Introduction

In December 2003, the First European Workshop on Multi-agent Systems was held at the University of Oxford, UK. This workshop emerged from a number of related workshops and other scholarly activities that were taking place at both national and European levels, and was intended to provide a single recognised forum at which researchers and those interested in activities relating to research in the area of autonomous agents and multi-agent systems could meet, present (potentially preliminary) research results, problems, and issues in an open and informal but academic environment.

Scope and rationale of EUMAS

EUMAS is a scientific event in a sub-discipline of computer science concerned with the issues surrounding computer systems composed of multiple, interacting, (semi-)autonomous computer systems known as "agents". As the precise focus of interests of the event will inevitably change over time as new issues, problems, and directions come to the fore, the scope of the event is defined as the scope of the International Journal on Autonomous Agents & Multi-agent Systems, the International Conference on Autonomous Agents & Multi-agent Systems (AAMAS), and the European Association for Multiagent Systems (EURAMAS).

The overarching goals of the EUMAS workshop are:

  1. to advance the state of the art in European research and development in the area of autonomous agents and multi-agent systems;
  2. to provide an environment for research training in this area.

Every EUMAS-related activity should be set in the context of these overarching goals, and should be understood as an attempt to achieve them. The aim of EUMAS is to provide a recognised European forum for presenting and discussing scientific and technological results, problems, and issues within that fall within its scope. It is not the aim of EUMAS to be another "archival" event, but an informal meeting that nevertheless provides an opportunity for results to be discussed in a scholarly environment.

Organisation

Since December 2009, the EUMAS workshops are organised and supported by the European Association for Multiagent Systems (EURAMAS).
