> *** Call for Papers & Call for Participation ***
> Third International Bi-Conference Workshop on
> AGENT-ORIENTED INFORMATION SYSTEMS (AOIS-2001)
>29 May 2001, Montreal (Canada) at Agents 2001 (not yet confirmed)
> 4 June 2001, Interlaken (Switzerland) at CAiSE'01
> Abstract submissions due: 28-Feb-2001
> Paper submissions due: 1-Mar-2001
> Notification: 1-Apr-2001
> Accepted papers due: 7-Apr-2001
> 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 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
> 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.
> To submit a regular paper as a html, postscript or pdf file,
>authors should either send it by email (or place it on a web server
>and send its URL) to Gerd Wagner at G.Wagner@... by 1-Mar-2001.
> A separate message with the title, author names, affiliations,
>contact information and an abstract has to be sent by 28-Feb-2001.
> Papers must be of reasonable size, not exceeding 15 pages. Both
>work-in-progress andcompleted research papers are welcome. It is
>planned to publish all accepted papers of AOIS-2001 in a book.
