                                         CALL FOR PAPERS

		The International Workshop on
  SERVICE-ORIENTED COMPUTING: AGENTS, SEMANTICS, AND ENGINEERING
(SOCASE)
		http://www.swin.edu.au/hosting/socase2008/ 
  to be held at the Seventh International Joint Conference on
		AUTONOMOUS AGENTS AND MULTIAGENT SYSTEMS (AAMAS-2008)
		Estoril, Portugal, May 12 - 16, 2008
		http://gaips.inesc-id.pt/aamas2008/ 

DESCRIPTION
The purpose of this workshop is to present and discuss the recent
significant 
developments at the intersections of Multi-agent Systems, Semantic
Technology, 
and Service-oriented Computing, and to promote cross-fertilization of 
techniques. In particular, the workshop aims at identifying techniques
from 
Multi-agent System and Semantic Technology research that will have the
greatest 
impact on automating service-oriented application construction and
management, 
focusing on critical challenges such as service quality assurance,
reliability, 
and adaptability.

The Service-Oriented Computing: Agents, Semantics, and Engineering
(SOCASE) 
workshop continues the theme of previous SOCASE workshop successfully
held at 
AAMAS’07, the SOCABE workshops held at AAMAS’06, AAMAS’05 and the
WSABE workshops 
held at AAMAS’04 and AAMAS’03, with an expanded theme reflecting
the wide 
spectrum of issues of the cross section between agent-based and
service-oriented 
paradigms.

TOPICS
We invite papers on all aspects relating to the overlap of agent
technology, 
Semantic Web services, and Service-oriented Computing. Topics of
interest include, 
but are not limited to:

- Agent-oriented architectures, frameworks, and infrastructures for
distributed 
  service-oriented software and Semantic Web systems
- Agent-oriented modeling and design methods and tools for
service-oriented 
  software and Semantic Web development
- Web services and Semantic Web technologies and standards for
multi-agent system 
  design, development and integration
- Agent-enabled adaptation, evolution, and optimization of services and
processes
- Agent-based service description, advertisement, matchmaking,
discovery, and 
  brokering
- Agent-based service composition, orchestration, and choreography
- Agent-based monitoring and exception-handling for service execution
and delivery
- Agent-based negotiation and management of Quality of Service and
Service Level 
  Agreements
- Deployment and distribution of agent-based service systems and
service-oriented 
  agent systems
- Agent-based service business models, application scenarios and demos
(e.g. in 
  e-Business, e-Science, Enterprise, Telecom, etc.), and lessons
learned
- Ontology matching for service discovery, negotiation, orchestration,
composition, 
  and execution
- Ontology generation, learning and reasoning, and ontology-oriented
dynamic 
  mediation among agents

SUBMISSION and PUBLICATION
Submission is to be done electronically. The detailed instructions will
be provided 
at the SOCASE'08 web page http://www.swin.edu.au/hosting/socase2008/.
Contact Quoc 
Bao Vo (bvo@ict.swin.edu.au) for help if required.

The papers should be formatted according to LNCS specification and
submitted as PDF 
files. Instructions and templates can be found at 
http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html.

Two types of submissions are available: regular submissions of length
3000-4000 
words (approx. 8-12 printed pages) and position papers of length
1200-2000 words 
(approx. 4-6 printed pages). Position papers (and some regular papers)
may be 
presented as part of themed discussion panels; preference may be given
to position 
papers that take strong or challenging positions on important emergent
topics.

Submissions will be peer-reviewed by three reviewers per paper.
Selection criteria 
will include: relevance, significance, impact, originality, technical
soundness, 
quality of presentation. Some preference may also be given to papers
which address 
emergent trends or important common themes, or which enhance balance of
workshop 
topics. Since this is associated with the AAMAS conference, accepted
papers must 
be of real relevance to the multi-agent research community.

Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings. The
SOCASE 2008 
proceedings will be published with Springer’s LNCS, subject to an
appropriate 
number and quality of submissions. A selection of best papers will also
be 
invited to submit extended and enhanced versions of the papers to a
special 
issue of a major international journal.

IMPORTANT DATES
Submission deadline 1 February 2008
Acceptance notification 25 February 2006
Camera-ready deadline 05 March 2006
Proceedings ready 19 March 2006
Workshop held 12 or 13 May 2006
