=========================================================== F I N A L C A L L F O R P A P E R S DALT 2003 First International Workshop on Declarative Agent Languages and Technologies Melbourne, Australia July 15th 2003 http: //centria.di.fct.unl.pt/%7Ejleite/dalt03/index.htm In conjunction with AAMAS 2003 2nd International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems http://www.aamas-conference.org/ Submission: 11 of April, 2003 Post-Proceedings published by Springer-Verlag (LNAI) =========================================================== TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION Agent metaphors and technologies are ever more adopted to harness and govern the complexity of today's systems. As a consequence, the growing complexity of agent systems calls for models and technologies that promote system predictability, and enable feature discovery and verification. Recent advances in the area of logics and formal methods make declarative languages and technologies a mostly promising approach to the modeling and engineering of complex agent systems. DALT aims at fostering a discussion forum to export, on the one hand, such techniques into the broader community of agent researchers and practitioners and, on the other hand, to bring in the issues of real-world, complex, and possibly large-scale agent system design in the perspective of formal methods and declarative technologies. DALT 2003 will take place in Melbourne, Australia, in conjunction with AAMAS, the 2nd International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multi-Agent Systems. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: * Declarative agent communication and coordination languages * Knowledge-based and knowledge-intensive MAS * Modeling of agent rationality * Declarative approaches to the engineering of MAS * High level agent specification languages * Practical aspects of declarative agent programming and implementation * Formal methods for the specification and verification of MAS * Computational logics in MAS * Argumentation and dialectical systems in MAS * Declarative description of contracts and negotiation issues in MAS * Lessons learned from the design and implementation of MAS * Declarative paradigms for the combination of heterogeneous agents * Constraints and MAS * Declarative representation of policies and security in MAS SUBMISSIONS We welcome and encourage the submission of high quality, original papers, which are not simultaneously submitted for publication elsewhere. Papers should be written in English, formatted according to the Springer LNCS style, which can be obtained at (http://www.springer .de/comp/lncs/authors.html), and not exceed 16 pages including figures, references, etc. Send your paper in PostScript (PS) or Portable Document Format (PDF) to jleite_(on)_di.fct.unl.pt. IMPORTANT DATES * Submission, 11 of April, 2003 * Notification, 6 of May, 2003 * Camera Ready, 16 of May, 2003 PROCEEDINGS To encourage and promote the discussion, early and final versions of the accepted papers will be available online, at the workshop's web page, as soon as they are available. A printed volume with the proceedings will be available at the workshop. Authors of papers presented at the workshop will be asked to extend their contributions, possibly incorporating the results of the workshop discussion, to be included in the workshop post-proceedings. Post-proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag as a volume of the Lecture Notes on Artificial Intelligence series (http://www.springer.d e/comp/lncs/index.html).
