MASS2013 is the international workshop on advances in theory, systems, simulations, and real-world applications for multiagent-based societal systems. The field of Multiagentbased Societal Systems is a new interdisciplinary field that aims to apply techniques from multiagent systems and related disciplines (for example, smart grid, green computing, life innovation, smart elderly care systems, etc.) to the balancing of environmental, economic, and societal needs, in order to support sustainable development and a sustainable future. Research in Multiagent-based Societal Systems is inherently interdisciplinary: it brings together multiagent computational fields and a variety of fields with a long tradition in the study of smart city problems, such as environmental sciences, biology, economics, and sociology. Multiagent systems, in particular, can play a key role in addressing challenges in smart computing.
MASS2013 will discuss, among others, the following aspects and topics of the field of Multiagent-based Societal Systems, which have distinct relationships with AAMAS main conference topics:

  • Power-aware Systems and Applications
  • Distributed Coordination of Resources
  • Systems, Applications and Services for Accessibility and Personal Autonomy
  • Use of Sensors for Environmental Monitoring
  • Urban Computing for Sustainability
  • Green Computing
  • Sustainable computing
  • Next-generation transportation systems
  • Next-generation logistics
  • Smart Grids
  • Energy supply
  • Demand control
  • City design
  • Smart Home
  • Smart City
  • Smart Planet
  • Consensus and Negotiation by Civilians
  • Collective Intelligence for Green Computing


Papers will be peer-reviewed by at least two referees from a group of reviewers selected by the workshop organizers with the help of the program committee.
Authors can submit papers (maximum length 8 pages) in PDF format through the Easychair system at:

Camera-ready papers should follow the ACM proceedings guidelines, which is same formats of the main conference papers. Please download the appropriate instructions and templates from the following site:


We have chance to publish "joint agent special issue" from JACIII(Journal of Advanced Computational Intelligence and Intelligent Informatics).


The conference will be held at the Crowne Plaza, St. Paul, Minnesota, USA
