Invitation to Agent and Multi-agent Symposium (26-28 March. 2008)

------------------------ CALL FOR PAPERS AND SPECIAL SESSIONS ---------------------------
2nd International Symposium on Agents and Multi-agent Systems “ Technologies and 
Incheon, Korea 
26 Mar. “ 28 Mar. 2008 
KES-AMSTA-08 is an international scientific symposium for research in the field of agent 
and multi-agent systems. The aim of the symposium is to provide an internationally 
respected forum for scientific research in the technologies and applications of agent and 
multi-agent systems. 
Previous KES-AMSTA was held in Wroclaw, Poland (2007, LNAI 4496). 
KES-AMSTA-08 is organized by KES International and Inha University, Korea, and will 
take place in Incheon. 
Papers are invited from prospective authors with interests on the below indicated 
symposium topics and related areas of application. All contributions should be original 
and not published elsewhere or intended to be published during the review period. 
Contributions from more applied related fields in industry and commerce are very 
welcome. All accepted papers must be presented by one of the authors who must 
register for the conference. To ensure high quality, all papers will be thoroughly reviewed 
by the KES-AMSTA-08 International Programme Committee. The symposium 
proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in LNCS/LNAI series. Submitted 
papers should be prepared in LNCS/LNAI style and should not exceed 10 pages. 
Extended versions of selected papers will be considered for publication in special issues 
to be included in several journals indexed by ISI, KES Journal and Int. Journal of 
Intelligent Information and Database Systems. Ph.D. students are invited to submit paper 
s to Doctoral Track. Special sessions are also welcome.
