Description level: Applications
Area Chairs: Jeffrey Kephart and Danny Weyns

Papers on MAS applications are encouraged from either academia or industry. As opposed to the Industrial Track, papers submitted to this special area will be part of the main proceedings, and don't need to describe fielded, commercial applications. Applications papers will be evaluated according to the degree to which they provide

        i)   a clear and compelling motivation for why a multi-agent approach is important;

        ii)  a careful description of the design and implementation of the system; and

        iii) a thorough evaluation of the system with respect to a clearly-stated set of functional and quality requirements.

When registering your paper to this special area, please select:

Description Level: Applications

The other axes must be chosen according to the paper submitted. As an example, a paper on the application of a game theoretic model to airport security may be classified as Economics on the Inspiration Source Axis and Agent:Reasoning/Deliberation/Decision Mechanisms on the Focus Axis (Keyword).
