Special Issue on Distributed Artificial Intelligence and Multiagent Systems

 
This special issue is addressed to computer scientists and engineers from both academic and industrial environments, who design, develop and implement multiagent systems and agent based tools in diverse application areas.

We solicit submissions of original, unpublished, theoretical and applied work strongly relevant to multiagent systems, including both prototype and deployed systems which demonstrate novel capabilities.

Papers must be written in English, according to the RITA formatting guidelines. Only full papers will be accepted for submission. Papers will be refereed through a *double blind* process for technical merit and content.

A (non-extensive) list of topics is:

* Coordination, Cooperation, and Communication Issues in Distributed Artificial Intelligence (DAI) and Multiagent Systems (MAS)
* Machine Learning for and in DAI and MAS
* DAI and MAS as support for Machine Learning
* Agent-Based Modelling and Multiagent-Based Simulation
* Automated Planning for and in DAI and MAS
* Engineering Methods, Platforms, Languages and Tools for  MAS
* Applications of DAI and MAS in  Socio-Technical Systems, Health, Manufacturing, Robotics, and other domains


Papers should be submitted to the journal in the normal way but authors should select the Special Issue - ``Distributed Artificial Intelligence and Multiagent Systems''.

We are pleased to announce the special issue, to be published in 2021, on
Business Process Management (BPM) in the Revista de Informática Teórica e
Aplicada (RITA). BPM is a discipline that covers the phases of process
identification, process discovery, process analysis, process redesign,
process implementation and process monitoring and control. Related to these
phases many approaches and technologies have been proposed aiming advances
in process documentation, automation and improvement. Therefore, we propose
a special issue of RITA, focusing on trends and research related to these
advances.

Papers must be written in English, according to the RITA formatting
guidelines. Only full papers will be accepted for submission. Papers will be
refereed through a *double blind* process for technical merit and content.

Topics of Interest (not limited to):

** Business Process Management and Natural Language Processing
** Research on BPM-related standards and technologies, e.g. BPMN, DMN, CMMN
** Blockchain in Business Process Management
** Process Mining approaches, tools and techniques
** Digital Innovation and Transformation with BPM
** Dynamic Adaptation in Process-aware Information Systems
** Artificial intelligence in Business Process Management
** Business Process Visualization
** Case studies, literature reviews and empirical studies on BPM rese- arch
topics
** Other BPM related topics (IoT, Smart Cities, Social-human aspects,
Healthcare processes, Educational processes, Security issues)


Papers will be submitted to the journal in the normal way but authors should
select the Special Issue - ”Business Process Management”.
