2nd CFP: Workshop on Logical Aspects of Multi-Agent Systems LAMAS 2015 @ 
AAMAS 2015
*** new deadline for submissions: February 20, 2015 ***
Istanbul, May 4 or 5, 2015

The LAMAS workshop provides a meeting forum for the research community 
working on various logical aspects of multi-agent systems (MAS) from the 
perspectives of artificial intelligence, computer science, and game 
theory. It addresses the whole range of issues that arise in the context 
of using logic in MAS, from theoretical foundations to algorithmic 
methods and implemented tools. The workshop is planned to serve two 
mutually supporting purposes. Primarily, it will be a mini-conference, 
hosting talks and discussions, and facilitating exchange of information, 
research ideas, and publication of original research papers on issues 
listed below. Secondly, the workshop will provide a meeting forum for 
the research community working on various logical aspects of MAS. The 
participants will discuss how the community can support coordination of 
research and dissemination of results.

The main technical issues that the workshop will address are:
- Logical systems for specification, analysis, and reasoning about MAS
- logic-based modeling of MAS
- Deductive systems and decision procedures for logics for MAS
- Development, complexity analysis, and implementation of algorithmic 
methods for formal verification of MAS
- Logic-based tools for MAS
- Applications of logics in MAS

Three types of submissions are allowed:
- Regular papers up to 15 pages, describing original unpublished 
research. Position papers and visionary work in progress can also be 
submitted in this category. Simultaneous submission to another venue is 
not allowed.
- System descriptions of up to 12 pages, describing new systems or 
significant upgrades of existing ones.
- Extended abstracts of 2-5 pages reporting interesting and relevant 
work that has been published (or accepted for publication) in the last 
12 months.

Submissions should be anonymous. Each submission will be reviewed by at 
least 2 program committee members.

Papers must be in PDF format and prepared according to the Springer LNCS 
format (http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html). Please submit 
via the Easychair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=lamas2015).

February 20, 2015: paper submission deadline
March 10, 2015: author notification
March 19, 2015: Camera-ready version
May 4 or 5, 2015: workshop

Workshop notes including all accepted papers will be distributed to 
AAMAS 2015 registrants in electronic form. Printed workshop notes will 
NOT be made available to workshop participants. Depending on the quality 
of the submissions, we also plan to edit workshop post-proceedings as a 
journal special issue of the Journal of Applied Non-Classical Logics 
(JANCL). The submissions to that special issue will be subject to a 
proper reviewing and selection process.
