Call For Papers

The 6th International Workshop on Emergent Intelligence on Networked
Agents (WEIN2016)

Workshop at the 15th International Joint Conference on Autonomous
Agents and Multiagent Systems (AAMAS2016)

Singapore, May 9-13, 2016
Date of Workshop: May 9 or 10 (full day workshop), 2016

Workshop Chair:
Satoshi Kurihara (The University of Electro-Communications)

Workshop Organizers:
Hideyuki Nakashima (Future University-Hakodate, Japan)
Akira Namatame (National Defense Academy, Japan)
Satoshi Kurihara (The University of Electro-Communications, Japan)

Scope and Theme:

In this workshop we will discuss about the emergence of
intelligence from large-scale complex networked agents. Our brain
consists of 50 billion neurons and the neuron network causes
emergence of our consciousness and intelligence. And, each human
behavior and large-scale complex human network causes emergence
of society. We can see many emergence phenomena like these among
the real world.

In these cases, not only the dynamics of each neuron or human but
also the "network dynamics" of these are important. The aim of
this workshop is to investigate the role of networked agents in
the emergence of systemic properties, notably emergent
intelligence. Focus is on topics such as network formation among
agents, the feedback of network structures on agentユs dynamics,
network-based collective phenomena, and emergent problem solving
of networked agents.

Up to now, main interest of agent community is the dynamics of
agent itself. But, in the current rapidly growing Internet like
WWW and social media like twitter, facebook, etc., studies about
the complex network are attracting international attention. And
studies about complex network are deeply related to multi agent
community. So, the ultimate target of this workshop is to bridge
between multi agent community and complex system community.

Currently, it seems that research on MAS is still mostly focused
on agents themselves, whereas networks of agents have received
relatively little attention. The rapid development of various
technologies, including those in web intelligence, ubiquitous
computing, sensor networks, and grid computing will, however,
lead to systems consisting of a potentially very large number of
agents. In these situations, the view of each agent is limited to
its local environment, and the efficiency of the system is
significantly affected by the network in which the embedded
agents. Thus, it is important to pay attention not only to agents
themselves, but also to the structure and the dynamics of the
