The ICAART Conference (The 10th International Conference on Agents and Artificial Intelligence) organized by INSTICC (Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication) will take place from 16 to 18 of January 2018 in Funchal, Madeira, Portugal.

The purpose of ICAART is to bring together researchers, engineers and practitioners interested in the theory and applications in the areas of Agents and Artificial Intelligence. This conference welcomes original papers of either practical or theoretical nature, presenting research or applications, of specialized or interdisciplinary nature, addressing any aspect of Agents and Artificial Intelligence.

One of the most important contributions that ICAART brings about is the creation of a high level forum in collaboration with the most prestigious internationally recognized experts, including names such as Jaap van den Herik (Leiden University, Netherlands) as a Conference Chair and Ana Paula Rocha (LIACC-NIAD&R / FEUP, Portugal) as a Program Co-Chair.

As in previous editions, ICAART 2018 will have several invited keynote speakers, who are internationally recognized experts in their areas. At this time, we have confirmed the participation of the following keynote lectures:
- Luc Steels (Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium;
- Virginia Dignum (Delft University of Technology, Netherlands).

All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef ( and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier).

The proceedings will be submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP, EI (Elsevier Index) and Scopus.

INSTICC is the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication, a scientific, non-profit, association whose main goals are to serve the international scientific community by promoting, developing and disseminating knowledge in the areas of information systems and technologies, control and communications.

To achieve these goals, INSTICC is committed to integrate and support many activities relevant for the international scientific community, including:
  • Promotion of the mobility of renowned researchers, usually involved as keynote speakers at INSTICC events, so that they can share their knowledge with conference delegates; 
  • Providing grants to support the presence of many young researchers from all over the world, especially from regions facing economic difficulties, who wish to attend INSTICC conferences; 
  • Publication of proceedings, books and journals - some of them in cooperation with distinguished international publishers - widely indexed and made available at appropriate digital libraries; 
  • Sponsorship of research projects, proposed by universities and R&D institutes, related to INSTICC main interest areas; 
  • Collaboration with international associations, who may technically co-sponsor INSTICC events, as well as with companies involved in R&D or supporting of the international academic community. 

Over the years, these initiatives have brought together a large and very diversified international community spread over more than 141 countries, including more than 500 high profile keynote speakers, over 15600 specialized reviewers and about 46000 authors.
