The official journal of the International Foundation for Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems (IFAAMAS).

This journal has a policy of working towards timely reviews of submitted manuscripts. Our average time to decision on a manuscript is under 3 months from the date of submission.

Thanks to our partnership with IFAAMAS, original research articles accepted at JAAMAS in the 12 month period preceding each year's AAMAS conference notification date are eligible for presentation at AAMAS.  These articles have the option to publish an extended abstract (maximum two pages) in the AAMAS proceedings. The article must be original and not previously published as a full paper in an archival conference. For full details, please see the current AAMAS conference site.

    • Cooperation and teamwork, including organizational structuring and design for multi-agent systems, self-organization, emergent functionality and swarm intelligence.
    • Multi-agent planning and planning for multi-agent systems, and the coordination of multi-agent plans and activities.
    • Computational auction systems, computational market systems, algorithmic/automated mechanism design, automated negotiation, computational aspects of game theory (cooperative and non-cooperative), and computational social choice theory.
    • Knowledge representation and reasoning for, and logical foundations of, autonomous agents and multi-agent systems.
    • Agent programming languages - their implementation, semantics, and evaluation.
    • Distributed constraint processing and distributed constraint optimization.
    • Multi-agent argumentation and dialogue, conflict detection and resolution.
    • Multi-agent learning, co-learning, and evolutionary approaches in multi-agent systems.
    • Learning agents, including: computational architectures for learning agents; evolution, adaptation; multi-agent learning.
    • Agent communication languages, their semantics, pragmatics, and implementation, and agent communication protocols and conversations.
    • Conventions, commitments, norms, obligations, and social laws in multi-agent systems, and models of trust and reputation.
    • Believable and synthetic agents and characters, and human-agent interaction.
    • Environments, testbeds, and programming languages for experimentation with, and analysis of, agent systems.
    • Ontologies for agent systems, agents and the semantic web, agents and semantic web services, Grid-based systems, and service-oriented computing.
