Call For Papers

8th International Workshop on
Declarative Agent Languages and Technologies
(DALT 2010)

10 or 11 May 2010

Toronto, Canada
(held in conjunction with AAMAS 2010)



The workshop on Declarative Agent Languages and Technologies (DALT),
in its eighth edition this year, is a well-established forum for
researchers interested in sharing their experiences in combining
declarative and formal approaches with engineering and technology
aspects of agents and multiagent systems. Building complex agent
systems calls for models and technologies that ensure predictability,
allow for the verification of properties, and guarantee flexibility.
Developing technologies that can satisfy these requirements still
poses an important and difficult challenge. Here, declarative
approaches have the potential of offering solutions satisfying the
needs for both specifying and developing multiagent systems.
Moreover, they are gaining more and more attention in important
application areas such as the semantic web, service-oriented
computing, security, and electronic contracting.

DALT 2010 will be held as a satellite workshop of AAMAS 2010, the 9th
International Joint Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent
Systems, in May 2010 in Toronto, Canada. Following the success of
seven previous editions, DALT will again aim at providing a discussion
forum to both (i) support the transfer of declarative paradigms and
techniques to the broader community of agent researchers and
practitioners, and (ii) to bring the issue of designing complex agent
systems to the attention of researchers working on declarative
languages and technologies.


DALT topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

General themes:
* specification of agents and multiagent systems
* declarative approaches to engineering agent systems

Formal techniques:
* (constraint) logic programming approaches to agent systems
* distributed constraint satisfaction
* modal and epistemic logics for agent modelling
* game theory and mechanism design for multi-agent systems
* semantics of agent communication
* model checking agents and multi-agent systems

Declarative models:
* declarative models of agent beliefs, goals and capabilities
* declarative models of bounded rationality
* declarative approaches for agent-based grid computing
* declarative paradigms for the combination of heterogeneous agents
* declarative approaches to organizations and electronic institutions
* agent-inspired declarative approaches to Web services and
service-oriented architectures

Applications of declarative techniques to:
* agents and the semantic web
* multi-agent systems for service-oriented computing
* agent-based grid computing
* agent communication and coordination languages
* protocol specification and conformance checking
* declarative description of contracts and negotiation policies
* security and trust in multiagent systems

Evaluation of declarative approaches:
* experimental analysis of declarative agent technologies
* industrial experiences with declarative agent technologies


We welcome and encourage the submission of high-quality, original
papers, which are not being submitted simultaneously for publication
elsewhere. Papers should be written in English, formatted according
to the Springer LNCS style, and not exceed 16 pages. Paper submission
is electronic via the conference website.


Printed copies of the proceedings will be available at the workshop.
Assuming a sufficient number of high-quality submissions, we are again
going to consider the publication of formal post-proceedings with an
international publisher. The post-proceedings of DALT 2003 (LNAI
2990), DALT 2004 (LNAI 3476), DALT 2005 (LNAI 3904), DALT 2006 (LNAI
4327), DALT 2007 (LNAI 4897), DALT 2008 (LNAI 5397) and DALT 2009
(LNAI 5948) have been published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture
Notes in Artificial Intelligence series.


The dates below are tentative; please check the workshop Web page for
confirmed dates.

Submission Deadline: 2 February 2010
Notification of Acceptance/Rejection: 2 March 2010
Camera Ready Due: 12 March 2010
Workshop: 10 or 11 May 2010


The list is to be confirmed/finalised; please see an updated
list in the workshop Web page.
