Camera Ready Paper Submission Guidelines
Each paper was sent to 3 members of the programme committee, each of whom was responsible for obtaining one review. In those cases where one of the reviewers failed to provide the reviews commissioned on time, the decision was based on the reviews available, if these agreed, or on final voting by the organising committee members. In conflicting cases the conference organisers asked for an additional review. Given the community-building nature of the conference, we have introduced a bias towards favouring presentation of borderline papers: this provides authors with the opportunity to improve presentation with the help of the feedback provided by the reviewers, and to get further constructive comments at the event itself.
The grades in the review results have the following meaning: 7 Strong accept, 6 Accept, 5 Weak accept, 4 Neutral, 3 Weak reject, 2 Reject, 1 Strong reject; Rewriting needed: H high, M medium, L low.

Paper Submission Guidelines
We solicit contributions as follows:
Paper submissions for the main research track of the conference should be formatted according to Springer LNAI guidelines and must not exceed 10 pages, including graphics and references. Authors are requested to submit their papers electronically as described below.
The conference poster session provides an opportunity to present the work in progress, enabling to discuss projects with others in the field. Students are encouraged to submit a poster presentation. The presenters will be invited to contribute an article as well. Papers should be formatted according to Springer LNAI guidelines and must not exceed 3 pages, including graphics and references. Authors are requested to submit their papers electronically as described below.
The 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 as described below.
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 proposal should include a brief summary and outline, specific goals and objectives, expected background of the audience, a biographical 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.
Authors of all submissions are requested to format their papers according to Springer LNAI guidelines and submit them following these steps:
Your camera ready manuscripts will have to be accompanied with a signed copyright form. Completed copyright forms are to be faxed or mailed to the CEEMAS05 Secretariat until the deadline for final papers.
Should you have any problems with submitting the paper, please contact the Secretariat.
CEEMAS05 will not accept any paper, which has already been published or accepted for publication in a journal or another conference. These restrictions apply only to journals and conferences, not to workshops and similar specialized presentations with a limited audience and without archival proceedings.
For each accepted paper, at least one author is required to attend the conference to present the paper. Each author can give only one presentation. Papers without at least one author registering by the early registration deadline will be automatically excluded from the conference programme and the proceedings.
