The 9th Annual International Workshop "Engineering Societies in the Agents World" (ESAW 08)
will be held at the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Mines de Saint-Etienne (ENSM-SE) in Saint-Etienne,
France on the 24th, 25th and 26th of September, 2008.
The sequel to successful editions since 2000, ESAW 08 remains committed to the use of the notion of multi-agent system as seed for animated, constructive, and highly inter-disciplinary discussions about technologies, methodologies, and tools for the engineering of complex distributed applications. While the workshop places an emphasis on practical engineering issues and applications, it also welcomes theoretical, philosophical, and empirical contributions, provided that they clearly document their connection to the core applied issues. Prospective papers about new paradigms, theories, models are also appreciated.
The ESAW post-proceedings are typically published by Springer as a volume of the LNAI series.

The next workshop edition ESAW 2009 will be held at Utrecht University, The Netherlands on the 18th, 19th, and 20th of November 2009
