In conjunction with the 14th International Conference on Ambient Systems, Networks, and Technologies ANT 2023

March 15 – 17, 2023, Leuve, Belgium.


Research on Agents and Multi-Agent Systems has matured during the last decade and many effective applications of this technology are now deployed. SARL-23 provides an international forum to present and discuss the latest scientific developments and their effective applications, to assess the impact of the approach, and to facilitate technology transfer.

SARL workshop was born with the SARL agent programming language, but the scientific results presented in SARL-23 are not restricted to SARL; other languages and agent platforms may be presented.

SARL aims at providing the fundamental abstractions for dealing with concurrency, distribution, interaction, decentralization, reactivity, autonomy and dynamic reconfiguration. These high-level features are now considered as the major requirements for an easy and practical implementation of modern complex software applications. We are convinced that the agent-oriented paradigm holds the keys to effectively meet this challenge. Considering the variety of existing approaches and meta-models in the field of agent-oriented engineering and more generally multi-agent systems, our approach remains as generic as possible and highly extensible to easily integrate new concepts and features.

The goal of SARL-23 is to provide a place where the different points of view on the modeling and the simulation with agent platforms and agent programming languages may be discussed.

SARL-23 will be held in Leuven, Belgium (March 15-17, 2023) in conjunction with the 14th International Conference on Ambient Systems, Networks, and Technologies (ANT 2023).
