Call for papers

Formal Approaches to Multi-agent Systems (FAMAS'06)

Riva del Garda, Italy

Monday 28 August 2006


Affiliated with ECAI 2006, August 28 - September 1, 2006.

Submission deadline: April 15, 2006

Description of FAMAS

In recent years, multi-agent systems have come to form one of the key 
technologies for software development. The second edition of the 
FAMAS workshop series, after a success of FAMAS'03 affiliated to 
ETAPS'03 in Warsaw, aims at bringing together researchers from the 
fields of logic, theoretical computer science and multi-agent systems 
in order to discuss formal techniques for specifying and verifying 
multi-agent systems. Suggested, but not exclusive, topics of interest 
for the workshop are:

*	(modal) logics for multi-agent systems;
*	formal methods for verification of multi-agent systems,
         	e.g. model checking;
*	formal approaches to cooperation and multi-agent planning;
*	formal approaches to communication, coordination and negotiation;
*	formal analysis of games;
*	reasoning with uncertainty in a distributed environment;
*       	approximate reasoning.

Submission instructions
Submissions should be written in English, unpublished, and not 
simultaneously submitted for publication elsewhere. Papers should be
