2007-07-20: The Conference Program has been published.
AIMS & SCOPE
The German conference on Multi-Agent System Technologies (MATES) provides an interdisciplinary forum for researchers, users and developers to present and discuss latest advances in research work as well as prototyped or fielded systems of intelligent agents and multi-agent systems. The conference aims to promote theory and application and covers the whole range of agent- and multi-agent technologies.For the fifth time the German special interest group on Distributed Artificial Intelligence in cooperation with the steering committee of MATES organizes this international conference in order to promote theory and application of agents and multi-agent systems. Building on the four successful predecessors in 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006, MATES 2007 takes place from 24th to 26th of September 2007 in Leipzig under the umbrella of the SABRE event.
We solicit papers that report on recent advances in the domain of intelligent agents and multi-agent systems in general but specifically encourage elaborated vision and challenge papers that discuss mid-term and long-term directions for these domains in the context of the above mentioned topics.
DOCTORAL MENTORING PROGRAM
MATES 2007 will include a doctoral mentoring program, intended for PhD
students. This program will provide an opportunity for students to
interact closely with researchers established in their fields, to
receive feedback on their work and to get advice on managing their
careers. The program will consist of the following components:
- to match each student with an established researcher who will act as a
- to allow students an opportunity to present their work to a friendly
audience of other students, as well as mentors.
- to provide students with contacts and networking opportunities.
The doctoral mentoring program consists mainly of a one day doctoral
symposium scheduled for September 24, 2007.
MATES issues a "MATES 2007 Best Paper Award".
