Call: 11th International Workshop on Multi-Agent Systems and Simulation (MAS&S 2017)


11th International Workshop on Multi-Agent Systems and Simulation (MAS&S 2017)
Prague, Czech Republic, 3 – 6 September, 2017
WWW: and

Position paper submission: May 31, 2017

We would like to cordially invite you to consider contributing a position paper to MAS&S 2017 – held as a part of the Federated Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems (FedCSIS 2017).

Multi-Agent Systems (MASs) provide powerful models for representing both real-world systems and applications with an appropriate degree of complexity and dynamics. Several research and industrial experiences have already shown that the use of MASs offers advantages in a wide range of application domains (e.g. financial, economic, social, logistic, chemical, engineering, Internet of Things). When MASs represent software applications to be effectively delivered, they need to be validated and evaluated before their deployment and execution, thus methodologies that support validation and evaluation through simulation of the MAS under development are highly required. MASs are designed for representing systems at different levels of complexity through the use of autonomous, goal-driven and interacting entities organized into societies which exhibit emergent properties The agent-based model of a system can then be executed to simulate the behavior of the complete system so that knowledge of the behaviors of the entities (micro-level) produce an understanding of the overall outcome at the system-level (macro-level). In both cases (MASs as software applications and MASs as models for the analysis of complex systems), simulation plays a crucial role that needs to be further investigated.


MAS&S’17 aims at providing a forum for discussing recent advances in Engineering Complex Systems by exploiting Agent-Based Modeling and Simulation. In particular, the areas of interest are the following (although this list should not be considered as exclusive):

  • Agent-based simulation techniques and methodologies
  • Discrete-event simulation of Multi-Agent Systems
  • Simulation as validation tool for the development process of MAS
  • Agent-oriented methodologies incorporating simulation tools
  • MAS simulation driven by formal models
  • MAS simulation toolkits and frameworks
  • Testing vs. simulation of MAS
  • Industrial case studies based on MAS and simulation/testing
  • Agent-based Modeling and Simulation (ABMS)
  • Agent-based Ambient Systems
  • Agent Computational Economics (ACE)
  • Agent Computational Finance (ACF)
  • Agent-based simulation for energy systems
  • Agent-based simulation of networked systems
  • Scalability in agent-based simulation
  • Agent-based modeling of intelligent social phenomena


Papers should be submitted by May 31, 2017. The page limit for position papers is 8 pages. Preprints will be published on a USB memory stick provided to the FedCSIS participants. Only papers presented during the conference will be published electronically in a volume of “Annals of Computer Science and Information Systems” (ACSIS). Position and communication papers are published in a separate ACSIS volume(s) from regular papers, and they are not submitted to the IEEE Xplore DL.
