3 December 2013, 16th Workshop on Coordination, Organisations, Institutions and Norms (COIN 2013), Dunedin, New Zealand

Date: 3 December 2013
Location: Dunedin, New Zealand
Deadline: 23 September 2013

The pervasiveness of open systems raises a range of challenges and opportunities for technologies in the area of autonomous agents and multi-agent systems and in their contribution to human and artificial societies. Open systems comprise loosely-coupled entities interacting within a society, often with some overall measures of quality or efficiency. However, achieving and maintaining a 'good' society, such as through establishing and enforcing societial norms and policies, is difficult to achieve. There remains a need for tools and techniques for articulating or regulating interactions in order to make the system more effective in attaining collective goals, more certain for participants, or more predictable.

Coordination, organizations, institutions, and norms are four key governance elements for the regulation of open multi-agent systems, and the COIN workshops constitute a space for debate and exploration of these four elements that are central in the design and use of open systems. COIN@PRIMA'13 features a special track on agent-based modelling for policy engineering (AMPLE) in societies.

We seek to attract high-quality papers addressing mathematical, logical, computational, philosophical, and pragmatic issues related to the four aspects of COIN, and, further, papers taking up the challenges of complex societal systems. We invite the submission of short papers up to 6 pages and long papers up to 16 pages. Submission deadline: 23 September 2013
