WOA 2022
23rd edition of the Workshop “From Objects to Agents” (WOA)
Genova, Italy, 1-3 September 2022


Call for Papers

After the first successful 22 editions in Parma, Modena, Milano, Villasimius, Torino, Camerino, Catania, Genova, Palermo, Parma, Rimini, Rende, Milano, Torino, Catania, Napoli, Catania, Scilla, Palermo, Parma, Bologna (online) and Bologna, the 23rd edition of the Workshop “From Objects to Agents” (WOA) will be hosted by the University of Genova from September 1 to 3, 2022, in the beautiful location of Casa Paganini - InfoMus, in the recently restored monumental building of S.Maria delle Grazie La Nuova.

Following the significant interest that all facets of Artificial Intelligence (AI) have been recently obtaining, the topic for WOA 2022 is

Emotional and Believable Human-Agent Interaction

WOA 2022 will bring together researchers to discuss those issues and to suggest future research questions and perspectives laying at the intersection among Emotional and Believable agents and MAS, and Human-Agent Interaction. Therefore, the workshop aims at working as an interdisciplinary hub for thinkers, students, researchers, and developers who wish to understand and exploit the impact and potential of agent- and MAS-based techniques, when combined with Human-Agent Interactions.

Topics of Interest:
Agents theory and technology related to AI or Believable Human-Agent Interaction
Software engineering techniques for agents involving Believable Human-Agent Interaction
Languages and tools for agent-oriented and Believable Human-Agent Interaction intelligent systems
Agent-oriented architectures for Believable Human-Agent Interaction
eXplainable and ethical AI in agent-oriented models, architectures, or systems to support Believable Human-Agent Interaction
Trust, security, and privacy in the design and development of agents capable of a Believable Human-Agent Interaction

Moreover, the following topics are also more than welcome:
Adaptive, animated, and personality-driven agents
Agent-oriented software engineering
Agent-based languages and platforms
Agent-oriented methods and development tools
Agents and objects
Agents and sensor networks
Agent-based modelling and simulation
Coordination, cooperation and communication for agents
Formal models for agents and MAS
Hardware and software infrastructures for agents and multi-agent systems
Industrial applications of agents and MAS
Learning, planning and reasoning for agents
Security, trust and responsibility in MAS
Software agents and the Web
Standards and interoperability for agents and MAS
Theoretical, conceptual and ontological basis of agents and MAS
along with any other MAS-related topic.
