Authors may not submit any paper to AAMAS that has already appeared in an archival forum (see "Archival and Nonarchival Publications" described below). Authors must ensure that no submission to AAMAS is under review for another archival forum between the AAMAS submission and decision dates.
Authors must identify any overlap between their submission and any other works, including nonarchival publications of others, or authors' own concurrent submissions to any archival forums. Authors should provide references to such works and identify the overlap within the submission itself.
If the overlap is to the authors' own previously work published in an archival forum, cite it in the third person. For example, say "The prior work of Jones (2011) demonstrated..." rather than "Our prior work (Jones, 2011) demonstrated...".
If the overlap is to the authors' own concurrent submission to an archival forum, cite it as "Anonymous", and provide a copy of the overlapping work to the AAMAS PC chairs.
Regarding extended abstracts and subsequent submissions of the full idea, see "Extended abstracts and later elaborations".
The purpose of an extended abstract is to give the authors the chance to present promising work as a poster, which is not fully matured as a full paper, so that it can be polished through the discussion at AAMAS, and hopefully can be accepted at a later AAMAS.
For such a later publication that elaborates an extrended abstract, there is of course overlap with the extended abstract. Therefore, the rules stated above apply.
