MATES 2016

13th German Conference on Multi-Agent System Technologies
Klagenfurt, Germany, 27/09/2016 – 30/09/2016.
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. MATES 2016 will offer a competitive set of special topical sessions, invited keynotes by distinguished experts, and issues a Best Paper Award. The proceedings are published by Springer in its Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) series. The conference series is ERA/CORE ranked B.
