Synasc 2005 - Workshops - AcSys 2005

New submission deadline - July 29, 2005!

ACSys 2005

Workshop on Agents for Complex Systems

in conjunction with

7th International Symposium on
Symbolic and Numeric Algorithms for Scientific Computing
Timisoara, Romania
September 25 - 29, 2005

Workshop description

Autonomous agents are software entities that are capable of independent action in open, unpredictable environments. Agents and multi-agent systems  are currently applied in diverse domains that require complex problem solving models. The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers and  developers from academia and industry in order to discuss current scientific  and technical results on using agents technology for solving complex,  distributed real-world problems. The workshop welcomes submissions of  original, high-quality papers reporting on models or systems that have  been or are being implemented.
Experience reports and application demonstrators are particularly welcome.


Specific topics of this workshop include, but are not limited to, the following:

        - Multi-agent systems for modeling and simulation
        - Agent oriented software design and methodology
        - Performance analysis / modeling of multi-agent systems 
        - Task-based agent context and task-oriented agents
        - Multi-agent systems in high-performance processing
        - Agents and multi-agent systems for Grid Computing
        - Recommendation agents for scientific problem solving 
        - Distributed knowledge integration and sharing for scientific applications 
        - Agent based resource and service discovery
        - Agents and emergent behavior

Submission of papers:

We invite submissions in the form of:

        - full research papers,
        - short papers (work in progress), system descriptions and software demonstrations.

Papers of up to 8 pages  (IEEE style) must be submitted electronically to

Extended abstracts (up to 4 pages) may be submitted for short papers and system presentations.
Only full papers will be considered for publication in post-proceedings.

Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their scientific  merit and relevance to the Workshop topics.


The extended abstracts of the papers accepted for presentation at SYNASC'05 will be available to the participants on a CD at the conference site.

Revised versions of papers presented at SYNASC'05 will further be published by IEEE Press.
