Professor Audun Jøsang (University of Oslo, Norway) will give an invited talk on "Computational Trust with Subjective Logic". He is co-author of one of the first trust modeling systems, Beta Reputation System (BRS).
22 experts in the field form the Program Committee


Trust is important in many kinds of interactions, including direct or computer-mediated human interaction, human-computer interaction and among social agents; it characterizes those elements that are essential in social reliability. It also informs the selection of partners for successful multiagent coordination (for example, in robotics applications). Trust is more than communication that is robust against repudiation or interference. The reliability of information about the status of a trade partner, for example, is only partly dependent on secure communication.

With the growing prevalance of social interaction through electronic means, trust, reputation, privacy and identity become more and more important. Trust is not just a simple, monolithic concept; it is multi-faceted, operating at many levels of interaction, and playing many roles. Another growing trend is the use of reputation mechanisms, and in particular the interesting link between trust and reputation. Many computational and theoretical models and approaches to reputation have been developed in recent years (for ecommerce, social networks, blogs, etc.). Further, identity and associated trustworthiness must be ascertained for reliable interactions and transactions. Trust is foundational for the notion of agency and for its defining relation of acting "on behalf of". It is also critical for modeling and supporting groups and teams, for both organization and coordination, with the related trade-off between individual utility and collective interest. The electronic medium seems to weaken the usual bonds of social control and the disposition to cheat grows stronger: this is yet another context where trust modeling is critical.

The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers (ideally from different disciplines) who can contribute to a better understanding of trust and reputation in agent societies. We welcome submissions of high-quality research addressing issues that are clearly relevant to trust, deception, privacy, reputation, security and control in agent-based systems, from theoretical, applied and interdisciplinary perspectives. Submitted contributions should be original and not submitted elsewhere. Papers accepted for presentation must be relevant to the workshop, and to demonstrate clear exposition, offering new ideas in suitable depth and detail.

The scope of the workshop includes (but is not limited to):

Trust and risk-aware decision making
Game-theoretic models of trust
Deception and fraud, and its detection and prevention
Intrusion resilience in trusted computing
Reputation mechanisms
Trust in the socio-technical system
Trust in partners and in authorities
Trust during coordination and negotiation of agents
Privacy and access control in multi-agent systems
Trust and information provenance
Detecting and preventing collusion
Trust in human-agent interaction
Trust and identity
Trust within organizations
Trust, security and privacy in social networks
Trustworthy infrastructures and services
Trust modeling for real-world applications

Authors should submit original papers (maximum length 12 single-columned pages) in PDF format through the Easychair system at:

The proceedings of the workshop will be published through To enable us to publish the workshop proceedings through CEUR at the time of the workshop we expect papers to be prepared using the template below.
