                AAMAS-2005 INDUSTRY TRACK

                Utrecht, the Netherlands
                        July 25-29 2005

Submission open now -- Deadline: 28 February 2005


The International Joint Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent
Systems (AAMAS) is the leading international conference in the theory
and practice of software agents. The conference attracts delegates from
many different backgrounds; from those developing agent-based software
products and services to those working in the theoretical foundations of
the discipline.
The AAMAS-05 conference will be held in July 2005 in Utrecht, the
Netherlands, and will, for the first time, feature a track specifically
intended for industrial participants: the AAMAS Industry Track. The
industry track is being organised in cooperation with AgentLink,
Europe's IST-funded coordination activity for autonomous agents and
multi-agent systems (see


The AAMAS industry track is a special track at the AAMAS conference that
will run in parallel to the regular AAMAS scientific track. It will
feature presentations and demonstrations from industrial participants,
giving them an opportunity to showcase the state of the art in
technology and industrial application of autonomous agents and
multi-agent systems to AAMAS delegates and to publish associated papers
in a high quality, formal proceedings. The industry track aims to foster
mutually beneficial links between those engaged in foundational
scientific research and those working to make autonomous agents and
multi-agent systems a commercial reality. This enables
industrially-based software agent developers and practitioners to
participate in AAMAS in a meaningful way and to present their technology
and applications to both their peers and the associated scientific


Whereas in the regular conference track the overriding refereeing
criterion is clearly scientific excellence, the industry track focuses
primarily on the industrial relevance and technological significance of
the contribution. Preference will be given to mature work demonstrating
concrete industrial/commercial results and business value.

Examples of an "ideal" paper might include: (i) a presentation of a
particular kind of commercially available software agent technology,
together with experience of how this was applied in a field-tested
system; or (ii) a report on a field-tested agent-based system.

We explicitly discourage the submission of purely speculative papers,
proposals, and plans for future work/potential applications. Academic
participation in the industry track is acceptable, but please note that
we strongly discourage the submission of: (i) papers that merely appeal
to potential applications, without demonstrating that they have been
meaningfully applied; (ii) academic papers that work with highly
abstracted versions of potential applications; or (iii) academic papers
that describe software agent systems/platforms without either a real
industrial link or genuine application.

In general, if you believe that your paper makes a scientific
contribution, you should think about submitting to the regular
scientific track; whereas, if your paper is an overview of an agent
technology, a "practical experience" paper, or similar, then you should
probably submit to the industry track.


The industry track invites developers, practitioners, and industrial
researchers to submit high quality papers on agent technology and its
applications. See the conference web site for paper formatting and
submission instructions.

Accepted contributions will be formally published in the "Proceedings of
the Industry Track of AAMAS-05" and will be distributed at the
conference along with the AAMAS-05 main conference proceedings. Selected
publications will be encouraged to present their applications in the
AgentLink newsletter. The contributions will influence the AgentLink
Roadmap to be published in 2005.

Note that the Industry Track is part of the AAMAS conference - there is
no separate registration for the Industry Track.
