25th International Conference on Principles and Practice of Multi-Agent Systems
Kyoto, Japan, 18/11/2024–24/11/2024

The 25th International Conference on Principles and Practice of Multi-Agent Systems (PRIMA 2024) invites submissions of original, unpublished, theoretical and applied work on any topic related to multi-agent systems, and encourages reports on the development of prototype and deployed agent systems, and of experiments that demonstrate novel agent system capabilities.

Software systems are rapidly becoming more intelligent in the functionality they offer to users. They are also becoming more decentralized, with components that act autonomously and must communicate among themselves or with human users, to achieve their goals. Examples of such systems include those in healthcare, disaster management, e-business, and smart grids. A multi-agent perspective is crucial to the proper conceptualization, deployment, and governance of such systems. Rooted in solid computational and software engineering foundations, this perspective offers abstractions such as intelligent agents, protocols, norms, organizations, trust and incentives, among others. As a large, but still growing research field of Computer Science, multi-agent systems today remain a unique enabler of interdisciplinary research.
