MATES 2015: Smart Things Working Together

The MATES conference series aims at the promotion of and the cross-fertilization between theory and application of intelligent agents and multiagent systems. It provides an interdisciplinary forum for researchers and members of business and industry to present and discuss latest advances in agent-based computing with prototyped or fielded systems in various application domains.
In 2015 the MATES conference will be co-located with the 45th Symposium of the German Computer Science Association GI (INFORMATIK 2015).
Moreover, the event will also host a Doctoral Consortium to support young researchers of this broad field in their PhD studies.

Topics of Interest
The motto of the 2015 edition of MATES will be "SMART THINGS WORKING TOGETHER". It refers to the concept of agents as active, autonomous system components that form self-organizing, adaptive systems through coordination and cooperation.

Thus, contributions that address topics such as the Internet of Things, Industry 4.0, or Cyber-Physical Systems are of special interest for and particularly welcome to MATES 2015.
Beyond this, MATES 2015 covers all areas of intelligent agents and multiagent system technologies. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Multiagent platform and tools
  • Agent-oriented software engineering, model-driven design of multiagent systems
  • Agent communication languages
  • Autonomous robots and robot teams
  • Advanced theories of collaboration: Modelling and formation of agent teams, groups, coalitions, and organizations
  • Multiagent systems: Conventions, norms, institutions; trust and reputation
  • Adaptive agents and multiagent learning
  • Multiagent planning and scheduling
  • Agent-based information retrieval
  • Agents and P2P computing
  • Agent-based service coordination (discovery, composition, negotiation, execution)
  • Agent-based simulation of complex systems and applications
  • Embodied conversational actors and believable agents, and user modelling
  • Hybrid human and agent societies
  • Semantic Web (services) and agents
  • Agents for the Social Web
  • Agents for the Internet of Services
  • Agents for the Internet of Things, pervasive computing
  • Agents for cloud computing
  • Mobile agents
  • Standards for agents and multiagent systems
  • Prototyped or fielded agent-based applications in various domains (e.g. e-business, e-health, e-government, automotive, smart city, smart grids, renewable energy).
