Second International Workshop on Agent-based Modeling and Applications with SARL (SARL-18) 


The 9th International Conference on Ambient Systems, Networks and Technologies (ANT-2018) 
May 08-11, 2018 Porto, Portugal

Research on Agents and Multi-Agent Systems has matured during the last decade and many effective applications of this technology are now deployed. SARL-18 provides an international forum to present and discuss the latest scientific developments and their effective applications, to assess the impact of the approach, and to facilitate technology transfer. 

SARL-18 borns with the SARL agent programming language, but the scientific results presented in SARL-18 are not restricted to SARL; other languages and agent platforms may be concerned by the proposed papers. 

SARL aims at providing the fundamental abstractions for dealing with concurrency, distribution, interaction, decentralization, reactivity, autonomy and dynamic reconfiguration. These high-level features are now considered as the major requirements for an easy and practical implementation of modern complex software applications. We are convinced that the agent-oriented paradigm holds the keys to effectively meet this challenge. Considering the variety of existing approaches and meta-models in the field of agent-oriented engineering and more generally multi-agent systems, our approach remains as generic as possible and highly extensible to easily integrate new concepts and features. 

The goal of SARL-18 is to provides a place where the different points of view on the modeling and the simulation with agent platforms and agent programming languages may be discussed. 

Tutorial sessions for introducing and explaining the modeling and implementation of multiagent systems with SARL will be organized during the workshop. 

The authors may contribute to the SARL-18 workshop by providing a paper or a tutorial. For submitting a tutorial, the authors must send a summary of the tutorial on 4 to 6 pages. 

SARL-18 will be held in Porto, Portugal (08-11 May 2018) in conjunction with the 9th International Conference on Ambient Systems, Networks, and Technologies (ANT 2018).

- Methods and Models: 
- Agent based Modeling and Simulation 
- Agent programming language 
- Agent based Simulation 
- Agent oriented analysis and design methods 
- Ontologies and theories about large urban systems 
- Formal models of agent-based simulation 
- Organizational models 
- Applications: 
- Traffic/Transport 
- Crowds 
- Smard grids and smart buildings 
- Land-Use 
- Energy
