AAMAS banner

AAMAS is the leading scientific conference for research in autonomous agents and multi-agent systems. The AAMAS conference series was initiated in 2002 as a merger of three highly respected individual conferences: the International Conference in Autonomous Agents, the International Workshop on Agent Theories, Architectures, and Languages, and the International Conference on Multi-Agent Systems. The aim of the joint conference is to provide a single, high-profile, internationally respected archival forum for research in all aspects of the theory and practice of autonomous agents and multi-agent systems.

Tutorials and workshops will be held on Monday May 12th and Tuesday May 13th, 2008. Accepted technical papers and invited talks will be presented from Wednesday May 14th through Friday May 16th, 2008.

This year AAMAS will feature two special tracks: one on Multi-Robots and the other on Virtual Agents. The goal is to provide an opportunity for interaction and cross-fertilization between the AAMAS community and researchers working in these fields and to strengthen links between the two communities. For more information please contact Pedro Lima at robotics@aamas2008.org and Elisabeth Andre at synthetic@aamas2008.org.  AAMAS will also continue to feature an 'Industry and Applications' track and a Demonstrations session.

Submission deadline for main, multi-robot, and virtual agents tracks: Oct 23 (abstract), Oct 26 (full paper).
All deadlines are midnight, Eastern Standard Time (New York time).

Authors can specify the paper track during the paper submission process.

We are soliciting both long and short papers. Long papers will receive a slot for oral presentation, and both long and short papers will be presented in poster sessions and appear in the proceedings. All submissions will be (double) blind reviewed.

AAMAS is being held in cooperation with AAAI.
