Call for Papers: Workshop on Agent Communication

Workshop on Agent Communication (AC 2010) at the International Joint
Conference on Agents and Multiagent Systems (AAMAS 2010), Toronto

Key Dates:

FEBRUARY 2, 2010 - Submission of contributions to workshops
MARCH 2, 2010 - Workshop paper acceptance notification
MAY 10-11, 2010 - AAMAS-2010 Workshops


Agent communication research seeks to address challenges in the
development of open multiagent systems. Open systems consist of
multiple autonomous and heterogeneous agents who communicate in order
to exchange or negotiate information, knowledge, and services. As
such, advances in agent communication are critical to advances in the
software engineering of applications as diverse as business processes,
negotiation and argumentation, virtual organizations, e-governance,
collaborative design, and so on.

We invite quality submissions that develop new insights, high-level
abstractions, patterns, languages, formal theories, reasoning, and
methodologies for agent communication. We will also appreciate
submissions concerning experiences in application development,
programming language and tool support, and communication middleware.
Proposals for standardization are also welcome.

Specifically, the workshop's focus includes the following topics in
relation to agent communication.

* Languages (ACLs)
* Protocols
* Dialogs
* Argumentation
* Virtual organizations, institutions
* Commitments, norms, and other social concepts
* Speech acts and illocutionary logic
* Trust and deception
* Correctness properties and verification
** compliance,
** interoperability,
** conformance, and so on.
* Relating agent communication to agent design and execution strategies
** game-theoretic,
** BDI,
** learning, and so on
* Multiagent system architecture
* Programming languages
* Middleware
* Patterns

The workshop will provide a great opportunity to discuss emerging
techniques and identify future trends toward agent communication. The
workshop will include an invited talk and one or more position
statements by accomplished researchers. Selected papers from the
workshop proceedings will be published as a Springer LNCS volume.
