      Aim and Scope:
       
      This workshop is dedicated to formal approaches, programming
      languages, tools and techniques that support the development of
      multi-agent systems. LADS'007 aims to address both theoretical and
      practical issues related to developing and deploying multi-agent
      systems and promotes the discussion and exchange of ideas concerning
      concepts, methodologies, techniques and principles that are
      important for multi-agent programming technology, and application in
      areas such as the electronic institutions, semantic web, web
      services, security, grid computing, ambient intelligence, pervasive
      computing, and electronic contracting.
       
      This workshop welcomes submissions of original papers concerning all
      aspects of multi-agent development and deployment. Topics include
      but are not limited to:
       
      - Programming languages for multi-agent systems
      - Extensions of traditional languages for multi-agent programming
      - Semantics for multi-agent programming languages
      - Implementation of social and organisational aspects of MAS
      - Modal and epistemic logics for agent modelling
      - Model checking agents and multi-agent systems
      - Algorithms for multi-agent issues (e.g., coordination, cooperation,
       negotiation, distributed constraint satisfaction)
      - Declarative approaches to engineering agent systems
      - Declarative models of agent beliefs and capabilities
      - Declarative models of bounded rationality
      - Declarative paradigms for the combination of heterogeneous agents
      - Specification and verification logics
      - Logic programming approaches to agent systems
      - Methodologies for MAS analysis and design
      - Agent-oriented requirements analysis and specification
      - Theoretical and practical aspects of multi-agent programming
      - Computational complexity of MAS
      - High-level executable multi-agent specification languages
      - Agent communication in multi-agent programming
      - Implementation of social and organisational aspects of MAS
      - Agent development tools and platforms
      - Generic tools and infrastructures for multi-agent programming
      - Interoperability and standards for MAS
      - Programming of mobile agents
      - Safety and security for mobile MAS deployment
      - Fault tolerance and load balancing for mobile MAS
      - Formal methods for specification and verification of MAS
      - Verification tools for implementations of MAS
      - Experimental analysis of declarative agent technologies
      - Industrial experiences with (declarative) agent technologies
      - Service-oriented multiagent systems
      - Protocol specification and conformance checking
      - Declarative description of contracts and negotiation policies
      - Application areas for multi-agent programming languages
      - Applications using legacy systems
      - Programming MAS for Grid-based applications
      - Programming MAS for the Semantic Web
      - Deployed (industrial-strength) MAS
      - Benchmarks and testbeds for comparing MAS languages and tools
      - Test and debugging tools and techniques for MAS
      - Electronic institutions
