EUMAS 2013 is organized by IRIT (the institute for research in computer Science in Toulouse), Université Paul Sabatier.
The first European Workshop on Multi-agent Systems was held at the University of Oxford, UK in December 2003. This workshop emerged from a number of related workshops and other scholarly activities that were taking place at both national and European levels, and was intended to provide a single recognized forum at which researchers and those interested in activities relating to research in the area of autonomous agents and multi-agent systems could meet, present (potentially preliminary) research results, problems, and issues in an open and informal but academic environment. As the field matures, academics and industrialists benefit from European-based forums where state-of-the-art and state-of-the-practice are presented and discussed. The EUMAS series of events have served this purpose and in this 11th edition (following Dublin, Ireland, 2012; Maastricht, The Netherlands, 2011; Paris, France, 2010; Aiya Napa, Cyprus, 2009; Bath, England, 2008; Hammamet, Tunisia, 2007; Lisbon, Portugal, 2006; Brussels, Belgium, 2005; Barcelona, Spain, 2004; Oxford, England, 2003) we shall carry on in this tradition.
