multi-agent systems are communities of problem-solving entities that can perceive and act upon their environments to achieve their individual goals as well as joint goals. the work on such systems integrates many technologies and concepts in artificial intelligence and other areas of computing. for this reason, over recent years, the agent paradigm gained popularity in many sub-fields of computer science. a full spectrum of multi-agent systems applications have been and are being developed; from search engines to educational aids to electronic commerce and trade, e-procurement, recommendation systems, simulation and routing, to cite only some.

although commonly implemented by means of imperative languages, mainly for reasons of efficiency, the agent concept has recently increased its influence in the research and development of computational logic based systems.

computational logic provides a well-defined, general, and rigorous framework for studying syntax, semantics and procedures, for attending implementations, environments, tools, and standards, and for linking together specification and verification of properties of computational systems.

the purpose of this workshop is to discuss techniques, based on computational logic, for representing, programming and reasoning about multi-agent systems in a formal way.

we solicit unpublished papers that address formal approaches to multi-agent systems. the approaches as well as being formal must make a significant contribution to the practice of multi-agent systems. relevant techniques include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • logical foundations of multi-agent systems
  • knowledge and belief representation and updates in multi-agent systems
  • agent and multi-agent hypothetical reasoning and learning
  • extensions of logic programming for multi-agent systems
  • nonmonotonic reasoning in multi-agent systems
  • theory and practice of argumentation for agent reasoning and interaction
  • operational semantics and execution agent models
  • model checking algorithms, tools, and applications for multi-agent logics
  • semantics of interaction and agent communication languages
  • distributed constraint satisfaction in multi-agent systems
  • temporal reasoning for multi-agent systems
  • modal logic approaches to multi-agent systems
  • logic based programming languages for multi-agent systems
  • distributed theorem proving for multi-agent systems
  • logic based implementations of multi-agent systems
  • decision theory for multi-agent systems
  • specification and verification of formal properties of agent systems
