This workshop aims to address both theoretical and practical issues related to developing and deploying multi-agent systems. It promotes the discussion and exchange of ideas concerning concepts, methodologies, techniques and principles that are important for multi-agent programming technology, and application in areas such as the electronic institutions, semantic web, web services, security, grid computing, ambient intelligence, pervasive computing, and electronic contracting. This workshop will offer a rich forum for researchers that are interested in sharing their experiences about formal approaches, languages, engineering and technology aspects of multi-agent systems.

The workshop has a special track on Agents, Web Services, Ontologies, and Integrated Methodologies (AWESOME).

Post-proceedings of selected and revised LADS'010 papers will be published as a volume in Springerís Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence series.
