Submission instructions:


In the past two decades, we have seen an enormous increase of interest
in agent-based computing and multi-agent systems (MAS). This field is
set to become one of the key intelligent systems technologies in the
21st century. The EUMAS conference series aims to provide the main forum

for academics and practitioners in Europe to discuss current MAS
research and applications.

EUMAS-2022, the 19th installment of the conference series, follows the
tradition of previous editions (Oxford 2003, Barcelona 2004, Brussels
2005, Lisbon 2006, Hammamet 2007, Bath 2008, Agia Napa 2009, Paris 2010,

Maastricht 2011, Dublin 2012, Toulouse 2013, Prague 2014, Athens 2015,
Valencia 2016, Evry 2017, Bergen 2018, Thessaloniki 2019, Virtual 2020),

and encourages and supports activity in the research and development of
multi-agent systems, in academic and industrial efforts.

The conference aspires to be the primary European forum for researchers
interested in the theory and practice of autonomous agents and
multi-agent systems. EUMAS enables researchers to meet, present
challenges, preliminary and mature research results in an open and
informal environment. To attract students as well as experienced
researchers, preliminary as well as mature work, EUMAS 2021 offers three

submission types and formal proceedings. Also, we will be working hard
to arrange for the post-publication of selected papers in the form of a
special issue of a high-quality journal in the area.

EUMAS-2022 is a designated event of the European Association of
Multi-Agent Systems (EURAMAS):

EUMAS-2022 welcomes original, unpublished papers. Papers submitted shall

describe original work that has not been published or accepted for
publication, nor is currently under review by another conference or
journal (it might be on arXiv or a similar preprint server, though).

NEW! Papers rejected from AAMAS, AAAI, or IJCAI will be fast-tracked
given that their original reviews and an authors' cover letter
(indicating all changes made) will be submitted. Extended abstracts from

AAMAS also qualify for this fast track.

Each submission will be peer-reviewed in a double-blind fashion. All
submissions should be formatted according to Springer's LNCS format and
contain at least 12 and at most 16 pages, plus any number of additional
pages for bibliography and, if needed, a clearly marked appendix. For
templates and instructions for authors, see Authors must submit their

abstracts and papers through the EUMAS-2022 Easychair submission site

EUMAS-2022 accepted papers will be published by Springer in an LNCS/LNAI

volume. As such, they will be made available to several indexing
services (including Scopus, Google Scholar, DBLP, CPCI, EI Engineering
Index, and more).
Authors should consult Springer's author guidelines and use their
proceedings templates, either for LaTeX (preferred) or for Word (if need

be), for the preparation of their papers.

Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. We
urge the authors to follow these guidelines from the submission stage
Additional guidelines will be communicated after the conference to the
authors of accepted papers for the preparation of the final versions to
be included in the post-proceedings.

Opportunity for a JAAMAS publication
This year, the Journal of Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems
(JAAMAS) will provide the opportunity for revised and extended versions
of the EUMAS-2022 best paper award winner (see below) and the EUMAS-2022

best paper award runner-up to be fast-tracked for the journal.

Opportunity to publish revised and extended papers in SN CS
A selection of EUMAS-2022 papers will be invited to submit revised and
extended versions for publication in a special issue of the Springer
Nature Computer Science journal.

Best Paper Award
A Best Paper Award will be presented at the conference.

Keynote Speakers
Prof. Marija Slavkovik (University of Bergen)
Prof. Carles Sierra (Artificial Intelligence Research Institute of the
Spanish National Research Council, Barcelona)

There will be a doctoral consortium day prior to the conference where
PhD students can present the topics related to MAS they are currently
working on.

Keynote Speaker for the PhD Day (September 14, 2022):
Piotr Faliszewski (AGH University of Science and Technology Kraków)

Organizers of the PhD Day:
Linus Boes (HHU Düsseldorf)
Christian Laußmann (HHU Düsseldorf)

Dorothea Baumeister (HHU Düsseldorf)
Jörg Rothe (HHU Düsseldorf)
