Call for workshop proposals

The PRIMA2019 Program Committee invites proposals for the Workshop Program, to be held in Turin, Italy, on 28th to 29th October 2019.

PRIMA2019 workshops provide the ideal setting for participants to discuss technical topics in an atmosphere that promotes active exchange of ideas. Researchers can delve deeply into research topics, focus on application issues, discuss the most advanced research in agent-based and multi-agent systems.

Every year our workshops attract an increasing number of top-tier researchers in the field, proving to be the ideal prelude for the main conference.

We encourage proposers to aim for a program that is both varied and interesting. Interdisciplinary workshops that bring together researchers and practitioners from different communities are especially welcome.

Workshop formats that are innovative and go beyond the usual presentation of listing accepted papers will be highly regarded, such as: Panel discussions, demo sessions, invited talks. Post-proceedings of PRIMA workshops are traditionally published as a Springer LNAI volume.
