KES 2005 Special Invited Sessions on MultiAgent System:
control and dynamic knowledge managment.

Session Chair: Pr. Alain Cardon
Organization: Mickael Camus

The Domain

The field of the complex systems in computer science is nowadays of
great interest and the most exciting discoveries are yet to be
made. The complexity is a main character in all the living phenomena,
where the behavior is difficult to predict, leading to unpredictable

In applied mathematics, complexity is well studied from chaos and
dynamic systems. But computer science also focus researches about
complexity. We are interesting on the behavior of ecosystems,
economical and social systems, turbulence and meteorology, evolving of
large towns, consciousness, multi-criteria decision systems... They
are new representations of the real world.

Computer science interests to the simulation of complex systems, and
must interest also to the in-line control of the complex systems. And
for these two case, on have to uses sophisticated techniques, as
massive multiagents systems or the new neural networks. Then, the
complexity of the modeled real systems is transposed in the computer
systems ones, where one have to manage the problems of architecture,
control, re-organization, adaptativity, evolution… We are on the way
of the artificial life.

The session must study the complex system as simulation tools of the
real ones about the best conformity, and must also studied the
complexity in software architectures themselves, in the control of
parallel process flow, the control of evolving organization of
software components, the control of the adaptivity to the context.

Fundamental topics of the session

General topics

Complex systems : specific computational characters
Adaptive systems : from reaction to self-adaptativity
hinking systems : artificial consciousness

Characters of the complexity

self organization : organization managed by its own characters
emergence : property of selection of the best characters at the good time
computational complexity : cost of the computation and reduction
massive multiagent systems : platforms, agentification methods, control.

Application domains of the session

Biological ecosystems with representation and prediction.
Artificial life using robots.
Decision system for the economics or the military operations.
Adaptive software.


Each paper submitted will be reviewed by at least two referees in the
relevant areas. Accepted papers, after revision according to the
referee comments, will be included in the conference proceedings,
which will be published by Springer-Verlag in Lecture Notes in AI as
part of the LNCS/LNAI series. At least one author of accepted papers
must register and present the paper at the conference.

Please note that papers should be no longer than seven pages in LNCS
format. Papers longer than this will be subject to an additional page
charge. All oral and poster papers must be presented by one of the
authors who must register and pay fees.

Extended versions of selected papers will be considered for
publication in the KES Journal (International Journal of
Knowledge-Based and Intelligent Engineering Systems) published by IOS

Instruction for Authors

Only electronic copies of the papers in Microsoft Word, or PDF format
are acceptable for review purposes and must be sent to the session
chair, Mickael Camus (via email).

Please refer to the Springer-Verlag web site for directions on the
Final Paper Format which must be strictly followed for all papers that
are to appear in the proceedings.
