Instructions to authors

Authors are invited to submit papers in the following two categories:

Full Papers (12-15 pages): Papers in this category should represent original and previously unpublished work that is currently not under review in any conference or journal. Both basic and applied research papers are welcome.

Short Papers (6-8 pages): These papers are intended for the discussion of ideas and concepts related to research and application of agreement technologies. Examples could include thoughtful critiques of the field, technical discussions of various implementation techniques, methodological contributions, and visionary ideas that propose long-term challenges and new research and application opportunities that are outside the current mainstream of the field.

Each submission will undergo a double-blind peer-review process with three peer reviews. All submissions must be written in English and formatted according to the Springer LNCS style. We request the submission of a title and an abstract prior to paper submission to support the tight schedule of reviewing. Submitted papers should not contain any author information.

Submission: abstracts and papers are to be submitted through the EasyChair submission site. ​

EUMAS 2020 and AT 2020 accepted papers will be published by Springer in a joint post-proceedings LNAI volume.  As such, they will be made available to several indexing services (including Scopus, CPCI, EI Engineering Index, and more).  Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. We urge the authors to follow these guidelines from submission stage already. Additional guidelines will be communicated after the conference to the authors of accepted papers for the preparation of the final versions to be included in the post-proceedings.

This year, the Journal of Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems (JAAMAS) will provide the opportunity to extended versions of the EUMAS2020 best paper award winner, the EUMAS2020 best paper award runner-up, and one selected AT2020 paper to be fast-tracked for the journal.
