Call For Papers

5th International Conference on
Industrial Applications of Holonic and Multi-Agent Systems
August 29 - 31, 2011, Toulouse, France

in conjunction with DEXA 2011 events


Holonic and multi-agent systems provide a novel paradigm for managing, modelling and supporting complex systems. This concept has proved to be successful in number of industrial domains such as manufacturing, real-time control, supply chain management, resource allocation and production planning/scheduling, air traffic.

The conference aims to bring together researchers active in the area of holonic and multi-agent systems together with key engineers and industrial decision makers to share their views and experience in design, development and applying holonic and multi-agent systems for industrial problems.

The conference will be held in technical cooperation with the OOONEIDA Group and the technical co-sponsorship of the TC on Distributed Intelligent Systems, IEEE SMC.

The conference program includes a special section on Smart Industrial Systems (by Thierry Berger, Université de Valenciennes and Salima Hassas, Université Lyon).

SUGGESTED TOPICS (but not limited to):

Theoretical backgrounds behind holonic/agent concepts
Industrial applications of holonic and multi-agent systems (case-studies are specially appreciated) & applications in logistics
Specification of holonic and agent-based architectures and design methodologies
Differences and similarities between the concept of holons and agents
Communication principles and standards
Virtual organisations & holonic factories - reconfigurable factories
Agent-based system integration
Modeling and simulation tools
Reconfiguration tasks, coalition formation, knowledge ontologies
Novel application areas (health-care, environmental protection, government, humanitarian missions)
Visions and future trends of holonic and multi-agent systems
Standardization issues, security issues, industrial and logistic needs
Obstacles and barriers to industrial and logistic deployment


Authors are invited to submit research contributions or critiques of practical experience. Papers (in English) should not exceed 10 pages in Springer Verlag format. Authors are requested to submit their papers electronically to the conference web site. All accepted conference papers will be published in the conference proceedings in "Lecture Notes in Computer Science" (LNCS) series by Springer Verlag.
