Aims and Scope


The MATES conference aims at the promotion of and the 
cross-fertilization between theory and application of intelligent agents 
and multiagent systems. It provides an interdisciplinary forum for 
researchers and members of business and industry to present and discuss 
latest advances in agent-based computing with prototyped or fielded 
systems in various application domains.

MATES 2017 will offer a competitive set of special topical sessions, PhD 
mentoring track, invited keynotes by distinguished experts, and issues a 
Best Paper Award.

The proceedings are published by Springer in its LNAI (Lecture Notes in 
Artificial Intelligence) subseries of the LNCS (Lecture Notes in 
Computer Science) series.

Topics of Interest


MATES 2017 covers all areas of intelligent agents and multiagent system 
technologies. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Multiagent platforms and tools

- Agent communication languages

- Validation and verification of (multi)agent technologies

- Agent-oriented software engineering, model-driven design of multiagent 

- Standards for agents and multiagent systems

- Multiagent systems: Conventions, norms, institutions, trust and reputation

- Advanced theories of collaboration: Modelling and formation of agent 
teams, groups, coalitions, and organizations

- Adaptive agents and multiagent learning

- Agent-based simulation of complex systems and applications

- Agent-based modeling and social simulation

- Mobile agents

- Autonomous robots and robot teams

- Human-agent teamwork (Humans, software agents, robots, animals, animoids)

- Embodied conversational actors and believable agents, and user modelling

- Recommender agents

- Agent-based planning and scheduling

- Agent-based information retrieval

- Agent-based distributed data mining

- Agent-based service discovery, composition, negotiation

- Agents for the semantic Web

- Agents for the social Web

- Agents for the Internet of Services

- Agents for the Internet of Things, pervasive computing

- Agents for cloud computing

- Ethical aspects of (multi)agent systems design and deployment

- Prototyped or fielded agent-based applications in various domains 
(e.g. e-business, e-health, e-government, automotive, smart city, smart 
grids, renewable energy).

MATES PhD mentoring track


The MATES PhD mentoring (doctoral consortium) is meant to support PhD 
students working in the area of web intelligence. It offers a platform 
to researchers in all stages of their PhD studies to present and discuss 
their ideas in a professional academic environment. The program provides 
an opportunity to PhD students to interact with their peers as well as 
with experienced researchers in the field, and to receive valuable 
feedback on their work and advice for their future careers. In 
particular, each student will be assigned a member of the WI doctoral 
consortium committee, who is an experienced researcher in the relevant 
field and will be available for personal interactions during the day of 
the MATES PhD mentoring track. More information is to be found on the 
MATES homepage.

The main goals of the PhD mentoring session are

- to give PhD researchers an opportunity to get feedback and suggestion 
on their work from experienced researchers and their peers.

- to interact with other PhD researchers and to get an overview of the 
field of multi-agent systems.

- to get advice for their (academic) career.

- to provide networking opportunities.

Paper Submission:

Submissions to the PhD mentoring session (PhD short papers) should 
provide information on the following aspects of the PhD work:

- Motivation

- State of the Art

- Methodical approach

- Preliminary results/findings (optional

- Affiliation and contact details of the PhD supervisor

PhD short papers are up to 6 pages long, written in English and 
formatted with Springer LNCS style. The selection process takes into 
account the quality of the submitted PhD short paper which will be 
peer-reviewed by members of the MATES PhD mentoring program committee.

The PhD short papers must be submitted electronically via e-mail to 

Presentation and Publication:

All accepted PhD short papers will be assigned a slot for oral 
presentation during the MATES PhD mentoring session.In addition, a 
selected set of these accepted papers describing original, unpublished 
work mature enough for publication will be included in theMATES 
proceedings. If you would like to participate actively in this event 
please contact both chairs by Email:

Invited Speakers


In keeping with its tradition, MATES 2017 offers invited keynotes which 
are delivered by highly renowned experts on relevant topics of the broad 
area of intelligent agent technology.
