      >WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION
      > Agent-Orientation is emerging as a powerful new paradigm
      >in computing. Agent-oriented concepts and techniques could
      >well be the foundations for the next generation of mainstream
      >information systems.
      > Information systems have become the backbone of all kinds
      >of organizations today. Yet the inflexibilities in current
      >technologies and methods have also resulted in poor performance,
      >incompatibilties, and obstacles to change. As many organizations
      >are reinventing themselves to meet the challenges of global
      >competition and e-commerce, there is increasing pressure to
      >develop and deploy new technologies that are flexible, robust,
      >and responsive to rapid and unexpected change.
      > Agent concepts, which originated in artificial intelligence
      >but which have further developed and evolved in many areas of
      >computing, hold great promise for responding to the new realities
      >of information systems. The workshop will focus on how agent
      >concepts and techniques will contribute to meeting information
      >systems needs today and tomorrow.
      >
      >TOPICS include (but are not limited to):
      >- agent-oriented modeling and design methods
      >- models/architectures for agent-oriented information systems
      >- novel information system technologies based on software agents
      >- agent-oriented requirements engineering
      >- agent-oriented approaches to data integration
      >- agents and knowledge management
      >- ontologies in agent-oriented information systems
      >- agent-based workflow management systems
      >- agent-oriented enterprise and business process modeling
      >- agent communication languages for business communication
      >- agents in enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems
      >
      >WORKSHOP FORMAT
      > The technical program will include invited talks by leading
      >experts in the field, one or more panel discussions, and contributed
      >papers. Poster sessions are also being planned.

      >SUBMISSION
      > To submit a regular paper as a html, postscript or pdf file,
