Software systems are becoming more intelligent in the kind of
functionality they offer users. At the same time, systems are be‐
coming more decentralized, with components that represent autono‐
mous 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 smarts
grids. A multiagent worldview is crucial to properly conceptual‐
izing, building, and governing such systems. It offers abstrac‐
tions 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 grow‐
ing research field of Computer Science, multiagent systems today
remains a unique enabler of interdisciplinary research.

*Submission - main track and special track*

The PRIMA 2016 Program Committee invites submissions of original,
unpublished, theoretical and applied work strongly relevant to
multiagent systems, including reports on the development of pro‐
totype and deployed agent systems, and of experiments that demon‐
strate novel agent system capabilities. An indicative list of
topics is provided below. For 2016, there will be Social Science
special track that will be handled by Michael Mäs (University of
Groningen). Accepted papers of this track will be offered a fast‐
track in JASSS.

Papers should be at most 16 pages in length in the Springer LNCS
format. All accepted papers will be published in Springer’s LNAI
series. A select number of papers will also be invited to submit
an extended version to a fast track of the Journal of Autonomous
Agents and Multi‐Agent Systems and ACM TAAS. There will be also
be two special issues: one with Fundamenta Informaticae and an‐
other with International Journal of Agent‐Oriented Software Engi‐
