The Seventh International Workshop on



to be held at the Eighth International Joint Conference on 
May 10 - 15, 2009


Submission deadline 25 January 2009
Acceptance notification 25 February 2009
Camera-ready deadline 05 March 2009
Workshop held 10 or 11 May 2009


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

The Service-Oriented Computing: Agents, Semantics, and Engineering
(SOCASE) workshop continues the theme of the previous SOCASE workshops
successfully held at 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


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
●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
●Ontology matching for service discovery, negotiation, orchestration,
composition, and execution
●Ontology generation, hearing and reasoning, and ontology-oriented
dynamic mediation among agents 


Submission is to be done electronically. The detailed instructions will
be provided at the SOCASE'09 web page
http://www.swin.edu.au/hosting/socase2009/. Contact Zakaria Maamar
(Zakaria.Maamar@zu.ac.ae) 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

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
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.
Similarly to the previous years the SOCASE 2009 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.
