Many thanks in advance for your efforts! --------------------------------------------- Tenth International Workshop on Cooperative Information Agents (CIA 2006) September 11 - 13, 2006 University of Edinburgh, UK http://www.dfki.de/%7Eklusch/cia2006 -------------------------------------------- In cooperation with ACM - Association of Computing Machinery (ACM SIGART, ACM SIGWeb, ACM SIGKDD) GGF - Global Grid Forum Co-sponsored by Whitestein Technologies, Switzerland IEEE FIPA standards organisation for intelligent and physical agents U Edinburgh/CISA Center for Intelligent Systems and Applications, UK NESC National e-Science Center, UK AISB Society for the Study of AI and Simulation of Behaviour, UK ------------------------------------------- IMPORTANT DATES Submission of papers: APRIL 24, 2006 (EXTENDED) Notification of authors: June 2, 2006 Camera-ready papers: June 19, 2006 ------------------------------------------- AIMS & SCOPE ============ An intelligent information agent is a computational software entity that is capable of accessing one or multiple, heterogeneous and distributed information sources, proactively searching for, mediating, and maintaining relevant information or services on behalf of its human users, or other agents, at any time and anywhere. One key challenge of the development of intelligent and cooperative information system is to balance the autonomy of networked data, information, and knowledge sources with the potential payoff of leveraging them by the appropriate use of such agents. Research on intelligent information agents and systems is inherently cross disciplinary covering themes from domains such as artificial intelligence, HCI, Internet and Web technologies, information systems, information retrieval, P2P and grid computing, pervasive computing, and multiagent system technologies as well. Special topic (but not exclusive) of the 2006 edition of this series is Agent-based semantic grid computing systems and applications. The objective of the international workshop series on cooperative information agents (CIA), since its establishment in 1997, is to provide a small but distinguished, interdisciplinary forum for researchers, programmers, and managers to get informed about, present, and discuss latest high quality results in research and development of agent-based intelligent and cooperative information systems, and applications for the Internet and Web. INVITED SPEAKERS ================ To be announced. TOPICS ====== Topics of interest are but not exclusive: Systems and Applications of Information Agents Architectures of information agents. Prototypes and fielded systems of information agents. Recommender systems; collaborative cases. Issues of programming information agents. Information Agents and Grid Computing Agent-based grid computing services and infrastructure Agent-based grid computing applications Advanced Means of Collaboration and Coordination Cooperative search, collaborative recommendation. Cooperation in real-time and open environments. Self-organising information agent systems. Capability-based mediation between information agents. Collaboration in peer-to-peer networks. Agent-Based Knowledge Discovery Agent-based distributed data mining. Distributed information retrieval, text, and Web mining. Information Agents, Web Services, and the Semantic Web Agent-based information search in the semantic web. Agent-based service discovery and composition. Agent-based service matchmaking and brokering Agent-based distributed ontology mapping and learning. Mobile Information Agents Mobile information agents for distributed information retrieval. Engineering of mobile information agents. Cooperative mobile information agents. Information Agents for Pervasive Computing Environments Visions, applications, surveys; collaborative cases. Rational Information Agents Models of economic rationality. Trust and reputation. Issues of privacy of communication, data security, and jurisdiction for agent-mediated trading. Coalition and team formation algorithms. Intelligent Interfaces for Information Agents Human-agent interaction for (systems of) information agents. Life-like characters and avatars. Information agents for/applied to digital cities. Advanced, personalized 3-d visualizations of information spaces. Personalization; collaborative cases. Adaptive Information Agents Adaptive information retrieval; collaborative cases. Reasoning with imperfect information: collaborative cases. Multi-strategy and meta-learning for cooperative information agents. PROCEEDINGS =========== The proceedings of the CIA workshop series are regularly published as volume of the Springer LNCS subseries LNAI (Lecture Notes on Artificial Intelligence). Former volumes of the series are CIA-1997: LNAI 1202, CIA-1998: LNAI 1435, CIA-1999: LNAI 1652, CIA-2000: LNAI 1860, CIA-2001: LNAI 2182, CIA-2002: LNAI 2446, CIA-2003: LNAI 2782, CIA 2004: LNAI 3191, CIA 2005 (MATES 2005): LNAI 3550 The proceedings of the CIA 2006 workshop will be available to the participants of the workshop at the registration desk. SUBMISSION ========== For preparation of (camera-ready) papers to be submitted please follow the instructions for authors available at the Springer LNCS Web page: http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html For those not using the Springer LNCS style files: The paper must be formatted in A4 size using 10 point Times. (If Times is not available, please use one of the similar fonts widely used in phototypesetting.) Printing area should be 12.2 x 19.3 cm, and the interline distance should be arranged in such a way that some 42 to 45 lines occur on a full-text page. The length of each paper should not exceed 15 pages. All papers must be written in English. Please submit your paper via E-Mail to mrovatso_(on)_inf.ed.ac.uk (pls send compressed/zipped file). You will receive an acknowledgment of receipt via E-Mail within 3 days. Submission of full paper including all figures and references is either in POSTSCRIPT or PDF format only. In any case, please check whether the file is really printable on a postscript-level-2 printer before submitting it. Double Submission Policy ------------------------ CIA 2006 will not accept papers which have already been published, or accepted for publication. However, these restrictions apply ONLY to journals, NOT to conferences, workshops, or symposia. Though, full copies of papers that are published elsewhere are, of course, not acceptable! Papers not conforming to the above requirements may be rejected without review. Submissions will be reviewed for quality, correctness, sufficient originality, and relevance. STUDENT SUPPORT =============== There will be limited financial support provided to a limited number of students as (co-)authors of accepted papers to present their work at the CIA 2006 workshop. AWARDS ====== The CIA 2006 workshop issues both a BEST PAPER award, and a SYSTEM INNOVATION award to acknowledge and honor highly innovative research and development, respectively, in the area of intelligent information agents for the Internet and Web. The CIA 2006 SYSTEM INNOVATION AWARD is sponsored by Whitestein Technologies. Nominations for the CIA 2006 SYSTEM INNOVATION AWARD are eligible either by means of regular paper submission, or external explicit request for nomination by submitting a brief (max. 4 pages, 10pt Times) description of the system in terms of its core functionalities, main techniques used to implement them, and (publicly available reference to) experimental results, as well as a summary of the innovative features in comparison to other existing systems. After confidential voting by the PC, chairs, and sponsors of the award the top ranked nominees will be requested to demonstrate a running prototype of their system at the workshop to all participants and the jury for a final public voting. The prize money is 500 euros. Both awards will be given at the end of the workshop.
