AAMAS2019 invites proposals for the Workshop Program, to be held on May 11-12, 2019, immediately prior to the technical AAMAS conference.
The objective of the AAMAS2019 workshop program is to stimulate and facilitate discussion, interaction, and comparison of approaches, methods, and ideas related to specific topics, both theoretical and applied, in the general area of Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems. The AAMAS2019 workshops will provide an informal setting where participants will have the opportunity to discuss specific technical topics in an atmosphere that fosters the active exchange of ideas and supports community development.
All members of the AAMAS community are invited to submit workshop proposals for review. We encourage workshops that focus on emerging topics and applications, on open research questions and challenges, and on broader topics that are of interest to a wider community.
Workshops can vary in length from half a day to two days, though we expect most to be one full day in duration. As attendance will be limited to registered participants, workshop organisers and attendees must register for their workshop, whose fee will be separate from the main conference fee. Workshop attendees do not need to register for the main AAMAS conference, but are encouraged to do so.
AAMAS2019 reserves the right to cancel workshops whose attendance does not support their running costs.
|Proposal Submission||22th of Oct 2018
|Author Notification||30th of Nov 2018
REQUIREMENTS FOR SUBMISSION
The workshop proposals should be submitted electronically as a single PDF file at this link.
Proposals for workshops should be a maximum of five pages in length, and should contain the following information:
- Title and acronym of the workshop.
- A brief technical description of the workshop, specifying the workshop’s goals, the technical issues that it will address, the relevance of the workshop to the main conference, together with a brief discussion of why and to whom the workshop is of interest.
- A preliminary workshop format and a proposed schedule for organising the workshop, including the desired length for the workshop. Please include a brief description of how the organisers intend to encourage an atmosphere appropriate for a workshop, and indicate whether you intend to have any activities other than contributed talks (e.g., invited talks, panels, or posters).
- A list of related workshops held within the last three years, if any, and their relation to the proposed workshop. Please include, when information is available: when and where they have been offered in the past (i.e., with AAMAS or another conference), organisers’ names and affiliations, number of submitted/accepted papers, approximate attendance numbers, and followup publications (e.g., journal special issues).
For workshops that have had previous editions (even if they had different titles and were not held with AAMAS), include a list of URLs of the websites of the previous editions.
- Description of the paper review process and acceptance standards.
- The names, affiliations, URLs, and email addresses of the proposed workshop organisers. This committee must consist of two to four people knowledgeable about the technical issues to be addressed. The organising committee should include individuals from multiple institutions, spreading across different regions. By submitting the workshop proposal, the organisers commit to fulfilling their responsibilities, outlined below in the “Responsibilities” section.
- The name of the primary contact for the organising committee.
- One-page CVs of the organising committee members, focusing on the qualifications of the individual committee members with respect to organising an AAMAS workshop, and including a list of key publications demonstrating scholarship in the field and a list of workshops previously arranged, if any. Note that strong proposals should include organisers who bring differing perspectives to the workshop topic and who are actively connected to the communities of potential participants.
- A list of potential program committee members, including their titles and affiliations.
- A tentative list of places (distribution lists, websites, journals, etc.) where the workshop is planned to be advertised.
- If available, a list of tentatively confirmed attendees.
The selection of workshops for the final program will be based upon multiple factors, including the scientific/technical interest of the topics in relation to the AAMAS community, the clarity of the proposal in addressing the requested information, the innovative character of workshop topics, the crossdisciplinary nature of the workshop, the capacity of the organisers in leading a successful workshop, and the capacity of the conference workshop program. Please note that AAMAS may request proposers addressing similar or overlapping content areas to merge their proposals.
For all accepted proposals, AAMAS will be responsible for:
- Providing publicity for the workshop series as a whole.
- Providing logistic support and a meeting place for the workshop.
- Together with the organisers, determining the workshop date and time.
- AAMAS reserves the right to cancel workshops, for example in case of a low number of registrants.
