Call For Papers

Every autonomous software component could be considered an agent. Researchers have actively studied agents for many years due to the advantages they offer to many research domains in computer science. Intelligent agents offer more, since they are able to be adapted to the users’ needs and their environment. Nowadays, agents are the carriers of computational intelligence in every aspect of research. They may be enhanced by intelligent techniques taken from various research domains such as Fuzzy Set Theory, Swarm Intelligence, Ontological and Approximate Reasoning, and Machine Learning. The combination of the autonomous and adaptive nature of agents with computational intelligence techniques could lead to collaborative multi-agent systems that offer more efficient pervasive applications for users.

Objective of the Book
The main focus of this book will be on intelligent agents acting based on computational intelligence techniques found in other domains of Computer Science. This book will record recent developments in this field and present to developers the appropriate tools for creating intelligent and adaptive pervasive applications utilizing state-of-the-art techniques. Of special importance will be the adoption of Fuzzy Logic, Swarm Intelligence, Evolutionary Computation, and Ontological Engineering in multi-agent systems, which will provide the means for knowledge representation, reasoning, inference and consensus decision making. In addition to providing an overview of recent developments, the book will show how intelligent techniques can assist users in finding and consuming the appropriate information and pervasive services.

Target Audience
The book will be useful for researchers, technicians and students in the following areas of Computer Science: Multi-agent systems, Fuzzy Logic, Swarm Intelligence, Knowledge Representation and Reasoning, Ontological Engineering and Semantic Web, Machine Learning.

Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
• Agents in:
o Electronic Markets and Auctions
o Intelligent Systems
o Semantic Web
o Multimedia Systems
o Automated Planning Systems
o Data Mining and Information Retrieval Systems
o Pervasive Computing
• Agents using:
o Ontologies for Knowledge Representation and Reasoning Techniques
o Fuzzy Logic
o Machine Learning Techniques
o Swarm Intelligence
o Game Theory
• Learning and Adaptation in Agent Systems
• Web Services and Intelligent Agents
• Trust and reputation in Agent Systems
• Practical Applications of Agent Systems
• Decision Making in Agent Systems

Submission Procedure
Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit on or before November 20, 2011, a 2-3 page chapter proposal clearly explaining the mission and concerns of their proposed contributions. Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by December 20, 2011 on the status of their proposals and provided with further guidelines. Full chapters are expected to be submitted by March 4, 2012. All submitted chapters will be reviewed on a double-blind review basis. Contributors may also be requested to serve as reviewers for this project.

This book is scheduled to be published by IGI Global (formerly Idea Group Inc.), publisher of the “Information Science Reference” (formerly Idea Group Reference), “Medical Information Science Reference,” “Business Science Reference,” and “Engineering Science Reference” imprints. For additional information regarding the publisher, please visit This publication is anticipated to be released in 2012.
