Meeting Description:

The 6th IEEE International Workshop on Engineering Semantic Agent Systems

Held in conjunction with the 35th COMPSAC, the IEEE Signature Conference on Computers, Software, and Applications. COMPSAC 2011 will be held in Munich, Germany, July 18-22. ESAS will take place on either 18th or 22nd july.

Goal of the Workshop:

Semantic web technologies render dynamic, heterogeneous, distributed, shared semantic content equally accessible to human reader and software agents. Here the vision is to achieve a synergy with multi-agent systems (MAS) technologies whereby agents will be in the center stage. Other workshops have so far missed to garner the synergy of these technologies by taking up either the semantic web aspect or the agent aspect of the shared research issue.

ESAS 2011 has two complementary objectives:

1. To inquire into the theory and practice of engineering semantic multi-agent systems, especially methods, means, and best cases.
2. To explore into unifying software engineering methodologies employed in implementing semantic MAS applications across domains. We expect to create a lively discussion and exchange medium for experts from the two fronts: agent-based systems and ontology-based systems. Equal representation of both by papers is being aimed at.

ESAS Workshops Series aims to investigate semantics and agent systems interplay. ESAS 2011 keywords are as follows: Semantic Web, multiagent systems, software agents, MAS, ontology, semantic web services, intelligent agents, ontology-based systems, context-aware intelligent agents, software, programming languages, robotics, security, QoS. Both theory and applications are of interest.

Call for Papers:


Theme and Scope of the Workshop:

Applying Semantic Web Technologies in Developing Software Agents, Mobile Agents and Multi-Agent Systems towards REALIZING THE COMPUTED WORLD.

ESAS Workshops Series focuses on concepts, foundations and applications of semantic agent systems and bringing forward better practices of engineering them. Research and technologies related to Semantic Web and agent systems are very much in focus at ESAS. Topics of interest span a wide spectrum of both theory and practice of semantics and agent architectures, including software agents, mobile agents, autonomous semantic agents, context-aware intelligent agents, agents as semantic web services, multi-agent systems, agent communities, cooperation and goal seeking through shared policy and ontology, safety & security in semantic multi-agent information systems, and other QoS issues.

Researchers and practitioners of software agents, mobile agents, MAS and semantic web technologies are expected to propose papers and to attend the workshop. Those with interests in any aspect of semantic agents and agent-based systems are welcome. Researchers working on realization of multi-agent systems through semantic web technology and ontology-based agent applications, including distributed control, security, interoperability, service levels, and quality issues in such systems, are especially encouraged to propose papers. Enterprises and research centers developing languages, integrated development environments, tools, and middleware that can be employed in engineering the above are encouraged to propose technical papers, demo and tutorial resentations.

Prominent researchers of the field will be called upon to deliver invited talk and submit invited papers or position statements.

Important Dates:

March 15, 2011: Workshop paper submission (firm)
April 12, 2011: Workshop paper author notification
May 2, 2011: Camera-ready & author registration


Papers must be submitted electronically via the ESAS 2011 Submission Page (http://rs-1.cs.iastate.edu/ESAS2011). Please follow the IEEE Computer Society
Press Proceedings Author Guidelines to prepare your papers http://www.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/submission. All papers will be carefully reviewed by at least three reviewers. Papers can be submitted as regular papers (six pages), and the acceptance will depend on reviewer feedback. Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings of the IEEE Computer Software and Applications Conference (COMPSAC 2011) by the IEEE CS Press. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper must register as a full participant of the workshop in order to have the paper published in the proceedings. Each accepted paper must be presented in person by one of its authors.

The authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their papers for possible publication in a special issue of a relevant journal and/or an edited book. Details will be revealed pending conclusion of negotiations.

A special issue of the best papers of ESAS 2006 has been published with Multiagent and Grid Systems - An International Journal, IOS Press, ISSN 1574-1702; Volume 4, Number 3, 2008, pp: 293-346.

The authors of the papers accepted at ESAS 2007 and 2008 were invited to submit extended versions of their papers for publication in the Special Issue on Engineering Semantic Agent Systems of Expert Systems: The Journal of Knowledge Engineering by Wiley-Blackwell Publishing. This special issue is now awaiting issue assignment to appear in 2011.

The authors of ESAS 2009 were invited to submit an extended and revised version of their papers for publication in an edited volume titled Semantic Agent Systems: Foundations and Applications by Springer-Verlag; the book has now been announced at http://www.springer.com/engineering/mathematical/book/978-3-642-18307-2.
