Workshop description 
Autonomous agents are software entities that are capable of independent action  in open, unpredictable environments. Agents and multi-agent systems  are  models. The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers and  developers from academia and industry in order to discuss current scientific  and technical results on using agents technology for solving complex,  distributed real-world problems.  The workshop welcomes submissions of  original, high-quality papers reporting on models or systems that have  been or  are being implemented.  Experience reports and application demonstrators are particularly welcome.


Specific topics of this workshop include, but are not limited to, the  following:
         - Multi-agent systems for modeling and simulation
         - Agent oriented software design and methodology
         - Performance analysis / modeling of multi-agent systems
         - Task-based agent context and task-oriented agents
         - Multi-agent systems in high-performance processing
         - Agents and multi-agent systems for Grid Computing
         - Recommendation agents for scientific problem solving
         - Distributed knowledge integration and sharing for scientific
         - Agent based resource and service discovery
         - Agents and emergent behavior

Submission of papers:

We invite submissions in the form of:

         - full research papers,
         - short papers (work in progress), system descriptions and software demonstrations.
Papers of up to 8 pages (IEEE conference style), must be submitted electronically through EasyChair. Research papers must contain original research results not submitted and not published elsewhere. 
Authors which want to present and discuss new aspects or a survey of their older research results at the workshop are welcome to submit an informal presentation. Extended abstracts (up to 4 pages) may be submitted for informal

Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their scientific merit and relevance to the Workshop topics.


The papers accepted for presentation will be published in a locally edited  booklet.

Papers accepted and presented at the workshop will be published as a  special issue in the Mathematics and Computer Science Annals of the West University of Timisoara (  Another possibilities of publication will be formulated soon after the workshop.
