AIMS AND SCOPE
---------------------------
In the past two decades, we have seen an enormous increase of interest in agent-based computing and multi-agent systems (MAS). This field is set to become one of the key intelligent systems technologies in the 21st century. The EUMAS series aims to provide the main forum for academics and practitioners in Europe to discuss current MAS research and applications.

EUMAS 2020, the 17th instalment of the conference series, follows the tradition of previous editions (Oxford 2003, Barcelona 2004, Brussels 2005, Lisbon 2006, Hammamet 2007, Bath 2008, Agia Napa 2009, Paris 2010, Maastricht 2011, Dublin 2012, Toulouse 2013, Prague 2014, Athens 2015, Valencia 2016, Evry 2017, Bergen 2018), and encourages and supports activity in the research and development of multi-agent systems, in academic and industrial efforts.

The conference aspires to be the primary European forum for researchers interested in the theory and practice of autonomous agents and multi-agent systems. EUMAS enables researchers to meet, present challenges, preliminary and mature research results in an open and informal environment. To attract students as well as experienced researchers, preliminary as well as mature work, EUMAS 2020 offers three submission types and formal proceedings. Also, we will be working hard to arrange for the post-publication of selected papers in the form of a special issue of a high-quality journal in the area.

EUMAS 2020 is a designated event of the European Association of Multi-Agent Systems (EURAMAS): http://www.euramas.org (http://www.euramas.org/)

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Action and Planning
- Adaptation and Learning
- Agent Architectures
- Agent Programming Languages
- Agent Development Methodologies and Tools
- Agent-Based Simulations and Modeling
- Agent Organisations and Institutions
- Agent-oriented Software Engineering
- Agents and Complex Systems
- Applications of Multi-agent Systems

SUBMISSIONS
----------------------
EUMAS 2020 welcomes both original, unpublished papers, and papers that have been recently published in a relevant conference or journal.

We offer three types of submissions:

(1) *Full original papers* of 12 to 15 pages, describing work that has not been published or accepted for publication, nor is currently under review by another conference or journal.

(2) *Short original papers* of 6 to 8 pages reporting on views, ambitions or work in progress that has not been previously published, accepted for publication, or is not currently under review by another conference or journal.

(3) *Published papers* up to 15 pages reporting on interesting and relevant work that has been published (or accepted for publication) in the last 18 months.

Each submission will be peer-reviewed. All submissions should be formatted according to Springer's LNCS format. For templates and instructions for authors, see http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html . We request the submission of title and abstract prior to paper submission to support the tight schedule of reviewing. Authors must submit their abstracts and papers through the EUMAS 2020 Easychair submission site https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=eumas2020.

EUMAS 2020 and AT 2020 accepted papers will be published by Springer in a joint post-proceedings LNAI volume.
As such, they will be made available to several indexing services (including Scopus, CPCI, EI Engineering Index, and more).
Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers.
Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. We urge the authors to follow these guidelines from submission stage already.
Additional guidelines will be communicated after the conference to the authors of accepted papers for the preparation of the final versions to be included in the post-proceedings.

---------------------------------------------------
Opportunity for a JAAMAS publication
---------------------------------------------------
This year, the Journal of Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems (JAAMAS) will provide the opportunity to extended versions of the EUMAS-2020 best paper award winner (see below), the EUMAS-2020 best paper award runner-up, and one selected AT-2020 paper to be fast-tracked for the journal.

-------------------------
Best Paper Award
-------------------------
A Best Paper Award will be presented at the conference. The Award will be accompanied by a monetary prize of 300 CHF for the recipients, and is sponsored by the journal “Computers” https://www.mdpi.com/journal/computers .
-------------------------
