[Apologies for multiple copies] Seventh International Bi-Conference Workshop on Agent-Oriented Information Systems (AOIS-2005 @ AAMAS) Call for papers Agent concepts hold great promise for responding to the new realities of active information systems. They offer higher level abstractions and mechanisms which address issues such as knowledge representation and reasoning, communication, coordination, cooperation among heterogeneous and autonomous parties, perception, commitments, goals, beliefs, intentions, etc. On the one hand, the concrete implementation of these concepts can lead to advanced functionalities, e.g., in inference-based query answering, transaction control, adaptive workflows, brokering and integration of disparate information sources, and automated communication processes. On the other hand, their rich representational capabilities allow more faithful and flexible treatments of complex organizational processes, leading to more effective requirements analysis and architectural and detailed design. The workshop will focus on how agent concepts and techniques will contribute to meeting information systems needs today and in the future. To foster greater communication and interaction between the Information Systems and Agents communities, we are aiming to organize the workshop as a bi-conference event. It is intended to be a single "logical" event with two "physical" venues. It is hoped that this arrangement will encourage greater participation from, and more exchange between, both communities. The workshop encourages submissions on all topics related to agent-oriented information systems, including (but not limited to) the following: * agent-oriented modeling and design methods * models and architectures for agent-oriented/active information systems * novel information system technologies based on software agents * agent-oriented requirements engineering * agents and knowledge management * agent-oriented approaches to data integration * agent-based workflow modeling * agent orientation and e-services/web services * agent orientation in web information systems * agent-oriented enterprise and business process modeling * agent communication languages for business communication * ontologies and agents * managing trust and reputation * automated business-to-business interaction (including negotiation and contracting) Papers should be limited to approximately 5000-6000 words or 8 pages - please use the IEEE format (see AAMAS website for details). Due date 14 March 2005. Authors will be advised regarding acceptability of their papers by April 18 2005. Final versions of accepted papers will be due by approximately May 19. The workshop will be on either July 25 or 26 as part of the AAMAS conference in Utrecht. Paper submission is by emailing a PDF file to winikoff_(on)_cs.rmit.edu.au. In addition, we ask authors to notify the workshop organizers of their intention to submit by emailing a title, list of authors, and an abstract to winikoff_(on)_cs.rmit.edu.au. The deadline for receiving papers is 11:59pm GMT, 14th March. Notification of intention to submit should be received by 11:59pm GMT, 11th March. Submitted papers must be original, have not been published elsewhere, and not be under consideration for publication elsewhere. If a paper is accepted, an author must attend the workshop to present the paper. Important Dates Abstract, title, and authors due 11th March (11:59pm GMT) Paper submission due 14th March (11:59pm GMT) Notification of Acceptance 18th April Camera ready copies due 19th May (TBC) AOIS-2005 @ AAMAS Workshop 25 or 26th July Review Process All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least three members of the programme committee. It is anticipated that approximately 10-15 papers will be accepted for presentation and publication. Publication Workshop notes (copies of all accepted papers) will be made available to workshop participants. Following the conference, we intend to publish a post-proceedings for AOIS 2005 in the Springer LNCS series. [Similar post-proceedings for AOIS2003 and AOIS2004 are available in the LNCS series.]. For these post-proceedings, authors will be invited to extend their papers, which will be re-reviewed for the LNCS publication.
