Subject & Motivation
Since the early 1990s, multi-agent system researchers have developed a large body of knowledge on the foundations and engineering principles for designing and developing agent-based systems. The 12 past editions of the agent-oriented software engineering workshop (AOSE) had a key role in this endeavor. For 2012, the workshop organizers and the steering committee propose to organize an edition of AOSE workshop aimed at exploring the new role emerging of agent-oriented software engineering as a bridge from the now consolidated agent oriented programming languages and platforms, to recent systems modelling paradigms like self-*, autonomic systems, and systems of systems (SoS). Thus, it is our hope to explore in this workshop, from an agent-based perspective, foundations, models, methods, architectures, and tools for engineering future software-intensive IT eco-systems.
The workshop organizers plan to publish accepted papers in a volume of the Lecture Notes for Computer Science series.
