EMAS 2022 - Call for Papers

Multiagent systems (MAS)—systems composed of autonomous agents who interact with each other— are ideally suited to realizing modern software applications. For instance, MAS ideas are well-suited to the IoT, and applications that support engagements between humans and organizations in domains such as business, health, and finance. Moreover, with the advent of microservices, we see a clear shift in the software industry from monolithic applications to applications constituted from autonomous, interactive services—in essence, agents.

The EMAS workshop is a forum for presenting and discussing original ideas and work on software abstractions, methodologies, languages, and tools for engineering loosely-coupled, adaptive, high-performance, and scalable MAS.

We welcome submissions on:

As AAMAS 2022 will be a virtual event, EMAS 2022 will adopt a virtual format similar to that used for EMAS 2021.


All papers should be original and not be submitted elsewhere. The review process is single-blind (authors should put their names and affiliations in the submission). All papers should be in the LNCS formatting style.

The Easychair submission page can be found here: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=emas2022

Paper Types

  1. Regular papers may be up to 16 pages.
  2. Short papers may be up to 8 pages.
  3. Tool, testbed, and demo papers may be up to 4 pages. Submissions should highlight the capabilities of an implemented tool or MAS application and provide a link to supplementary material that allows the reviewers to evaluate the submission, such as a website or videos.

The LNCS formatting style is available via: http://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines

Student Paper Award

We encourage students to submit to EMAS. Papers where the main author is a student should be identified as such and will be eligible for a best student paper award.


The workshop will be foremost a discussion event: there will be ample time to discuss new ideas rather than only presenting mature work. Papers with enough potential to warrant publication in a journal will be identified through the reviewing process, and authors will be invited to submit their work for a special issue of the Annals of Mathematics and Artificial intelligence (hopefully to appear before EMAS 2023).
