4th Workshop on Applications of Software Agents - WASA 2014


4th International Conference on Web Intelligence, Mining and Semantics: WIMS-2014

Thessaloniki, Greece, June 2-4, 2014

Workshop Description
Software agent technologies reached a certain level of maturity that allows development of applications spanning from lab prototypes to mature real-life systems, in domains that could have not been imagined before. Furthermore, software agent technologies proved their usefulness in synergy with methods of artificial intelligence and semantic technologies.

The aim of the WASA workshop is to contribute to the advancement of technologies and applications of software agents with a special interest in intelligent methods including, but not limited to: reasoning, semantics, pattern recognition, learning and cognition, etc. The workshop welcomes papers addressing research and experience reports on various applications of software agents. Papers describing finalized research, as well as work-in-progress, are welcome. The topics of the workshop cover, broadly understood, software agent and intelligent technologies connected to applications and experiences in areas like:
- e-business
- social networks
- e-learning
- grid and cloud computing
- gaming
- smart environments
- Internet of Things
- e-health
- multimedia
- disaster and crisis management
- risk analysis and mitigation
- virtual organizations
- simulation
- energy conservation
- sustainability and green computing
- planning and decision making
- traffic control
- image and video understanding
- manufacturing and industrial management
etc. (but this list is not exhaustive).

Papers will be published in the WIMS’2014 proceedings published by ACM and must be prepared according to the ACM format. Four types of submissions are solicited, according to WIMS’2014 requirements. Detailed information about submission type and format can be found on WIMS’2014 Web site:
