International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems (AAMAS-18)

AAMAS is the leading scientific conference for research in autonomous agents and multiagent systems. The AAMAS conference series was initiated in 2002 by merging three highly respected meetings: the International Conference on Multi-Agent Systems (ICMAS); the International Workshop on Agent Theories, Architectures, and Languages (ATAL); and the International Conference on Autonomous Agents (AA). The aim of the joint conference is to provide a single, high-profile, internationally respected archival forum for scientific research in the theory and practice of autonomous agents and multiagent systems. This edition will be a part of the Federated AI Meeting (FAIM) where AAMAS is co-located with several AI conferences including the International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI)/European Conference on Artificial Intelligence (ECAI) and the International Conference on Machine Learning (ICML).

AAMAS 2018, the 17th edition of the conference, will be held on July 10-15, in Stockholm, Sweden and is part of the Federated AI Meeting (FAIM), with the other conferences being IJCAI, ICML, ICCBR and SoCS. Please see the preliminary schedule for more information.
