                          FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS
                     AND MULTIAGENT SYSTEMS (AAMAS-08)

                          May 12-16, 2008
                         Estoril, Portugal

AAMAS is the leading scientific conference for research in autonomous
agents and multi-agent systems. The AAMAS conference series was
initiated in 2002 as a merger of three highly respected individual
conferences: the International Conference in Autonomous Agents, the
International Workshop on Agent Theories, Architectures, and
Languages, and the International Conference on Multi-Agent Systems.
The aim of the joint conference is to provide a single, high-profile,
internationally respected archival forum for research in all aspects of
the theory and practice of autonomous agents and multi-agent systems.
AAMAS has an "in co-operation" status with ACM and proceedings appear
in the ACM Digital Library.

The conference will be held from Monday May 12th until Friday May
16th, 2008 in Estoril, Portugal.

Tutorials and workshops will be held on Monday May 12th and Tuesday
May 13th, 2008. Accepted technical papers and invited talks will be
presented from Wednesday May 14th through Friday May 16th, 2008.
Invited speakers include Randy Beard (Brigham Young University) and
Moshe Tennenholtz (The Technion).


All deadlines are midnight, Eastern Standard Time (New York time).

Tuesday, October 23, 2007:       Electronic abstract due
Friday, October 26, 2007:        Full electronic paper submissions due
November 27 - 28, 2007:          Author feedback opportunity
Wednesday, December 19, 2007:    Accept/reject notifications


Papers on theory and applications concerning teams of multiple robots
are welcome, namely those focusing on real robots interacting with their
surrounding environments. The goal is to foster interaction between
researchers on multi-agent and multi-robot systems, so as to provide a
cradle for cross-fertilization of concepts from both fields.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
   - cooperative perception
   - cooperative localization
   - middleware for multi-robot systems
   - multi-robot mapping and localization
   - networked robots
   - formal models of multi-robot plans

There is an extensive senior program committee and regular program
committee for this special track and Pedro Lima (robotics -at-
