PRIMA 2013 proceedings will be published by Springer as a volume in the LNAI series and the proceedings will be available at the conference. All papers should be submitted electronically using the conference management tool in PDF format and formatted using Springer manuscript submission guideline: http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html
The papers can be submitted to one of the following categories:
1) Regular papers - These papers can be up to 16 pages in length in the LNCS format. The papers should present original theoretical and/or experimental research that has not been previously published, accepted for publication, or is not currently under review by another conference or journal. Note that some full papers may be accepted as short papers (see below).
2) Short papers - These papers can be up to 8 pages in length in the LNCS format showcasing works-in-progress. These ‘early-innovation’ papers will be reviewed with an emphasis on novelty/originality of the idea.
3) Special session on applications - These paper can be 8 or 16 pages long. The papers for this track would report experiences on using agents in an application domain and also discuss the challenges (resolved and unresolved issues) in deploying them. In general, papers discussing lessons learned and general directions of research using agents are solicited for this track.
Note that all the submitted papers must be in a form suitable for “double-blind” review. In order to make blind reviewing possible, authors must omit their names and affiliations from the paper. Also, while the references should include all published literature relevant to the paper, including previous works of the authors, it should not include unpublished works. When referring to one’s own work, use the third person rather than the first person. For example, say ”Previously, Foo and Bar  have shown that…”, rather than ”In our previous work  we have shown that…”. Such identifying information can be added back to the final camera-ready version of accepted papers.
Each submission will be subject to peer review in two rounds coordinated by an international Senior Program Committee, and authors will be able to provide a short “rebuttal” of the reviews before final decisions are made.
