Objects and agents are abstractions that exhibit Points of similarity, but the development of multi-agent systems (MASs) poses other challenges to Software Engineering since software agents are inherently more complex entities. In addition, a large MAS needs to satisfy multiple stringent requirements such as reliability, trustability, security, interoperability, scalability, reusability, and maintainability. This workshop brings together researchers and practitioners to discuss the current state of the art and the future research directions in software engineering for large-scale MASs. A particular interest is to understand those issues in the agent technology that make it difficult and/or improve the production of complex distributed systems.
