Agreement Technologies 2020

This year, the Journal of Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems (JAAMAS) offers the opportunity to accelerate an AT 2020 document selected for the journal. THE AT 2020 will be held in Thessaloniki, Greece, on 22 and 23 April 2020, in collaboration with EUMAS 2020. The registration fee covers access to both conferences. The International Conference Series on Agreement Technologies is an interdisciplinary forum that brings together researchers and practitioners who address the various themes that encompass this emerging and living field. It provides an opportunity to discuss and exchange new ideas and techniques for the design, implementation and verification of next-generation distributed open systems based on the concept of agreement between computational agents. Organizer: AT 2020 follows the results of 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 Vry, France, and AT 2018 in Bergen, Norway. Agreement technologies refer to computer systems in which autonomous software agents negotiate with each other, usually on behalf of man, to conclude agreements acceptable to both parties. An agent may choose whether or not to comply with an agreement, and should comply if there is an obligation under the permanent agreements. Autonomy, interaction, mobility and openness are key concepts studied in The Agreement Technologies approach. Semantic orientation, negotiation, reasoning, virtual organizations, trust and reputation, and many other technologies are part of the sandbox to define, specify and verify these systems. The documents accepted by EUMAS 2020 and AT 2020 are published by Springer in a joint LNAI band, in accordance with the procedure. As such, they are provided to several indexing services (including Scopus, CPCI, EI Engineering Index and more).

Authors should consult springer authors` guidelines and use their procedural models, either for LaTeX or Word, to carry out their work. Springer encourages authors to incorporate their ORCIDs into their papers. We urge authors to follow these guidelines as soon as the submission phase begins. Further guidelines will be communicated to the authors of the documents adopted at the end of the final draft preparation conference to be included in the subsequent proceedings.
