Call for Demos

The PRIMA 2015 Demonstrations Track complements the Research Paper track of the conference and offers an opportunity for presenting late-breaking research results, on-going research projects, and speculative or innovative work in progress. The informal setting of the Demonstrations Track encourages presenters and participants to engage in discussions about the presented work. Such discussions can be invaluable inputs for the future work of the presenters, while offering participants an effective way to broaden their knowledge of the emerging research trends and to network with other researchers.

We invite submissions relevant to the area of multiagent systems and which address, but are not limited to, the topics of the Research Track. Reports on agent-based software systems, even if in progress, are welcome. Demonstrations are intended to showcase innovative agent-based related implementations and technologies. All submissions are intended to convey a scientific result or work in progress and should not be advertisements for commercial software packages.

Authors of full papers accepted for the Research Track are explicitly invited to submit a demonstration. The submission should be formatted as the other demonstrations but must cite the accepted full paper and needs to include an explanation of its added value with respect to the conference paper, i.e., a demonstration of a supporting prototype implementation.

Submission Information

Authors must submit a four-page extended abstract for evaluation. All submissions will undergo a review process, including those related to already accepted full papers. Decisions about acceptance will be based on relevance to multiagent systems, originality, potential significance, topicality and clarity. Authors are strongly encouraged to include in their submission a link where the demo (live or recorded video) can be found. They should also make clear what exactly will be demonstrated to the participants (e.g., what data sets will be used, which functionalities will be shown).

All demo papers have to be submitted electronically by sending an email with the paper in attachment to prima2015@easychair.org.

Submissions must use the PDF file format and must adopt the style of the Springer Publications format for Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). Details are provided on Springer's Author Instructions page.

At least one of the authors must be a registered participant at the conference, and attend the Demo Session to present the work. The abstracts of accepted demonstrations will be given to all conference attendees and published on the conference web site, but will not be published by Springer in the printed conference proceedings. They will, however, be compiled into a CEUR-WS Proceedings for easy Web retrieval and archival.
