**** Call for Papers *****

AAMAS 2013
Saint Paul, Minnesota, US
6-10 May, 2013

AAMAS is the largest and most influential conference in the area of agents 
and multiagent systems, the aim of the conference is to bring together researchers
and practitioners in all areas of agent technology and to provide a single, high-profile, 
nternationally renowned forum for research in the theory and practice of autonomous 
agents and multiagent systems.  AAMAS is the flagship conference of the non-profit
International Foundation for Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems (IFAAMAS). 

AAMAS 2013 seeks high-quality submissions of full papers, limited to 8 pages in 
length. Submissions will be rigorously peer reviewed and evaluated on the
basis of originality, soundness, significance, presentation, understanding of the
state of the art, and overall quality of their technical contribution. In addition to 
submissions in the main track, AAMAS 2013 is soliciting papers in three special 
tracks including one on Virtual Agents. The review process for the special tracks will be
similar to the main track, but with program committee members specially selected for 
that track. All accepted papers for the special tracks will be included in the proceedings.

------ Special Track "Virtual Agents" -----------

The Virtual Agents track gathers papers on research topics related to the design, 
implementation, evaluation and application of virtual agents. Such agents are simulated
in 3D computer graphics and emulate autonomous human-like behavior in social interaction
or simulated task-based environments. Applications of this technology range from social 
assistants on mobile devices, to pedagogical agents in tutoring systems, to non-player 
characters in interactive games or multimodal interface agents for smart appliances and 
environments. The goal of the virtual agents track is to provide an opportunity for continued 
interaction and cross-fertilization between the AAMAS community and researchers working 
on virtual agents and to strengthen links between the two communities.

We welcome papers that present novel work and contributions on virtual agent systems, 
human(s)-agent(s) interaction, and evaluations or applications of such systems. Submissions 
can address innovative and challenging issues in fundamental issues such as behavioral or 
cognitive models for autonomous virtual agents, as well as new usage and applications. 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
	 Models for reasoning and deliberation in virtual agents
	 Architectures for autonomous interactive agents
	 Cognitive models
	 Learning and adaptation in virtual agents
	 Perception and generation of social, communicative behavior
	 Verbal and nonverbal communicative expression
	 Embodied conversational agents
	 Socio-culturally aware agents
	 Affect and emotions in virtual agents
	 Models of personality and agency
	 Multimodal human-agent interaction
	 Personalization and user modeling for virtual agents
	 Interpersonal coordination
	 Empirical studies on/with virtual agents
	 Computational models of interactive narrative
	 Pedagogical, coaching agents
	 Companion, assistive agents
	 Virtual character modeling and animation
	 Applications in games, education, training, or virtual environments
