 AAMAS 2013 Demonstrations Track

May 6-10 2013
Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA

 Submission Information


Each Demo submission must consist of the following:

  1. Paper: A 2-page paper in which the authors describe the system to be demonstrated. The paper should describe the application domain, the problem scenario, the technology used, the agent/multi-agent techniques involved, the innovations of the system, its live and interactive aspects, etc. Papers MUST BE PREPARED IN PDF format using the AAMAS style (follow the formatting instractions with mandatory section in this page). Reviews will be double blind, so authors must avoid including anything that can be used to identify them. You need to add the words "(Demonstration)" as a subtitle in the camera ready.

  2. Video or PPT: The paper must contain a URL linking to a demonstration video no more than 5 minutes in length (QuickTime or YouTube format) or a Powerpoint presentation showing and explaining what happens. If some other format can more clearly show the demo, accommodation may be made. Please contact the organizers in advance. You can also write the url at the end of the abstract column in the EasyChair submission page, instead of the paper. (You can eliminate the url in the camera ready unless your video or PPT will stay online after the conference.)

  3. Contribution and Supervisor Endorsement (Student Projects Only): A brief note from the student'fs supervisor describing the student's individual contribution to the project, written on university letterhead and including the supervisor's full name, title and email address. This should be attached as the 3rd page of the PDF Paper submission (above).

Accepted Demo submitters will be expected to present a poster and live demonstration by at least one author at the conference in Saint Paul. Accepted Demos will have the 2-page papers included in the AAMAS proceedings. Submissions accepted for the demonstration session will be advertised on the AAMAS website and in the conference booklet, which will contain abstracts of all available Demos.




The submission and selection processes for the AAMAS 2012 Demos will be separate from that of the main conference. Each submission will be assessed by the Demos Committee. The authors will receive a brief report with the result of the evaluation with the notification. The main evaluation criteria are:

  • Presentation and technical quality
  • Significance and originality
  • Relevance to AAMAS
  • Maturity of the (deployed) system and readiness for demonstration
  • Potential for public interaction

Notification of acceptance or rejection of submitted demos will be sent to the corresponding author (see dates below). At least one author of each accepted demonstration is required to register and to attend the conference to give the demonstration.
