Present CFP : 2022

Software systems are becoming more intelligent in the kind of functionality they offer users. At the same time, systems are becoming more decentralized, with components that represent autonomous entities who must communicate among themselves to achieve their goals. Examples of such systems range from healthcare and emergency relief and disaster management to e-business and smart grids. A multiagent worldview is crucial to properly conceptualize, build, and govern such systems. It offers abstractions such as intelligent agent, protocol, norm, organization, trust, incentive, and so on, and is rooted in solid computational and software engineering foundations. As a large but still growing research field of Computer Science, multiagent systems today remain a unique enabler of interdisciplinary research.

Information for Authors

PRIMA 2022 invites submissions of original, unpublished, theoretical, and applied work strongly relevant to multiagent systems, including reports on the development of a prototype and deployed agent systems, and of experiments that demonstrate novel agent system capabilities. An indicative list of topics is provided below.

The papers can be submitted to one of the following categories:

-Regular papers: these papers can be up to 16 pages in length, including references, in the Springer LNCS format.
-Survey papers: these papers can be up to 16 pages in length, including references, in the Springer LNCS format.
-Blue-Sky papers: these papers can be up to 8 pages in length, including references, in the Springer LNCS format. These ‘early-innovation’ papers will be reviewed with an emphasis on novelty/originality of the idea.
-Demo-papers: these papers can be up to 4 pages in length including references, in the Springer LNCS format. The paper should have a link of a video at most 10 minutes.


All the submitted papers must be in a form suitable for double-blind review. In order to make blind reviewing possible, authors must omit their names and affiliations from the paper. Also, while the references should include all published literature relevant to the paper, including previous works of the authors, it should not include unpublished works. When referring to one’s own work, use the third person rather than the first person. For example, say “Previously, Foo and Bar [2] have shown that…”, rather than “In our previous work [2] we have shown that…”. Such identifying information can be added back to the final camera-ready version of accepted papers.

All accepted papers for the main track will be published in Springer’s Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series (LNCS/LNAI).

Journal Publication
A selected number of papers will also be invited to submit an extended version to a fast track of some international journal.

Doctoral Consortium
PRIMA 2022 will hold a doctoral consortium meeting where students can present their work and interact with mentors.
