ESAS workshop series aims at garnering the synergy of both technologies by taking up
both the semantic web aspect and the agent aspect of the common research issue. Topics
of interest span a wide spectrum of both theory and practice of agent architectures, software agents, mobile agents, autonomous semantic agents, context-aware intelligent agents, agents as semantic web services, multi-agent systems, agent communities, cooperation and goal seeking through sharing policy and ontology, safety & security in systems, other QoS issues, and so on.
We envisage a strong undercurrent of intelligent software agents, mobile agents, and MAS running through this workshop. Side by side with the use of semantic Web technologies, there are several foci of interest:
Software Agents, Mobile Agents, and MAS: issues relating to architecture, implementation, coordination, service levels, etc. of semantic or otherwise agents.
Agent, MAS and Semantic Web Technologies: concomitant utilization of specific technologies in agent, MAS, and semantic Web implementations; semantic agent communities & applications; case studies of best-practice MAS applications; projects in the making;
Ontology for Agents and MAS: agent cooperation ontology; ontology of workflow in MAS; ontologies for distributed applications; sharing and semantic interoperability; discovery and operations on ontologies;
Platforms for agent and MAS implementation: languages, frameworks, tools, integrated development environments and software engineering practices supporting semantic or otherwise software agent & MAS architectures, coordination, trust & security mechanisms, description, discovery and composition of agent-based services.
Other subjects of relevance in software agents, mobile agents, agent-based and multi-agent systems.
