Submission instructions

  • Types of Submissions
  • COOS 2014 seeks high-quality submissions of full papers limited to 6 pages in length for position papers and 10 pages in length for full papers following AAMAS general instructions (there is no extra charge for additional pages, but please contact us if you wish to exceed the limit). All submissions will be rigorously peer reviewed and evaluated on the basis of originality, soundness, significance, presentation, understanding of the state of the art, and overall quality of their technical contribution. Reviews will be double blind; authors must avoid including anything that can be used to identify them. All work must be original (must not have appeared in a conference proceedings, book, or journal).

You need to specify the title, abstract, keywords, author(s) etc to register your paper. You do not need to upload the full PDF when you register the paper, but you need to upload the full PDF before the final deadline (Feb 15). Please note that submitting a minimum of 200 words as an abstract is required before you can submit any paper. The abstracts will not be reviewed and papers must be submitted for the review process to start.



  • Submission Instructions
  • To register and submit your paper (in .PDF, .Doc or .Docx format), please go to our submission website (provided by EasyChair) and follow the instructions.
  Online Submission  


To register your paper (Deadline is Feb 15) you need to provide title, abstract, keywords, author(s) etc. You do not need to upload the full paper for the purpose of your paper registration. But you need to upload the full paper before the final extended deadline (Feb 15).


>> The submission gateways close at 11:59 PM (GMT - 10:00) on [Jan 30]: Extended to Feb 15.


If any substantial part of your work appeared previously, please provide the citation and a one sentence description of the differences in the box provided. It is fine to submit work that has been previously appeared in a workshop (without an associated archival publication). For such papers simply fill in the paper and workshop info. For papers that build on earlier work that appeared in an archival publication, please provide the citation and a one sentence description of the key advances/differences. This information will be kept from the reviewers to ensure a double-blind review and will only be used by the program chairs.



  • Formatting Instructions
  • The page limit for COOS'13 full paper submissions is 10 pages. The format follows the ACM proceedings guidelines and consists of balanced double columns, 9 pt text, 1" (2.54cm) margins top and bottom, and 0.75" (1.9cm) margins left and right. Each column is 3.33" (8.45cm) wide with a separation of 0.33" (0.83cm). The LaTeX style files (aamas2014.cls and aamas2014_abstract.cls) to be used respectively for full papers and a Microsoft Word template are provided to help in formatting your paper. You can see an example of a latex file and formatting. Please do not modify the style files, or any layout parameters.


To ensure the effectiveness of the double-blind review process, make sure to put paper numbers (provided upon paper registration) instead of author names. In addition, please ensure that any references to your own previous work is made in a way that does not disclose author identity (for example, instead of "in previous work, we have shown X [ref]" use "X was shown in [ref]"). In some cases where the work is clearly a continuation of your earlier work, you may consider removing citations to your own work until the final version (for example, "we have shown X [ref]" where [ref]= "Anonymous, 200X"). Please also check that the PDF file submitted does not contain embedded identifying information.


  • Camera ready instructions
  • The camera ready format will follow the original format of AAMAS as the instructions above. Please follow the previous guidelines before submitting your paper. The paper cannot be changed or resubmitted after the deadline is passed. Your paper may be withdrawn from the publication in COOS'14 if any of the previous guidelines is missing.

    The submission of your final form will be through EasyChair.

    The early registration deadline is March 25, 14 through AAMAS registration website. Please make sure that at least one of the authors of accepted paper must attend and present the paper at the workshop.

Overview of the Current Conjunction:

- AAMAS 2014 :

The AAMAS (International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems) series was initiated in 2002 as a merger of three highly respected individual conferences: AGENTS (International Conference on Autonomous Agents), ICMAS (International Conference on Multi-Agent Systems), and ATAL (International Workshop on Agent Theories, Architectures, and Languages). The aim of the joint conference is to provide a single, high-profile, internationally renowned forum for research in the theory and practice of autonomous agents and multiagent systems.
