MABS 2022 : Multi-Agent Systems and Agent-Based Simulation
Conference Series : Multi-Agent Systems and Agent-Based Simulation
Call For Papers
MABS 2022 is part of the AAMAS 2022 conference taking place in Auckland, New Zealand on May 9-13, 2022.
The meeting of researchers from Multi-Agent Systems (MAS) engineering and researchers from the social, economic, and organisational sciences is extensively recognised for its role in cross-fertilisation. It has undoubtedly been an important source of inspiration for the body of knowledge that has been produced in the area. The MABS workshop series continues with its goal to bring together researchers interested in MAS engineering, with researchers focused on finding efficient solutions to model complex social systems, in areas such as economics, management, organisational and social sciences in general.
In all these areas, agent theories, metaphors, models, analysis, experimental designs, empirical studies, and methodological principles, all converge into simulation as a way of achieving explanations and predictions, conducting exploration and testing of hypotheses, as well as investigating better designs and systems.
We welcome your paper submissions from all areas of multi-agent-based simulation and particularly also of work in early stages, which can benefit from active discussions!
The range of technical issues that MABS has dealt with, and continues to deal with, is quite diverse and extensive. Topics relevant to this workshop include, but are not limited to, the following:
Simulation of Social and Intelligent behaviour
Applications and Empirical Work
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has brought about renewed interest in modelling of disease (and measures to control it) in societies. We propose for 2022 to include a special session on simulations related to the crisis, e.g., Modelling of transmission processes, societies, or effects of interventions. We especially encourage the submission of novel and original approaches that are not fully developed and can benefit from discussions.
One of the ten areas of interest in the main conference in 2022 is modelling and simulation of societies. This aligns closely with this workshop, but the purpose of the workshop is to allow more active discussion, particularly of work which may still be in early stages and not ready for presentation in the main conference. The workshop has run alongside the main conference since AAMAS was first held in Bologna in 2002 and continues to attract a diverse and enthusiastic group of participants.
==Submission of Papers (Deadline: Jan 30, 2022)==
Submissions are limited to 12 pages formatted according to the Springer LNCS style and must be electronically submitted before the submission deadline through the workshop conference system, which is available at: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=mabs2022
All contributions will be peer-reviewed by two or three independent PC members. The evaluation criteria of contributions will be based on originality, quality, clarity, and its relevance to the workshop.
All accepted papers will be printed in the AAMAS workshop proceedings. In addition, following the tradition of the previous MABS workshops, we intend to publish the accepted papers, after a further reviewing process, in the Springer Multi-Agent-Based Simulation book series, LNAI.
Submission deadline: Jan 30, 2022
