11th Workshop on Agent Based Computing: from Model to Implementation 

Gdansk, Poland, 11 - 14 September, 2016


We would like to cordially invite you to consider contributing a paper 
to ABC:MI - held as a part of the Federated Conference on Computer 
Science and Information Systems (FedCSIS 2016).

FedCSIS a yearly international multi-conference organized by the Polish 
Information Processing Society (PTI) in technical cooperation with the 
IEEE Region 8, IEEE Poland (Gdansk) Section Computer Society Chapter, 
Poland Section Computational Intelligence Society Chapter, ACM Special 
Interest Group on Applied Computing, Lodz ACM Chapter, European Alliance 
for Innovation, Polish Operational and Systems
Research Society - POSRS, Eastern Cluster ICT Poland, Mazovia Cluster ICT.

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, there is now significant 
knowledge on how to design and implement them. There is also a deeper 
understanding of the most important issues to be addressed in the 
process. Therefore, on the top-most level a progress in development of 
methodologies for design of agent-based systems can be seen. 
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, it can 
seen 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 add-on components, further 
increasing value of existing solutions.


The Workshop primarily focuses on 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
