FYI. Concurrent engineering is a business problem too.    (01)

>Dear collegues,
>Please find below the Call for Papers. Deadline for paper submissions is
>Friday, February, the 28-th, 2003.
>ISPE/CE2003 Conference and Exhibition
>Carlton Madeira Hotel - Madeira Island, Portugal
>26 - 30 JULY, 2003
>Invited Session on:
>Automated Knowledge and Service Sharing
>in Agent-Enabled Concurrent Engineering
>Call for Papers
>Concurrent Engineering (CE) is widely known as an effective product
>development approach. Its major objective is to reduce the system/product
>development time and effort through a better integration of activities and
>processes. As defined by the US Institute for Defense Analyses (IDA), CE is
>the systematic approach to the integrated, concurrent design of products
>and related processes, including manufacturing and support throughout the
>whole product life cycle from conception to disposal.
>CE methodology becomes even more attractive today and in the future when
>the procedures and the technologies of design and manufacturing become more
>globalized, standardized, dynamic and flexible. The challenge for the
>future generation of CE methodologies and infrastructures is the provision
>of the solutions for automated rational interoperation among independent
>human and artificial team-players in open organizations. The appearance of
>virtual enterprises, consortia as temporary coalitions in design and
>manufacturing make CE activities and processes globally dispersed
>organizationally and geographically. Another big task for CE methodology is
>to properly and effectively guide the assembly of a design or a production
>process from matching distributed service components. The services are
>evidently provided by independent parties and possess varying availability
>and price over time. The facet of reputation and trust among the members of
>these open dynamic constellations of economically rational agents is of
>extreme importance as well.
>The agent paradigm has proved its capability to provide successful
>solutions for the application areas where autonomous, loosely-coupled,
>heterogeneous, and distributed systems or players need to rationally
>interoperate in order to achieve a common goal. Ontologies are recognized
>as shared common specifications of the concepts used for interoperation in
>open heterogeneous systems of autonomous rational agents. It is topical
>that both Agents and Ontologies are central to the rapidly emerging
>Semantic Web. Their combined use will enable the sharing of heterogeneous,
>autonomous knowledge on services, service providers, service capabilities
>in a scalable, adaptable and extensible manner in frame of the Semantic Web
>of Services.
>The focus of CE'2003 is "The vision for the future generation". Following
>this, we solicit research and profound visionary papers providing for
>better understanding of and forming the emerging landscape of
>(semi-)automated knowledge sharing models, methodologies, solutions and
>infrastructures in agent-enabled CE.
>The scope of the session is formed of, but not limited to, the following
>- Models, methodologies and solutions supporting the semi-automation of
>knowledge sharing in open CE organizations
>- Ontology based semantic interoperation among agents in open CE architectures
>- Modelling and semantics of life cycles in CE
>- Automated negotiation, argumentation and reaching consensus among
>team-players in the processes of CE
>- Dynamic CE process planning execution and control by coalitions of
>interoperating agents
>- Semantic Web Services as an enabling technology for agent-based CE
>- Dynamic reputation assessment, trust and coalition formation among agents
>in CE domain
>Submissions and Publication
>Only full paper submissions will be accepted to CE2003, subject to the
>international scientific rules for review. Only electronic submissions will
>be accepted to the Session. Please submit the PDF version of your
>manuscript to one of the Session co-chairs:

>Proceedings will be published as an ISBN numbered book with accompanying CD
>by A.A. Balkema Publishers (http://balkema.ima.nl/) and will be available
>at the conference.
