Submissions accepted for the Demo track will be advertised on the AAMAS website and in the conference proceedings. Each Demo submission must consist of the following elements:

  1. Paper.
    1. Pages 1-2 to describe the system to be demonstrated. More precisely, the authors are encouraged to discuss the application domain, the problem scenario, the technology used, the agent/multi-agent techniques involved, the innovations of the system, and its live and interactive aspects, etc.
    2. Page 3 to list the bibliographic references.
    3. Page 4 to provide the organizers with a list of requirements for the demo setting at the conference.
    Papers must be prepared using the AAMAS format and submitted as PDF files. Papers which do not adhere to the guidelines above will be rejected.
  2. Video. The paper to contain a URL linking to a demonstration video of no more than 5 minutes in duration (QuickTime or YouTube format) showing and explaining the execution of the system.
  3. Supervisor Endorsement (Student Projects Only). A brief note from the student's supervisor describing the student's individual contribution to the project.

Submissions should be made through the Demo track submission system.

Accepted Demos papers will be included in the AAMAS proceedings. At least one author of each accepted demonstration is required to register and attend the conference to give a live demonstration.


The submission and selection processes for the AAMAS 2017 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 evaluation report with the notification. The evaluation criteria are:
  • Relevance to the AAMAS conference
  • Significance and originality
  • Live demo presentation and technical quality
  • Video content and presentation
  • Maturity and readiness for demonstration
  • Potential for public interaction
  • Potential impact in the intended application domain
  • Potential interest to a broader audience


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, a monitor with a standard VGA connector, a power strip, and a 2m table for each demonstration.


The page limit for the DEMO track submissions is 2 pages, with one additional page for bibliography references. The submission should be made through the DEMO track submission system and follow the AAMAS formatting requirements given below.

Formatting Instructions

The AAMAS 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).

Authors are encouraged to use the LaTeX style file (aamas2017.cls) provided for formatting AAMAS 2017 submissions. An ACM Word template is also available but LaTeX is strongly preferred (and remember that only PDF files can be uploaded). An example of a latex file using the required style files for formatting AAMAS 2017 submissions is available here (Behnam – use the correct link from the conference webpage).

Please do not modify the style files or any layout parameters. To ensure all submissions are treated fairly and equally, authors are asked to follow all the instructions above. Submitted papers might be rejected without reviewing if they do not adhere to all the above requirements.

Mandatory Sections

The mandatory sections of the ACM styles are also mandatory for AAMAS 2017 submissions. According to ACM: "these index terms affect the ease and accuracy of retrieval within the Digital Library which ultimately benefits authors by allowing for greater distribution of their work". Thus, you should make an effort filling in the following sections.

Categories and Subject Descriptors:

Details of the ACM Computing Classification Scheme are available here.


This section contains your choice of terms by which you would like your paper to be indexed. Please refer to the Call for Papers page for a list of topics used for paper classification within the AAMAS 2017 submission system.


The video should be no more than five minutes long (QuickTime or YouTube format) and include the following elements:

  1. Introduction: Introduce concept/product.
  2. Aim: What are the target group(s) for the product?
  3. Development: Architecture overview, agent-based techniques and technologies used for development.
  4. Demo.
  5. Main features: Present main features of the product and discuss benefits as well as innovations.

Videos of accepted demo papers will be played during breaks and the demo sessions in order to provide maximum visibility to the products.
