Post-proceedings of the 13th Agent-Oriented Software Engineering Workshop Special workshop theme: to explore, from an agent-based perspective, foundations, models, methods, architectures, and tools for engineering future software-intensive IT ecosystems
This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-proceedings of the 13th Agent-Oriented Software Engineering (AOSE) workshop, held at the 11th International Conference on Autonomous Agents and Multiagent Systems, AAMAS 2012, in Valencia, Spain, in June 2012.
This volume presents 9 thoroughly revised papers selected from 24 submissions as well as two invited articles by leading researchers in the field. The papers cover a broad range of topics related to software engineering of agent-based systems, with particular attention to the integration of concepts and techniques from multi-agent systems with recent programming languages, platforms, and established software engineering methodologies.
