Dear colleagues,

Hereby we invite you to propose your work for consideration towards
inclusion in an edited book. Please feel free to distribute this Call for
Papers to your colleagues and professional contacts.

Call for Chapter Contributions:

Semantic Agent Systems: Foundations and Applications
Edited Book by Springer-Verlag

Integrating agent and semantic Web technologies in order to extend the
ability of programs have long been hailed as the most efficient way to
serve users. The idea is to significantly affect performance of application
software employing cooperating multi-agent systems through the use of
semantic Web services and domain ontologies. The Semantic Web has matured
to a great extent with ontology-based applications being built by several
major enterprises. However, research and development concerned with the
integration of the semantic Web and software agent technologies are moving
at a snail's pace. To bring our contribution, we initiated around November
2005, the series of IEEE International Workshops on Engineering Semantic
Agent Systems in conjunction with the 30th International Computer Software
and Applications Conference (COMPSAC 2006) in Chicago, Illinois, USA. After
four annual workshops, preparing to announce the fifth, and two journal
special issues on this theme, we are soliciting contributions from research
experts and practitioners for an edited volume in the series "Studies in
Computational Intelligence" (http://www.springer.com/series/7092) by

Possible topics for the special issue include:

- Principles and methodologies for semantic agent systems;
- Foundations, theories and models of semantic agent systems;
- Semantic-based autonomous and multi-agent architectures;
- Agent communication languages and protocols with semantics;
- Frameworks and environments for semantic agents systems;
- Ontology development (modeling, versioning, repository) for agent systems;
- Ontology management (mapping, merging, alignment) for agents systems;
- Semantic technologies, decision making, communications for agent systems;
- Languages, logics, tools and methodologies for semantic agent systems;
- Semantics related agent-oriented software engineering;
- Semantic agents systems for collaboration and cooperation;
- Semantic agent systems for (including but not limited to): 1.)
Mission-critical systems, enterprise information systems, social networks,
2.) E-government, e-commerce, e-business, e-health, life sciences, 3.)
Multimedia, man-machine interfaces of software application systems; 4.)
Semantic robotics: design, implementation, and application case studies.
- Information visualization for agent systems with semantic Web techniques;
- Applications of semantic agents systems with pertinent lessons learned.

Proposal submission:

We welcome original high quality contributions on the theme of Semantic
Agent Systems along the aspects of foundation, theory, models, engineering,
and applications. Substantially revised and extended versions of papers
presented at conferences and workshops are also encouraged provided that
the new content exceeds 50% of the paper. A 2-page chapter proposal may be
uploaded to the submission site
(https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/SASFA2010/) as soon as possible.
Authors will be notified of the outcome within two weeks. Draft and final
chapter proposals of about twenty pages must conform to Springer's
Instructions for Authors:


Important Dates:

- 2-Page Proposal: Immediate
- Guest Editors' Feedback: Within two weeks
- Chapter Submission Deadline: March 1, 2010
- Completion of First-Round Reviews: April 10, 2010
- Revised Chapters Due: April 30, 2010
- Final Publication Materials Due: May 20, 2010
