2nd International Symposium on Agents and Multi-agent Systems - Technologies and Applications
26 Mar. - 28 Mar. 2008
KES-AMSTA-08 is an international scientific symposium for research in the field of agent and multi-agent systems.
The aim of the symposium is to provide an internationally respected forum for scientific research in the technologies
and applications of agent and multi-agent systems.
Previous KES-AMSTA was held in Wroclaw, Poland (2007, LNAI 4496).
KES-AMSTA-08 is organized by KES International and Inha University, Korea, and will take place in Incheon.
Papers are invited from prospective authors with interests on the below indicated symposium topics and related areas
of application. All contributions should be original and not published elsewhere or intended to be published during the
review period. Contributions from more applied related fields in industry and commerce are very welcome. All accepted
papers must be presented by one of the authors who must register for the conference. To ensure high quality, all papers
will be thoroughly reviewed by the KES-AMSTA-08 International Programme Committee. The symposium proceedings
will be published by Springer-Verlag in LNCS/LNAI series. Submitted papers should be prepared in LNCS/LNAI style
and should not exceed 10 pages. Extended versions of selected papers will be considered for publication in special
issues to be included in several journals indexed by ISI, KES Journal and Int. Journal of Intelligent Information and
Database Systems. Ph.D. students are invited to submit paper s to Doctoral Track. Special sessions are also welcome.
Submission of papers: 4 Nov. 2007
Notification of acceptance: 9 Dec. 2007
Final papers to be received: 22 Dec. 2007
