International Workshop on Agent-Based Web Engineering (ABWE-2005)
				July 25 2005
			   Sydney, AUSTRALIA
		   to be held in conjunction with
Fifth International Conference on Web Engineering (ICWE 2005)

Call for papers
Agent-based approaches to systems development are becoming increasingly
popular. The agent paradigm finds application in all stages of software
development, ranging from agent-oriented conceptual modeling and
requirements elicitation, through specification, design, implementation,
testing and maintenance. The rise in the popularity of agent-based
approaches coincided with the advent of the web, and was, in part, driven by
it. Web applications helped emphasize the value proposition of agent-based
software and strong synergy has existed between web engineering and
agent-based approaches ever since.
At this time, agent applications drive web search engines and underpin the
semantic web initiative. Large, complex, distributed applications built on
agent technology are now commonplace on the web. Agent-oriented conceptual
modeling techniques are emerging as popular approaches to web application
modeling, while related languages with agent-oriented (and often
anthropomorphic) language constructs are being used for the design,
specification, verification and validation of web applications. Agent-based
process and workflow modeling (as well as execution) is gaining currency.
Agent-based monitoring, both of run-time code and of the entire application
development life-cycle, is emerging as an interesting proposition.
There is a clear need for a forum that brings together the full spectrum of
agent-based approaches to web engineering, within the context of the premier
international conference on web engineering. This workshop seeks to fill
that role.

Topics of Interest
We invite papers on all aspects relating to agent technology and web
engineering, and their overlap. Topics of interest include, but are not
limited to, the following:
*	Agent based methodologies for web engineering
*	Agent-oriented conceptual modeling for web applications
*	Agent-oriented web process modeling
*	Agent based web information systems
*	Semantic web agents
*	Agent based web services
*	Agent-based web process automation
*	Agent based grid computing
*	Testing, verification and validation of web agent applications

Submitted papers must be written in English and not published or submitted
elsewhere. All submissions will be fully reviewed by two reviewers and will
be judged on the basis of originality, contribution, technical and
presentation quality, and relevance to the workshop. Workshop proceedings
will be published in 2 formats: print and CD-ROM. Print proceedings for the
ICWE workshops will have ISBN numbers. Papers should be in IEEE Computer
Society conference proceedings format. Post workshop publication of
accepted papers is being planned via a journal special issue. Paper
submission is by emailing a PDF file to: [log in to unmask]
