About these proceedings


This book constitutes the revised and selected papers from the 5th International Workshop on Engineering Multi-Agent Systems held in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in May 2018, in conjunction with AAMAS 2018. 

The 11 full papers presented in this volume were carefully reviewed and selected from 18 submissions. The book contains also the best paper of the workshop that has been published previously in another LNCS volume.

The EMAS workshop focusses on the cross-fertilisation  of  ideas and experiences in the various fields with the aim to enhance knowledge and expertise in MAS engineering , to improve the state-of-the-art, to define new directions  for MAS engineering, to investigate how established methodologies for engineering and large-scale and open MAS can be adapted.
