colleagues and students
Final CFP; extended deadline is March 31st.

4th IEEE International Workshop on Engineering Semantic Agent Systems
(ESAS 2009), 20 July 2009 to 24 July 2009 Seattle, WA, USA.

Main theme of the workshop is Applying Semantic Technologies in
Research and Development of Ontology-Enabled Multi-Agent Systems.
Semantic Web technology topics are welcome.
Researchers and practitioners  working on the following are especially
encouraged to submit papers: realization of multi-agent systems
through semantic web technology, ontology-based agent applications,
distributed control and processing applications, security & trust,
interoperability, service levels and quality issues in such systems.
Enterprises and research centers developing ontologies, languages,
integrated development environments, tools, and middleware. Other
relevant topics in semantic Web and multi-agent systems are welcome.
This one-day workshop will take place IN CONJUNCTION WITH COMPSAC

The deadline has been extended to 31st March 2009 (final).

Original research papers will be considered. All submitted papers will
be reviewed by the large international program committee considering
originality, significance, correctness, presentation, and relevance.
We also encourage authors to present position papers on practical
studies and experiments, critiques of existing work, emerging issues,
and novel ideas under development.

Papers must be submitted electronically via the ESAS2009 Submission
Page (URL: http://rs.cs.iastate.edu/COMPSAC2009Workshops/ESAS2009/).
Manuscripts will be limited to six pages for regular/invited paper,
