Call for Papers

Call for Papers

We invite you to submit your best work in the area of agents and multiagent systems to AAMAS 2023, the 22nd International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems, to be held in London from 29 May to 2 June 2023.

All submissions will be rigorously peer-reviewed and evaluated on the basis of the overall quality of their technical contribution, taking into account criteria such as originality, significance, soundness, reproducibility, clarity, relevance to the conference, quality of presentation, as well as understanding and appropriate referencing of the state of the art.

In-Person Conference

We are planning for the conference to be held in-person in London. After three years of virtual AAMAS conferences, many in the research community are eager for an in-person AAMAS conference once again. While virtual interactions are a reasonable substitute when used appropriately, they still lack key facets and benefits that in-person interactions offer. 

At the same time, we understand that not everyone will be able to travel to London, due to, for example, personal health constraints or traveling restrictions. As such, we will provide limited support to enable authors to present their work remotely for those who really cannot travel to the in-person event. We also plan to live stream the sessions using low-cost solutions. However, we will not provide support for other online infrastructure, such as a virtual platform or GatherTown.

Finally, it may be the case that the COVID-19 pandemic worsens significantly, making it infeasible to hold the conference physically in London. In this case, the conference will transition to either a virtual or hybrid setting.  

Important Dates

  • Abstract submission: 21 October 2022
  • Paper submission: 28 October 2022
  • Rebuttal period: 5-9 December 2022 
  • Author notification: 4 January 2023
  • Camera-ready paper submission: 1 March 2023 
  • Conference: 29 May – 2 June 2023 

All deadlines are at the end of the day specified, anywhere on Earth (UTC-12).

Areas of Interest

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
  • Robotics
  • Innovative Applications

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. You will have the opportunity to react to preliminary versions of the reviews of your paper (so-called “rebuttal”) before we make a final decision regarding the acceptance of your paper.

​​We highly encourage authors to make their source code (if any) publicly available after their papers are accepted. The link should be in their paper and will also be publicized on the AAMAS website.

Special Tracks

In addition to the main track, AAMAS 2023 will feature three special tracks, the Blue Sky Ideas Track, the JAAMAS Track, and the Demonstrations 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 2023. The Demonstrations Track, finally, allows participants from both academia and industry to showcase their latest developments in agent-based and robotic systems.

Language Editing Service

AAMAS’23 is running a pilot of providing subsidized language editing services to a limited number of papers.
Successful applications will get between $75 and $200 refund for language editing, depending on available funds and number of requests. 
To apply, you are requested, by Oct. 3, 2022: to submit your abstract; get an official quote from a language editing service; and fill the following form:
