Call For Papers


10th Workshop on Agent Based Computing: from Model to Implementation (ABC:MI)

Lodz, Poland, September 13-16, 2015


We would like to cordially invite you to consider contributing a paper to ABC:MI - held as a part of the Federated Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems (FedCSIS 2015).

FedCSIS a yearly international multi-conference organized by the Polish Information Processing Society (PTI) in cooperation with the IEEE Region 8, ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing, European Alliance for Innovation, Lodz ACM Chapter, Polish Operational and Systems Research Society - POSRS, Eastern Cluster ICT Poland, Mazovia Cluster ICT (further technical collaborations will be announced shortly).

The field of agent technology is rapidly maturing. One of key factors that influence this process is the gathered body of knowledge that allows in-depth reflection on the very nature of designing and implementing agent systems. As a result, there is now significant knowledge on how to design and implement them. There is also a deeper understanding of the most important issues to be addressed in the process. Therefore, on the top-most level a progress in development of methodologies for design of agent-based systems can be seen. Furthermore, these methodologies are usually supported by tools that allow not only top level conceptualization but guide the process towards implementation (e.g. by generating at least some code). Next, it can seen that new languages for agent based systems are created, e.g. AML or API Calculus. Separately, tools/platforms/environments that can be used for design and implementation of agent systems have been through a number of releases, eliminating problems and adding new, important features. Resulting products are becoming truly robust and flexible. Furthermore, open source products (e.g. JADE) are surrounded by user communities, which often generate powerful add-on components, further increasing value of existing solutions.


The Workshop primarily focuses on all aspects of the process that leads from the model of the problem domain to the actual agent-based solution. These aspects will cover both principled approaches and established practices of software engineering aimed at producing high quality software. In this context, research into the application of agent-based solutions to key challenges faced by software engineering (e.g. reduction of costs and delivery times, coping with a larger diversity of problems) will be of primary importance. ABC:MI Workshop welcomes submissions of original papers concerning all aspects of software agent engineering.

Topics include but are not limited to:
- Methodologies for design of agent systems
- Multi-agent systems product lines
- Modeling agent systems
- Agent architectures
- Agent-based simulations
- Simulating and verifying agent systems
- Agent benchmarking and performance measurement
- Agent communication, coordination and cooperation
- Agent languages
- Agent learning and planning
- Agent mobility
- Agent modeling, calculi, and logic
- Agent security
- Agents and Service Oriented Computing
- Agents in the Semantic Web
- Applications and Experiences


Papers should be submitted by April 24, 2015. Preprints will be published on a USB memory stick provided to the FedCSIS participants. Only papers presented during the conference will be submitted to the IEEE for inclusion in the Xplore Digital Library. Furthermore, proceedings, published in a volume with ISBN and ISSN numbers will posted at the conference WWW site. Extended versions of selected papers presented during the conference will be invited to:
- the Special Issue of Scalable Computing; Practice and Experience
- Complex Adaptive Systems Modeling (publication fee waiver for the papers that are going to be selected is expected)
- Multiagent and Grid Systems
- Computer Science Journal (7 points in current ranking of MNiSW - this is something cryptic to the outsiders, but will be clear for scientists from Poland)


- Paper submission: April 24, 2015
- Position paper submission: June 1, 2015
- Acceptance decision: June 15, 2015
- Final version of paper submission: July 1, 2015
- Final deadline for discounted fee: July 1, 2015
- Conference dates: September 13-16, 2015
