                         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 systems.
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 methodologies
* 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 processes
* Approaches for AOSE methodologies: design patterns, components, and 
* Supporting tools for AOSE methodologies/processes construction and enactment
* Standardisation for AOSE methodologies and processes
* Self-* approaches in AOSE methodologies and processes

Important Dates:
Sept. 8, 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Authors are invited to submit original and unpublished papers.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 site 

Organising Committee:
Massimo Cossentino, Italy
Ambra Molesini, Italy
Andrea Omicini, Italy
Valeria Seidita, Italy
