in conjunction with
8th International Conference on Web Intelligence, Mining and Semantics - WIMS 2018

DEADLINE for paper submission has been EXTENDED until January 25, 2018

Workshop Description

Software agent technologies reached a certain level of maturity that allows development of applications spanning from lab prototypes to mature real-life systems, in domains that could have not been imagined before. Furthermore, software agent technologies proved their usefulness in synergy with methods of intelligent computing and artificial intelligence.

The aim of the WASA workshop is to contribute to the advancement of technologies and applications of software agents' with a special interest in intelligent computing including, but not limited to: reasoning, semantics, pattern recognition, learning and cognition, etc. The workshop welcomes papers addressing research and experience reports on various applications of software agents. Papers describing finalized research, as well as work-in-progress, are welcome. The topics of the workshop cover, broadly understood, software agent and intelligent technologies connected to applications and experiences in areas like:

  • e-business
  • social networks
  • e-learning
  • grid and cloud computing
  • gaming
  • smart environments
  • e-health
  • multimedia
  • disaster and crisis management
  • virtual organizations
  • simulation
  • energy conservation
  • sustainability and green computing
  • planning and decision making
  • traffic control
  • image and video understanding
  • manufacturing and industrial management

etc. (but this list is not exhaustive).
