About the EASSS 2023

Since 1999, the annual European Agent Systems Summer School (EASSS) has provided a highly successful forum for knowledge exchange between researchers in the field of autonomous agents and multi-agent systems.

As was the case with the earlier editions, EASSS 2023 will offer a rich program of both introductory and advanced courses on a broad range of topics in the area of Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems. The courses will be taught by leading researchers in the field, and are aimed at advanced Masters students, PhD students, and other young researchers.

EASSS 2023 is organized under the auspices of EURAMAS, the European Association for Multi-Agent Systems. We invite proposals from members of the research community who are willing to offer tutorials at EASSS '23.

We are interested in tutorial proposals in all areas of current research in Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems. As a very rough guideline, any topic that might be covered at the AAMAS conference or in the JAAMAS journal would be suitable for EASSS.

We aim for a mix of tutorials on fundamental and well-established topics, as well as overviews of new and emerging areas of research.

Tutorials should cover an appropriate selection of approaches and not specifically focus on the tutors’ own contributions. Besides providing a coherent overview of a specific research topic, we specifically encourage tutorial proposals to articulate a clear link to applications and pragmatic consideration of the fundamental topics presented.

We encourage both well-established senior researchers and younger colleagues to submit proposals. Each tutorial is usually given by one or two tutors. Exceptions are of course possible; for proposals by more than two tutors, please justify this choice in the proposal and explain how you intend to ensure the coherence of the tutorial.

To support the tutors, we can commit to the provision of up to 500 EUR per tutorial to cover the travel and accommodation costs.

Submission Instructions

A tutorial proposal should take the form of a single PDF document covering the points listed below. The maximum length of the proposal is 2 pages, and the use of our LaTeX template is mandatory.

Please submit the proposal (including LaTeX source) by email to easss23@fit.cvut.cz mentioning [TUTORIAL] in the subject line.

The following points should be addressed in the tutorial proposal, preferably in the order stated below:

  1. Title of the proposed tutorial.
  2. Tutor(s): name, affiliation, full contact details, and a link to the personal homepage of each tutor.
  3. Abstract: a short paragraph describing the tutorial (100-300 words), suitable for publication at the EASSS '23 website.
  4. Topics covered: detailed list of topics covered in the tutorial in terms of a list, preferably in the order in which the tutorial will cover them.
  5. Type: a clear indication of whether the tutorial takes a theoretical or applications-oriented perspective on the topics covered. We encourage tutorial proposals that balance the two perspectives.
  6. Level: please indicate the target audience and level of the course. If there are prerequisites, describe what knowledge will be assumed by the tutorial.
  7. Teaching materials: Please indicate what kind of teaching materials you intend to provide. Note that we will require materials by the date above, so that they can be distributed to EASSS attendees in advance.
  8. Duration: Tutorials are typically 3 hours long. If you have good reasons for wanting to deviate from this standard, please explain this in your proposal.
  9. Equipment: Please list any special equipment (beyond data projector and whiteboard) that you might need.
  10. Short biographical sketch for each tutor (around 100 words per tutor), suitable for publication at the EASSS '23 website.
  11. Experience of tutor(s): please provide details on relevant teaching experience of the tutor(s).
  12. Additional information on the proposed tutorial. Include as much detail as you see fit.
