Call for Demonstraion

Fifth International Joint Conference on AUTONOMOUS AGENTS AND MULTIAGENT SYSTEMS (AAMAS 2006)
Future University, Hakodate, Japan, May 8-12, 2006

The Fifth International Joint Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems (AAMAS-2006) invites demonstrations of agent technologies and agent-related software and hardware. We welcome a wide variety of demonstrations, such as autonomous robots, agent software, software applications with embedded agent technologies, environments for agent-based developments. The goal for the demonstrations is to illustrate the technical advances in the state of the art of autonomous agents. The selection of demos will be based upon a number of factors, including scientific contribution, originality, innovation and potential logistic constraints. Commercial products are eligible, but sales and marketing activities are not appropriate. Space will be available for creating environmental settings as needed by the teams. An Demonstration Award will be open to all applicants submitting a demonstration to AAMAS. The aim of the award is to identify: how agent technology can be applied effectively in a practical application, success/failure in using agents within a particular (or group of) application(s), impact of the technology on society/industry/local community etc.

Requirements for Submissions

Submissions will consist of a cover letter indicating the primary author's name, affiliation, address, phone number, and email address, and the following:

  1. A brief description of the demonstration. For example, "We will demonstrate cooperative localization and mapping, using two mobile robots. The demonstration GUI will show range data being collected and an online, real-time map building process."
  2. A two-page summary of the technical content of the demo, to be distributed at the conference. The best summaries in each category will be included in the proceedings.
  3. A detailed description of hardware and software requirements, such as space, site set ups, power supplies. AAMAS-2006 will attempt to provide necessary equipment, but demonstrators will be required to provide their own special-purpose equipment.
  4. A URL for a currently-active WWW-based demo, video clip, or a demo storyboard. A demo storyboard would consist of 6 images or power-point slides depicting the various stages of the demo, e.g., 6 screen-shots from a software demo, or 6 images from a robot simulation.

All proposals should be submitted by electronic mail to the Demo Chairs Ana Bazzan and Regis Vincent ( in PDF no later than

** January 15, 2006 **

Submitters will be notified of the committee's decision no later than

** February 15, 2006 **
