Innovative and Industrial Applications
(Chairs: Paul Scerri and Pradeep Varakantham)

Sixteenth International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent
Systems (AAMAS 2017)

Sao Paulo, Brazil

May 8-12, 2017

Research from, and relevant to, the AAMAS community has permeated a
variety of domains and applications, both as central to the
application and in key supportive roles. For example, the community
pursues research in topics including resource allocation, constrained
optimization, learning, scheduling, agent-based simulation, and
game-theoretic equilibrium computation, and applies them in domains
ranging from security to biomedicine to robotics to financial and
internet market design. Ideas and technologies from this research are
responsible for significant revenue-generation and cost-saving, as
well as for supporting important public policy and business strategy

We are interested in hearing about how research makes it into practice
and what the current problems of interest are. This special track
provides the ideal forum to present, discuss, and demonstrate
compelling applications, agent system deployment experiences, and new
business ideas. The goal is to promote the fostering of
mutually-beneficial relationships between those doing foundational
scientific research and those using autonomous agents and multiagent
systems in real-world commercial, non-profit, and government

We invite papers across two sub-tracks:

“Industrial Applications” sub-track: This is primarily for industry
practitioners and researchers to present application work that is more
mature, commercially deployed and uses agents/multiagent systems
technology in practice. Submitted material will be evaluated based on
the use of agent/multiagent systems technology for real problems over
a reasonable duration (minimum of 3 months), evidence of impact, and
lessons for the agents/multi-agents community of what worked and what
did not.

“Innovative Applications" sub-track: This is open to all researchers
to showcase promising new applications of agent/multiagent systems
technology that are at an early stage, with no requirement of
deployment. Papers will be evaluated on innovativeness of the proposed
application, use of agent/multiagent methods and evidence of possible
improvement, either in simulation or by other qualitative means.

Accepted papers of both sub-tracks will automatically get an
opportunity to present a demonstration at the conference.

Papers accepted to the “Industrial Applications” sub-track will
receive a special award for taking agents to the real world.

Submission Instructions
for the Innovative and Industrial Applications Special Track

For the industrial applications sub-track, authors must submit a
single page document (in AAMAS format) briefly summarizing the
interesting agent technologies featured in the deployed system and
their impacts.  In addition, authors should also provide a URL (as a
footnote in the single page document) to a presentation of their work
in whatever electronic medium best shows the AAMAS relevant features
of the application, whether a video, PPT, deployment, webpage or
software.  Acceptance to the track will be determined based on both
the degree to which interesting agent technologies feature in and
improve the deployed system, as well as the benefit to the community
to understanding the challenges and solutions in the application.

For the innovative applications sub-track, authors need to follow the
same paper submission instructions as used for submitting to the main
track (maximum of 8 pages, excluding references, in AAMAS format).

Important Dates

The submission deadlines are the same as for the main track of the
AAMAS 2017 conference (November 11, 2016 for an abstract/intent to
submit submission and November 15, 2016 for a full submission).
