History of ABC:MI
Agent Based Computing: from Model to Implementation (ABC:MI) Workshop is a result of an evolutionary process involving:
- Special Track on Agents, Interactions, Mobility, and Systems - AIMS organized within the framework of the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing in 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008.
International Workshop on (Multi-)Agent Systems in E-Business: Concepts, Technologies and Applications - MASeB organized in 2006, 2007 with the IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology - WI-IAT and in 2008 with the International Conference on Intelligent Systems Design and Applications – ISDA.
Agent Based Computing Workshop – ABC initially organized in 2003, 2005, 2006 within the framework of various multiconferences, and recently (2007 and 2008) within the framework of the International Multiconference on Computing Science and Information Technology (IMCSIT - predecessor of FedCSIS).
During 2008, after receiving an invitation to create a track for the SEAA conference, we have decided that the best approach is going to be to merge the three events (AIMS, MASeB and ABC) into a single one, and focus it on the, broadly understood, software-engineering oriented aspects of Agent Based Computing. This is how the ABC:MI Workshop came to life in 2009.
Subsequent workshops took place as follows:
- ABC:MI 2013 (Organized as JAWS; within the MATES conference; without subsequent number)
- ABC:MI 2012
- ABC:MI 2011
- ABC:MI 2010
Last year (2013) the ABC:MI was not present during the FedCSIS'13 conference. In its place, the Agent Day workshop was organized. This year the two workshops are joining forces and are organized together. As een above, this is in the tradition of the ABC:MI that acts as a platform for collaboration for those agent-oriented events that would like to find strength in being together, Therefore, next you can find the history of the Agent Day workshop.
