We welcome the submission of technical papers describing significant and original research on all aspects of the theory and practice of autonomous agents and multiagent systems. If you are new to this community, then we encourage you to consult the proceedings of previous editions of the conference to fully appreciate the scope of AAMAS. At the time of submission, you will be asked to associate your paper with one of the following 10 areas of interest:
Coordination, Organisations, Institutions, and Norms
Markets, Auctions, and Non-Cooperative Game Theory
Social Choice and Cooperative Game Theory
Knowledge Representation, Reasoning, and Planning
Learning and Adaptation
Modelling and Simulation of Societies
Humans and AI / Human-Agent Interaction
Engineering Multiagent Systems
The reviewing process for each of these areas will be coordinated by dedicated area chairs familiar with the particularities of the area they are responsible for. We reserve the right to transfer a paper to a different area in case we believe that doing so will improve the quality of the reviewing process.
In addition to the main track, AAMAS-2021 will feature three special tracks, the Blue Sky Ideas Track, the JAAMAS Track, and the Demo Track, each with a separate Call for Papers.
The focus of the Blue Sky Ideas Track is on visionary ideas, long-term challenges, new research opportunities, and controversial debate. The JAAMAS Track offers authors of papers recently published in the Journal of Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems (JAAMAS) that have not previously appeared as full papers in an archival conference the opportunity to present their work at AAMAS-2021. The Demo Track, finally, allows participants from both academia and industry to showcase their latest developments in agent-based and robotic systems.
