14th Adaptive Computing (and Agents) for Enhanced Collaboration (ACEC) @ 
June 13 - 16, 2016 Paris, France

*** Overview ***

The autonomy and intelligence of software agents have greatly enhanced 
automation in many operational domains. A major benefit of using agents 
is the ability to assist in the collaboration among humans and software 
mechanisms, alike. Agent-enacted collaboration can be extremely helpful 
in areas such as Computer Supported Collaborative Work, Workflow and 
Supply Chain Management, Automation in Virtual Enterprises, and 
Automated Distributed Component Composition.

The forthcoming 14th episode of the Agent-based Computing for Enterprise 
Collaboration (ACEC) will concentrate on two main themes:

# Adaptive and Agent-based Services

# Agent-based Techniques for Organizational/Enterprise Use of Emerging 
Web Paradigms (Cloud, Crowd-Sourcing, Mobile Apps)

These two themes represent important areas where software agents can 
leverage their distributed nature along with their proactive and 
autonomous characteristics to provide solutions for complex problems 
which are difficult to address using traditional/existing technologies. 
With the popularity and pervasiveness of services in the emerging 
digital world, enterprises must carefully evaluate how to make their 
services openly accessible. Furthermore, it is important for enterprises 
to learn how to exploit the services of others while taking into account 
the unexpected circumstances and changing scenarios, which frequently 
occur in business ecosystems.

In both of these (above given) contexts, software agents can play an 
important role. In this respect, ACEC 2016 intends to bring together 
researchers and practitioners to discuss the key issues, approaches, 
open problems, innovative applications, and trends in this research 
area. We enthusiastically solicit papers that address agent mediation 
and management of services and/or products of on-line businesses.
