*The submission deadline has been *EXTENDED* to *March 31st, 2021*

*19th Adaptive Computing (and Agents) for Enhanced Collaboration (ACEC)*

Track at IEEE WETICE 2021 

Bayonne, France, 23-25 June 2021


Call for Papers

*Aims and Scope*

Over its 18 years of existence, ACEC has focused on works that 
explore the adaptability, autonomy and intelligence of software agents 
for the collaboration across the enterprise. In 2021, organizers would 
like to continue to explore the research on agent-based computing, but 
they would also welcome works that leverage advanced adaptive 
techniques, non necessarily based on software agents. In addition to 
the traditional domain areas, i.e., Computer Supported Collaborative 
Work, Workflow and Supply Chain Management, Automation in Virtual 
Enterprises, and Automated Distributed Service Composition, ACEC is also 
interested in new adaptive techniques, e.g., Cloud Computing, 
Crowd-Sourcing, and Social Networking.

In addition to traditional papers, the forthcoming 19th episode of ACEC 
welcomes papers from two focus areas:

* Adaptive and Agent-based Services
* Adaptive Techniques for Organizational/Enterprise Use of Emerging
Web Paradigms (Cloud, Crowd-sourcing, Mobile Apps)

Such two themes represent important areas where software agents can 
leverage their distributed nature, along with their proactive and 
autonomous characteristics, to provide solutions to complex problems, 
which are difficult to solve using traditional/existing technologies.

*Topics of Interest*

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Adaptive and/or agent-mediated workflow, supply chain, and
virtual enterprises
* Methodologies, languages and tools to support agent collaboration
* Agent architectures and infrastructures for dynamic collaboration
* Adaptive and/or Agent-based service architectures and infrastructures
* Service Oriented Architectures (SOAs) based on agents
* Services for dynamic agent collaboration
* Agent-to-Human service interactions
* Autonomous, Adaptive and/or Agent-mediated service integration
* Organizational and enterprise systems that leverage the Web 2.0
* Adaptive and Agent-mediated cloud environments

*Important Dates*

* Paper submission: *March 31st, 2021*
* Notification: *April 25th, 2021*
* Camera ready: *May 15, 2021 *
* Conference: *23-25 June 2021*

*Paper Submission*

Papers should contain original contributions (not published or submitted 
elsewhere) and references to related state-of-the art work. Please 
submit your papers in PDF or PS format.

Papers up to 6 pages (including figures, tables and references) can be 
submitted. Papers should follow the IEEE format, which is single-spaced, 
two columns, 10pt Times/Roman font. Papers should include a title, the 
name and affiliation of each author, an abstract of up to 150 words and 
no more than eight keywords. All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed 
by a minimum of three program committee members. The accepted papers 
will be published in the post-conference proceedings (to be published by 
the IEEE Computer Society Press).

Authors of accepted papers must present their papers at the 
conference. At least one author for each accepted paper should register 
and attend WETICE 2021 to have the paper published in the proceedings.

The paper submission procedure is carried out using the EasyChair 
conference management system:
