About the Conference
The aim of the CEEMAS conference series is to provide a biennial forum for the presentation of multi-agent research and development results. With its particular geographical orientation towards Central and Eastern Europe, CEEMAS has become an internationally recognised event with participants from all over the world. CEEMAS� expects papers from every fundamental research fields of multi agent systems. Papers which focus on the following three areas are especially welcome: scalability and reconfigurability of multi agent systems; deployment scenarios exploiting synergies of multi agent systems and other related technologies like grid, web services and semantic web; applications of multi agent systems in design and manufacturing, transport and logistics, space applications, tourism industry, e-commerce and many other application areas. The Organising Committee solicits research submissions for the main research track of the conference, as well as for the accompanying industrial and posters track. A tutorial program is also an integral part of CEEMAS�. For further details visit other sections of this web site.
The conference proceedings including the accepted papers of the main conference, selected papers from the posters and industrial track, will be published by Springer Verlag in the LNAI series. Revised and extended versions of selected papers will be published in a special issue of the Applied Artificial Intelligence Journal.

Authors are requested to submit their papers electronically on the conference submission web page.
The CEEMAS conference provides the opportunity to submit papers on genuine applications of agent technology. Papers describing concrete, practical implementations with industrial links are encouraged opposed to pure conceptual plans or potential applications. Our goal is to demonstrate the real life value and commercial reality of multi-agent systems as well as to foster the communication between academia and industry on this field. If your paper describes practical experience and real applications, you should submit it to the industrial track. System descriptions should be formatted according to Springer LNAI guidelines and must not exceed 2 pages, including graphics and references. Authors are requested to submit their papers electronically on the conference submission web page.
We solicit tutorials in all areas of agent-oriented models, technologies and methodologies, aimed at either students (basic tutorials) or researchers (new and hot topics). Tutorial duration is either half-day or full-day. The tutorial pro璸osal should include a brief summary and outline, specific goals and objectives, expected background of the audience, a bio璯raphical sketch of the presenter(s), as well as a sample (15 to 25 slides) of the presentation. All tutorial proposals should be directed to the Tutorials Chair Andrea Omicini <firstname.lastname@example.org>, and should be sent before 21 February, 2005.
The tutorials may be held on the morning of 15 September 2005, or if there is enough interest, on 14 September 2005.
