Dear colleague,

We email you to draw your attention to the **extended deadline** of 4th International Conference on Agreement Technologies (AT 2016). The new deadline is now **September 16**.

We hope you will consider submitting your research work to AT 2016, and we ask you to please help us by distributing the attached CfP widely, to promote this conference within your scientific networks.

Attached is the CfP.

With best regards,
Nardine & Vicente


4th International Conference on Agreement Technologies,
December 15-16, Valencia, Spain
( <> <http://eumas-at20! <>>)

This year The Agreement Technologies Conference (AT 2016) is collocated 
with EUMAS 2016. Sessions of both conferences will be open to all 
participants of EUMAS and AT. 

We hope that this will allow us to develop a rich and inspiring program of 
high-quality papers reporting original results.

**Proceedings will be published in a Springer LNCS/LNAI volume.**

**Selected papers from AT 2016 will be invited to submit an extended and improved version to a special track published in AI-COMMUNICATIONS**

Aims and Scope

Agreement Technologies refer to computer systems in which autonomous 
software agents negotiate with one another, typically on behalf of humans, in 
order to come to mutually ! acceptable agreements. An agent may choose 
whether to fulfil an agreement or not, and it should fulfil it when there is an 
obligation to do so derived from the standing agreements. Autonomy, 
interaction, mobility and openness are key concepts studied within the 
Agreement Technologies approach.

Semantic alignment, negotiation, argumentation, virtual organisations, trust 
and reputation and several other technologies are part of the sandbox to 
define, specify and verify such systems. The International Conference Series 
on Agreement Technologies is an interdisciplinary forum that brings together 
researchers and practitioners working on the various topics comprising this 
emergent and vibrant field. It provides an avenue to discuss and exchange 
new ideas and techniques for the design, implementation and verification of 
next generation open distributed systems centred o! n the notion of agreement 
among computational agents.

AT 2015 follows the successful outcome of the previous editions of the 
International Conference on Agreement Technologies: AT 2012 in Dubrovnik, 
Croatia, AT 2013 in  Beijing, and AT 2016 in Athens.

AT 2016 welcomes original, unpublished papers. We especially invite 
submissions by students who could benefit from receiving valuable feedback 
from the discussion-oriented focus of the conference.

Authors are invited to submit papers in the following two categories:

Full Papers: Papers in this category should represent original and previously 
unpublished work that is currently not under review in any conference or 
journal. Both basic and applied research papers are welcome. Papers should 
not exceed 15 pages including references and figures.

Position Papers: We also welcome position papers which are intended for the 
discussion of ideas and concepts related to research.. Examples could include 
thoughtful critiques of the field, technical discussions of various 
implementation techniques, methodological contributions, and visionary 
ideas that propose long-term challenges and new research opportunities that 
are outside the current mainstream of the field. Position papers can be 4-6 
pages in length.

Each submission will undergo a double-blind peer-review process. All 
submissions must be written in English and formatted according to the 
Springer LNCS style, which can be obtained 
from <> < <>>.

Submissions must be done via Easychair through this link: <> <https://eas! <>> 


We plan to publish AT-2016 proceedings, in a Springer LNCS/LNAI volume. 
Full research papers and position papers describing original, unpublished 
work accepted at AT 2016 will be included in the proceedings.

We will give authors of accepted papers the opportunity to revise the camera 
ready version of their paper(s) in order to incorporate feedback received upon 
the presentation of their work during the conference.

A special track in the AI-COMMUNICATIONS Journal ( <>< <>>) with best papers from the AT 2016 conference will be published. AI Communic!
 ations is an ISI ranked Journal  on Artificial Intelligence (AI) which has a close relationship to EurAi (European Association for Artificial Intelligence). 

Important Dates

	Deadline for papers submission:  September 16, 2016 (extended)
	Final decisions to authors: October 7, 2016
	Camera Ready Papers: October 14, 2016
	Conference:  15- 16 December, 2016

All deadlines are at 23:59 UTC-12, i.e. before midnight on the respective date 
anywhere in the world.
