Call for Papers

There is a growing interdisciplinary community of researchers and research groups working on logical aspects of MAS from the perspectives of logic, artificial intelligence, computer science, game theory, etc. The LAMAS workshop serves the community as a platform for presentation, exchange, and publication of ideas.

The main technical issues that the workshop will address are:

  • Logical systems for specification, analysis, and reasoning about MAS
  • Modeling MAS with logic-based models
  • Logic in game theory
  • Logic in social choice theory
  • Deductive systems and decision procedures for logics for MAS
  • Development, complexity analysis, and implementation of algorithmic methods for formal verification of MAS
  • Logic-based tools for MAS
  • Applications of logics in MAS.

Submissions

We will allow three types of submissions to attract a broad audience and to have a mixed bag of contributions:

  • Regular papers up to 15 pages, describing original unpublished research. Position papers and visionary work in progress can also be submitted in this category. Simultaneous submission to another venue is not allowed.
  • System descriptions of up to 12 pages, describing new systems or significant upgrades of existing ones.
  • Extended abstracts of 2-5 pages reporting interesting and relevant work that has been published (or accepted for publication) in the last 12 months.

Submissions should be anonymous, subject to double-blind reviewing procedure. Each submission will be reviewed by at least 2 program committee members.

Papers must be in PDF format and prepared according to the Springer LNCS format. For templates and instructions for authors, see Springer LNCS author information.

Papers have to be submitted via Easychair: Link to submission website

Proceedings and Post-Proceedings

Workshop notes including all accepted papers will be distributed to AAMAS-2014 registrants in electronic form. Printed workshop notes will NOT be made available to workshop participants.

We also plan to edit workshop post-proceedings as a journal special issue of Studia Logica. The submissions to that special issue will be subject to a proper reviewing and selection process.

Keynote Speakers

  • Prof. Dr. John-Jules Meyer, Utrecht University, the Netherlands (invited talk) and
  • Prof. Dr. Thomas Ågotnes, University of Bergen, Norway (invited tutorial)

Tutorial Session

According to the rules of AAMAS workshops, the workshop will include a one hour tutorial session covering topics of:

  • logic-based modeling of MAS
  • deduction and meta-logical properties and techniques (satisfiability, bounded model property, etc.), and
  • applications of logics in MAS (e.g. Verification).
