Call For Papers

Opportunities and Perils for Computational Virtual Organizations
November 15-17
AAAI Symposium
Arlington, Virginia

Call for papers:

There is a strong ongoing trend for traditional organizations to adapt to socially networked nature of human population. This trend allows organizations to be transformed from brick and mortar to a more virtual nature. On the automation front, virtual organizations are erected that relieve humans of tedious, routine tasks as well as error prone decisions. Another set of virtual organizations (e.g., first responder systems) provide interface tools for timely and coherent interaction among far flung decision making components. We invite contributions from those involved in conceiving and building computational virtual organizations to share their strides in order to identify pitfalls and underscore successful steps. Papers describing advanced prototypes, systems, tools and techniques and position papers indicating future directions are also encouraged. Papers describing original work are invited in any of the areas listed below. Accepted papers must be presented at the workshop by one of the authors, and it will appear in the proceedings of AAAI 2013 workshop. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and originality. Both full research reports and work-in-progress reports are welcome. High quality papers will be selected for extension and made ready for inclusion in a special issue of the “Lecture Note in Social Networks,” published by Springer.


The following is a partial list of areas of interest. Papers may address one or more of the listed sub-topics, although authors should not feel limited by them. Unlisted but related sub-topics are also acceptable, provided should fit in one of the following main topic areas:
- Theory of Network Computing
- Social intelligence
- Network Processors, Security, Sensor and Protocol
- Self (configuring, healing, optimizing, protecting, organizing, aware) platforms for Network Computing
- Mobile Ad-Hoc Networks
- Virtual organizations
- Adaptation
- Agents argumentation, negotiation and Commitments
- Decision and game theoretic foundations for agreement
- Autonomy
- Automated collaboration and trust negotiation
- Crowdsourcing
- Novel mechanisms and tools for engaging users in data generation tasks
- Social capital, social cohesion and solidarity
- Anthropological Relevance and social capital


CVO 2013 seeks high-quality submissions of full papers limited to 8 pages in length following AAAI 2013 general instructions. All submissions will be rigorously peer reviewed and evaluated on the basis of originality, soundness, significance, presentation, understanding of the state of the art, and overall quality of their technical contribution. To submit your paper (in .PDF, .Doc or .Docx format), please go to our submission website ""(provided by EasyChair) and follow the instructions.
