Demos

The goal of the AAMAS DEMOs track is to provide opportunities for participants from academia and/or industry to present their latest developments in agent-based software and/or robotic systems. Interactive systems, robotic systems and novel applications are particularly welcome. There will be a "Best Demo Award.” 

Authors of accepted papers and posters in the main track of the AAMAS conference, as well as workshop presenters, are particularly encouraged to submit! (You'll be there anyway - this is another opportunity to share your work and discuss your results in detail with conference attendees who visit your Demo!)

Examples of demos include but are not limited to:

  • Single- and multi-agent robotic systems
  • Interactive agent-based software systems
  • Personal robotics
  • Agent-based simulation environments
  • Innovative applications of agent-based systems or prototypes
  • Agent-based games
  • Agent platforms and development environments
  • Open-source software tools for agent-based system development
  • Human-robot interactive systems
  • Virtual agents and interactive virtual environments

The organizers will make every effort to facilitate demo requirements. If you have unusual requirements please contact the organizers in advance.

At a minimum, we will provide a poster board (A0), a monitor, and a table for each demonstration.

SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Submissions accepted for the demonstration session will be advertised on the AAMAS website. Each Demo submission must consist of the following:

  1. Paper: A 2-page paper in which the authors describe the system to be demonstrated. The paper should describe the application domain, the problem scenario, the technology used, the agent/multi-agent techniques involved, the original contribution and innovations of the system, its live and interactive aspects, etc. Papers MUST BE PREPARED IN PDF format using the AAMAS style. Submissions are NOT required to be anonymous. The page limit is 2 pages, except for the bibliographic references, which can be on a 3rd page ( i.e., if the paper is no longer than 2 pages, an extra page should only contain bibliographic references.)
     
  2. A list of requirements/description of demo setting. This list should be attached to the extended abstract, in a separate page.
     
  3. Video or PPT or other media: The paper must contain a URL linking to a demonstration video no more than 5 minutes in length (e.g. YouTube) or a Powerpoint presentation showing and explaining what happens. We strongly advice to use the video option, but other formats are also possible if they can more clearly illustrate the demo. The objective is to give a precise idea, in 5 minutes, of what the demo will look like.

Accepted Demos will have the 3-page papers included in the AAMAS proceedings.

Submissions should be made via the link: https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/AAMASDEMO2016/).

SELECTION PROCESS

The submission and selection processes for the AAMAS 2016 Demos will be separate from that of the main conference. Each submission will be assessed by the Demos Program Committee. The authors will receive a brief report with the result of the evaluation with the notification. The main evaluation criteria are:

  • Relevance to the AAMAS conference
  • Significance and originality
  • Presentation and technical quality
  • Maturity and readiness for demonstration
  • Potential for public interaction
  • Potential impact in the intended application domain 
  • Potential interest to a broader audience

At least one author of each accepted demonstration is required to register and to attend the conference to give the demonstration.
