      Third International Symposium
      "From Agent Theory to Agent Implementation"

      <URL: http://www.ai.univie.ac.at/~paolo/conf/at2ai3.html>

      held at the
      16th European Meeting on Cybernetics and Systems Research
      (EMCSR 2002)

      April 2-5, 2002, Vienna, Austria, EU


      Paper submission deadline: November 16, 2001


      By the time the first symposium "From Agent Theory to Agent
      Implementation" was held in April 1998, agent-based technology had
      already made a fast inroad from highly specialised workshops to
      mainstream textbooks. Rapid progress has continued to date, resulting
      in an ever expanding range of underpinning theories, architectural
      models, engineering methods, implementation frameworks, and tools.

      Even so, there remain many issues to be investigated and clarified
      concerning the relations between theoretical models of agents and
      multiagent systems on the one hand, and the deployment of
      implementations based on these models and architectures in real-world
      applications on the other, including perspectives on the supporting
      infrastructure and middleware.

      The main objective of this symposium is to foster the exchange of
      ideas and experience among researchers and practitioners working on
      theoretical and application-oriented issues of agent technology,
      covering both the micro and macro aspects of agent design and the
      transition from drawing boards and partly idealised models, over
      modeling tools and frameworks, to deployment, configuration and
      maintenance of implementations.

      Of particular relevance to the symposium is work that reports insights
      gathered and lessons learnt when applying specific agent theories or
      architectures to application problems, and that discusses methods,
      methodologies, and other tools, that can help system designers to
      successfully accomplish the mapping between available agent technology
      on the one hand, and application problems on the other.

      Topics of interest therefore include:

      Conceptual and theoretical foundations
      Agent languages and architectures
      Learning and adaptability
      Communication, coordination and collaboration
      Social issues in agent societies
      Safety, security, and responsibility
      Single vs. multi-agent systems
      Agents vs. Middleware (e.g. CORBA, Grid Computing, ...)
      Development and engineering methodologies
      User interfaces and usability
      Testbeds and evaluations

      For details on how to prepare the draft final paper, see the
      guidelines for the main EMCSR conference published on the EMCSR web
      server (<URL:http://www.ai.univie.ac.at/emcsr/>). Draft Final Papers
      must not exceed 10 single-spaced A4 pages (maximum 43 lines, max. line
      length 160 mm, 12 point), in English. They have to contain the final
      text to be submitted, including graphs and pictures. However, these
      need not be of reproducible quality. They must carry the title,
      author(s) name(s), and affiliation (including. e-mail address, if possible)
      in this order, and must include an abstract.

      Please notice that for this particular symposium submission in
      ELECTRONIC FORMAT is STRONGLY PREFERRED, either via e-mail as
      attachment, or by anonymous FTP upload WITH JOINT NOTIFICATION by
      e-mail; otherwise send FOUR hard copies of the draft final paper.

      Address your submission to:

      Paolo Petta
      Austrian Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence
      Schottengasse 3
      A 1010 Vienna, Austria, EU

      e-mail: paolo@...

      FTP: upload your papers to <URL:ftp://ftp.ai.univie.ac.at/incoming/>
      please start the name of the uploaded file with
      "at2ai3_" and the first author name, e.g.: "at2ai3_petta.zip"
      FTP-uploads MUST BE accompanied by an e-mail notification
      to paolo@...

      Accepted Papers:

      Authors of accepted papers will be notified by December 14, 2001; the
      list will also be published on the AT2AI-3 web site. After the event,
      a second round of more extensive reviews is planned which is to lead
      to the publication of extended versions of selected contributions in
      an edited collection.

      Important dates:

      Paper submission deadline: November 16, 2001
      Notification of acceptance: December 14, 2001
      Camera-ready copies due: January 18, 2002
