Call For Papers


The 8th International Workshop on Collaborative Agents Research & Development (CARE) -- CARE for a Smarter Society

In conjunction with the 29th Australasian Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (AI 2016), 6 December 2016, Wrest Point Hotel, Hobart, Australia

CARE workshop serie:


CARE for a Smarter Society? aims to discuss computational models, social computing, and intelligence applied to practical solutions for a Smarter Society. We seek a research agenda to foment the idealisation of new technologies, integration of academia-industry research endeavours, and lead to new industry opportunities.

The discussion will focus on socially relevant topics like smart cities, education, health, citizen participation, disaster support, community engagement, social simulation, and others. The drive is to promote a scientific discussion addressing the gap between R&D around disruptive technologies -- e.g. Multi-Agent Systems, AI, Social Computing, Cognitive Computing, Human-Cantered IoT -- and practical applications to social issues. The discussion will revolve around the following topics (non-exhaustive list):

- Computational models, representations, algorithms and protocols to enable the next generation of intelligent collaborative technologies.

- Application of currently disruptive technologies to the next generation social-cantered solutions

- Technologies for the next generation of Social Analytics systems in Smarter Societies

- Enabling effective communication infrastructure for collaborative society

- Frameworks for monitoring-recognition-intervention in practical scenarios like education, health, and smart cities

- Models of Adaptive Applications and Adjustable Content reactive to Social Behaviour

This half-day event will feature a mixture of invited talks, discussions and submitted contributions describing current work or work in progress in collaborative agent research and technology.

We expected to conclude with discussions around a research agenda to advance the field of collaborative technology and social computing, to foment innovative technologies, contribute to the academia-industry research integration, and promote social development.
