Last EURAMAS events
The 19th European Conference on Multi-Agent Systems (EUMAS 2022, http://www.ccc.cs.uni-duesseldorf.de/eumas2022/#home) will be on September 14-16, 2022. We hope that we are allowed to welcome you at the Heinrich-Heine University in Düsseldorf (Germany), and plan the event on site. Note, however, that this may change due to local COVID regulations.
EUMAS 2022 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 (online) 2020, Israel (online) 2021), and aims to encourage and support activity in the research and development of multi- agent systems, in academic and industrial effort. 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 environment. EUMAS 2022 features formal proceedings published as part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series of Springer.
The 22nd European Agent Systems Summer School (EASSS 2021, https://paginas.fe.up.pt/~easss2021/) was organized by the Artificial Intelligence and Computer Science Lab of the University of Porto (LIACC), and held at the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto, Portugal, on July 19-23, 2021. EASSS 2021 will be free of charge. It was organized under the auspices of the European Association for Multi-Agent Systems (EURAMAS) and the Portuguese Association for Artificial Intelligence (APPIA), as an Advanced School on Artificial Intelligence.
The main goal of EASSS is to provide an exchange of knowledge among individuals and groups interested in various aspects of autonomous, agent-based and multi-agent systems research and practice. This dissemination is provided by formal state-of-the-art courses conducted by leading experts in the field and by informal meetings during the event. The school attracts both beginner and experienced researchers, encouraging cooperation between representatives of many branches of the Multi-Agent Systems research community.
Objects and Activities
The European Association for Multi-Agent Systems (EURAMAS) is a non-profit organisation aimed at promoting European science and technology in the area of multiagent systems. In pursuit of its objects the Association shall engage in activities including:
Becoming a representative forum for European experts within the field of multiagent systems;
Coordinating with scientific and other institutions, organizations and other societies, including industrial companies, governments and international bodies with similar or related purposes;
Granting scholarships and making awards to promote or acknowledge research in artificial intelligence or multiagent systems;
Managing a set of “Designated Events” and ensuring their proper organisation.
Since December 2009, the Designated Events of EURAMAS are the following:
The European Conference on Multiagent Systems EUMAS (former European Workshop on Multiagent Systems).
The European Summer School on Multiagent Systems (EASSS)
Guidelines For The Organizers Of The Euramas Designated Events
The organizers of the designated event should
1. Mention EURAMAS as a sponsor/co-organizer on the web site of the event and all dissemination/advertisement material.
2. Look for additional sponsors. IFAAMAS, EURAI, AIJ, KER, Springer, ECCAI and local institutions are often prepared to sponsor events in this area.
3. Keep fees as low as possible while budgeting to leave a small profit, if possible. 30% of any profit should be transferred to EURAMAS.
4. Provide additional support for students, if possible.
5. Send the budget for approval to the EURAMAS Treasurer at least a month before the event, and a copy of the closing accounts within 12 months of the end event.
In the event of a loss, EURAMAS will cover up to 30% of that loss in a way to be agreed between EURAMAS and the organizers. For example, the local institution, or whichever organisation is managing conference/summerschool finances, may invoice EURAMAS for this amount and supply the conference/summerschool accounts.
Alternatively, EURAMAS may refund invited speakers or students or pay for other eligible expenses of the designated event, for an amount of up to 30% of the loss.
EURAMAS is prepared to offer additional financial support to conferences, for instance to support speaker expenses, or student travel awards. These should be discussed with the EURAMAS board well in advance and included in the conference budget.
These guidelines were approved by the Board in office on October 28th, 2022
EURAMAS promotes scientific and technological events in the field of multiagent systems that take place in Europe. Organisers of events who seek promotion by EURAMAS should contact the EURAMAS officers. Events previously promoted by EURAMAS include:
