Submissions will be (single-blindly) reviewed by at least three members of the program committee, who are experts in the field. The acceptance of the submitted papers will depend on their quality, relevance, and originality.
To conduct this process, the chairs will rely on easychair to make the reviewing procedure traceable, transparent and accessible. In the case of accepted papers characterized by relevant demands (e.g., clarifications, changes, corrections) set by the reviewers, the final acceptance will be subject to their accomplishment.
All accepted papers can be published in the Springer post-proceedings Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI). Participants are therefore invited to submit papers up to 16 pages (excl. references) in length (5 pages incl. references for demo papers), addressing the topics of the workshop. Papers must be edited using the LNCS format (applying the LNCS post-proceedings template) and have to be submitted electronically as PDF files via the EasyChair submission page.
Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.
The authors of the accepted papers are invited to submit extended versions of their papers to the special issue on Multi-Agent Systems and Explainable AI in the Journal of Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems (JAAMAS - Springer).
