\ accepted demos \ academic \ industry and applications \ multi-robots

AAMAS-2008 will include a demonstration session. Demonstration submissions are invited for three different categories: INDUSTRIAL SOFTWARE, ACADEMIC SOFTWARE, and ROBOTICS. Winners will be chosen separately for each category, by public vote.

Demonstrators are expected to present a live interactive demo at assigned time slots during the conference. Developers of software or robotic system based on autonomous agents or multi-agent techniques, especially those showing novel technology, are welcome to submit a demo paper. Examples of demos include but are not limited to:

  • Multi-agent software systems
  • Industrial and military applications (including prototypes)
  • Agent-based games
  • Agent platforms and development environments
  • Open-source software tools
  • Robotic systems (single and multi-agent)
  • Virtual agents and interactive virtual environments
  • Simulation environments

The demonstration sessions will be held as part of the AAMAS main conference. The goal of the AAMAS demonstrations is to give participants, from industry and academia alike, an opportunity to present their latest developments on software and/or robotic system. Authors of accepted papers to the main conference or any of the special tracks with a demonstrable system are strongly encouraged to apply.

Submissions accepted for the demonstration session will be advertised on the AAMAS website and in the conference booklet, which will contain abstracts of all available demos. Each demo submission should describe the system to be demonstrated in a 1- or 2-page paper. Accepted demos will have these short papers included in the AAMAS proceedings.


Please submit all demonstration proposals at:

Any questions regarding submissions to AAMAS08 Demos should be sent to:

Submission Instructions

Please include the following information in a plain text file.

1. Demonstration title

2. Authors (name, affiliation, email, address, phone fax)

3. Abstract (max. 250 words)

4. Keywords

5. URL (if available)

6. Paper ID (if there is a related paper at the main conference)

7. Equipment you will bring (e.g., laptop, robot)

8. Equipment you will need (e.g., table, poster board, power sockets)

9. Special requirements (e.g., space for robot and if so how much, video projector)

10. Discuss the present state of your demo (e.g., ready to demonstrate now, but if not, include a realistic estimate for conclusion and what remains to be done before you have a demonstrable software/robotic system).

You also need to submit a PDF file with a 1- or 2-page paper using the AAMAS style (follow the instructions at
http://www.aamas2008.org/paper_submission.html). The paper should describe your demonstration including the application domain/problem/scenario, the technology used, the agent/multi-agent techniques involved, the innovations of the system, its live and interactive aspects, etc.

Submission Deadline: Friday 2008-01-25, 23:59UTC

Submissions received after this date will NOT be considered for review.

Selection Process

The submission and selection processes for the AAMAS08 Demos will be separate from that of the main conference. Each submission will be assessed by the Demo co-chairs and at least one external advisor. Normally, no feedback is given when notifications are sent.

The main evaluation critera are:

  • Relevance to AAMAS
  • Quality and soundness of the underlying technology
  • Novelty of the application domain
  • Maturity of the (deployed) system
  • Potential for public interaction

Notification of acceptance or rejection of submitted papers will be sent to the first author (or corresponding author) by February 13, 2008. Note that at least one author of each accepted demonstration is required to register and to attend the conference to give the demonstrations.


Important Dates

- Paper submission deadline: January 25, 2008.
- Notification of acceptance/rejection: February 13, 2008.
- Camera-ready paper: February 18, 2008.
