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

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).

The main topics of the SARL-18 workshop are (but not restricted to):
- 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
