Call For Papers

AT 2020
April 22-23, Thessaloniki, Greece


Agreement Technologies refer to computer systems in which autonomous software agents negotiate with one another, typically on behalf of humans, in order to come to mutually acceptable agreements. An agent may choose whether to fulfill an agreement or not, and it should fulfill it when there is an obligation to do so derived from the standing agreements. Autonomy, interaction, mobility and openness are key concepts studied within Agreement Technologies approach. Semantic alignment, negotiation, argumentation, virtual organizations, trust and reputation and several other technologies are part of the sandbox to define, specify and verify such systems.

​The International Conference Series on Agreement Technologies is an interdisciplinary forum that brings together researchers and practitioners working on the various topics comprising this emergent and vibrant field. It provides an avenue to discuss and exchange new ideas and techniques for the design, implementation and verification of next generation open distributed systems centered on the notion of agreement among computational agents.

AT 2020 follows the successful outcome of the previous editions of the International Conference Series on Agreement Technologies: AT 2012 in Dubrovnik, Croatia, AT 2013 in Beijing, China, AT 2015 in Athens, Greece, AT 2016 in Valencia, Spain, AT 2017 in Évry, France, and AT 2018 in Bergen, Norway.

AT 2020 will be held on 22 and 23 April 2020 in Thessaloniki, Greece, and will be co-located with EUMAS 2020.

We welcome original, unpublished papers, including but not limited to the following topics:

- Agreement technologies, architectures, environments, and methodologies
- Agreement patterns
- Argumentation and negotiation
- Coalition and team formation
- Real-time agreements
- Distributed decision making and coordination
- Computational social choice
- Social intelligence
- Logics for agreements
- Decision and game theoretic foundations for agreement
- Deliberative agreement: social choice and collective judgment
- Evolution of organizational structures
- Agent commitments
- Group planning agreements
- Social welfare, fairness and ethics in agreements
- Agreement and coordination optimization
- Semantic service coordination
- Normative systems
- Individual reasoning about norm adoption
- Collective deliberation about norm adoption
- Autonomic electronic institutions
- Inter-theory relations
- Semantic alignment
- Trust and reputation
- Applications of agreement technologies (e.g. web service composition, contract automation, supply chain automation, sensor networks, multi-robot systems, etc.)

We especially invite submissions by doctoral students who could benefit from receiving valuable feedback from the discussion-oriented focus of the conference.


Authors are invited to submit papers in the following two categories:

- Full Papers (12-15 pages): Papers in this category should represent original and previously unpublished work that is currently not under review in any conference or journal. Both basic and applied research papers are welcome.

- Short Papers (6-8 pages): These papers are intended for the discussion of ideas and concepts related to research and application of agreement technologies. Examples could include thoughtful critiques of the field, technical discussions of various implementation techniques, methodological contributions, and visionary ideas that propose long-term challenges and new research and application opportunities that are outside the current mainstream of the field.

Each submission will undergo a double-blind peer-review process with three peer reviews. All submissions must be written in English and formatted according to the Springer LNCS style (, which can be obtained from: We request the submission of a title and an abstract prior to paper submission to support the tight schedule of reviewing. Authors must submit their abstracts and papers through the AT 2020 submission site ​Each submitted paper should not contain any author information.


- Deadline for title and abstract registration: January 28, 2020
- Deadline for papers submission: February 4, 2020
- Notification to authors: March 4, 2020
- Camera Ready Papers: March 11, 2020
- Conference: 22 & 23 April 2020

All deadlines are at 23:59 UTC-12, i.e. before midnight on the respective date anywhere in the world.
