      *        " AGENTS for BUSINESS AUTOMATION "       *


                Cross-conference Workshop at
    2002 International Conference on Internet Computing
  2002 International Conference on Artificial Intelligence

                       June 24-27, 2002
               Monte-Carlo Resort, LAS-VEGAS, USA

Regardless of economical situation, efficiency is always a top goal in
conducting business. Automation can help us to carry out business in a
fast, low-cost, and effective way with minimal human involvement. AGENT
technology is one of the most promising tools to implement BUSINESS
AUTOMATION autonomously, intelligently, and efficiently. The goals of
these sessions are to gather academic as well as industrial researchers to
exchange new ideas and experiences, to initialize new connections toward
future cooperation or to strengthen existing collaborations. 

Based on the last year event we plan to have two tracks at two
conferences: IC-AI-2002 and IC-IC-2002 
(*) Track-A: (at IC-IC-2002) " INTERNET Agents for Business Automation "
(*) Track-B: (at IC-AI-2002) " INTELLIGENT Agents for Business Automation"

We welcome papers on formalism, frameworks, architectures, algorithms,
protocols, design, evaluation (performance, QoS, security), implementation
techniques, and applications for business agent-based systems. For
subtopics please visit: http://cs.newpaltz.edu/~pham/ABA-02/

Accepted papers will be published in the INTERNET COMPUTING Conference
Proceeding and the ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE Conference Proceeding by CSREA
Press (ISBN) in hard copy. Selected papers (with extension and revision)
will be considered for journal publication. Last year, 8 papers of our
sessions were chosen to be published in a special issue of the
International Journal of E-commerce Research by the Kluwer publisher. 

You are invited to submit papers to the contact address given below by
FEBRUARY 25. Papers will be accepted in two categories: for Presentations
and for Posters. The length of the Camera-Ready version of accepted papers
will be limited to 7 (presentation) or 4 (poster) IEEE-format pages.
Please include: paper title, your names, affiliation, address, E-mail,
telephone and fax number and a maximum of 5 keywords in the first page of
your submission.
