Call for papers and Participation

------ Motivation

Many systems no longer depend on the traditional human operator to
achieve some or all of the complex properties and adaptable behavior
patterns necessary to meet demanding operational situations. Prime
drivers for this shift toward systems that comprise minimal or no
human element are the benefits of enhanced system performance, reduced
life cycle costs and the ability to operate in hazardous or remote

In this sense, autonomous systems represent the next great step in the
fusion of computing, sensing, and software to create intelligent
systems capable of interacting with the complexities of the real
world. The transition from passive to autonomous components turned
software architectures into complex platforms that may contain many
components that dynamically interact, and engage in complex
coordination protocols. Transportation, aerospace, defense and finance
are amongst some of the sectors shifting towards replacing the human
operator by architectures and implementation technologies that are
intended to provide overall system improvements.

------ Goals

An important goal of this workshop is to extend the state of the art
in both engineering and application in the context of autonomous
systems. The main idea is to bring together researchers and
practitioners, involved in the development of techniques and
applications of Autonomous Software Systems, to discuss the latest
developments, trends and innovations concerning the theory and
practice of such software.

------ Topics of Interest

The workshop will encourage submissions related to all topics in the
area of Autonomous Software Systems, including (but not limited to)
the following:

- Agent-oriented software engineering
- Agents and data mining
- Agent systems
- Agents for games
- Autonomous systems and robotics
- Domain-specific applications of autonomous software systems
- Emergent intelligence for autonomous systems
- Industry applications of autonomous software systems
- Infrastructures and tools for autonomous systems
- Multi-agent based simulation
- Programming in multi-agent systems
- Semantics for autonomous negotiation, orchestration, composition and execution
- Service-oriented computing and autonomous software systems
- Trust in autonomous societies
- Verification of autonomous software

------ Format and Submissions

Authors are invited to submit technical, original papers that should
not have been published or submitted to other workshops, journals or
book chapters. We encourage authors to present novel ideas, critique
of existing work, and practical studies and experiments related to
autonomous software systems.

Technical papers should be submitted according to the SBC format. The
papers should have at least 6 pages and must not exceed 10 A4 papes
including all text, references, appendices, and figures. Submitted
papers can be written in Portuguese or English and must be in Adobe
Portable Document Format (PDF). Please follow the guidelines
established by the Brazilian Computer Society.
