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

- Workshop: May 8-10, 2018

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 

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).

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
