8th Workshop on Applications of Software Agents - WASA 2018 in 
conjunction with

8th International Conference on Web Intelligence, Mining and Semantics - 
WIMS 2018

Novi Sad, Serbia, June 25-27, 2018

Workshop Description
Software agent technologies reached a certain level of maturity that 
allows development of applications spanning from lab prototypes to  
mature real-life systems, in domains that could have not been imagined  
before. Furthermore, software agent technologies proved their usefulness 
in synergy with methods of intelligent computing and artificial 

The aim of the WASA workshop is to contribute to the advancement of 
technologies and applications of software agents' with a special 
interest in intelligent computing including, but not limited to: 
reasoning, semantics, pattern recognition, learning and cognition, etc. 
The workshop welcomes papers addressing research and experience reports 
on various applications of software agents. Papers describing finalized 
research, as well as work-in-progress, are welcome. The topics of the 
workshop cover, broadly understood, software agent and intelligent 
technologies connected to applications and experiences in areas like:
- e-business
- social networks
- e-learning
- grid and cloud computing
- gaming
- smart environments
- e-health
- multimedia
- disaster and crisis management
- virtual organizations
- simulation
- energy conservation
- sustainability and green computing
- planning and decision making
- traffic control
- image and video understanding
- manufacturing and industrial management
etc. (but this list is not exhaustive).
