The Intelligent Workflow, Cloud Computing and Systems Invited Session
The 5th International KES Symposium on:
Agents and Multi-Agent Systems – Technologies and Applications

Manchester, UK
29 June - 1 July 2011


As the world is becoming more interconnected with Internet and Intranet, computational infrastructure such as cloud computing and peer-to-peer architecture are becoming more important to provide users an effective foundation to share computational resources. Computational powers, storage space, generalised and specialised software and hardware capabilities and raw and analysed data can be effectively and flexibly shared through this new infrastructure, when such resources are managed well. In particular, applications that are computational resources demanding, e.g. in terms of their requirements of processing speed or to analyse large amount of data, that users often can not meet the computational needs on their own, can benefit greatly from making use of such commonly shared infrastructure.

In parallel, for domains that are complex, specialised, context and/or expert knowledge rich, to cope with such complexity, software systems are often designed based on a set of assumptions and developed for a set of pre-determined tasks. When such systems not only have to cope with rich domain knowledge, but also need to meet varying and changing user needs, it often presents a challenge and obstacle, especially for conventional static software systems. It will therefore be advantageous, if such rich domain and expert knowledge can be understood by software system so that it can re-formulate itself as appropriate to meet new user demands and carry out new tasks. Such software applications may possess intelligences to cope with such demands. They may also be open systems and designed to resolve open problems. Virtual workflow machines are one of such examples.

This special session welcome reports on the above related efforts. It will focus on recent research and application results. A list of interested topics for this session, but not limited to, is provided below:

* Algorithms and techniques on intelligent workflow
* Developments and applications on intelligent workflow systems
* Algorithms and techniques on cloud computing
* Algorithms and techniques on peer-to-peer computing
* Developments and applications on cloud computing
* Developments and applications on peer-to-peer computing
* Algorithms and techniques on workflow and processes
* Virtual organisation and collaboration
* Virtualisation and workflow execution
* Workflow execution on massive data
* Multi-agent systems and techniques and workflow execution
* Reasoning, collaborations and cooperation between agents and workflow execution
* Planning, co-planning and workflow execution
* Multi-agent semantics based communication, collaboration and workflow execution
* Relevant real-world applications and scenarios

Instructions for Authors

Submitted papers must follow the format requirements as detailed in the Conference Web Site:

Papers should not exceed 10 pages in Springer format. Papers longer than this will be subject to an additional charge. Shorter papers will be acceptable if they adequately convey the material to be described, and are not so short as to be trivial or lacking in depth.

All papers should be submitted electronically using the software reviewing system, Prose, indicated at the above conference web site.

Paper Publications

Accepted papers will be published by Springer Verlag, as book chapters in a volume of their Engineering Series and indexed in ISI conference publications, EI, INSPEC, etc.

Important Dates

Submission of Papers: February 10, 2011
Notification of Acceptance: February 24, 2011
Upload of Final Publication Files: March 11, 2011
