OVERVIEW

Adaptive and learning agents, particularly those interacting with each other in a multi-agent setting, are becoming increasingly prominent as the size and complexity of real-world systems grows. How to adaptively control, coordinate and optimize such systems is an emerging multi-disciplinary research area at the intersection of Computer Science, Control Theory, Economics, and Biology. The ALA workshop will focus on agents and multi-agent systems which employ learning or adaptation.

The goal of this workshop is to increase awareness of and interest in adaptive agent research, encourage collaboration and give a representative overview of current research in the area of adaptive and learning agents and multi-agent systems. It aims at bringing together not only scientists from different areas of computer science but also from different fields studying similar concepts (e.g., game theory, bio-inspired control, mechanism design).

This workshop will focus on all aspects of adaptive and learning agents and multi-agent systems with a particular emphasis on how to modify established learning techniques and/or create new learning paradigms to address the many challenges presented by complex real-world problems.
The topics of interest include but are not limited to:

* Novel combinations of reinforcement and supervised learning approaches
* Integrated learning approaches using reasoning modules like negotiation, trust, coordination, etc.
* Supervised and semi-supervised multi-agent learning
* Reinforcement learning in multi-agent systems
* Novel deep learning approaches for adaptive single and multi-agents systems
* Human-in-the-loop learning systems
* Planning and Reasoning (single and multi-agent)
* Distributed learning
* Adaptation and learning in dynamic environments
* Evolution and Co-evolution of agents in complex multi-agent environments
* Cooperative exploration
* Learning to cooperate and collaborate
* Learning trust and reputation
* Communication restrictions and their impact on multi-agent coordination
* Design of reward structure and fitness measures for coordination
* Scaling learning techniques to large systems of agents
* Emergent behavior in adaptive multi-agent systems
* Game theoretical analysis of adaptive multi-agent systems
* Neuro-control for adaptation in multi-agent systems
* Bio-inspired multi-agent systems
* Adaptive and learning agents for multi-objective decision making
* Multiple objectives in (multi-)agent systems
* Applications of adaptive agents, learning agents, and multi-agent systems to real world complex systems

In addition to these topics, this year we are particularly interested in exploring negative results that can serve as guidelines for early-stage researchers in the field of adaptive and learning single/multi-agent systems.

SUBMISSION DETAILS

Papers can be submitted through EasyChair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ala2021

We invite submission of original work, up to 8 pages in length (excluding references) in the ACM proceedings format (i.e. following the AAMAS formatting instructions). This includes work that has been accepted as a poster/extended abstract at the AAMAS 2021 conference. Additionally, we welcome submission of preliminary results, i.e. work-in-progress, as well as visionary outlook papers that lay out directions for future research in a specific area, both up to 6 pages in length, although shorter papers are very much welcome, and will not be judged differently. Finally, we also accept recently published journal papers in the form of a 2 page abstract.

All submissions will be peer-reviewed (single-blind). Accepted work will be allocated time for poster and possibly oral presentation during the workshop. Extended versions of all original contributions at ALA 2021 will be eligible for inclusion in a special issue of the Springer journal Neural Computing and Applications (Impact Factor 4.774). Deadline for submitting extended papers: September 15, 2021.

We look forward to receiving your submissions,
