       5th International Conference on Agents and Artificial Intelligence -




15 - 18, 2013

Barcelona, Spain



Important Deadlines: 


Regular Paper Submission: July 24, 2012

Authors Notification (regular papers): October 24, 2012

Final Regular Paper Submission and Registration: November 14, 2012 




The purpose of the 5th International Conference on Agents and Artificial
Intelligence (ICAART) is to bring together researchers, engineers and
practitioners  interested in the theory and applications in these areas. Two
simultaneous but strongly related tracks will be held, covering both
applications and current  research work within the area of Agents,
Multi-Agent Systems and Software Platforms, Distributed Problem Solving and
Distributed AI in general, including web  applications, on one hand, and
within the area of non-distributed AI, including the more traditional areas
such as Knowledge Representation, Planning,  Learning, Scheduling,
Perception and also not so traditional areas such as Reactive AI Systems,
Evolutionary Computing and other aspects of Computational  Intelligence and
many other areas related to intelligent systems, on the other hand.


A substantial amount of research work is ongoing in these knowledge areas,
in an attempt to discover appropriate theories and paradigms to use in
real-world applications. Much of this important work is therefore
theoretical in nature. However there is nothing as practical as a good
theory, as Boltzman said many years ago, and some theories have indeed made
their way into practice. Informatics applications are pervasive in many
areas of Artificial Intelligence and  Distributed AI, including Agents and
Multi-Agent Systems; This conference intends to emphasize this connection,
therefore, authors are invited to highlight the benefits of Information
Technology (IT) in these areas. Ideas on how to solve problems using agents
and artificial intelligence, both in R&D and industrial applications, are
welcome. Papers describing advanced prototypes, systems, tools and
techniques and general survey papers indicating future directions are also
encouraged. Papers describing original work are invited in any of the areas
listed below. Accepted papers, presented at the conference by one of the
authors, will be published in the Proceedings of ICAART with an ISBN. A book
with the best papers of the conferene will be published by Springer-Verlag.
Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and originality. Both full
research reports and work-in-progress reports are welcome. There will be
both oral and poster sessions.


Special sessions, dedicated to case-studies and commercial presentations, as
well as tutorials dedicated to technical/scientific topics are also
envisaged: companies interested in presenting their products/methodologies
or researchers interested in holding a tutorial are invited to contact the
conference secretariat. Additional information can be found at

All accepted papers (full, short and posters) will be published in the
conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM

All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the
SciTePress Digital Library (

SciTePress is member of CrossRef (

A short list of presented papers will be selected so that revised and
extended versions of these papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in a
CCIS Series 



The proceedings will be submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters
Conference Proceedings Citation Index, INSPEC, DBLP and EI.



Best paper awards will be distributed during the conference closing session.
