COIN@IJCAI09
8th International Workshop on Coordination, Organizations,
Institutions, and Norms in Agent Systems

July 11-13, Pasadena, CA, USA.

Web site: http://www.les.inf.puc-rio.br/coin@ijcai09

Overview
--------
In recent years, social and organisational aspects of
agency have become important considerations in MAS
research, especially in applications such as Service-Oriented
Computing, Grid Computing and Ambient Intelligence. In
addition, the MAS requirements for openness, heterogeneity,
and scalability pose new demands on traditional interaction
models in that coordination and control has to be expanded
to consider societal and organisation-centric views. Within
this context, this workshop seeks to provide a forum for
the convergence of AI developments from the complementary
perspectives of coordination, organisations, institutions
and norms.

Topics
------
Relevant topics include, but are no limited to:

* Modeling multi-agent organizations.
* Models and architectures for social agents.
* Coordination in dynamic and emergent agent organizations.
* Organization design and monitoring of regulated MAS.
* Ontologies, methodologies, tools and standards for
regulated MAS.
* Social science background for regulated MAS: Roles,
authority, motivation, social power and other social
relationships and attitudes.
* Languages for norms:expressiveness VS efficiency.
* Agent communities, electronic institutions and virtual
organizations.
* Coordination and interaction conventions, technologies
and artifacts.
* Institutional aspects of peer to peer interactions.
* Issues in regulatory dynamics (creation, evolution, change).
* Issues in regulated MAS implementation.
* Simulation, analysis and verification of regulated MAS.
* Engineering organizations (validation, implementation and
tools for agent organizations).
* Scaling and control issues in agent organizations.
* Norms, institutions and organizations: authority, power,
dependence, sanctions, contracts, trust, reputation as
regulating tools for agents within organizations.
* Application of organizational theory to MAS.
* Organised Adaptation of regulated MAS: protocols and
frameworks.
* Models of norm (law, policy) change: norm revision,
conflict detection, norm updates.
* Simulation, analysis and verification of dynamics of
multi-agent organizations.
* Dynamic, adaptive and emergent organizational structures.
* Practical applications of agent organization systems.

Important Dates
---------------
Deadline for papers submission: March 06, 2009
Notification about submissions: April 17, 2009
Camera ready copy: May 08, 2009

Proceedings and Submission
--------------------------
Proceedings will be available at the workshop. As with
previous COIN workshops, selected, revised and
extended versions of the papers of the 2009 COIN
editions will be published in a single Springer LNCS
volume. The length of each paper, including figures
and references, may not exceed 16 pages. Further
formatting guidelines and instructions on how to
submit a paper may be found at the workshop web page.
