Workshop on Agent Based Computing IV  (ABC'07)

Wisla, Poland, October 15-17, 2007

Organized within the framework of the International Multiconference on Computer Science and Information Systems and co-located with the XXIII Autumn Meeting of the Polish Information Processing Society.

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 '07 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.

Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Agent architectures
  • Agent-oriented software engineering
  • Agent-based simulations
  • Agent benchmarking and performances
  • Agent communication, coordination and cooperation
  • Agent languages
  • Agent learning and planning
  • Agent mobility
  • Agent modeling, calculi, and logics
  • Agent security
  • Agents in the semantic web
  • Applications and Experiences
  • Simulating and verifying agent systems
  • Multi-Agent Systems in Applications
    • Disaster Management
    • E-commerce
    • Workflow management
    • Other areas

Papers Submission

  • Authors should submit draft papers (as Postscript, PDF of MSWord file).
  • The total length of a paper should not exceed 10 pages (LNCS style). LNCS style templates are available here.
  • Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their scientific merit and relevance to the workshop.
  • Accepted and presented papers will be included in the Conference Proceedings and published on a CD (ISSN 1896-7094)

Authors of selected papers accepted and presented during the ABC IV Workshops will be invited to submit extended versions of their contributions to a Special Issue of the International Journal of Intelligent Information and Database Systems.

Extended version of papers accepted for the ABC III Workshop have been invited to be published in a Special Issue of the Multiagent and Grid Systems - An International Journal .
