The MSDM workshop focuses on principled sequential decision-making methods, and applications, to systems of multiple agents. Several multiagent models have emerged for cooperative agents (e.g., MMDP, Dec-POMDP) as well as for self-interested agents (e.g., I-POMDP, POSG), under various assumptions about agents' capabilities to communicate, observe, and influence other agents. The high complexity associated with such models has prompted development of planning and learning techniques that (1) exploit structure in agents' interactions and the problem, (2) find exact and more efficient approximate solutions, and (3) decentralize and distribute computation. Through a tutorial, presentations by authors and distinguished invitees, and discussions, we aim to facilitate collaboration among researchers and practitioners toward advancing MSDM theory and application.

Multiagent sequential decision making comprises (1) problem representation, (2) planning, (3) coordination, and (4) learning, in self-interested as well as cooperative agent systems. The MSDM workshop addresses this full range of aspects. Topics of particular interest include:
* Fundamental modeling challenges (e.g., model specification and model granularity)
* Novel representations, algorithms and complexity results
* Comparisons of algorithms
* Relationships between models and their assumptions
* Decentralized vs. centralized planning approaches
* Online vs. offline planning
* Communication and coordination during execution
* Computational issues involving long decision horizons and large number of agents, states, observations and actions
* (Reinforcement) learning in partially observable multiagent systems
* Cooperative, competitive, and self-interested agents
* Application domains
* Benchmarks and evaluation methodologies
* Standardization of software
* High-level principles in MSDM: past trends and future directions
