9th International Workshop on Programming Multi-Agent Systems



The ProMAS workshop series has produced, throughout this decade, a number of solid contributions towards programming languages and development tools that are appropriate for the development of complex autonomous systems that operate in dynamic environments. With applications of autonomous software (e.g., UAVs, companion robots, ambient intelligence, and semantic applications, to name just a few) becoming required with wide commercial interest, it is imperative to support the ever more complex task of professional programmers of multi-agent systems. Importantly, such languages and tools must be developed in a principled but practical way. ProMAS aims to address both theoretical and practical issues related to developing and deploying multi-agent systems.

Now in its 9th edition, ProMAS has been an invaluable venue bringing together leading researchers from both academia and industry to discuss issues on the design of programming languages and tools for multi-agent systems. In particular, the workshop promotes the discussion and exchange of ideas concerning the techniques, concepts, requirements, and principles that are important for multi-agent programming technology. These include the theory and applications of agent programming languages, how to effectively implement a multi-agent system design or specification, the verification and analysis of agent systems, as well as the implementation of social structures in agent-based systems (e.g., organisations, coordination, and communication in multi-agent systems).
