      ====================

      Call for Papers
      Special Issue on Agent Communication
      ACM Transactions on Intelligent Systems and Technology

      Agent communication research seeks to address challenges in the
      development of applications involving multiple autonomous and
      heterogeneous agents. Agent communication differs from communication
      as studied in traditional distributed systems in its emphasis of
      high-level abstractions that enable flexible interaction yet support
      verifying compliance. Broad applications include business
      interactions, contracts and compliance, virtual enterprises,
      negotiation, argumentation and decision support, and so on.

      We invite quality submissions that develop new insights, high-level
      abstractions, patterns, languages, formal theories, reasoning, and
      methodologies for communication in multiagent systems.

      Broad topics include

      Protocols
      Dialogs and argumentation
      Virtual organizations, institutions
      Commitments, norms, and other social concepts
      Trust and deception
      Correctness properties and their verification
      Tying communication with agent design and execution strategies
      Architecture, middleware, patterns, and programming language support
      Standardization of communication primitives
      Application-specific modeling and insights
