*******************************   Call for Papers *************************
  First International Workshop on Agent Technology and Autonomic Computing
                 (ATAC'2006) Erfurt, Germany, September 18-21, 2006
         within Net.ObjectDays 2006; http://www.netobjectdays.org


Agent technology is one of the most prominent and attractive 
technologies in computer science at the beginning of the new 
millenium. It is not only a promising technology, but it is also 
emerging as a new way of thinking : a conceptual paradigm for 
analyzing problems and for designing systems, for dealing with 
complexity, distribution, and interactivity while providing a new 
perspective on computing and intelligence. Recently, an interest 
has been witnessed in computing community to autonomic computing. 
Inspired by the functioning of the human nervous systems, 
autonomic computing is to design and build computing systems that 
posses inherent self-managing capabilities. While autonomic computing 
is a quite new revolutionary move to the discipline of computing and 
so far a holistic solution has not yet appeared, we think that agent 
technology is already available for being integrated into the 
framework of autonomic computing. We look primarily in this workshop 
for ideas that foster the link between agent technology and autonomic 
computing. Theoretical as well as practical aspects are welcome. The 
organisers welcome participation and contributions from those working 
or interested in the intersection of agent technology and autonomic 


The topics of interest for ATAC'06 include, but are not limited to :
Agents for autonomic systems
Agents in self-healing
Agents in self-optimization
Agents in self-cofiguration
Agents in self-protection
Agent computing versus autonomic computing
Applications domains of agent technology and autonomic computing


Authors should submit their contributions electronically in PDF format to
Walid.Chainbi at lycos.com by the deadline given below in the list of 
important dates. The contributions should be named as 
contact-author-surname.pdf (example: gregory.pdf). Papers should be 
written in english with a maximum of 12 pages. Accepted papers will 
be published in a workshop note and distributed among participants 
during the workshop.
Depending on the quality of contributions, we are planning to publish 
a post-proceedings of the papers either as a book or a aspecial issue 
of an international journal.
