                         CALL FOR PAPER

    AOMIP: AOse Methodologies, Infrastructures and Processes
        Track of the 25th Edition ACM Symposium on Applied Computing
Sierre, Switzerland, March 22 -26, 2010




The aim of this track is the deeper investigations of Agent-Oriented  
Software Engineering (AOSE) methodologies, infrastructures and  
processes. The need of engineering new sorts of complex computational  
systems (like for example self-* systems) for new kinds of application  
scenarios (like pervasive systems) calls for new SE methodologies,  
frameworks, infrastructures, and processes. Agent-oriented systems are  
the most likely candidate to work as the sources for new metaphors,  
abstractions, technologies, and methods for the engineering of complex  
In this track we aim at discussing all the elements that influence the  
construction of complex computational systems as agent-oriented ones,  
by promoting the interplay between researchers in AOSE methodologies,  
agent-oriented frameworks and infrastructures, and AOSE processes,  
thus encouraging the development of the very notion of AOSE towards  
the most general and widest acceptation of the term.

The list of most relevant topics includes, but it is not limited to:

* Agent-Oriented Software Engineering
* Methodologies for agent-oriented analysis and design
* Infrastructures for multi-agent systems
* Design of software development processes
* Situational Method Engineering techniques for AOSE design processes
* Relationships between MAS meta-models and their relative AOSE  
* Relationships between AOSE processes and the other traditional  
processes (e.g. OO)
* Relationship between AOSE methodologies and Infrastructures processes
* Meta-modelling techniques
* Software development process models
* Fragment definitions and descriptions
* Integration of agent-oriented methodologies, infrastructures and  
* Approaches for AOSE methodologies: design patterns, components, and  
* Supporting tools for AOSE methodologies/processes construction and  
* Standardisation for AOSE methodologies and processes
* Self-* approaches in AOSE methodologies and processes

Important Dates:
Sept. 15, 2009: Paper submissions
Oct. 19, 2009: Author notification
Nov. 2, 2009: Camera-Ready Copy

Paper Publication:
Authors are invited to submit original and unpublished papers. All  
papers will be fully refereed and undergo a blind review process by at  
least three referees. The conference proceedings will be published by  
ACM. Hence, all accepted papers should be submitted in ACM 2-column  
camera-ready format for publication in the symposium proceedings.  
Authors are allowed up to 8 pages according to the template, but more  
than 5 pages in the camera ready will be charged with 80USD per extra  
page. Paper submission should be in electronic format, via the  
website: eCMS sitehttp://sac.cs.iupui.edu/SAC2010/
