FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS €“ EXTENDED DEADLINE

Workshop on Agent Based Computing: from Model to Implementation VII (ABC:MI'10) 
Wisla, Poland, October 18-20, 2010 

(URL: http://www.abcmi.imcsit.org Facebook group: http://tinyurl.com/yja9mxe)

Organized within the framework of the International Multiconference on Computer Science and Information Technology (IMCSIT; www.imcsit.org) in-cooperation with the EU COST Action IC0801 Agreement Technologies.


The field of agent technology is rapidly maturing. One of key factors that influence this process is the gathered body of knowledge that allows in-depth reflection on the very nature of designing and implementing agent systems. As a result, we know better how to design and implement them. We also understand the most important issues to be addressed in the process. Therefore, on the top-most level we see progress in development of methodologies for design of agent-based systems. Furthermore, these methodologies are usually supported by tools that allow not only top level conceptualization but guide the process towards implementation (e.g. by generating at least some code). Next, we can see that new languages for agent based systems are created, e.g. AML or API Calculus. Separately, tools/platforms/environments that can be used for design and implementation of agent systems have been through a number of releases, eliminating problems and adding new, important features. Resulting products are becoming truly robust and flexible. Furthermore, open source products (e.g. JADE) are surrounded by user communities, which often generate powerful ad-on components, further increasing value of existing solutions. 

During the Workshop we are primarily interested in all aspects of the process that leads from the model of the problem domain to the actual agent-based solution. These aspects will cover both principled approaches and established practices of software engineering aimed at producing high quality software. In this context, research into the application of agent-based solutions to key challenges faced by software engineering (e.g. reduction of costs and delivery times, coping with a larger diversity of problems) will be of primary importance. 

ABC:MI Workshop welcomes submissions of original papers concerning all aspects of software agent engineering. Topics include but are not limited to:

* Methodologies for design of agent systems
* Multi-agent systems product lines
* Modeling agent systems
* Agent architectures
* Agent-based simulations
* Simulating and verifying agent systems
* Agent benchmarking and performance measurement
* Agent communication, coordination and cooperation
* Agent languages
* Agent learning and planning
* Agent mobility
* Agent modeling, calculi, and logic
* Agent security
* Agents and Service Oriented Computing
* Agents in the Semantic Web
* Applications and Experiences


PAPER SUBMISSION
* Authors should submit draft versions of full paper(s) (PDF files).

* The total length of a paper should not exceed 8 pages (IEEE style). IEEE style templates are available at the conference site.

* Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their scientific merit and relevance to the workshop.

* Accepted and Presented paper will be published in the Conference Proceedings and included in the IEEE Xplore® database 

* IMCSIT organizers reserve right to move accepted papers between IMCSIT events.


POST-CONFERENCE PUBLICATIONS

* Authors of selected best papers accepted and presented during the ABC:MI Workshop will be invited to submit extended versions of their contributions to the special issue of the Multiagent and Grid Systems Journal (published by the IOS Press; Special Issue to be published as the last issue published in 2011).

* The second special issue is planned for the Science of Computer Programming journal (ISI indexed, published by Elsevier).

* Finally, a separate special issue is planned for the Journal of Network and Computer Applications (ISI indexed, published by Elsevier). This issue is to be topic-focused, and consist of selected papers originating from the ABC:MI and from an open call.
