Invited Session on

Agent and Multi-Agent Based Technologies in Current and Future Combat and Mission Systems (AMAT-CMS)


Organized within the framework of the 11th International Conference on Agents & Multi-Agent Systems: Technologies & Applications (KES AMSTA 2017)

Tivoli Marina Hotel, Vilamoura, Algarve, Portugal

21 – 23 June, 2017






The superiority and survivability of a military platform is dependent on how effectively its combat and mission system is able to gather, process and assess tactical information to identify threats, and determine behaviours and intentions. Over the past decade, the battlespace environment has seen the emergence of a more complex and contested environment with smarter and non-conventional threats. As a result, current and future combat and mission systems need to be more innovative and adaptive in how they evaluate, process and assess tactical information and threats, and enhance their situation awareness. The teaming of homogeneous and heterogeneous combat and mission systems is fast becoming an area of great importance, due to its potential for improving threat evaluation and assessment, and situation awareness. The aim of this special session is to bring together researchers who are interested in enhancing and improving tactical information processing and assessment, threat assessment and evaluation, and situation awareness. Submitted papers should focus on using agent and multi-agent systems techniques and technologies for individual and teams of current and future manned and unmanned tactical mission and combat systems.


Topics of Interest:


– Agent and multi-agent techniques and technologies for tactical information processing and assessment

– Agent-based architectures for automated combat and mission systems

– Self-organising autonomous and adaptive combat and mission systems

– Cognitive architectures and models for threat behaviour modelling

– Agent-based techniques for distributed and teaming of manned, unmanned and hybrid systems

– Coordination and cooperation between multiple homogeneous and heterogeneous systems

– Human/agent teaming

– Agent/multi-agent architectures for unmanned autonomous combat and mission systems

– Other related topics

This session aims to address topics from a practical and/or theoretical perspective.
