Call for Papers: CLIMA IX
9th International Workshop on Computational Logic in Multi-Agent Systems (CLIMA-IX)
[Co-located with 11th European Conference on LOGICS IN ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (JELIA-08)]
Technische Universität Dresden, Germany        29th-30th September, 2008


Multi-Agent Systems are communities of problem-solving entities that can perceive and act upon their environment in order to achieve both their individual goals and their joint goals. The work on such systems integrates many technologies and concepts from artificial intelligence and other areas of computing as well as other disciplines. Over recent years, the agent paradigm gained popularity, due to its applicability to a full spectrum of domains, such as search engines, recommendation systems, educational support, e-procurement, simulation and routing, electronic commerce and trade, etc. Computational logic provides a well-defined, general, and rigorous framework for studying the syntax, semantics and procedures for the various tasks in individual agents, as well as the interaction between, and integration amongst, agents in multi-agent systems. It also provides tools, techniques and standards for implementations and environments, for linking specifications to implementations, and for the verification of properties of individual agents, multi-agent systems and their implementations.


The aim of CLIMA is to bring together active researchers from all the above areas to discuss and present their work. Relevant topics include, but are not limited to, the following (all with a focus on agents, multi-agent systems, or agent organisations):


We invite submissions of high quality, original papers, which are not simultaneously submitted for publication elsewhere. Papers should be written in English, formatted according to the Springer LNCS style, and not exceed 16 pages including figures, references, etc. Each paper should include some examples illustrating the proposed techniques.

Submissions must be made via

Submissions will be reviewed and selected and a printed volume of the proceedings will be available at the workshop. As in previous years, we aim to publish a selection of extended workshop papers in a Post-Proceedings volume within the Springer Verlag LNAI series; see
