CALL FOR PAPERS
=======================================

10th Workshop on Agent Based Computing: from Model to Implementation 
(ABC:MI) and 8th Agent Day

Warsaw, Poland, September 7-10, 2014

E-mail: abcmi-agentday2014 at fedcsis.org

We would like to cordially invite you to consider contributing a paper 
to ABC:MI and Agent Day - held as a part of the Federated Conference on 
Computer Science and Information Systems (FedCSIS 2014).

The field of agent technology is rapidly maturing. One of key factors 
that influence this process is the gathered body of knowledge that 
allows in-depth reflection on the very nature of designing and 
implementing agent systems. As a result, we know better how to design 
and implement them. We also understand the most important issues to be 
addressed in the process. Therefore, on the top-most level we see 
progress in development of methodologies for design of agent-based 
systems. Furthermore, these methodologies are usually supported by tools 
that allow not only top level conceptualization but guide the process 
towards implementation (e.g. by generating at least some code). Next, we 
can see that new languages for agent based systems are created, e.g. AML 
or API Calculus. Separately, tools/platforms/environments that can be 
used for design and implementation of agent systems have been through a 
number of releases, eliminating problems and adding new, important 
features. Resulting products are becoming truly robust and flexible. 
Furthermore, open source products (e.g. JADE) are surrounded by user 
communities, which often generate powerful add-on components, further 
increasing value of existing solutions.

TOPICS
=======================================

During the Workshop we are primarily interested in all aspects of the 
process that leads from the model of the problem domain to the actual 
agent-based solution. These aspects will cover both principled 
approaches and established practices of software engineering aimed at 
producing high quality software. In this context, research into the 
application of agent-based solutions to key challenges faced by software 
engineering (e.g. reduction of costs and delivery times, coping with a 
larger diversity of problems) will be of primary importance. ABC:MI 
Workshop welcomes submissions of original papers concerning all aspects 
of software agent engineering.

Topics include but are not limited to:
     - Methodologies for design of agent systems
     - Multi-agent systems product lines
     - Modeling agent systems
     - Agent architectures
     - Agent-based simulations
     - Simulating and verifying agent systems
     - Agent benchmarking and performance measurement
     - Agent communication, coordination and cooperation
     - Agent languages
     - Agent learning and planning
     - Agent mobility
     - Agent modeling, calculi, and logic
     - Agent security
     - Agents and Service Oriented Computing
     - Agents in the Semantic Web
     - Applications and Experiences

PAPER SUBMISSION AND PUBLICATION
=======================================

Papers should be submitted by April 11, 2014. Preprints will be 
published on a USB memory stick given to FedCSIS participants. Papers 
presented during the conference will be published in the IEEE Xplore 
Digital Library proceedings, and posted at the conference WWW site. The 
IEEE proceedings will be published under an ISBN and ISSN numbers (and 
an IEEE Catalog number), under a nonexclusive copyright. Since 2012, 
Proceedings of the FedCSIS conference are indexed in the Thomson Reuters 
Web of Science. Moreover, extended versions of selected papers presented 
during the conference will be published as Special Issue(s) of:
     - Scalable Computing; Practice and Experience
     - Computer Science Journal
     - other journal(s) to be announced later.
