The AGERE! workshop is aimed at focusing on programming systems, languages and applications based on actors, active/concurrent objects, agents and – more generally – high-level programming paradigms promoting a mindset of decentralized control in solving problems and developing software. The workshop is designed to cover both the theory and the practice of design and programming, bringing together researchers working on models, languages and technologies, and practitioners developing real-world systems and applications.

Call for Papers
The goal of the workshop is to serve as a forum for collecting, discussing, and confronting related research works that typically appear in different communities in the context of (distributed) artificial intelligence, distributed computing, computer programming, language design and software engineering.
The workshop will be organized as a one-day workshop, integrating both:
- a part featuring a mini-conference style, like previous editions, reserving some time slots for the presentation and discussion of those accepted contributions that are meant to be published on the formal proceedings on the ACM DL.
- a part featuring a brainstorming style, more targeted to solicit the discussion of ideas/challenges/new directions, etc. raised by the set of position/work-in-progress papers submitted to the workshop and selected by the PC.
The workshop welcomes three main kinds of contributions:
- Mature contributions: full papers presenting new previously unpublished research in one or more of the topics identified above. They will be published on the ACM Digital Library as an official ACM SIGPLAN publication.
- Position papers and work-in-progress contributions: short papers introducing a contribution (an idea, a viewpoint, an argument, work in progress…) which may be in its initial stage and not fully developed but which is worth being presented given its relevance to the AGERE! topics, to trigger discussions and interactions. They will be included in the informal proceedings.
- Demos: these contributions should be about a technology/system that will be presented and discussed during the event.
- Posters: these contributions are aimed to exploit the event to discuss with other participants about an idea and get feedback for future work. Posters will be presented and discussed during coffee breaks; some topics may be selected for inclusion in the discussion session.
- long papers: up to 10 pages, including references
- short papers and demos: up to 4 pages, excluding references
- posters: authors may send 2-pages extended abstract + poster draft to firstname.lastname@example.org
A special issue on a reference journal will be organized with the extended and revised version of the best papers accepted and presented to the workshop. This special issue follows a previous one published in Science of Computer Programming, collecting best papers from AGERE! 2011 and 2012, and a twin special issue published in Computer Languages, Systems and Structures and in Concurrency and Computation: Practice and Experience, collecting best papers from AGERE! 2013, 2014 and 2015.
Post-Proceedings on Springer LNCS series
Revised selected papers (and additional ones) are going to be published as a post-proceedings in Lecture Notes in Computer Science.
The Easychair system is used to manage the ongoing process (here).
More information about the volume will be available here as soon as it will be available.
