This fifth edition continues the tradition of the AOSE
Technical Forum Group (TFG) started back in 2004. The scope of this Technical
Forum (TF) is to work on agent-oriented software engineering (AOSE) main
challenges and its specific aim is renewing and strengthening the cohesion of
the AOSE community that participated in the previous meetings. As a tangible
result of these events, several members of this TFG now share common research
activities and projects originated from the discussions they had during the
meetings (or after them).
The initial work plan for this half day meeting mainly
includes topics proposed by TFG supporters and a few panels on relevant research
The topics of interest are (but are not limited to):
Agent modelling languages;
Methodologies for agent-oriented analysis and design;
Testing techniques for Multi-agent systems;
Patterns, aspects and re-use approaches for agent-oriented software;
Model-driven architecture (MDA) for MAS;
Refinement and synthesis techniques for agent-based specifications;
Verification and validation techniques for agent-based systems;
Software development environments and CASE tools for AOSE;
Formal methods for agent-oriented systems, including specification and
Model checking for agent-oriented systems;
Engineering large-scale agent systems;
Multi-agent systems and software product lines;
Experiences and real applications with agents;
Market and other economic models in agent systems engineering;
Practical coordination and cooperation frameworks for agent systems;
Standardisation approaches in AOSE;
Trends in software engineering and AOSE (method engineering, model driven
Participants are STRONGLY encouraged to
submit a paper thus allowing other attendees to know, well before the meeting,
the arguments that will be discussed there.
We accept position papers, papers illustrating new researches in the area as
well as any other scientific relevant contribution (also demonstration of
prototypes) about the above listed topics. There will be no formal proceedings.
Therefore published papers are acceptable too (provided that no existing
copyright is infringed).
The format and length of such position papers are open.
Registration for AOSE TF is free.
Unfortunately, there will be no funding for attendants in this edition. We would
like to invite all those who are interested in participating remotely to submit
paper about the above mentioned topics. Papers should be sent to:
and they will be published on the AOSE TFG web page.
The deadline for contributions related to
talks to be held during the meeting is
ACCEPTED UP TO DECEMBER, 7th
while contributions just for publication in the website could be sent even after
the event, perhaps to clarify an opinion issued during the meeting.
