Call For Papers
Holonic and Multi-Agent Systems provide a novel paradigm for managing, modelling and supporting complex systems. This concept has proved to be successful in a number of industrial domains such as manufacturing, real-time control, supply chain management, logistics, production planning and scheduling, air traffic control, smart grids, and others.

The conference aims to bring together researchers active in the area of Holonic and Multi-Agent Systems as well as Service-Oriented Architectures together with key engineers and industrial decision makers to share their views and experience in design, development and application of Holonic and Multi-Agent Systems for industrial problems.

Technical co-sponsorship of the IEEE System, Man, and Cybernetics Society (SMC) is expected.

SUGGESTED TOPICS (but not limited to):

    Theoretical backgrounds behind holonic/agent concepts, game-theoretic approaches as well as real-time automation and control
    Industrial applications of holonic, multi-agent, and service-oriented architectures (SOA) (case-studies are specially appreciated) including applications in smart grids, smart cities, and logistics
    Design principles, methodologies and applications of cyber-physical systems
    Specification of holonic, agent-based, and service-oriented architectures
    and design methodologies including approaches for their fusion
    Semantic Web technologies, Knowledge Ontologies and Big Data
    in agent-based and SOA-based industrial systems
    Communication principles and standards
    Virtual organiations & holonic factories – reconfigurable factories
    Agent-based system integration
    Modeling and simulation tools
    Reconfiguration tasks, coalition formation
    Novel application areas (health-care, environmental protection, government, humanitarian missions, smart grids, and smart cities)
    Visions and future trends of holonic, multi-agent systems, and SOA-based systems
    Standardization issues, security issues, industrial and logistic needs
    Obstacles and barriers to industrial deployment


Authors are invited to submit research contributions or critiques of practical experience. Papers (in English) should not exceed 10 pages in Springer Verlag format. Authors are requested to submit their papers electronically to the conference web site. All accepted conference papers will be published in the conference proceedings in “Lecture Notes
in Computer Science” (LNCS) series by Springer Verlag.
