Agent-based computing has been hailed as the next significant 
breakthrough in software development, with the potential to affect many 
aspects of computer science, from artificial intelligence to the
technologies and models of distributed computation. Agent-based systems 
are capable of autonomous action in open, dynamically-changing 
environments. Agents are currently being applied in domains as diverse 
as business information systems, computer games and interactive cinema, 
information retrieval and filtering, user interface design and 
industrial process control. The aim of the ABC'06 is to bring together 
researchers and developers from industry and academia in order to report 
on the latest scientific and technical advances, discuss and debate the 
major issues, and showcase the latest systems.

The special session welcomes submissions of original papers concerning 
all aspects of software agents. Submissions involving both 
implementation and theoretical issues are encouraged.

Accepted papers will be considered for publication in the Multiagent and 
Grid Systems - An International Journal after the workshop. The Journal 
aims to provide a timely and focal research forum for academics and 
practitioners in the thematic areas of Multiagent Systems, Grid 
Computing, Autonomic/Adaptive Computing, and their intersections.
Topics include but are not limited to:

- Agent architectures
- Agent-based software engineering
- Agent-based simulations
- Agent benchmarking and performances
- Agent communication, coordination and cooperation
- Agent languages
- Agent learning and planning
- Agent mobility
- Agent Modeling
- Formal methods, calculi and logics in agent systems
- Agent security
- Applications and Experiences
- Simulating and verifying agent systems
- Multi-Agent Systems in Applications
    - Disaster Management
    - E-commerce
    - Workflow management
    - Other areas


* Submission and Publication

- Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their scientific    
    merit and relevance to the Workshop topics
- Papers presented at the Workshop will be included into the Conference
    Proceedings and published on a CD (with an ISSN/ISBN number)
- Extended versions of selected papers will be published as a Special
    Issue of a journal (to be announced later)
- Authors should submit papers through the conference website, which
    will be announced later
- Papers are not to exceed 10 pages (LNCS style)
- Final camera-ready versions of accepted papers will be required by
    October 1, 2006
