About EMAS

The workshop on Engineering Multi-Agent Systems was formed as a merger of three existing workshops:

EMAS was founded in 2012 at the Dagstuhl seminar “Engineering Multi-Agent Systems”, which most of the Steering Committee members of the three former workshops were attending.

Steering Committee

EMAS was originally overseen by a merged steering committee from the three parent workshops, which then expanded:
