ABOUT MASTL 2018 WORKSHOP

WELCOME

The 8th Workshop on Multi-Agent Systems Technology and Learning (former Multi-Agent Systems Technology and Semantics) will bring together researchers and practitioners who are working on or are interested in exploring novel approaches to multi-agent systems development, learning in multi-agent systems and learning agents, and the use of multi-agent systems technology in building innovative applications.

The goal of the workshop is to present and discuss ideas and developments related to two converging areas of research and applications, namely multi-agent systems and agent learning. The workshop aims to focus on issues such as: agent autonomy and agent learning, the role of agents in building complex distributed applications, the collective and cognitive dimensions of the multi-agent systems paradigm, the use of agents in the development and deployment of new applications, the utilization of intelligent agents in the development of ambient intelligence applications. Debates are expected on directions and possibilities of future research in the domain.

MASTL 2018 will be held in conjunction with the 12th International Symposium on Intelligent Distributed Computing (IDC’2018) in Bilbao, Spain, 15-17 October, 2018.
