CALL FOR PAPERS
The 8th International Workshop on
SERVICE-ORIENTED COMPUTING: AGENTS, SEMANTICS, AND ENGINEERING (SOCASE)
http://www.swin.edu.au/hosting/socase2010/
to be held at the 9th International Joint Conference on AUTONOMOUS 
AGENTS AND
MULTIAGENT SYSTEMS (AAMAS-2009) Toronto Canada, May 10-14 2010,
(http://www.cse.yorku.ca/AAMAS2010/)
 
IMPORTANT DATES
Please realize that we had to shorten the submission deadline by a week. 
For those who cannot make it till the 28 February we will still accept 
the paper till 7 March as long as we are informed about the possible 
paper submission till 28 February. The problem is that the AAMAS 
organizers need the final version of the papers by 28 February. 
Moreover, the deadline for early registration will end on 12 March. We 
will try our best to inform you about the outcome of our review process 
by 11 March but cannot guarantee that, especially not if we get the 
paper pretty late. Thus, be prepared to have to pay a slightly higher 
fee if you don't want to register for the workshop and AAMAS without 
knowing the result of the review process for your paper. Also, make sure 
that you can revise your paper till 28 March. This deadline cannot be 
extended any further.

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 the previous SOCASE workshops 
successfully held at AAMAS'09, AAMAS'08 and 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, hearing and reasoning, and ontology-oriented 
dynamic mediation among agents
 
SUBMISSION and PUBLICATION
Submission is to be done electronically. The detailed instructions are 
provided at the SOCASE'10 web page 
https://www.easychair.org/login.cgi?conf=socase10.
Contact Zakaria Maamar (Zakaria.Maamar@zu.ac.ae) for help if required.
Submitted papers have a page limit of 15 pages and should be formatted 
according to LNCS specification. Authors should submit the manuscript in 
PDF format. Instructions and templates can be found at 
http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html.
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. Similarly to the previous years the SOCASE 2010 
post-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.
