11th International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems
Valencia, Spain, 04/07/2012–08/07/2012

AAMAS is the leading scientific conference for research in autonomous agents and multiagent systems. The AAMAS conference series was initiated in 2002 by merging three highly respected meetings:  the International Conference on Multi-Agent Systems (ICMAS); the International Workshop on Agent Theories, Architectures, and Languages (ATAL); and the International Conference on Autonomous Agents (AA). The aim of the joint conference is to provide a single, high-profile, internationally respected archival forum for scientific research in the theory and practice of autonomous agents and multiagent systems.


AAMAS 2012 is the eleventh conference in the AAMAS series, following enormously successful previous conferences, and will be held at the Universitat Politècnica de València in Valencia, Spain, June 4-8,2012.
