2nd Call for Papers - Agents and Robots for reliable Engineered Autonomy (AREA2023@ECAI2023)

[Apologies for cross and multiple postings]

CALL FOR PAPERS Third Workshop on Agents and Robots for reliable Engineered Autonomy (AREA)

Co-located with ECAI 2023 Workshop: 30th September - 1st October 2023 (exact day TBA)

Conference: 2nd - 5th October 2023 Kraków, Poland

Workshop website: Contact:


Paper Submission Deadline: 18th July 2023 (AoE, UTC-12) Paper Notification: 8th August 2023 (AoE, UTC-12) Camera Ready: 3rd September 2023 (AoE, UTC-12)


This workshop aims to bring together researchers from the autonomous
agents and the robotics communities, since combining knowledge from
these two research areas may lead to innovative approaches that solve
complex problems related to the verification and validation of
autonomous robotic systems. Therefore, we encourage submissions that
combine agents, robots, software engineering, and verification, but we
also welcome papers focused on one of these areas, as long as their
applicability to the other areas is explicit.


The main topics include but are not limited to:

  • Agent-based modular architectures applicable to robots
  • Agent oriented software engineering to model high-level control in
    robotic development
  • Agent programming languages and tools for developing robotic or
    intelligent autonomous systems
  • Coordination, interaction, and negotiation protocols for agents and robots
  • Distributed problem solving and automated planning in autonomous systems
  • Engineering reliable interactions between humans and autonomous
    robots or agents
  • Fault tolerance, health-management, and long-term autonomy
  • Neuro-symbolic artificial intelligence
  • Real world applications of autonomous agents and multi-agent systems
    in robotics
  • Runtime verification of autonomous agents and robotic systems
  • Task and resource allocation in multi-robot systems
  • Verification and validation of autonomous systems


Types of submissions:

  • full-length research paper
  • short paper

Full-length research papers must not exceed twelve (12) pages single
column excluding references and appendices and short papers must not
exceed six (6) pages single column excluding references and
appendices. All submissions must be in English and PDF format. Each
submission will receive at least three single-blind reviews. All
papers should be original and not be submitted elsewhere. The review
process is single-blind: submissions should not be blind, reviewers
will be.

The AREA 2023 workshop is going to be an in-person event (following
ECAI 2023 guidelines). At least one author of each accepted paper has
to register to the workshop (via ECAI 2023 website, links and fees
will be made available soon).

The proceedings of the workshop will be published with EPTCS
( Formatting guidelines should follow EPTCS

After the workshop, we will consider applying for a journal special
issue (journal to be selected later), where revised selected and
extended papers can be published.


The event is planned as a one day workshop, with a duration of
approximately eight hours (four in the morning and four in the
