4th International Conference on Agents and Artificial Intelligence

ICAART (4th International Conference on Agents and Artificial Intelligence - has an open call for papers, whose deadline is set for July 28, 2011. We hope you can participate in this conference by submitting a paper reflecting your current research in any of the following areas:

- Artificial Intelligence

- Agents

The conference will be sponsored by the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication (INSTICC) and held in cooperation with the Portuguese Association for Artificial Intelligence (APPIA), the Spanish Association for Artificial Intelligence (AEPIA) and the Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI). INSTICC is member of the Foundation for Intelligent Physical Agents (FIPA), Workflow Management Coalition (WfMC) and the Object Management Group (OMG).

ICAART would like to become a major point of contact between researchers, engineers and practitioners interested in the theory and applications in these areas. BBCQ Informatics applications are pervasive in many areas of Artificial Intelligence and Distributed AI, including Agents and Multi-Agent Systems. This conference intends to emphasize this connection, therefore, authors are invited to highlight the benefits of Information Technology (IT) in these areas. Ideas on how to solve problems using agents and artificial intelligence, both in R&D and industrial applications, are welcome. Papers describing advanced prototypes, systems, tools and techniques and general survey papers indicating future directions are also encouraged.

The conference program features a number of Keynote Lectures to be delivered by distinguished world-class researchers, including those listed below.

All accepted papers (full, short and posters) will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM support.

A short list of presented papers will be selected so that revised and extended versions of these papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in a CCIS Series book.

A short list of papers will be selected for publication in a special issue of JOPHA - Journal of Physical Agents.

The proceedings will be submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP and Elsevier Index (EI).

Best paper awards will be distributed during the conference closing session. Please check the website for further information (

All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SciTePress Digital Library ( SciTePress is member of CrossRef (

We also would like to highlight the possibility to submit to the following Satellite Workshop:

- 2nd International Workshop on Semantic Interoperability (IWSI)

Workshops, Special sessions as well as tutorials dedicated to other technical/scientific topics are also envisaged: companies interested in presenting their products/methodologies or researchers interested in holding a tutorial are invited to contact the conference secretariat. Workshop chairs and Special Session chairs will benefit from logistics support and other types of support, including secretariat and financial support, to facilitate the development of a valid idea.

Please check further details at the ICAART conference website (

Should you have any question please don't hesitate contacting me.

ICAART 2012 will be held in conjunction with ICPRAM ( and ICORES 2012 ( in Vilamoura, Algarve, Portugal. Registration to ICAART will enable free access to the ICPRAM and ICORES conferences (as a non-speaker).
