * Duplicating working notes and distributing them to the participants.

Workshop organizers will be responsible for the following:

  * Setting up a Web site for the workshop according to the template that
    will be distributed upon acceptance.

  * Advertising the workshop and issuing a call for participation/papers.

  * Collecting submissions, notifying acceptances in due time, and
    ensuring a transparent and fair selection process. All workshop
    organizers commit themselves to adopt the same deadlines for
    submissions and notifications of acceptance, i.e.,

         - March 14, 2005 submission of contributions to workshops
         - April 18 2005, notifications

  * Making the PDF of the whole workshop notes available to the
    workshop chair in due time (approx. 7 weeks before the conference).

  * Ensuring that the workshop organizers and the participants get
    registered to the workshop and are invited to register to the main

AAMAS reserves the right to cancel any workshop if the above
responsibilities are not fulfilled or if too few attendees register
for the workshop.

AAMAS encourages the production of publications based on the workshop,
and leave this upon the workshop organizers.
