21th International Conference on Principles and Practice of Multi-Agent Systems

Tokyo, Japan, 29/10/2018 – 02/11/2018

Agent-based Computing addresses the challenges in managing distributed computing systems and networks through monitoring, communication, consensus-based decision-making and coordinated actuation. As a result, intelligent agents and multi-agent systems have demonstrated the capability to use intelligence, knowledge representation and reasoning, and other social metaphors like 'trust', 'game' and 'institution', not only to address real-world problems in a human-like way but also to transcend human performance. This has had a transformative impact in many application domains, particularly in e-commerce, and also in planning, logistics, manufacturing, robotics, decision support, transportation, entertainment, emergency relief & disaster management, and data mining & analytics.

The 21st International Conference on Principles and Practice of Multi-Agent Systems (PRIMA 2018) invites submissions of original, unpublished, theoretical and applied work on any such topic, and encourages reports on the development of prototype and deployed agent systems, and of experiments that demonstrate novel agent system capabilities.

All accepted papers for the main track will be published in Springer's Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series (LNCS/LNAI). A select number of papers for the main track will also be invited to submit an extended version to a fast track of the Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems.

PRIMA2018 will include invited talks and presentations for refereed submissions, as well as workshops. Planned plenary speakers include Prof. Manuela M. Veloso (J.P. Morgan), Prof. Michael Luck (KCL), President Hideyuki Nakashima (SCU), and Associate Prof. Fujio Toriumi (UT).
