The Second International Workshop on the Internet of Agents (IoA)

Submissions Instructions

IoA 2017 seeks high-quality submissions of full and short papers following LNCS general instructions. All submissions will be rigorously peer reviewed and evaluated on the basis of originality, soundness, significance, presentation, understanding of the state of the art, and overall quality of their technical contribution. Reviews will be double blind; authors must avoid including anything that can be used to identify them.

You need to specify the title, abstract, keywords, author(s) etc to register your paper. You do not need to upload the full PDF when you register the paper, but you need to upload the full PDF before the final deadline (Feb 22nd). Please note that submitting a minimum of 200 words as an abstract is required before you can submit your paper. The abstracts will not be reviewed and papers must be submitted for the review process to start.

The submission gateways close at 11:59 PM on Feb 22nd.

To register and submit your paper (in .PDF or .Docx), please go to our submission website (provided by EasyChair) and follow the instructions.

It is fine to submit work that has been previously appeared. If any substantial part of your work appeared previously in an an associated archival publication, please provide the citation and a description of the advances/differences in the footer. The same process should apply for papers that build on earlier work that appeared in an archival publication.

To ensure the effectiveness of the double-blind review process, make sure to put paper numbers (provided upon paper registration) instead of author names. In addition, please ensure that any references to your own previous work is made in a way that does not disclose author identity (for example, instead of "in previous work, we have shown X [ref]" use "X was shown in [ref]"). In some cases where the work is clearly a continuation of your earlier work, you may consider removing citations to your own work until the final version (for example, "we have shown X [ref]" where [ref]= "Anonymous, 200X"). Please also check that the PDF file submitted does not contain embedded identifying information.

AAMAS2017 is happy to announce that Springer is planning to publish two books based on a selection of the workshop papers. The aim of these books is to encourage innovative and visionary papers, even if their research work is still at a preliminary stage, as well as encourage the submission of good quality papers in general to all AAMAS2017 workshops. To achieve these aims, the first book will be a compilation of the most visionary papers of the AAMAS2017 Workshops, where one paper will be selected from each AAMAS2017 workshop. This book will be published under Springer’s Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) Hot Topics series. The second book will be a compilation of the best papers of the AAMAS2017 Workshops, where again one paper (different from the selected visionary paper) will be selected from each AAMAS2017 workshop. This second book will be published under Springer’s Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS) series.
