Instructions to authors

EUMAS 2020 welcomes both original, unpublished papers, and papers that have been recently published in a relevant conference or journal.

We offer three types of submissions:

  1. Full original papers of 12 to 15 pages, describing work that has not been previously published, accepted for publication, nor is currently under review by another conference or journal.
  2. Short original papers of 6 to 8 pages reporting on views, ambitions or work in progress that has not been previously published, accepted for publication, or is not currently under review by another conference or journal.
  3. Published papers up to 15 pages reporting on interesting and relevant work that has been published (or accepted for publication) in the last 18 months.

Each submission will be peer-reviewed. Submissions are not double-blind (i.e., there is no need to anonymise the paper). All submissions should be formatted according to Springer’s LNCS format. For templates and instructions for authors, see http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html. We request the submission of title and abstract prior to paper submission to support the tight schedule of reviewing. Authors must submit their abstracts and papers through the EUMAS 2020 Easychair submission site https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=eumas2020.

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.

A Best Paper Award will be presented at the conference. The Award will be accompanied by a monetary prize for the recipients, and is sponsored by the journal “Computers” https://www.mdpi.com/journal/computers.

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. Moreover, extended versions of selected accepted papers will appear at a special (topical) issue of the SN Computer Science journal.
