CfP&P: ***UPDATED SUBMISSION and DEADLINE EXTENSION***: Business Agents
The AI-2002 Workshop
Business Agents and the Semantic
held at the AI 2002 (http://www.cs.unb.ca/ai2002/)
May 26, 2002, Calgary,
Workshop home page: http://www.cs.unb.ca/ai2002/BASeWEB.html
Submission information updated and deadline
E-business increasingly uses Web Services
or agents acting on behalf of human buyers and sellers. Such Business Agents can
profit from the machine-interpretable product and service descriptions provided
by the Semantic Web. Cross-fertilized techniques from AI (e.g., Intelligent
Agents) and the Internet (e.g., the Semantic Web) are thus explored by numerous
organizations world-wide, including W3C, DARPA, NRC, IST, and INTAP. Web
ontologies - consisting of taxonomies and/or rules - constitute the centerpiece
of the new AI-Internet synthesis.
This workshop addresses researchers extending Web
techniques by AI or transferring AI techniques to the Web in an attempt to
create intelligent business agents. The current workshop builds on previous
workshops such as http://www.cs.unb.ca/~bspencer/NECAA/ and http://www.mynisus.com/icec/ecrml.html.
All topics related to agents and e-business are welcome.
Topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:
- Semantic Web
approaches and architectures
- Web agents for
producers and consumers
- E-Business setups
in the Semantic Web
- Business agent
management and e-business agents
- Product and
service codes/registries (e.g., UNSPSC/UDDI)
- Description logics
and Web ontologies (e.g., DAML+OIL, OWL)
- Extended Horn
logics and rule markup techniques (e.g., RuleML)
- Application areas
for rules (e.g., P3P, XACML, ebXML, DRM, etc.)
- Belief logics and
planning for multiple agents
bargaining, auctions, and trust
- Inference engines:
deduction and induction
deduction for the Semantic Web
- Natural language
interfaces for business agents
- Lessons learned
from implemented systems
The workshop will consist of some short introductory
remarks by the organizers and then mostly of presentations of submitted works,
followed by an open discussion session, where the state of the field, current
problems and new directions will be examined. Recommendations concerning
relevant emerging Web standards will be considered.
Participation in this workshop is by invitation only and
invitees must be registered for the AI-2002 conference. Also attendance is
limited. Therefore, in case that a selection becomes necessary, we ask
researchers that just want to attend the workshop without contributing a paper
to send a short email to the
organizing committee expressing their particular interest in the workshop.
Researchers interested in contributing a paper should
send it to the
organizing committee (in PDF format ONLY), up to 8 pages. Papers may already
be prepared in one of the http://authors.elsevier.com/JournalDetail.html?PubID=621289&dc=QG2.
will be reviewed by the organization committee (and some additional referees)
and all papers of sufficient quality will be included into the workshop notes
(and their authors invited to the workshop, of course). Out of these papers
several will be selected for presentation at the workshop. The main criteria of
this selection will be to cover a broad variety of concepts and the contribution
to the goals stated above. To facilitate a lively and interesting discussion, we
will try to make all the papers available to the participants of the workshop
before the workshop takes place.
Besides online and conventional proceedings as well as a
journal issue partially based on resubmitted papers, the workshop results will
be immediately made available to researchers working on emerging Web standards
such as http://www.daml.org/language/ and http://www.dfki.uni-kl.de/ruleml/. A special issue of the
journal http://www.elsevier.com/locate/ecra is being prepared for the resubmitted papers from
