                    Cross-conference sessions at
          2002 International Conference on Internet Computing
       & 2002 International Conference on Artificial Intelligence
     
                            June 24-27, 2002
                   Monte-Carlo Resort, Las-Vegas, USA

    TOPICS:
    Regardless of economical situation, efficiency is always a top goal in
    conducting business. Automation can help us to carry out business in a
    fast, low-cost, and effective way with minimal human involvement. AGENT
    technology is one of the most promising tools to implement BUSINESS
    AUTOMATION autonomously, intelligently, and efficiently. The goals of
    these sessions are to gather academic as well as industrial researchers to
    exchange new ideas and experiences, to initialize new connections toward
    future cooperation or to strengthen existing collaborations.

    Based on the last year event we plan to have two tracks at two
    conferences: IC-AI-2002 and IC-IC-2002

    (*) Track-A: (at IC-IC-2002) " Internet Agents for Business Automation"
    (*) Track-B: (at IC-AI-2002) " Intelligent Agents for Business Automation"

    We welcome papers on frameworks, architectures, protocols, algorithms,
    design, evaluation (performance, QoS, security), and implementation
    techniques for business agent-based systems. Technical issues to be
    addressed include, but are not limited to:

    Agent-based Data Retrieval for Business Automation
    Agent-based Automatic Demand/Supply Formation for Business Automation
    Agent-based Demand/Supply Matching for Business Automation
    Agent-based Transaction Formation for Business Automation
    Agent-based Transaction Implementation for Business Automation
    Agent-based Workflow Management for Business Automation

    Personal Agents
    Virtual Agent-based Office
    Agent Coordination for Cooperative Works
    Agent Security and Authentication
    Agent Visualization

    AI Techniques (Neural Networks,Fuzzy Logic,Genetic Algorithms,..) for
    Internet Agents
    Agent Communication/Interaction
    Agent Cooperation/Competition
    Agent Negotiation and Learning

    E-Management and E-Control with Agents
    E-Trade and E-Marketplace with Agents
    E-Payment and E-Banking with Agents
    Financial & Investment Agent-Based Applications
    Agent-based Supply Chains
    Agents for Games on the Internet

    Large-Scale E-Business Agent-Based Systems
    Networking Supports for Internet Agents
    Web Intelligent Interface with Agents
    Agents for Database in E-Business
    Wireless Agent-Based Systems
     

    SUBMISSION:
    You are invited to submit draft papers by February 25. A web site will be
    available for paper submission and please zip your file before submitting.
    The length of the Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) will be limited to 7
    IEEE-format pages. Please include: paper title, your names, affiliation,
    address, E-mail, telephone and fax number and a maximum of 5 keywords in
    the first page of your paper.

    PUBLICATION:
    Accepted papers will be published in the INTERNET COMPUTING Conference
    Proceeding and the ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE Conference Proceeding by CSREA
    Press (ISBN) in hard copy. The proceedings will be available at the
    conference site. In addition to the hard copy, it is also planned to
    publish the papers on a CD. Selected papers (with extension and revision)
    will be considered for journal publication. Last year, 8 papers of
    our sessions have been chosen to be published in a special issue of the
    International Journal of E-commerce Research by the Kluwer publisher.

    CONFERENCE EVENTS:
    The last Joint conferences attracted over 1400 computer science
    researchers. It is anticipated that The 2002 International Joint
    conferences will attract about 2000 participants. The 2002 event will be
    composed of 14 (planned) international conferences - attendees will have
    full access to all 14 conferences' sessions and tracks.
    ( a link to each conference's URL is available from
